    Magical space princess @cloeeshi | #FoxFamily

    Cloe is all about glitter and rainbows, which is probably why we adore her. Read on and get to know this sparkly beaut!

    Tell us about yourself!
    I'm originally from Vietnam. I came to the US 2 years ago to get my bachelor's degree in Business. I have 2 birthday (It's a long story) one real birthday on December 24th and one on birth certificate January 2nd ;) I'm a dog lover.

     What does your typical day-to-day look like? 
    Lay on the bed and do nothing.

    Just kidding! I'm a boring person. I go to school and work in the morning. Come back home to do film makeup tutorial and edit for the rest of the day. I always talk to friends and use Instagram in my spare time (by spare time I mean whole day 🤣 ) The spotlight of the day must be at night when I can meet and talk to my boyfriend.

     What are three things you absolutely NEED to get you through the day? 
    Snack - Boyfriend - Random doggie videos on the internet

    How long does your everyday beauty routine take? 
    My everyday routine is totally different from what I post online. It usually takes up about 10 minutes only. Skincare prep, eyebrows, mascara and sunscreen. That's all.

    What is your go-to OOTD?
    I realized I started to wear all pink recently. Usually pink sweatpants, white crop top, pink cardigan and my nike shoes! Yup I'm a sweatpants type of girl.

    When did you first dye your hair? What color did you choose? 
    Oooh I love this question! I think I started to dye my hair when I was 17, now I'm 22. First color was just hazel brown.

    Then I started to do ombré with every color like red, pink, purple, blue, green. I'm just really in love with colored hair and can't go back to my black hair anymore :)
    What is your all-time favorite hair color combo?
    There are a lot! But I think my all time favorite hair combo is RAINBOW 🌈 And that's what I'm going to do in the next few week!!!! So watch out for me Arctic Fox * wink wink *

    What is your inner spirit animal? Describe!

    We know you love Disneyland! What is your favorite ride and why? 
    My favorite ride must be Alice in the wonderland! I don't know why, it's just trippy and cute haha

    Do you have a hidden talent?
    I don't think so. Does eating lots of sweets non stop consider a talent? 🤔 if so I'm a macaron champion Also recently discovered that I can cook too!

    What is your biggest pet peeve?
    Hrmmmmm I think what bugs me the most is when people are late! Time is gold people time is gold.

    If you had only one more day to live, what would you do?
    If I only have 1 more day to live? Probably will fly back to my Vietnam to be with family and my baby boy ( my dog 🐶)

    Then I'll eat all the food I've never tried before and the last hour of my life I'll do makeup so I'll die pretty 🤣

    Chit Chat with Rainbow Mermaid @maggietorials | #FoxFamily

    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.

    We had fun getting bored with @mainlyboredom | #FoxFamily

    Ariane Valentine might be @mainlyboredom on Ig. But she's mainly amazing to us. Read below to find out why!

    Hi Ariane! Tell us about yourself!
    I’m 23, I was homeschooled by my very Dominican mother, I was raised in Switzerland and still live here, I have BPD (borderline personality disorder) and I’m some kind of weird social media ghoul.

    What does a typical day look like to you?
    No day is the same but definitely A LOT of food. So much food!

    What's your favorite day of the week?
    I like Saturdays 'cause I have the most time to work on stuff I love without being interrupted. 

    What's your guilty pleasure?
    I really don’t feel guilty about anything I enjoy! 

    What emoji best describes you?
    That awkward smiley face one  😬

    Who are you currently stalking on Instagram?
    Bex (@bexlecter), Dre (@dreronayne) and Jolien (@crucifucked) those three are the ones I really search for, all amazing artists that I really respect.

    What's the third thing you did this morning?
    Text my mom for sure, I can’t remember but it’s what I do after I check Twitter and Instagram!

    Do you collect anything?
    Mistakes mostly haha I’m not a huge collector though, I hate clutter so much that I think that gets in the way of collecting things.

    What makes you laugh?
    Everything, I am almost always laughing and if I’m not generally I’m hardcore grumping.

