BEING A WOMAN OF COLOR WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE BEAUTY CONTENT YOU PRODUCE AND HOW ARE YOU SETTING YOURSELF APART?
being a woman of color is my pride. black women are the blueprint and trendsetters of so many things when it comes to beauty and fashion so it’s important to me to be a part of Culture too you know. I am setting myself apart by changing my looks but always keeping my own identity and energy. every day is a new era.
WHAT FASHION TREND IS OVER IN YOUR EYES?
every fashion trend lives forever in my eyes. even if I find it “ugly” fashion is subjective so a trend will always stay a trend. I love how “dead” trends are always coming back and some people can rock it perfectly.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR 16-YEAR-OLD SELF?
you are far from being a woman yet, even if you think you already know everything about life and about yourself it is not the case. you have so many things to learn. appreciate this beautiful baby face and beautiful body. everything you want to be and want to have will come in due time, you’re gonna work for this so don’t force anything to come faster than it should.
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHEN CREATING CONTENT?
the most important part is very simple: having the right energy. don’t force yourself to do something that is not you and don’t be lazy. follow your vision until you’re proud of it, until it is how you’ve pictured it. if you have a specific vision and direction for what you’re creating do everything to make it happen and don’t let yourself or your ideas down.

shine even more in my twenties and travel the world. the rest is a secret. trust your lucky star

How do you think the creator space has changed?
the current creator space is way more inclusive, it has changed social media for the better 100%. when I started Instagram in 2014 I wanted to be the perfect Instagram baddie, as a black woman from the countryside of France, only looking up to white rich American creators made me feel like I could never be “like them”. if you know you know. now I look up to the right people. all you need is to be on the right side of the Internet and find the creatives you truly love and that can inspire you or just make your days a little bit better.
