Where do you find inspiration for your makeup looks?
I’m constantly on TikTok. The TikTok girlies are most likely influencing me, for sure. But I also like to pull from anime and video games. Sometimes, I’ll just look at my plants, hear a song, match my outfit, or even recreate the flavor of a snack.
Was it difficult for you to pack for the show?
I had a really hard time, especially because I don’t really plan my looks. I wake up and just feel the vibe of the day, so I needed to pack versatile beauty products: all of my water-activated liners for intricate looks, Tarte Shape Tapes, 17 different setting sprays — because ya never know. Half of what I brought was beauty.
What’s the one product that you can’t live without?
That’s literally the hardest! Like choosing my favorite child ... I have to say it’s my Pat McGrath eyeshadow palette. Because it’s neutral but also has color, and I can probably do a whole face with everything in there.
Who do you consider a beauty icon?
Obviously, the Spice Girls. They were giving us range — simply put. And I just have to give a shoutout to my queen Lady Gaga. I was a Little Monster from eighth grade until now and wrote my entire personal statement [for college] about her.
