1. How do you practice self-care?
I practice self-care by doing things that I like, for example, creating things with clay, listening to music, or sleeping without guilt.
2. What does your average day off look like?
I usually go out with my partner. I like to watch series with him. We also go for a walk or go to the beach.
3. How did you get into make-up? How did you continue to do it?
I became a make-up artist because my godfather told me that it was possible to make a career related to what I love doing the most. He helped me understand that I did not have to study something that I did not like. Nowadays, a lot of people study things they don’t like just because they feel they have to. I always liked to do make-up. When I was a child I used to secretly steal my mother's lipsticks and blushes.
4. Which advice would you give to yourself when you were younger?
The advice I would give to my younger self would be: don't spend so much time and effort on people who don't want to improve. It is better to dedicate that time to yourself, as selfish as it sounds.
5. What is your favorite jewelry from our website, and why?
My favorite jewelry from is the Beach Slipper Earrings because I love miniature objects!
