1) Why did you start blogging?
Several of my Friends, family members and former clients suggested that I start a beauty blog. They were always emailing me or scheduling Skype dates whenever they need beauty advise, questions on a product or help with a look for an event. I'm really enjoying this creative outlet, as well as, being able to make friends with people who have the same obsessions as myself.
2) What is your favourite lipstick colour?
Deep vampy reds, orange and purples.
3) Do you follow trends? Why, why not?
Not at all. I believe you should wear things based on your own personal taste, not on what someone else dictates.
4) When did you start wearing makeup?
Early, probably when I was in middle school, but not on a daily basis.
5) What does makeup/fashion mean to you?
a form of creation, transformation, and expression.
6) Who/what is inspiring you (makeup, fashion, life)? Why?
Music, films, and art. All these things evoke thought and emotion.
7) Who is your favorite fashion designer and why?
John Galliano, and Jean Paul Gaultier (but there are more). Their brilliance is maddening!
8) What is your passion (writing, singing, painting, etc.)?
Art, music, history, films, makeup, colors, knowledge, food.
9) Is there a beauty product everyone seems to dislike but you love it?
I don't know what I like that others may dislike???
10) What is your go to hair product? Why?
Deep Conditioning Hair Treatments.
11) What is your favourite place to shop and why?
Mitsukoshi in Ginza. Because it's my beauty version of Cheers..."Where everybody knows your name"...
