Not only do I love these products by @hankandhenry_ @hotmakeup.usa, but I absolutely admire & adore Henry himself. I'll list the products first, then tell you why he inspires me. •• Natural Perfection Foundation Stick shade NP55, Matte Bronzer MB10 & MB01, & Hot Candy 'Morocco' Eyeshadow •• Henry was one of the only brands to ever reach out to me & I was floored. I tagged him in my work & he liked one of my photos, & I was so ecstatic that I posted about it. After that, he told me to send him my address so he could send me goodies, & I remember thinking 'wow, I have no where near a 10K followers. I can't believe he wants to send me his products!' Henry is such a beautiful soul & I am truly inspired by him because he likes to build others up. We live in a society where people want to tear others down & hate seeing others succeed. Something needs to change & Henry contributes to that positive change forward. I was just watching @makeupbygriselda IG live video from the Ipsy OS greater space, which is where Henry was speaking & he was discussing how he helps brands reach out to other influencers by talking about them. I can honestly say that he does that because @measurabledifference reached out to be because Henry told them about me. They actually told me that in an email, & once again, I was shocked. I'll forever appreciate Henry, not just because I've received free makeup by him, but because he saw something in me & believed in me.
I'm going to talk about this more in my blog post answering all your questions, but the most frequent question I get asked is, "how do you receive free makeup & you don't have 10K+ followers?" The only answer I have to that is I am passionate about makeup & love doing it, & brands notice whether it is word of mouth or endless amounts hashtags. Keep grinding. You may not realize this, but I've had this account for THREE (3) YEARS & I am no where near my goal.
With all that being said, thank you so much Henry. It's people like you who lift my spirits when I am down. Thanks for your words & love.
