In Her Closet – Episode 6 – Wonder Make Up Artist, Ara By Laide

I apologize for the late post but the cyber world decided to develop a mind of its own through the weekend. Remember you can catch up on all the previous episodes of this series right here on the blog.

A year ago, she would have been referred to as an upcoming make up artist. But she has since evolved and claimed her rightful place in the industry.

One would expect that to make her work which involves been on her feet for hours. she would throw on a pair of flip flops and get to work. But this is one MUA that pays attention to even herself and her total looks beyond satisfying her clients. Let’s get straight to the interview after the cut.

 JAY: Your job as an MUA takes you around a lot and has you standing for a long period of time. What are your most comfortable work shoes??
LAIDE: I stand through most times while working so i feel comfortable in sneakers or flossys or doll shoes if i could wear scrubs i wont mind lol.

CUSTOMIZED NEW BALANCE WORK SNEAKERS

JAY: What is your biggest pet peeve with shoes ( on you or other people)
LAIDE: My biggest pet peeve is having to stand so long on stilettos as cool and as sexy they are they are so annoying to wear for a long while. I also hate when i get to see people having shoe corns on their toes because of  constant wear of tight shoes. People spoiling or disrespecting shoes by removing the strap and stepping on it turning them to slippers.
MY THOUGHTS: Like why would you disrespect shoes… *cringe*
JAY: Flats or heels
LAIDE: Because of the nature of work i do ill go for flats any time any day.

JAY; Embarrassing shoe moments
LAIDE: So i was going for an event and then i noticed one stone on one pair of my steve madden shoes had come off and obviously it looked awkward. I felt so bad i had to yank out the other so they look the same.
JAY: Favorite highstreet brand
LAIDE: River island shoes are bae

RIVER ISLAND PUMPS

JAY: Shoes or bags
LAIDE:  Shoessss???
JAY: Favorite luxury footwear designer
LAIDE: Paul Andrew

I’ve been privileged to meet her a few times and i must say she’s one with an energetic spirit, even in her answers she shows passion. No matter what field of work you find yourself, there’s never a reason to go with boring shoes. Comfortable should never translate to boring. Until next episode…

Peace, Love And More Shoes

XOXO

JAY
