How were you inspired to begin your channel? Where did you start?
TN: I love makeup since I was 12 years old. I am a little more obsessed to makeup than usual people and that’s what inspired me to learn new techniques and try new makeup products. At one point, I felt like I can share my makeup knowledge and passion with my fellow makeup lover friends with this great medium- Youtube. And, that’s where the journey of my channel started.
I started at my home in Seattle, Washington with an old camera and the makeup collection I had at that time.
What inspires you and keeps you moving forward? Why are you passionate about it?
TN: My subscribers and their constant support! That’s what keeps me motivated and inspires me to move forward with new ideas everyday. I do this not because of the views or subscriber counts. Of course that’s motivate to some extent but the main reason I do it because I love playing with makeup, testing new products and I love even more to share it with people through youtube.
What’s your favorite aspect of the beauty & cosmetics industry?
TN: That it has no boundary. You can be as creative as you want. It has no limit. If you have the talent and creativity, this industry is the perfect place to show your creativity and let it grow.
What makes your brand unique from other beauty channels?
TN: I have a brown asian skin tone which is a bit hard to find in youtube even though we have millions of beauty channels on youtube. I do makeup tutorials and reviews on my channel focusing that group. That’s what makes my channel different than other. Also, I grew up in Bangladesh where the makeup community is still at the baby stage and very few beauty gurus are out there on youtube talking about makeup. My channel focuses on that Bangladeshi viewers as well. I do videos focusing on bengali special festivals and cultures as well. That’s what makes my channel unique and keeps it differentiated from thousand other beauty channels.
How do you organize/plan out your content?
TN: I always try to be up to date on new products in the market and do reviews on them. Also, I try to keep nice blend of tutorials, reviews and other makeup related topic on a planned schedule so that at any point of time there is not too many similar videos in a row. Since I also run a business of mine, sometimes managing time is a bit tricky but I sometimes film on my weekends as well to maintain the regular schedule on my channel.
What is your goal for your channel?
TN: To provide even better content to my subscribers and grow with them.
TN: Million subscribers and my own makeup brand. 🙂
Do you have any tips for others trying to break into the beauty industry?
TN: Come to this industry if you really enjoy doing it. If you are into this for money or subscribers or fame then it is more likely that you will get disappointed. Do it only if you feel good of doing it. Provide good content, be creative and the rest will come automatically.
What are your favorite beauty products or your go-to skincare regimen?
TN: Eyeshadows. I love eyeshadows specially the sparkly ones. My go to skincare regime doesn’t include many stuff- a good moisturizer, an eye cream and a sunscreen for day time. That’s it.
What products are currently in your purse?
TN: A powder to touch up, a travel brush, travel size eyeliner & mascara and a lip balm.
What’s your personal style?
TN: A bit of concealer, a subtle eyeshadow on the eyes with warm crease, mascara and a nude lipstick. I am good to go. 🙂
How does your personal style influence your branding?
TN: I appear on my channel as I am in my day to day life. I share what I like, I tell people what I don’t like. I believe remaining true to myself and giving people the honest opinion are the strength of my channel and that’s my personal style that inspires people to watch my channel.
What’s your favorite brand and why?
TN: Since I try so many different brands, it’s kind of hard to pick one but if I really had to pick one I would pick NARS. Because the way I see it is if there would be only one brand in the market, would I be happy with all of their products in each of the category. And, for NARS- my answer is YES!
