[MUSIC] Hi guys, my name's Andrea and I'm the assistant beauty editor at Essence magazine. I'm so excited that you're here with me today at my favorite salon, Devachan, in New York City. I'm gonna get my hair done by my favorite stylist, Brian. So why don't you come along and get to know me better. [MUSIC] So I feel most beautiful when I wake up in the morning. I really like to be naturally who I am. I don't wear a lot of makeup. I don't really like to get super dolled up. I just like to be me and stay young and fresh looking. Being a Beauty Editor at Essence is such a blessing. It's really awesome to hear readers tell us that this article or this story really helped me change my lifestyle or helped me to feel prettier. I think that is The icing on the cake for this job. And this huge social media boom where people are taking their beauty and making it a certain way, to get more followers and likes, has really changed the way that I see beauty. Now, my challenge for all women out there is to really use makeup to enhance your beauty instead of redefining your beauty. Make features pop instead of Changing them, or contouring them to be a different shape or size. Just truly accept who you are and you will feel the most beautiful that you ever have.
