What does a day in your life look like?
A day in my life is getting my crazy 3-year-old ready for the day to my mom’s house. Then, heading to work which is a cosmetology school. I am an esthetician instructor. I teach the evenings and nights about five different courses and then go straight home and pick up the baby. Sometimes I have a movie night with him and start the whole day over again.
How did your journey to becoming a makeup creator on Clapper begin?
I started doing videos for facials for my students. They asked if I had a different platform and I found Clapper and I fell involve with it because I could just be myself. I started blogging, adding skin facts and that’s how I started. Then, I had a lot of people ask how I do my daily makeup on a daily basis, so I made videos about it. I began the makeup wars movement and they seem to love it.
What defines you as a content creator? What sets you apart from other makeup artists?
I am an esthetician instructor so that is my whole thing; skin. Being in the beauty industry, and knowing more about it sets me apart. I talk a lot about how to take care of your skin. If the base of your skin is not in good condition, your makeup will not look as great or stay for a long time. I like to teach about skincare and mix it with makeup.
Aside from your beautiful makeup tutorials, you are all about skincare. What is your ultimate advice for people to take care of their skin?
Having a daily skin care regimen. You can target different areas of the face this way and drink plenty of water. Our skin does it’s best when it’s nice and hydrated followed by a good skin care regimen.
What do you like the most about Clapper?
As a whole, I just love the community. You get to meet so many different people. It has gotten me out of my comfort zone and being who I am. This is not an app you get on and do trends, you make friends and family. There are so many movements, collabs, the town halls, not other app does that.
In what ways do you feel it needs improvement?
I love how we did cookouts when Fourth of July happened, I think doing more events like that where the whole Clapper community participate would be better. Something big that everybody can be a part of.
What advice would you give new users who want to be successful on Clapper app?
Reach out as many people as possible. Jump on livestreams, get to know people and build a relationship with them. I think that is what makes people successful. Not so much paying attention to the numbers of followers, but to really connect with the few followers that you have. Build a little community of your own with your friends. Once you build that relationship with people, when people join they will want to get to know you as you are.
What are your goals and aspirations for the future of your account?
I would love to incorporate more skin related videos and do meetups where I could give people facials. That would be an amazing goal of mine. I would either give them a facial or do their makeup and get to meet different Clapper creators. Another one is help people who have problems with their skin and give them advice on skincare routines.
