How has being a beauty blogger influenced your life?
My life has changed tremendously since I have become a blogger! I've always shared tips with my friends, but now I just have a bigger audience, which I really appreciate! I truly believe my calling in life is to help women feel better about themselves! I struggled a lot with beauty flaws over the years and I find it really helps to share how I have overcome them. I think it's also important to stress, anyone can be beautiful on the outside, but when you are happy and a good person from the inside, beauty kind of radiates naturally!
What's your personal makeup style?
My personal makeup style is definitely a mix between east and west. It's not so heavy. I like makeup that really accentuates your beauty and makes you look more beautiful! I always say this and I can't emphasize this enough, it really should look like you are beautiful, not your makeup. If it looks like your makeup is beautiful and not you, you might be wearing too much!
