We got a chance to chat with fashionista and Instagram guru, Lisa , of @lalalisaaaa. From her humble beginnings to her top 5 beauty picks, get to know the girl behind the #OOTD!
How did you get started on Instagram?
I started back in 2011 when Instagram just got popular. I've always loved dressing up! I would just take mirrored photos of my outfits for fun & my girlfriends would like/comment on them. I then used more hashtags & learned that there was an IG fashion community of girls who did the same .. Aka "Fashionistas." I started networking with these girls from all over the world who had the same interest as I did in creating outfits. It wasn't until 2012 .. Forever 21 reposted one of my outfits & so did Ashley Tisdale .. I received a flood of followers that week! It was awesome :) Definitely the highlight of my Insta-career! haha! That's when all the sponsorships definitely started rolling in. I'd get several emails a day from different companies wanting to collaborate.
Where do you find inspiration for your style?
Definitely stores like Forever 21, Pacsun, Brandy Melville & sometimes even celebrities & other Instagram fashionistas I follow.
What are your tips for putting together the perfect fall/winter outfit?
A fall/winter outfit isn't complete without sweaters, over the knee socks & boots! My favorite fall color palette is maroon, olive, brown & mustard.
What are 5 makeup products you can’t live without?
- Eyeliner for my winged cat eye look
- Jordana Lip Liner in Natural Silk
- LA Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick in Snuggle
- Eyebrow powder
Any beauty secrets?
Not sure if it's a secret.. But I love overdrawing my lips for a more pouty look & also lightly brushing a shimmery highlight from under my eyes & moving outwards to where my cheekbones are. It definitely gives me a nice natural glow.
What emoji best represents you?
Haha! Would have to be..
