1. Tell me a little bit about yourself.
My name is Josephine Ruth Christianty. I'm 21 years old this year and currently on my last year of studying International Business Management in The University of Nottingham, Ningbo, China.
2. How did you become interested in beauty and make-up?
I like any kind of arts, and makeup for me is definitely one of that. Few years ago, I started to watch Youtube videos about product reviews and tutorials and many companies came up with amazing makeup trends that made me excited to try them all!
3. Any dreams and aspirations for beauty and make-up in the future?
I will create my own Youtube channel that contains Vlogs and any beauty related content soon and in the future, my dream is to have my own makeup factory where I can create and innovate.
4. How would you describe your style? Whats your fave look at the moment?
I usually go with simple eye look with bold lips, or neutral eyes with pop of color. But recently, I found that thematic makeup was so fun to create! My favorite look at the moment is matte warm toned eye look with fall colors liquid lipstick.
5. Where do you get your beauty, make-up inspiration?
Mostly from Youtube, Instagram, and Pinterest.
6. Where do you shop? What are your fave brands?
Basically, I like to buy US makeup brand from online shops because our country doesn't carry any Target or Ulta, even not that much in the Sephora haha So I always buy them from some trustworthy online shops that I found in Instagram. I personally like online shops that provide hand-carry service and some of them that I can recommend are: @peoniesandpiers and @blushybeaute (on Instagram)
7. Can you give a beauty tip for me please...?
Don't wear makeup as a mask, rather to enhance your facial features and inner beauty. Be comfortable and confident in your own skin, with and without makeup because every girls are pretty. Small tip: remove liquid lipstick with a lip balm to keep it hydrated!
