Q&A interview :
Q: When did you fall in love with the art of makeup?
A: I fell in live with makeup about 2 years ago. I was walking in a wedding and it was the first time i was ever required to wear full face makeup and so days before the wedding i asked my sister if she could do my makeup for me so i could see what its like. From that day on I was in love
Q: What inspired you to start a Youtube page?
A: The youtube page MOCHA SWEETIES features my cousin Tracy and I. I my self wanted to start the youtube page because youtube is an open forum where you just bounce ideas back and forth and I wanted to share my thoughts and creativity and also learn new things as well. Ive always had a youtube account and when you watch the videos, depending on what your passion is you realize hey I can do this too. All you need is a camera and a movie editor and you’re good.
Q: From your Perspective do you think makeup is a tool of style or a mask to hide imperfections?
A: I think that makeup is something that’s used for style but also it enhances features. Lets say for instance you are going on a date and you are wearing a simple plain black dress. You want to add a little more pow or element of sexy to your outfit. Make up can help you with that but giving you a more seductive look by adding a nice smokey eye. But also lets say you have a chubby face and you want your face to appear a little more slim you can always do a really great contour to bring out your cheek bones that are there but just don’t stand out as much. Make up is very versatile. everyone uses it for their own personal reason, but in the end I think it just helps us express ourselves better.
Q: Summer is right around the corner,what are some of your style tips to transform from day to night?
A: Summer is quickly approaching and it is my favorite season especially because I am a summer baby. Many of us have jobs so we always want that neutral look it the day time but then a very fun night look for when you go out for drinks or wherever with friends at night. One way that i think you can transform from day to night is by first of course going for the more subtle neutral palettes to do your day time eye makeup. Then at night go for a very dramatic winged out eye liner and a very bold lip color.
Q: What cosmetic item you’d advise a girl to never leave the house without ?
A: A cosmetic item that I advise no women should leave their house without would have to be lipstick. You must always carry your lipstick. Think about it, you are always using your mouth. You talk all day, eat, and drink, your lipstick is bound to wear off. You are always going to have to reapply. Plus, you always want to keep a nice freshly coated lip.
She adds :
Makeup is something that I never thought I would like. i remember when I was younger I would see my sister doing her makeup and I’d be like roe how can you put all that on your face. Even tip this day I still have to get use to having a bold lip color on. I always go for the neutral colors. But for the summer I’m going to take my own advise and go for that bright pink or vibrant purple lip at night that stands out. Makeup gives you the ability to come into your own. Id compare it to getting a new outfit. You know when you have a new outfit everything new from your head to the tip of your towed you feel good. That’s how makeup makes you feel. It gives you that damn I’m hot element. Not that you’re not hot without it but its just a little extra umph!
