What piqued your interest in the world of glamour and make-up?
As a kid, I was bullied harshly and what kept me going was looking at the latest trends and watching You tube videos on make-up and fashion. This was and is still kind of my way of expressing myself. For about 4 years I’ve been learning beauty tips and tricks to enhance natural exquisiteness. Also, wearing make-up and following trends boosted my confidence and it’s what kept me going. My interest grew along the years and I decided to make it more than a hobby.

How did you get involved in video makings?
I watched a video on youtube which made me make my own. I started to make make-up videos, basically ‘How to videos’ related to the Fashion world. But then came the negative feedback, and being a 12 year old girl, I felt torn down. I stopped. With time and maturity gained, I hit back with more confidence and a new perspective of what I want.

I then started to make videos of one of my major hobbies-singing. Gaining quite a pretty big audience for a teenage girl, I decided to make something bigger and better, giving advice to people mainly youngsters. So, I came up with the idea of making mini movies narrating about teenage problems and how they can be overcome. This is an interactive way to make teenagers watch and learn how to deal with their problems in life and also to encourage them to pursue their dreams.

You have to work with many people. What have been your most challenging and most satisfying moments?
Well, first of all you have to be understanding and patient. Throughout the years, I’ve worked with many amazing people but my most challenging and satisfying moment both happened at the same time. One of my cousins was getting married; she wanted to do an up-do which a lot of beauty salons told her is not possible. Knowing that this was my forte, she asked me if we could do some trials on her. With the help of my other cousins, we made her dream look come true. Her reception was a magical moment-just like a princess in a fairytale. And learning that she hitched lots of compliment for her up-do made me the happiest person on earth. I was like “for once in my life, people are appreciating what I do, and it is the best feeling in the world.’’

Mauritian skin tones are very unique. What tips would you offer a novice who is applying make-up?
If you are a beginner and you have just started experimenting with make-up, I would advise you to choose subtle and neutral colours for eyeshadows. Don’t choose the bright and vivid colours just because you feel they are more attractive. If your eyeshadows are not blended properly, you might end up looking very odd. While playing with neutral colours like brown and beige, it won’t be noticeable if it’s not very well blended. And don’t go crazy with the foundation! Use a tinted moisturizer instead for it looks way more natural. This will avoid you comments like: “She wears too much make-up; she is so fake, blab la...”

If you could leave the readers of NoS with a piece of wisdom, what would you want it to be?
I personally believe and I always say that make-up is a supplement not a requirement. You don’t have to rely on makeup and fashionable clothes for the society to accept you. All you need is the confidence and the power to believe in yourself. If you feel you are different from others but have to conform to stereotypes for people to accept you, you are so wrong. From my own past experience, I would advise you to be different and original; you never know-that difference might make you become the next star or the next most influencing fashion designer. Your originality is what makes you; don’t let anyone take it away.
