Today we are featuring one of the My Beauty Addiction Promotors and beauty blogger
Beauty with MsKimiKiwi.
We asked her a few questions to get to know the woman behind the art.
Real Name: Kimberly Michelle T.
Age: 22 (23 on July 6)
Question 1: How did you get started in the beauty industry?
I wouldn’t say that I’m in the “industry” — beauty + makeup is really just a hobby of mine. I would love to get into the industry in some way though!
Question 2: Did you have an artistic background growing up?
Honestly, I wouldn’t say that I was artistic growing up in the actual sense of the word. I was, however, very much into writing! I was the girl who would pick to do the 10 page essay over something else. I wrote a lot of poetry when I was younger — head in the clouds for sure. It’s something that I miss and wish that I took more time to do.
Question 3: What other things do you like to do besides makeup?
Besides makeup, I love to be out in nature with my husband. We like to go for walks around our little town as the sun is setting. We have just recently started getting into hiking too. I like experimenting with photography (nothing specific, just random shots). I like to spend a lot of time with my family (parents, brother…) too — family time is VERY important to us.
Question 4: Can you give us one at home beauty tip you live by?
My beauty tip is : when you’re in a rush, less is more! When I’m in a hurry, I make sure that I have some color on my cheeks and mascara to open up my eyes. That way, you still look fresh and awake! Sometimes it truly is about the “no makeup” look.
Question 5: Any advice for aspiring makeup artists/beauty bloggers?
If you want to get into beauty blogging/ vlogging make sure that you are doing what YOU want to do. Don’t get caught up in trying to be others’ clones. The “beauty world” is too saturated for copies and is actually something I’ve personally struggled with. I feel like I have to be doing the same types of videos as the “big gurus” and buy new stuff all the time to keep up with the latest and greatest — but it’s not really the way to go. Like everyone says, just BE YOURSELF because there is NOBODY else out there that is like YOU!
Question 6: What are your top 3 My Beauty Addiction products?
I love SO many things! Ahhh. I love the Color Rich Lipstick in Drama Queen. The whole Sea and Sand collection (I can’t just pick one!). The glitter palettes are also so much fun to play with!
