1. Who’s your celebrity inspiration for hair? Makeup? Fashion style? (can be different answers for each)
As crazy as it sounds, my celebrity inspiration for hair right now is Niki Minaj. I love the fact that she takes risks with her hair (though not all of them are good! LOL)! I sometimes think of my hair as an accessory too and she definitely has fun with hers! For makeup, I look up to Queen Latifah because her looks are always effortless and flawless! Fashion is tricky because I take inspiration for all celebs, as long as it fits me and my personality.
2. What 3 makeup items can’t you live without?
My Mary Kay Liquid foundation is definitely one of them. It has been the only foundation to date that gives me the sheer coverage I need. Another one would have to be my Avon Extra Lasting lip gloss in Constant Coral. I love the color and it does last most of the day. My third item is definitely my Too Faced Full Frontal eyeshadow. It’s a brown color with a little shimmer and it always brings out my eyes for a great natural look.
3. How would you describe your style?
My style is definitely accessory driven! I sometimes base my whole outfit on a particular accessory I want to wear! Though I’ve been a tomboy most of my life and will still rock my jeans and Reeboks when the feeling moves me, I can be a girly girl too with cute dresses and bold colored tops. Regardless of what I wear though, it has to be comfortable!
4. Do you have a signature look or item that you are known for?
My funky accessories, especially my earrings! My family and friends know how much of a fanatic I am when it comes to super huge earrings! I have hoops you can put your hand through! My fashion jewelry is currently overflowing out of a two section jewelry box and shoe box! It’s so addictive!
5. What’s your favorite makeup trend of all time? favorite fashion look?
My favorite makeup trend is the smoky eye because anyone can rock that and there are so many different ways to achieve the look. My favorite fashion look is denim! Jeans have and forever will be the most versatile piece of clothing to me and will never go out of style!
6. What upcoming fashion and beauty things are you most looking forward to for fall?
I’m looking forward to the shoes most of all! I love boots and though I live in Florida and can’t rock the thigh highs like I want to, I can still get some ankle boots that are cute an still hot weather friendly! I’m also ready to try my hand at the sequins trend! I love the new designs coming out and would be a great way to amp up my wardrobe.
7. What drew you to blogging? What blogs inspire you?
I actually started blogging when I entered a contest on Yahoo! Shine to be a Beauty Guru last year. I wanted to get back to my writing after my original life plan didn’t pan out and grabbed the opportunity. Once I won that, I realized I can do this beauty blogging thing and it took off so fast, I’m just now catching up to everything! So many blogs inspire me but to name of few of the ones I’m truly digging are Where Did U Get That
(the photography and outfits are AMAZING!), grit and glamour
(her personality and fashion sense is awesome!), and Yahoo! Shine
(that’s my first blogging home and the community always inspires me!)
8. If you could trade looks with any celebrity, dead or alive, whom would it be?
It would have to be Alicia Keys. She looks gorgeous in anything she wears while maintaining that urban swagger. A tomboy-turned-girly-girl can truly appreciate that!
