Beauty enthusiasts came out to chop it up, shop pigments and be inspired by the color of Magnolia Makeup!
(Tia,me and Nala)
While there, I shopped and was able to chat it up with Tia, one of the Magnolia Makeup Sisters. You may be familiar with her as she’s the face of Magnolia Makeup on Youtube.
On the vision for Magnolia Makeup:
Tia says she wants Magnolia Makeup to show women in Louisiana that makeup isn’t just a teeny bopper activity, but an intelligent art and form of expression.
On what's new with Magnolia Makeup product:
A true deep gray and lilac lip colors are new for Spring. So new, they were unnamed! I got to peek at them and test them out. I didn't get pictures.... well
On what inspires her:
Surprisingly, she said she had never been asked that! With her varied and creative background (jewelry making and culinary arts to name a few), she draws inspiration from everywhere… food, places, memories and more!
My interest in the Bounce culture of New Orleans led me to ask Tia about Messy Mya (if she knew him) and a Bounce inspired collection:
She went to school with Messy Mya! The sisters actually have a bounce song that they play at events! I’m unclear if there will be a Bounce collection brewing any time soon, but I hope I garnered enough buzz for her to think about one!
My haul: (clockwise, starting at top left: Twinkle, Whimsical, Calliope and Shero)
Why oh why didn't I get the exclusive lippies???
