Her name probably sounds unfamiliar to you, but Meidiana is actually a freelance model whose enthusiasm revolves around beauty –especially makeup. Being a model isn’t as easy as it may seem. But Meidi – her nickname, persevered step by step. Let’s take a quick look at how she started it all.
Tell us about your involvement in modeling.
“I learned modeling by myself. I started it off when I was in school – around 7 years ago. At that time, there were many people who uploaded their photos in Facebook. Then I got interested to do the same thing. At first I paid people to take photos of me, but as time goes by, they started to ask me to be their (photography communities) model test. And now I’m a freelance model.”
Second best thing that caught your millennial eyes, apart from modeling?
“I love makeup. I don’t really understand how fashion works, that’s why I relate more to beauty and makeup. Again, I didn’t take any makeup class or something, I purely self-taught from YouTube. I learned makeup because I had to do my makeup alone before photoshoot. But then it became a hobby that I really love.”
Wearing makeup almost everyday, do you have any beauty ritual?
“Don’t have any special skin treatment actually, I only wash my face evey night beforeI go to sleep.”
Makeup enthusiasts usually vlog and once their name is big, they’d launch their own beauty line. Plans to do so?
“I guess they’re pretty cool because they can live up their passion into something that they’re really passionate about. Right now, my main focus is still in modeling, I still have a lot to learn about makeup. Maybe I’m gonna make a YouTube channel for makeup tutorials, and chances are met, I would like to have my own makeup line.”
Signature makeup look?
“I like a natural makeup with a dewy touch for a glowy look. I often use highlight to help my cheekbones look on fleek.”
Any special hair treatment?
“As someone who often dyed her hair, I often do a hair mask and put on hair vitamin after I wash my hair.”
What other color of hair would you like to explore?
“I really want to color my hair to a grey-ish one!”
