Tell us about yourself!
I'm a 21-year-old Fine Arts student. I love everything related to creating- I couldn't imagine myself without art or creativity. And of course traveling always as much as I can. Wherever it is, exploring new places makes us evolve so much!
What’s something not many people know about you? Not necessarily a secret, but something that just doesn’t come up in conversation often?
People when they first meet me don't really think I'm a bit of a nerd..haha I'm a HUGE fan of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit!
What is your favorite hair color combo?
I've been loving this peachy vibe for the last year, Virgin Pink and Sunset Orange are suuuch a beautiful combination! Although I want to try a washout blue in the future!
What is your top beauty secret/hack?
My fav beauty secret would have to be my fake freckles. I’ve always wanted to have them when I was a kid! So when I discovered makeup I was like "This is amazing... I can have freckles now!" haha
How did it feel to win the NYX Spain Face Awards?!?
Winning the Face Awards in Spain was pretty crazy... I feel like that made me so much more confident in myself and my work, and the fact people value your work is so rewarding! Definitely a big episode in my life.
How long does it typically take you to film/edit a YouTube Video?
I think I might be the laziest Youtuber of all times... haha, I take soo much time when editing something, I want it to be as best as I can, and I always keep changing things, adding others... usually about a few days, but some big ones weeks!
When did you first start painting? What is your favorite original piece and why?When people ask "when did you start painting/ drawing?" I always answer "I never stopped!" Because we are told when we're kids we have to be certain things, we tend to put aside the creative part. So to me painting has always been with me, I just perfected it at university! :)
What is the story behind your first tattoo?
My first tattoo is a Harry Potter one... I'm a potterhead, what can I say! haha I wanted something that "defined" the past 7 years of my life before uni, so Potter was perfect for that :)
What is your favorite travel destination?
I'm not sure If I can choose one travel destination...what’s important is who you go with! But I'd say Costa Rica was a magical place to me.
Do you have a hidden talent? Describe!
A hidden talent... I usually bite my toenails haha, but I wouldn't describe that as a talent! :P
What's your favorite thing to do at the end of the day?
I love skyping with my boyfriend and watch some of my favorite movies like "Her", "Lost in Translation" or "Lolita"
