Sunday thoughts… It’s so important to love what you do and do what you love. Many social media friends lately are concerned about their number of views on YouTube. As YouTube continues to grow and evolve, it’s harder than ever for your content to be found. You’re not alone, low views is the norm for most of us these days. ☺️ My advice is don’t worry about any of that, focus on creating content because it’s what you genuinely love to do. My friends, please don’t let numbers dictate your inner dialogue or self worth. Try not to get caught up in comparing yourself with anyone else. Don’t equate numbers, income or perceived popularity with your talent, skills, ability and where you’re going in the future. You are a one of a kind priceless treasure of this universe. #truth

A member of Kat Von D’s makeup artistry collective, you can expect an array of wacky looks from this vegan makeup artist – think bleached eyebrows, fun coloured eyelashes and a smudged-out orange lip look. Great for those who aren’t afraid to go bold.
