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

My style is laid back but pulled together. Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung would be my style icons.

What's in your everyday make-up bag?

A compact mirror, concealer, comb, cuticle oil, hand cream, hand sanitizer, and whatever lipstick I'm wearing that day.

What is your beauty routine like?

Nothing too crazy. I make sure to cleanse, tone, and exfoliate every night. I also use eye cream before going to sleep and in the morning after I wash up.

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

I think most celebrities would be better off without me trying to do their makeup. But I wouldn't mind giving Jennifer Lawrence a cool mani. She's so fun and down to earth. I think something functional but bold and fierce would look great on her.

Any tips for someone wanting to mix up their look?

I don't have an answer for makeup, but if you're looking to spice up your nails, I suggest starting out small by layering different glitters over your nail color. For something bolder, try cobalt or holographic nail polish.

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

I'm always searching for cool DIY bracelets to make. My hobbies include reading and writing.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Never limit yourself with the notion that you can't do something. If it's something you want to do, at least try.

What's your favorite...

TV Show
I'm obsessed with How I Met Your Mother.
I have favorite songs, but not really a favorite band. If I had to pick one, probably 2NE1?
New York (haven't been there yet) and Seoul (in S. Korea and have been there).
I have so many, but I love most Miyazaki films. 500 Days of Summer and Wreck-It Ralph also come to mind.
Lately, I'm digging Nylon magazine.
Beauty Brand
For beauty products, I use whatever works for me rather than sticking to one brand. For nail polish, I generally waver between OPI and China Glaze.
