Maggie Roberts is a Vlogger, hair and makeup artist, and one dazzling mermaid. She was kind enough to answer some questions!
Tell us about yourself!
I just barely moved to LA, like a month ago after being in Mexico for almost four years. I am bilingual now. I am 22, and something I don't tell most people is that I was married for 3 years and that's why I lived in Mexico. At the moment I am finishing up a divorce.
What does a day in the life of Maggie look like?
I would say that everyday is kind of a new adventure for me. I am going through a somewhat difficult time in my life, trying to get slightly settled again in my country for the first time, because I have never really "adulted" here. I would love to try to give an example of a day in my life, but every day is so different. I always try to have a magical adventurous time wherever I go though. I am a huge believer in love, even though my last relationship didn't work out. I love fairytales, magic and unicorns. That is me. My life will never be a place where you can get too comfortable. I am always onto my next adventure and try to keep life interesting.
What was the first thing you did this morning?
Got up at 7 am and headed off to Disneyland with my sister ✨
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to draw, paint, dance, and sing. I love being with fun people, and I love nature, travel, and unplanned adventures.
What makes you laugh?
Cat videos and autocorrect 😹😅
Who do you have the best time with?
I have a number of amazing friends and an amazing family, and I love them all, but at this moment choosing one person that I would love to be with right now is Matías Tripi.
We met in Playa del Carmen. He is from Argentina. He is crazy, and we are both Instagrammers that dedicate our lives to art. We have so much in common, and I think that is why it is so great to be around him. Definitely always inspires me to continue to work hard and grow in my endeavors.
Do you have a pet?
I had two kitties, but I had to leave them with my ex in Mexico. 😿
What do you love about them?
My cat Gucci was always the sweetest. He would always wait by the door for me to come home and give me kisses. Renee would also be super cute and roll up in a ball next to me. She was very talkative, and would have full-on conversations with me. Lol. 😻💬
What are three tools in your makeup kit that you can never be without?
Spoon 🥄 , mascara 👀, chapstick 👄.
Who are some people that have inspired you?
Kristen Leanne and her hubby Ryan Morgan. They are ultimate #couplegoals and I love how they are and their accomplishments. I would love to someday be like them. And have a successful, happy, and adventurous life like they do!
What do you love most about makeup?
I love the use of color. I love that we are in a time where so many colors are available where I can literally create a piece of art on my face.

How long have you been doing hair and makeup?
I am the third oldest of 10 children, and I would cut all my siblings hair since I was 13 years old. I first started doing makeup when I was 7. My sister had a marykay party once with my aunt who sold marykay at the time, and I never stopped doing makeup since. I started with pinks and blues, when I was 12 I used more eyeliners and by 14 I was doing rainbow makeup. I also did face paint 🎨 and stage makeup 🎭 from ages 13-18.
I started dying my hair just barely a year and a half ago, and couldn't stop. I just fell in love with all the colors!
When did you realize that you wanted to be a hair/makeup artist?
A year and a half ago I realized I could do it, as a profession, but I have always had a passion for color and makeup. Although I didn't know I would be good at doing hair. That was just a surprise that I loved to do it so much. Especially with colors.
How often do you like to change your hair color?
Every month. 🌈🦄

What's your favorite hair color combo?
I really loved my icy ️❄️ ombré, but the more rainbow 🌈, honestly, the better.
What do you love about Arctic Fox?
I love how it fades so beautifully. It doesn't stain your hair forever and you can literally try any new combination because it is non damaging, and every color fades, even green! I love the smell of course, but also the intensity and pigment of the colors, I love that I can create my own custom colors. 💁🏻
What's the number 1 thing on your bucket list?
Visit all 7 continents. 🌏
What are you looking to accomplish by the end of this year?
I would like to at least double my following on IG and YouTube. I want to be able to share my world of color with the rest of the the world. I would like to improve my recording, editing, and consistency. I would love to learn to take more risks by being more creative as well.