    What do you love doing in your spare time?
    I love video games, I spend a crazy amount of time just lurking Youtube, I love writing stories, I love creating special effects makeup, I’m really into horror movies and I freaking love cop/CSI type shows.

    How would you describe your aesthetic?
    I think a lot of it is comic books and mangas. They were my whole world in my formative years and I just never grew out of wanting to be one of those characters.

    What's currently on your playlist?
    The past few days for me have been all about Hole and It’s My Generations version of A Classic.

    Last album you listened to all the way through?
    Stadium Arcadium by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    What is a dream job for you?
    My mother used to read me Edgar Allan Poe and I remember even at seven knowing I wanted to create stories. If I do that through books or makeup or whatever I’ll be happy.

    What do you love most about makeup?
    The fact that with these few items you can completely transform someone.

    What are a couple of your inspirations for your makeup looks?
    Again I’m all about the comic books and I like to add something of classic glam. I also really love the whole look of silver screen stars back in the 1920’s.

    I know you just changed your hair color but any cool ideas for the next color?
    I feel that I did all the cool tones last year, and this year I want the yellows, the oranges, the reds. Even coral but I never know exactly what I’m gonna do in advance and that’s why I have nearly every Arctic Fox color in stock!

    What do you love about Arctic Fox?
    Absolutely everything. They’re the most vibrant, hydrating, long lasting, they smell amazing and my favorite part which comes to play a lot in the hair colors I’ve had- THEY MIX SO BEAUTIFULLY TOGETHER! 

    What's the #1 thing on your bucket list?
    I don’t have a bucket list, if I want to do something I do it right away. I was raised very much aware that I was alive for a limited time so I had to make it count. 

    What's next for you? Any cool plans for 2017?
    I want to be A LOT more creative this year with special effects and even regular makeup. For Youtube I want to keep making fun lighthearted content but I also want to make videos talking about my mental health and creating a dialogue.

    It’d also be cool to have more behind the scenes videos so people can see how hard I work for the images that I post and also to keep me accountable and push me to be more creative.

    What's one long term goal you're so looking forward to accomplishing?

    All I can hope for is to have progressed in the various art forms I love. Probably my goal is to be able to look back at my body of work and be really proud rather than cringe haha

    Q&A with Rachael Castro @j0uzai | #FoxFamily

    Rachael was kind enough to answer some questions for us.

    Tell us about yourself!
    I never know how to answer this! Well, my name is Rachael, I'm 21 and I live in California. I go by jouzai or j0uzai on my social media, a name I took from a song in an anime. I'm studying neuroscience in college and I work as a supplementary instructor for chemistry and as a chemistry tutor for my college.

    I also love animals and have a sweet precious radiant doggie named Angel who is 14 years old. Although she's lost most of her hearing and developed Cushing's disease, she's in pretty good shape for her age. A lot of people are shocked when I tell them how old she is! She's a little mutt we scored from the shelter who I'd sell my soul for. She's played a big role in shaping my love for animals, going vegetarian and cruelty-free. Everyone in my family loves her, she's even printed on our credit cards. I think she has a lot to do with why my twin sister wants to be a vet tech and work with animals :) 

    What does a day in the life of Rachael look like?
    This is actually quite hilarious to me haha. Many people assume I'm someone who puts time into their appearance and fashion or that I'm somewhat put together daily. Most of my friends find my Instagram hilarious. The truth is I'm very lazy, I hate getting ready or getting dressed and I actually don't care at all about what I wear and my makeup is absolutely awful. I tend to wear all baggy clothing but not in the cute way. My friend once tried to take a picture of me because my outfit was so bad (baggy striped capris with knee high striped socks, clogs, a giant lamb of god shirt and my dads large zip up).

