'Most of my style inspiration comes from the ‘70s and the ‘80s. There’s this Instagram account called ‘70s Babes that I love to reference and repost on my own account. All of my jeans are high waisted because I think they make me look like Farrah Fawcett—I’ll try to feather my hair, too. But I also love the big curls of the ‘80s. My mom was an aerobics teacher back then and she permed her hair and wore these huge earrings and high-cut thong leotards. She had the best style.
I don’t wear a ton of makeup when I’m not working, but beautiful eyebrows are really important. You can have nothing on as long as your eyebrow shape is good. But I do love makeup and Youtube tutorials and all that. If I go to a festival or something, I really go for it and create a really dramatic eye. Maxfactor mascara is the best for that. I’ll apply it really thick so it looks like I’m wearing false eyelashes. I swear by that stuff.”
