Explain to our readers what exactly a digital creator is.
A digital creator to me is a person that shares his or her creativity online. It could be done through a photograph, or a video, but definitely something that’s distributed electronically.
What inspired you to start your YouTube channel?
I started my YouTube channel when I discovered my passion for beauty and makeup, and I wanted to share about it and connect with other women who shared the same passion as me.
What is your favorite and least favorite thing about creating for your YouTube channel?
My favorite thing about creating content for my YouTube channel is when I post, and people get to watch my videos, we have fun conversations in the comments. I get to discover that other people are loving the same products that I share about and I also get to discover new tips and recommendations from my audience. It’s literally having cyber best friends, because I get to connect with people from other countries that I would have never connected with if it wasn’t for my YouTube channel. It is also very rewarding to see that my beauty and makeup tips/tutorials are helpful for many people who watch my videos.
The least favorite thing about creating videos is the editing part because depending on the video, it can take me a whole day to edit sometimes.
What advice would you offer to someone contemplating starting their own YouTube channel?
I would advise to make sure you pick a niche that you are really passionate about. When you talk and share about things that you are passionate about, creating content becomes very easy and people will connect better with you. Additionally, consistency is key. Having a YouTube channel is actually a big commitment and it takes time and dedication.
What beginner equipment and editing tools would you suggest to a new youtuber?
The 3 most essential items are a good quality camera, good lighting and an editing software. You don’t have to invest a lot of money to start but make sure that you have a good phone camera or a decent camera. I would suggest to invest in a ring light, unless you have access to a window with natural light. And lastly, a software to edit. I am a MacBook user and I started with the free iMovie software that my computer had and I later upgraded to Final Cut Pro.
What’s one thing that you haven’t done that you’d like to do?
I would love to attend Fashion Week in New York… hopefully soon I have the opportunity to attend.
What are some makeup tips and tricks you can offer to our readers?
Make sure that you follow a skincare routine, and that you prepare your skin before applying makeup. Having a smooth and hydrated canvas would make your makeup look flawless. Also, sometimes less is more. Get to know your face because what works for others may not work for you.
What are three skincare tips you can offer to our readers?
Always remove your makeup before going to bed. Use a vitamin C serum every morning and start using anti-aging products in your early 20s please. Thank me later.
If we give you $100.00, what beauty products would buy that you don’t currently own?
I would probably buy the new Fenty Beauty cream bronzers and cream blushes they just released. I would love to try them soon.
What’s the last thing you googled and why?
This question is putting me on the spot but I actually just got some Carnation flowers recently and I googled how to care for them.
