I just want to give a huge THANK YOU to Marie Claire magazine for featuring me in the July 2015 issue! It was a lovely experience meeting and working with assistant beauty editor Joy Hernon and photographer Mark Lim in St. Pete.

My lipstick is “Hexagram” from the Kat Von D collection at Sephora. It’s perfect for Spring/Summer. For Fall/Winter, I like wearing the “Vampira” shade from the collection.

My ultimate goal for this feature is to show young girls who look like me that they should be proud of their brown skin, full lips, and natural hair. Don’t let society determine your self-esteem and confidence. We are all beautiful just the way we are! What counts most, though, is the beauty inside.
