How did you get started? Did you set out to grow your Instagram following or did it come more naturally?
"When I first got started, I wanted to do YouTube for a long time. I kept putting it off and one day decided to just do it! I was nervous because I didn’t know how to edit or anything, but I watched hours and hours of videos and made my first video after a big Sephora sale/haul I did. I also tried to grow my Instagram following to help bring more people to my YouTube channel."
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own blog?
"Just do it. Once you start it won’t matter what took you so long to start, but it will all be worth it. If I could go back to the first day I decided I wanted to do this, I would have started it that day if I knew how much joy it would bring me."
You're stranded on a deserted island (with WiFi, thank goodness!) and can only use ONE form of social media, what would be it? Why?
"Instagram. I think it has become my favorite just because you can stay up to date on new releases, talk to so many different people, and it's a great way to keep up with just everything in general. I love scrolling through my feed everyday and just seeing what everyone else is up to."
What are some products you LOVE that you've discovered through social media and people you follow?
"I feel like I try to keep up to date on makeup products. Some brands I would have not known about had it not been for social media would be Natasha Denona (I love her eyeshadows), Wayne Goss, Smith Brushes, Makeup geek, Melt Cosmetics, and I love ordering from Beautylish, which I would have never known about if I didnt see it on social media."
