Episode 3: Confidence is KEY with Influencer & Makeup Artist CKeyBeauty #BeyondtheBranding

This week’s interview is super special to me.

Wanna know why?

Because it was the first real conversation that I had had in a VERY long time in which the focus of the conversation centered around positivity, confidence, and HOPE. Crystal has been a longtime friend, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her back when her channel was just taking off…and trust me, she works her BUTT off to make sure that the content she puts out in the world is nothing but the best!!!

Crystal is a ray of sunshine in the world, she empowers women to embrace their best selves in a way that you don’t often see beauty gurus preach and I think that’s what really makes her stand out from the crowd.

We chatted about the importance of preaching positivity and how to deal with the “haters” without stooping to their level. Her story is so cool, and I can’t wait for you guys to listen to it!!

If you enjoyed this episode PLEASE go and give me a 5 star review over on iTunes…and you can even leave me a snazzy little review! That’ll help others be able to find and enjoy this podcast too!!!

(2:00) Intros! Hi Crystal!!

(5:00) So!! How did you get started to posting to YouTube and social?

(10:00) Tech?? How did you handle buying equipment and learning how to edit your content??


(14:00) What are your thoughts on the community and the content you put out there? How do you keep yourself so positive in a community that is known to be a little catty?

(19:00) I heard you teach makeup classes!!! How did you get into branching out like that?

(25:00) Working with brands can be tricky to navigate…how did you start? Do you credit your success in landing sponsorships to anything in particular?

(43:00) Your videos are so high-energy, how do you beat creative burnout? Do you ever get tired of pushing out content consistently?
