FAQ A Southern Drawl
Where are you from? I’m from Louisville, KY–born and raised.


What camera do you use? I use a Canon 6D with either a 50mm f1.2L lens or 85mm f1.2L lens. We use the 85mm when we’re in more of a rural setting and the 50mm when we’re somewhere downtown.

Is it hard managing school and having a blog? At times, it gets difficult. I try to write out my posts ahead of time on Sundays, so that I won’t have to fiddle around with them when I’m trying to study during the week.

How did you learn how to do your makeup? Trial and error. I’ve learned what colors work best for my face, how to contour, etc. To me, it’s kind of like painting, you have to make sure everything is blended and looks natural.

What do you use to fill in your eyebrows? I use the Anastasia Brush {#12} with the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade–it’s perfect for your brows and allows for precise control.

Biggest beauty secret? I swear by bareMinerals Well-Rested powder. It brightens your under eyes magically, and it also works to highlight the rest of your face for contouring purposes.

What is your facial routine? All of the facial cleansing and moisturizing products I use come from bareMinerals. My favorite would have to be their Biolucent cream that I use every morning and every night. I also use the Clarisonic Mia 3 nightly, which helps exfoliate my skin and clean makeup residue from my face.

Any advice on blogging? Invest in a DSLR! You won’t be disappointed.
