An ancient Irish proverb once said, “A good friend is like a four-leaf clover; hard to find and lucky to have.” Like good beauty products, good friends are truly hard to find. August 1st is the perfect time to celebrate those who truly care for you, bring joy to your life, and teach you significant lessons. It’s National Friendship Day. To honor this day and inspire wonderful new friendships, we are featuring a beauty blogger. Each month we will continue to recognize outstanding beauty bloggers, influencers, make up artists, and professionals in health and wellness. Send an email and social media links to email@example.com to get featured.

Q: What inspired you to (launch your) blog?
A: Helping other companies using my writing skills, I create blog content for beauty companies like ZATIK Naturals, Tote & Carry Bags, Seattle Facialist Patty Huang, Sports Co. Phi Ten USA and more!
Q: In honor of National Friendship Day what would you say are three qualities of being a good friend?
A: Being a good listener, patience, acceptance
Q: What is your favorite skin care line? Why?
A: ZATIK Naturals because it has no alcohol, uses healing and powerful Black Seed Oil in their formulas, as well as botanical, herbal extracts (Green tea! Rose! Wild cherry!) to heal instead of parabens or chemicals. My skin drinks it up like a daytime and nighttime health cocktail!
Q: What is one makeup product that you cannot live without? Why?
A: Liquid Bronzer from Tom Ford. I use it to highlight my skin, as an eyeshadow, on my lips- even to cover strands of gray hair!
