With Flash & Flair: TheBryanAffect
We will admit it, from the moment we came across @thebryanaffect on Instagram, we were entranced. Sure, the focus is often on fashion, but there is plenty of skincare talk too. And we are noted fanatics about skincare, okay?
We were lucky enough to get the chance to chat with Bryan and took it in a heartbeat.
How do you define "style"?
I define style by how you interpret trends to work in your daily life. You go by what you like and not what you see in the magazines. You make it your own.
When did you first decide to start chronicling your adventures online?
I started my Instagram account (formerly called "TheBGChronicles", now called "TheBryanAffect") two years ago. I wanted to create an outlet to express myself with fashion, skincare and lifestyle that I had complete creative control of. I wanted it to be fun, easy-to-follow and to provide something for everyone.
You have insanely enviable skin (one of the perks of being a skincare junkie, we suppose). What is the number one skincare secret you have discovered so far?
Aww! Thank you for the compliment. The number one skincare secret I have discovered would be to moisturize. It is what keeps your skin glowing and hydrated. I know everyone says that, but truthfully it makes a huge difference (also drink lots of water!).
Staying consistent with your skincare routine is key too. Everyone wants nice skin, but you do have to put work into it and keep it up. You can have an easy skincare routine that takes a few minutes.
Okay, we promise that we will stop pestering you about skincare matters after this! Are there any discontinued products that you still pine over?
It keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day with herbs and rosewater. I'm totally obsessed with it. It's seriously the best thing ever! It has a lot of the beauty blogs buzzing about it. I would suggest everyone to try it out.
How would you describe yourself in five words?
I would describe myself as intelligent, kindhearted, comforting, outgoing and fun.
Anything else you'd like to add?
I am so grateful to have been interviewed! Also, feel free to follow me on Instagram!
