Today we introduce Taylor Blackwell, also known as @BlackstarrMU. I have been a fan of Taylor’s for a while, I first came across her Twitter profile when I was looking for some Halloween inspo. Once I stumbled upon her talent I was instantly hooked and I now follow her Insta too. We will give links to her socials a little later in this article but for now lets get down to the nitty gritty and commence our Q and A with Taylor.
All About Taylor....
Taylor is a 27 year old veterinarians assistant. Originally from Iowa but now resides in beautiful California with the love of her life, her wife Aurora.
The reason I enjoy not only Taylor’s work but her socials so much is because of the very positive message she sends. She wants everyone to be able to be creative as she feels it’s an outlet that can help when people fall on difficult times.
Makeup truly is her chosen creative outlet, it is her art form and the face is her canvas. The work she creates is absaloutley astounding, her skills are there for all to see, the intricate detail that’s goes in to each of her creations is a talent most of us only wish to posess.
Now that I have told you all the reasons the beauty and lifestyle blog loves Taylor lets get down to a quick Q and A with her, it will give you a chance to fall head over heels for her just as we and her countless adoring followers have.
Q & A With Taylor.....
We managed to grab Taylor for a quick interview. Read on to find out what she had to say.
Q1 How/when did you realize you had not just a passion but a real talent with makeup?
A1 My passion for makeup began in June of 2019. I started to practice my makeup application on myself more and more every day and realized I had a talent for it just recently in December 2019.
Q2 What are your 3 top products?
A2 My three most favorite products at the moment are Blend Bunny Cosmetics Blends Palette the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Volume 2 Pro Pigment Palette, and Hank and Henry Crème Blush Sticks. To be completely honest I think I would put number three joint second with the ABH Palette, it’s just way to difficult for me to chose.
Q3 What tip or trick that you have learned throughout your makeup journey was a game changer for you?
A3 Transitioning from just an eyebrow pencil to Dipbrow pomade and other products have really changed up my brow game!
Q4 Which cosmetics brand do you use most often?
A4 My most used makeup brand would have to be Anastasia Beverly Hills, with Hank and Henry Beauty as a very close second, or again, if I can bend the rules, I would make Hank and Henry beauty as joint first.
Q5 Are there any trends, looks, brands or products that you think or know will be big in 2021/22?
A5 I feel as though multiple cut creases, extreme blending, and more blush/colorful blush will become a new trend in 2020. As for a brand that will grow even more and be on trend will be Anastasia Beverly Hills, as Norvina is creating a lot more
Closing Personal Message: I want people to take away the idea that they can do anything they want when it comes to makeup . I want them to see they can express themselves in any way they choose! I wish to portray art, creativity, fun and skill. I want people to be able to see my growth and know that with persistence and practice they can do anything they set their mind to.
That concludes our second part of this fabulous five part series.
