Shine On: Showstopper Sharifa Easmin-Kabir
Sharifa Easmin-Kabir is no stranger to coming up with captivating makeup looks. In fact, this makeup lover (who actually makes it a point to clarify that she is not a makeup artist in her Instagram bio) frequently broadcasts her thoughts on an array of beauty topics to an ever-growing sea of fans on her YouTube channel.
Seeing as Sharifa possesses many, many commendable qualities that we admire —she works hard, she's hilarious, she thinks outside of the box, etc.—we wanted to set up a time with her for a short rendezvous. So we did.
What prompted you to start making YouTube videos?
I was a stay-at-home mom and I really wanted to do something I had a passion for but still be able to stay home with my son.
You always come up with such fun topics and looks! Where do you source your cosmetic inspiration from?
My inspiration comes from everywhere: follower requests, looks on Instagram, magazines, even a top can give me inspiration!
How would you describe your day-to-day makeup “aesthetic”?
I actually don't wear makeup day-to-day! If I ever do to go out and run errands it's just mascara, a little blush and a tinted balm.
Which three beauty products have your heart forever and always?
What’s next for you?
I have no idea! And that's really exciting; I have no idea what's in store for me.