    My makeup tends to be just as bad, 9/10 I put it on in the car. I only put foundation under my eyes and just powder that's a little too tan over the rest. I attempt mascara and eyebrows (mine are blonde) and that's about it. The whole process and clothing takes about 10 minutes. I have class, work and/or study time from 8-4 or 8-6 depending on the day. Then I go home, do some HW or maybe watch Netflix and then pass out. Not very eventful I know haha. Weekends I study, and set aside one day to take a photo for Instagram haha. I do really enjoy the looks I do on Instagram and that IS my fashion choice, I just don't want to do that everyday- if you left at 7am you probably wouldn't want to either haha. So despite having lots of cute clothing I dress like a slob haha. A lot of my friends actually weren't aware I owned cute clothing at all. So don't be surprised when you see me in person looking... a lot different hahah.


    Do you have any pet peeves?
    I have too many pet peeves haha! Loud chewing is probably the worst one though. I also can't stand when people don't smooth out foods like ice cream, butter etc. But I think that's part of my OCD (I'm diagnosed and medicated currently).

    Favorite way to spend your down time?
    Reading manga! But usually I don't have down time haha.

    Whats your favorite manga at the moment and why?
    My favorite manga of all time is Deadman Wonderland! The anime is not as good and isn't finished so I recommend reading the manga instead. It's got amazing character development which is so important for me. There are a lot of character twists that totally mess with your head. Some people you think are level headed or fine but 5 chapters later you're like "OH SHIT". It's basically about some people kept in a prison who can manipulate their blood. They've all gone through extensive trauma that has left most of them with psychosis and/or other issues. I guess a fair warning is that there's gore! It's definitely a dark manga, but there is still some light hearted moments. Shiro is kind of the center of a lot of it, and figuring out who she is exactly. It's very deep although only 50 chapters. Granta can be a little whining (a type of character I tend to dislike) but he gets better and it's a little understandable considering what happened to him (lol). The other characters make it 100x worth while. I highly recommend it if you're not bothered by gore.

    What's your favorite dessert?
    I LOVE eclairs. I would eat them every meal of the day if no one stopped me. They're too good. 

    Whats your least favorite food?
    The food I can't stand is cilantro. Tomatoes not in marinara are a close second though. I can still force myself to eat either but cilantro I will notice even if it's just a pinch.


    What's your spirit animal?
    My spirit animal is probably the sloth. Or some animal that is extremely slow and lazy haha. Although I wish I could say it was something cool like a tiger. Sadly, I'm just not that cool.

    Describe yourself in 5 words.
    Lazy, weird, hardworking, creepy, badatdescribingmyselfin5words? I think I get along okay though! I do well in school :D

    What music do you listen to at the moment?
    I listen to just about anything, although I don't really like country. The music that gives me the most joy is rock and some metal. I'm kind of in love with Rammstein and have been for years.


    Do you collect anything?
    You're going to think I'm so weird, but I collect soap. Specifically Bee & flower soap. I don't know why exactly, it smells amazing to me. My identical twin does the exact same thing. We both sleep with them next to our bed so we can smell it. I know it's really weird, there was a time I had 10 of them there. We've been doing it ever since we were kids, apparently I used to take one to school with me in 5th grade.

    On a more normal note I collect Deadpool comics? Haha. And some figures or art for Deadpool or anime/manga that I enjoy.

    Any hidden talents?
    Not that I know of or that I haven't already lost! I used to play the violin when I was younger. I've landed some top scores in games?

    I was second in the world at Poke A Mole (an app) haha. And I did pretty well on Neopets too. Which I guess makes me pretty important. That's a joke.


    How would you describe your aesthetic?
    I'm not sure, it tends to be a cross between metal head and gothic? I don't consider myself either because of the elitists that tend to come with labels like that. I just like darker styles :)

    You can only wear one outfit for the rest of 2017. What is it?
    Hmmm... I would go with my oversized pretty reckless shirt w/ cut off sleeves, my black high waisted shorts, a set of black thigh highs and my knee high Doc Martens. If I didn't have to walk around as much I'd pick my thigh high heels from Dollskill. But if I had to be in a lab setting where pants were required I'd have to go with my oversized Guns N' Roses shirt with black skinny jeans and knee high Doc Martens.

     What kind of things really make you laugh?

