Ever wondered what goes on in a beauty editor’s head? You’re about to find out! Over the next few months, I’ll be chatting all things fashion and beauty with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Up today? BeautyCon’s founder, Marina Curry.
SheKnows: What inspired you to start BeautyCon?
Marina Curry: After I started my own YouTube channel about fashion and beauty, I immediately wanted to connect with other people that were doing the same thing — not only because I wanted to meet them in person, but I also wanted to ask them questions on how they became so successful. I imagined how great it would be to have one place where all of my favorite bloggers, Pinners, YouTubers, Instagramers and everyone that I followed online can come together and BeautyCon was the perfect solution, so I went for it!
SK: I love that you’re partnering with I Am That Girl! Giving back is always beautiful. What other ways can women give back through beauty/fashion?
MC: You can give back to society by being confident and strong in your own skin. Every single person counts and together we make a big impact. I admire everyone in the BeautyCon community, putting themselves out there for the world to judge takes a lot of courage, but they prove that you don’t have to be a professional model or look a certain way to have your opinions listened to. On the surface it seems like it’s just about fashion and beauty, but it really is a much bigger movement!
SK: What are your top three beauty essentials?
SK: Where do you get your beauty and fashion inspiration from?
MC: I get my fashion and beauty inspiration from my favorite YouTubers, Pinners, bloggers and Instagramers!
SK: What’s your number one beauty tip?
MC: Eat healthy. What you put in your body affects the quality of your skin and makes you feel great, which is the best accessory of all!
SK: How would you describe your personal style?
MC: Beach casual. I live by the beach so I go most places in jeans and a T-shirt or a bright-colored dress!
SK: Looking great doesn’t have to cost a lot. What’s your best budget style tip?
MC: Mix and match. Also I am not afraid of repeating outfits as long as you have great friends that won’t make fun of you!!
