What is one piece of fashion or beauty advice?
Whatever you are wearing, wear it with confidence. A woman with confidence always looks great and attracts greatness to her. In addition – be self-aware. Know your body shape, face shape, and undertone so that you can dress accordingly. Knowledge is power and is key to a great look.
How long does it take you to do your makeup?
On a daily basis it takes me five minutes to do my makeup: foundation, mascara, blush, and gloss – boom – great look and off I go!
If someone calls you beautiful, how do you react? Accept the compliment or deny it?
I smile bigger and say “thank you”! For someone to take the time out of their day to pay me a compliment that means something. So I accept it and have a bit of an extra pep in my step!
What advice would you give to a young girl on how to feel beautiful and confident?
Be you and believe in you no matter what. Makeup and nice clothes are the uniforms we wear – they accessorize who you are. This world is competitive and although makeup and nice clothes are not what make you who you are, it helps distinguish you from the rest. Why? Because a person who takes the time to look professional and well put together, is someone who others want to work with.
