Read my latest contribution to @dazedbeauty’s article by @kristenvbateman: “Does intellectual property exist in the beauty community?” 💄✍🏼 Swipe up on my story to read the full article. ✨

Multiple-eye and facial feature looks have always been a crucial part of my journey because these looks really kickstarted my career in 2016. While I don’t claim to have invented the concept, I’d like to think that I played a large role in popularizing it. When I created one of my first multiple-feature blurry-faced looks inspired by motion photography, the concept exploded on social media and immediately began trending amongst the makeup artist community. Artists from around the world recreated this same look. Through continually exploring this style, I had the opportunity to collaborate with @beck and @capitolrecords during the same year. I created unique, surreal, multiple-feature looks to promote the launch of his song “WOW”. This further helped popularize the illusion genre and the “eye” trend in the creative makeup world. Since then, I’ve produced many different multiple-eye looks inspired by my own dreams, painters that I admire like @alexgarantart, and digital artists like Matthieu Bourel.⁣
⁣
When @kristenvbateman of @dazedbeauty asked me how I felt about other artists reproducing my unique concepts without credit, my immediate thought was that most of all, I am flattered and humbled to be able to inspire people from all over the world. Although there are times when I question the intentions of certain artists (as discussed in the article), I don’t focus much energy on these situations because I know that nobody can predict what I will create next. I choose to use negative energy that comes my way to motivate myself, lift me up, and improve on my artistry. 💫⁣

INSPIRED BY MY FEARS — My feature and interview with @truecallingmedia is now live. ✨⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It was a pleasure to be able to share my story with @truecallingmedia while I was demonstrating for @makeupartistmag at IMATS Vancouver @imatsofficial this year. It’s an amazing feeling to realize something that I thought was a hindrance to my life actually ends up to be a blessing in disguise. Life really turns around when you learn to see the positive within the negative. ⁣#sleepparalysis ⁣⁣

I will be uploading the full interview on my IGTV soon!
