Starting a YouTube channel and putting yourself out there for the masses to critique and adore can be pretty intimidating. The fear of who will critique and who will adore keeps many people from taking the first step. But beauty enthusiast, Alexa Dolmo, decided to put her fears to the side and start her YouTube channel anyway.
Dive into our interview with her to find out how she found the courage to enter the YouTube world and the one tip she recommends to every women who wears makeup!
It takes a lot of confidence to expose yourself to the YouTube world. What advice do you have for women who lack confidence?
Well, I was not always a confident person. I struggled with it a lot because I was afraid to have people laugh at me for being me. The first step to gain confidence is self- love, and this is the best advice I could give to women who struggle with this. Don't ever be afraid to be yourself and try to ignore all negative comments.
The art of makeup has come such a long way and is continuing to expand. How do you keep your creativity and stay original?
I keep my creativity by following the weather. Sounds crazy right? Usually when it is sunny, I like to play more with colors and when it’s cloudy or raining, I love using cool/dark tones. My signature look is a natural glam with a bold lip. I love it!
What got you interested in becoming a beauty enthusiast?
I've always loved beauty. I used to watch my mom do her makeup when I was younger and I wanted to be just like her. She's always been my inspiration and once I turned 16 years old, I started taking it more serious and I knew then I wanted to grow in the makeup industry.
What is your ultimate goal as a makeup artist?
My goal is to grow as a makeup artist and build my own makeup brand and skin care products. I want to be my own boss and run my own business one day and make my family proud.
If you could only share one beauty tip, what would that be and why?
Ladies, the tip to a flawless makeup starts with your skincare. Find the right product for your skin type and treat your skin every single day. Your skin is the most important part of our body and it needs to be taken care of.
