How would you describe your style and who are your style icons?

My style is very dramatic. I loved big winged liner and making shadows look metallic. I also love nude, matte lipstick, and cool toned blush. My style icons in the beauty world would be Pat McGrath because she is always coming up with new ideas and techniques. I love her edgy style, but also her ability to do natural beauty flawlessly.

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

In my everyday make-up bag I have my Inglot no. 77 gel liner, NARS Sheer Glow foundation, Charlotte Tilbury 'Iconic Nude' lipliner, NARS 'Oasis' blush, and MAC eyeshadows.

What is your beauty routine like?

My beauty routine when I'm not doing make-up for Instagram is usually to moisturize with Tatcha Pore Perfecting Water Gel, I then use a Make-Up Forever Primer. My face routine is usually Nars foundation, MAC Pro Longwear concealer. Anastasia Beverly Hills banana powder and contour powder in fawn, and a NARS blush. I also use Becca Cosmetics Highlighter in 'Opal'. For eyes I prime my eyes using Urban Decay primer potion, and usually opt for a simple brown smokey eye. I then apply mascara and false lashes. For less dramatic lashes I would use the Ardell Wispies. Eyebrows are then applied with a brow pencil, I usually use a Benefit Cosmetics brow pencil in No. 2. I then usually opt for a nude lip. My favorite duo is the Charlotte Tilbury 'Iconic Nude' liner with Stila Cosmetics 'Caramello'. To finish the look I spray Urban Decay Setting Spray.

If you could makeover a celebrity, who would it be and what look would you give them?

I wouldn't say I would necessarily want to makeover a celebrity, however, there are many celebrities that I would love to do make-up on. I think Mila Kunis and Angelina Jolie would be amazing to apply make-up on because they have such amazing eyes. I would love to see how different make-up styles would look on them.

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

For someone wanting to mix up their look I would say to try stuff that is out of their comfort zone. I also try new technique or new colors that I would't necessarily always use. I find sometimes when I try new things it ends up being really well received and it helps me gain confidence in my skills as an artist.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

My main hobby is photography. I love capturing really interesting nature scenes and animals. Sometimes I use pictures I've taken for color inspirations for my make-up looks.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
