How did you first get into makeup?
I was in dance in school, we had to do makeup for shows, so it just sort of happened.
How do you feel like your love for makeup has changed from when you first started?
What started out as a little hobby has turned into my ultimate form of self expression!
Who is your number one makeup inspiration and why? Top influencers?
Sir John and Mario. These are the top men in makeup and really know how to slay a face. I’ve learned so many things from both of them! My favorite influencers are @Neonmua, @laurrrelyse, @glamgawwd_1990, @yagirltoomuch and @thebronzemarley
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now makeup-wise?
Somewhere showing people that black boys in makeup deserve just as much spotlight as anyone else!
What is one product you can’t live without and why?
MILK Makeup Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder. It literally sets so beautifully and once you hit it with that spray your makeup just melts into your skin!
What has been your biggest milestone/achievement when it comes to makeup?
My 1023Luxe lash collaboration was the most exciting thing to happen to me this year!
Anything you'd like the world to know?
