So you got your start as a blogger. What were you first blogging about?
 
I saw my blog as a lifestyle online magazine. I would share things that inspired me, like what was going on with the runways and how to get the look for less. I’m all about chasing style on a budget. Then I noticed people wanted to see me more involved, so I started doing tutorials, and thought about rebranding into a more personal lifestyle diary. Now it’s kind of everything, my personality.
 
It seems like you definitely commit to sharing your personality.
 
I feel like you have to, you know? Especially in our space, you can see through all the crap. Like, let’s just be real. You can see bloggers with those perfect, curated photos. I used to think that you had to do that, in that perfect outfit, at the perfect location. And truthfully, that’s not relatable. It’s an unattainable, unrealistic lifestyle. Like, we travel, and it ain’t that glamorous! Be real about it. So I just started sharing the crazy blooper side of things. My audience prefers me to be myself – the only person I know how to be is myself.

So you’re a Maybelline brand ambassador?
 
I’ve worked with Maybelline a couple times and they’re really fun and colorful. They approached me and said that they were looking for a couple girls for the digital ambassador side. We’re gonna be doing a bunch of events and shows throughout the year wearing different Maybelline looks – the first one was fashion week. It’s a really exciting partnership!
 
For the Maybelline looks, do you do your own makeup?
 
100%. I’m the kind of person that wants to do my own makeup. Because we’re content creators, people follow you online to see how you do your makeup; my job is to do my own everyday relatable makeup. Granted, there are times where I’ll call up my makeup artist friend. Like this past Sunday, she came over and we did the glittery lip. And that’s mostly just for the crazy, fun, bizarre, non-everyday things. It’s cool because then I get to pick up little tips and tricks and get inspiration from makeup artists.

Here’s a challenge. We know you can get ready for a date in 15 minutes – how would you do your hair and makeup if you snoozed before work and only had 5 minutes to get ready?
 
100% the top knot. I’m sorry, but I love it. If you have naturally straight hair, just throw it up and let some pieces of hair out. If you have Mufasa mane like me, like a lion, I would recommend doing a braid on the side and pulling it apart to make it kind of messy. Or maybe the half up half down top knot, Ariana Grande style, that would be cute too. As for the face — okay, so you can’t contour, honey. We ain’t got time for that. You just have to have a really amazing BB cream. Grab a tinted moisturizer with SPF so you’ll have that natural glow, a little mascara, and a just subtle lip, like a lip gloss.
 
What’s the next beauty look you’re thinking of trying?
 
I might end up looking like a greasy mess, but I really wanna try the glossy look, it’s really in right now. Glossy eyelids, glossy cheekbones, and a high shine glossy lip. I don’t know if I would do it all at the same time, but I want to try that out to see how it would look – that kind of wet look, but very dewy and young.
 
Do you have a fall look you’re excited to go for?
 
The vamp. The dark lip, maybe a darker eye. I haven’t done a really smoky eye in a long time, so I’m looking forward to that. Less is more, but still bold.

What are your upcoming projects?
 
Lots of fun and exciting projects are in the works – but I can’t really say what just yet. But I know my followers are going to appreciate it because it’s something everyone can enjoy. Stay tuned!!

  1. I love your honesty and authentic self! You really inspire me.
    It’s because of you and Steve that I want to start a blog 🙂 your lifestyle inspires mine. Lots of love xx

  2. Hey Sazan! I love how real you stay and relatable. I totally connect with what you said about how some bloggers take too-perfect pictures and always look pristine and that’s just not realistic. Thank you for the realness girl! <3

  3. Hey SAZ, I think you’re the one blogger/youtuber that stays true to your roots #texasgalhere. And I love that you don’t try to be fake haha. You are yourself which makes a lot of people atten to you. Dont forget that ????????
    Ps love your style

  4. Hi Sazan! 🙂
    I’m not sure if you will see this or not, but I figured I will try nonetheless. My name is Jessica MacCleary, I’m 21, and last month I saw you at Creator Day at YouTube Space. I didn’t know who you were. However, once you began speaking and sharing your story, I became very engaged. You seemed so dedicated, disciplined, and had so much insight on the digital world. I really liked what you had to say and the tips you shared. What you shared made me feel very motivated and inspired. When I went home later that day, I decided to check out your YouTube and your blog and I was so blown away. You make such amazing, high quality content and it all seems so effortless. You’re truly doing SUCH a great job.

    After looking at your content online, I regretted not having had talked to you after the panel. Even though we make different content, I felt that I really could have picked up some tips from you. Personally, I really struggle with motivation and time management. When you’re working for yourself, by yourself, it’s really difficult to maintain a strict work schedule. It’s easy to stray off task and become distracted because you’re at home. It’s self-discipline, which I guess I kind of lack sometimes haha. But something I noticed when you were speaking, you seem so disciplined in your content creation. Ultimately I suppose I’m asking, how do you maintain self-discipline? How do you stay motivated?

    In addition, I’ve been kind of lost on my channel lately (and I guess life too haha) and I’m just not sure what my next step is. I love to create. I love being creative and coming up with new ideas. My audience doesn’t respond well to different. I make something that I think is different and the video will get less than 1,000 views. Last week I posted a video that I knew would do well, that I knew people would love, that would take 15 minutes to film, but I knew that I was not pushing my creativity. I’ll do this every so often to test this theory, just to ensure it’s not something I’m making up. And that video, in a week, has over 10,000 views. That’s absolutely so awesome, but I don’t think I’m creatively growing. I’m not pushing my limits or making something amazing. It’s just kind of discouraging to know that when I do want to be creative or try something different, it doesn’t do well. Have you ever experienced something similar to this? If so, how did you deal with it?

    Okay, I’m going to close up this extremely long letter-esque comment. Thank you so much for your time, Sazan! I really hope you’re able to read this comment and if you do, I very much appreciate it. Thank you for inspiring me and I hope I am able to create as amazing of content as you do.
    Have a wonderful day!!

    I found you through YouTube and started to watch your channel. It was great to listen to your tips on being a fashion blogger, but also being very realistic. I look forward to what you will post next as your feed is very inspirational.
