What drives you?

Knowing that I am made for beauty vlogging. I’ve been living this lifestyle off camera for years, and now that I’ve found a place I belong I feel driven to keep going.

What is the best aspect of creating content (blogging, vlogging, etc)?

Having a trusting relationship with my following. I don’t even like saying ‘following’ because it makes me feel like we are too far apart. In my mind, I have thousands of friends, and they trust my reviews. They know if its #TinaKApproved, it’s worth the purchase. That feeling is the best!

What you have learned about the various platforms you create content for over the last 2 years since you started?

Each platform engages your personality with your viewers in all different ways. Youtube and Instagram are my favorites.

What does your audience mean to you?

Everything! I wouldn’t be where I am without an audience to appreciate it.

What do you think is the biggest misconception about being a vlogger?

That you are paid to lie. At this point it’s hilarious. You can’t mention a thing without someone questioning your authenticity. I do my best to ensure my following that even if I did receive payment, I still didn’t lie. Vloggers get to choose what they talk about no matter what.

What are 3 products you’re obsessed with at the moment?

The Loreal Lumi Cushion, Nars Audacious Lipstick in Dolce Vita, and Koko Lashes in Misha.

You’re going out for dinner and drinks with the girls. What color lipstick are you wearing? Any particular brand?

A really good nude! Something that you can keep applying. My go to is Mac in Velvet Teddy.

You’re going on a date and you’re going for sultry lashes. Do you choose strip lashes or extensions?

Strip lashes! It’s a great way to change it up just for the night.

It’s festival season and you’re shopping for bronzer. Which one do you buy?

Benefit Hoola Bronzer, it has a great neutral undertone to give you a sexy bronze for any time of the day or stage you’re walking over to.

You’re about to be on long flight. What product do you never fly without?

Flights of any distance are so drying. I make sure my purse is loaded with the moisture essentials. I always bring moisturizing facial spray, lip balm, hand cream, hand sanitizer, and a very hydrating face moisturizer.

Skincare tips? Secrets?

Wash off your makeup. Vitamin C oil. Avoid the sun. Lots of water. It’s as simple as that. And my not-so-secret-secret is that I drink a ton of tea, especially tea with Rooibos. The Rooibos gives my skin a natural radiance. It just glows!
