I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Markie J to learn five random facts about himself, and who's a dream client he'd love to work with. Check out my interview with Markie J below:
Loryn: What have you've learned about yourself during this pandemic?
Markie J: During the pandemic I learned that I am extremely resilient and that nothing can stop me from reaching my goals. With the support of my clients I was able to utilize the pandemic to my advantage, still providing the glam experience every woman dreams of while still practicing Covid guidelines. I became very innovative with creating beauty content and keeping a steady stream of income. Overall, this pandemic showed me how much of a “go getter” I am!
Loryn: Who is a dream client you'd like to work with?
Markie J: My ideal client would be Saweetie. She has such an Exotic look and gorgeous features. That is a client I would categorize as a super glam girl!
Loryn: What beauty product do you recommend ladies invest in?
Markie J: I would recommend ladies investing in a face serum. Face serums penetrate deeper into the skin and get in between barriers that your regular moisturizer can not reach. Hydration serums & Hyaluronic acid are just two key ingredients I would tell a woman to look for in a serum. Even with oily skin, some serums will keep you hydrated without giving you a Dewy finish. Neutrogena carries some amazing serums for the face.
Loryn: If you could change one thing about the beauty industry what would it be?
Markie J: In luxury brands, I would allocate for it to be more diversified. There are so many women of color, ethnic backgrounds, undertones, and so forth that there should be ranges of color that compliment each woman's shade. There are so many markets out there that the beauty industry is not targeting, which I would consider a loss on both ends because every woman deserves to feel beautiful.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
Markie J: One thing about Markie J. people would be surprised to know is, I am very easy-going. I tend to enjoy the simpler things in life. I am super relatable and understanding in a sense. Once you are around me, you would completely understand. I pride myself on remaining true to who I am and enjoy what I do.
