~Lets get Started
What’s the story behind the name of your blog?
I really wasn’t sure what to name a blog. I never had one. So even though it’s pretty basic and probably sounds like most beauty blogs out there. I basically just combined my name with the word beauty. Everyone I know calls me Jay, so why not just add that into the name of it? Thus, Jaybeauty was born. Maybe I’ll change it in the future but for now, I actually think it fits well.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Although I never been, Dubai has always caught my attention. It’s the most beautiful city-state. Everything from the beaches to the desert. The lifestyle seems so exotic. I just love the way it looks, it must be amazing to wake up every morning to such a beautiful city. Despite the fact that everything there is pretty lavish-living, just the futuristic look of the city makes me feel like I belong there. Just looking at pictures gets wanting to get up and go there. The night life, the resorts, everything seems like a dream. Even though I don’t see myself being able to live there unless I make millions. I do hope to visit one day, and hope to cross such an experience from my travel list.
What is your favourite lipstick brand and shade?
Right now it’s been the Bobbi Brown lipstick, in the shade Rose. I got it as a gift from my boyfriend, and he surprisingly chose a really great color! The name is a little misleading, you would think rose would be pink but this lip shade is actually a darker mauve color almost. Still beautiful and haven’t stopped using it since I got it!
If you could give your 16 year old self of piece of advice, what would It be?
“Don’t be afraid to try new things” ~ Now that I’m older, I grew so much self confidence. I got myself into the make-up world and wasn’t afraid to show myself how beautiful I really was. When I was around 15 or 16, I was very insecure about myself. I never wanted to do anything I thought was going to make me look weird, or where people were going to make fun of me. So I didn’t wear nice clothes or did my make up like all the other girls, I always kept to myself and didn’t really come out of my shell. I had a pretty set daily schedule of what I would do and never tried anything new, I was just afraid too. Thinking about that now, I wish I wasn’t so afraid. I wish I would have felt the confidence to try new things and get myself into everything like I do now. Having that experience though, helps me to help others not to be afraid to come out of their shell, to show who they are and embrace what they love to do, whether its beauty, fashion, music, etc. Don’t be afraid to try new things. You never know where it’ll take you early on in your life. Don’t wait.
High heels or flats?
Girl. It’s gotta be the high heels. Dresses up ANY outfit.
What are the top 3 things on your bucket list?
- I mentioned this already, but it’s to visit Dubai ❤
- Visit the leading cities of the fashion world. Mainly, Paris, London, Florence, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Berlin, Madrid. Theres a larger list. I want to experience these amazing cities.
- This one is a little corny. But I LOVE cars…I’m such a girly girl, but I really do enjoy them lol. So the last thing on my list is to drive a really really expensive car. Idk maybe Like a lambourghini, or an Aston Martin or something crazy like a Bugatti. I HAVE driven a Maserati though so I crossed that one off my long list haha. Other people might have things like jump out of a plane or back pack in Europe, but nope. Not me. I just want a to drive nice cars.
How would you spend your perfect day?
You really wanna know?
Probably out shopping. With a Starbucks Iced coffee that magically refills itself, and of course i’d be using the unlimited amount of dollars that appear in my bank account. Duh. I’d probably buy out all the Sephoras in my state too, and pet stores. just saying. But that seems to be the only thing I consider a perfect day for me.
What would be your best beauty tip?
My best beauty tip? For all of us winged eyeliner girls, I’ve been doing this for awhile. We all know how tough it might be to get both eyes to match and to get them nice on the first stroke. What I actually do, and this is for the girls that use a gel pot with a brush or a precision liquid liner tip, but I use a regular light eyeliner pencil and veryyy lightly draw out my liner to exactly where I want it. The lighter it is, the easier it is to fix any mistakes if you have any. After you have it to exactly where you want it, trace right over it with your darker choice of eyeliner and it should make it much easier to make it look a lot more perfect rather than go for it all at once. Now I’m sure if your a pro winged liner artist thing, than you probably don’t need this advice, but this is good for those who are just starting out! try it out I promise it works!
New York or LA?
I must say, LA. I live about 2.5 hours away from New York so I can pretty much just go whenever I’d like. But LA has always been a place of interest for me, just to visit. I love the California vibe, I think it’s a pretty awesome place to live, minus the traffic which I hear is the worse in the U.S.. But either way, visitor wise, I would LOVE to visit key places in LA.
Do you have a Celebrity Icon/Muse?
YES. And I actually want to feature 2. I don’t know about you guys, but I love Kendall Jenner. She is my beauty Idol. I just adore her. Her love for modeling, her feature in the VS fashion show and just all around. I think she’s beautiful. Not only do I love her because of her success and how pretty she is, I always always get told that I resemble her a tad bit which makes me so happy. haha.
My second Idol, who is a youtuber, is someone that i’ve been following for a very very long time. Her name is Weylie Hoang. I started watching her when I came across one of her videos called How to put on a tampon. After I watched this I absolutely LOVED her, she was so funny and such an inspiration. I now follow her vlogs every single day, and watch almost all of her beauty tip videos. She’s such a beautiful person inside and outside. Her love for animals, and her dedication to her channel is such an inspiration. Her relationship with her boyfriend, gives girls hope that there are great guys out there. She has such an interesting life, she really does inspire me to be grateful for so much in my life. Dying wish: To meet her. Check out her channel! Subscribe to her and check her out. She’s the sweetest human being. Love you Weylie and Wah! ❤
