At age eighteen most people don`t know what they want to with their lives. They put themselves into a bunch of different scenarios hoping that their dream occupation will just fall into their lap. However, that is not the case for self-taught makeup artist Talia. She spends her days in front of a camera perfecting her makeup. She has found her “Happy place”. Currently, she is working hard in school as an early education major and hopes to one day own her own daycare. Bringing style and beauty to little girls and boys day by day!

We discussed the following:

ZI: What is it about doing makeup that you enjoy the most?

T: Doing makeup is my happy place. It’s where I can express myself and I love how I can transform my face without having to go under the knife.

ZI: What are your favorite makeup brands and product? Drugstore and non-drugstore.

T: My favorite products that I cannot live without would have to be La Pro Girl Conceal (drugstore) and my Modern Renaissance Palette by ABH (high end)

ZI: How did you begin doing makeup?

ZI: What has been your favorite beauty trend of 2016?

T:   Cut creases, although they are very tricky I have grown to love them.