    Comedy manga rarely fails to make me laugh, especially ones that have delinquents. Somehow those are always my favorites, like Beelzebub and Oresama Teacher.

    I'm also a big fan of Mr. Bean. The diving board scene makes me laugh so hard I cry every time (seriously, look it up). When I was a kid my grandfather only had 2 VHS tapes without sound and they were Mr Bean and "How to Take Care of Cats". I watched that tape dozens of times and it never got old :)

    Preference: creepy or cute?
    Hmm... on myself I prefer creepy, but it's close to a tie in general. I admire cutesy people and love the style but there's a certain joy and excitement I get when I see something creepy. Somehow it makes me really happy - not in a serial killer kind of way haha. I just really appreciate it. Sometimes I find it fun to scare people with my looks too.


    What do you love about Arctic Fox?
    Um, everything? Haha. The smell has to be the biggest winner. It's so refreshing to have a dye that smells like candy. I don't have to turn the fan on and die when I inhale like with other dyes hahah. The color always turns out the way I'd like it to and they mix beautifully. It's the best experience I've had with any dye honestly. I recommend it to people even outside of Instagram. I also love that Arctic Fox donates to help animals 🐰 They are also cruelty free and vegan! Which is awesome. A dye that works great, smells great, and doesn't harm any animals should be anyone's ideal. It's hard to find cruelty free products that work amazing as well.

    What's a secret about you that we don't know?
    Well, the soap thing kinda was a secret haha. I don't really have secrets, there are 2 things I only tell a few people about but I still tell some :) the soap secret is enough for today LOL.

    What's a hair color you haven't done that you'd like to do?!

    Hmmmm... I think maybe maroon/burgundy. I think it's beautiful but I won't be able to return to teal so easily haha.

    What's your hair maintenance process?

    I'm pretty terrible with hair upkeep honestly! I don't have a lot of free time with work and school so I usually have at least an inch of roots before dying it again >.> I do wash the color into my hair when I shower though! I mix it with my conditioner and wash my hair with that. I also use Olaplex which is a life saver :)

    How do you bleach your hair?

    I use 20-30 vol developer with bleach on my roots but don't re bleach the rest of my hair. I also mix Olaplex in and it works well! I use a brush just along the root area, then leave it for ~30min and wash it out. Usually it's light enough to dye after that!


    What are you looking forward to in 2017?
    I'm looking forward to transferring colleges to study neuroscience!

Oh and Pac man inside my lip!

    Where would you love to travel to?
    I've always wanted to visit Tokyo and Rome.


    Tell us something weird about yourself...

    Everything about me is pretty weird...I'm left handed and terrified of needles, not the tattoo kind, the doctor kind.

    Taking some art and metalsmithing classes at the moment.. also a biology class which is quite interesting to me... just trying to figure this life thing out so we'll see where it takes me! 

    Your Instagram is full of super colorful and fun makeup looks- what do you love most about makeup?

    I love makeup for two reasons. First, I think it's a super awesome way to give people extra confidence and express themselves.

    Second, I love creating art on faces. I feel like it's such a great canvas for colors and glitters and whatnot.


    Who are some makeup artists (or other people) that have inspired you?

    Gwen Stefani has always been such an inspiration to me. She is such a sweet person, and she is so talented and creative. I love her style, her music, her makeup. Everything about her, haha

    Mascara, concealer, and chapstick.

    What do you love about Arctic Fox?

    I love how the colors are so vibrant and long lasting. I think it is amazing that they are so involved in saving animals and it smells yummy.


    What's one hair color trend you'd love to see come back?

    Everything from the 60's.. like Hairspray.

    What do you do to take care of your hair?

    I don't wash it everyday, mostly to make my colors last longer and to let the natural oils nourish my hair.. I also use hair masks every one in a while.


     What's on your agenda for this year?

    Well I'm finally a Disneyland pass holder, so lots of Disney!!

     What's the one thing you are looking to accomplish in the next few years?

    Hmm..I really want to work hard towards a career. Just gotta figure out what that is first.
