Why do you think gravitated you towards creating beauty inspired content?

I honestly never thought about creating any other kind of content (aside from fashion – but I like to blend the two on my socials). It’s my favourite type of content to consume and to create!

What is your favourite thing about creating YouTube videos?

I really do love the entire process (brainstorming, filming, editing, thumbnails, posting, networking). That said, I love that YouTube has facilitated so many relationships with other creators and myself. I also love the opportunity to work with brands and discover new brands.

What are 5 beauty products you think every girl should own and why?

1. & 2. A good double cleanse routine (step one: an oil or balm emollient cleanser to breakdown dirt and makeup and step two: a gel or foaming cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the skin) 3. Eyebrow gel (coloured or clear, as long as it adds shape and definition) 4. Fragrance (one that makes you feel like the most confident version of yourself) 5. Lip gloss (so basic but so essential)

What is your favourite way to self-care?

An almost too hot shower, my weighted blanket and a good YouTube binge.

If you could create one beauty product what would it be and why?

It would probably be some type of dual use cream product, likely for lips and cheeks because those are two of my favourite products to play around with and purchase. The product colouring would be my ideal cool-toned pink.

What has been your most amazing moment since becoming an influencer?

Hands down the most amazing moment was the first time that I met a YouTube subscriber. I was out for breakfast with some YouTube friends in LA the morning before BeautyCon and a subscriber was sitting behind me with her family. The subscriber and her family introduced themselves and we took photos together. It was an unforgettable experience.

What is one piece of advice you’d offer to an aspiring youtuber?

Honestly just start. SO many people tell me that they would like to do YouTube but they don’t know where to start or don’t have the proper equipment to start. Or they say that they’re afraid of judgement, but that’s a whole different issue. I used my phone to film before hitting 500 subscribers, I filmed my first video sideways and showed myself washing my face for 20 minutes. It doesn’t matter how you start, your first 20 videos will probably “suck” according to the standards of your future self. Just start.

What are 3 songs that have to make it to your life’s soundtrack?

1. Gravity – John Mayer
2. Green Light – Lorde
3. Dancing Queen – ABBA

Appetizer and Main Course or Main Course and Dessert?

Appetizer and Main Course without a question. I almost always favour salty over sweet. Charcuterie spreads and salads with any type of cheese make the best appetizers. Also, I’m celiac so I often can’t eat the dessert options when I’m eating out anyways.

What is the last thing you googled?

Purito Centella Recovery Cream. I was picking out products for a collaboration with a brand so I was looking up product reviews on some of their products. I’m super into researching product reviews and ingredients before picking out product, especially when it comes to skincare!
