My Behind the Screens series continues with Jocelyn, the girl behind XOBeautybyJ. From Mexico, she is 20 years old, currently in school to be an esthetician. She loves makeup, skin care, anything beauty related. Jocelyn’s goal is to open up her own spa, while also doing makeup and waxing. Jocelyn talks about how you should never sleep with your makeup on and to stay away from all negativity.
What were you doing before blogging and how did you get into it?
I used to do just basic make-up. I used to wear just mascara and foundation. I started watching YouTube tutorials and wanted to learn a little more. I dug a little deeper and kept buying makeup, I couldn’t stop!
Who is your biggest influence?
The two people who really inspired me to get into make-up are Desi & Katy. I love their personality and creativity.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t sleep with your makeup on! You will regret it, I did it once… never again.
That’s the worst, in the morning your face feels all clogged up and disgusting. Same as you, done once, never again!
What do you do in your spare time?
Create colorful looks, do Snapchat tutorials, and sometimes try to do different hairstyles. Let me tell you, hair is not my thing.
Favourite beauty brands at the moment?
My number one favorite brand is NYX Cosmetics. I also love Morphe Brushes, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Wet n wild, and BH Cosmetics.
What one product couldn’t you live without?
It would probably be my phone! Beauty wise, is my Morphe 35O palette.
Three words to describe you
Creative, bold, outgoing.
Drugstore or high-end gal?
Drugstore for sure!
Best advice to bloggers.
Do what you love doing, don’t let anyone tell you different. Don’t get discouraged, and ignore all negativity! Surround yourself with positive vibes and you’ll do just fine.
