Yanique Lambert (aka Chunchi) is a self-taught freelance makeup artist who has been certified by Revlon Cosmetics. She is also a blogger, social media manager and owner of Makeup Tuck Shop – an online platform that gives out makeup advice via Facebook and Twitter, and which will be distributing makeup accessories within the next few weeks.
Taking time away from feeding advice to her avid fans and followers, Yanique dishes her beauty dos and donts with us at SPICE and talks sunset-inspired eyeshadow and ombre red lips…
SPICE: What does beauty mean to you?
Yanique: Beauty to me means an inner radiance. They say looking good is feeling good and that’s so true – once you feel confident and exude confidence, you’re beautiful.
What is your day-to-day beauty routine?
I wash my face with a cleanser; Irie Rock Tea Tree Cleanser is a local Jamaican brand, very gentle and healthy. Then I use Maybelline’s BB cream and set it with my Black Opal Finishing Powder. I fill in my brows, add a lip balm or gloss and I’m out!
Do you have a signature look?
Yes, I do a great sunset inspired eyeshadow look that I’m very proud of.
What would be your must-have beauty product?
An eyebrow pencil. I also use it to line my lips for a sexy ombre red lip!
If we were to open your makeup bag, what other brands and products would we find?
MAC, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Black Opal, NYX and Elf.
What are your beauty dos and don’ts?
Do moisturize (face and lips), remove all your makeup before bed and exfoliate. Don’t experiment with new products on an important night, forget to clean your brushes or buy foundation without giving it a test run first.
Whose makeup do you always admire?
A Jamaican Youtuber ‘Thefancyfaced’. Her makeup is always flawless.
If you had to give just one beauty tip/piece of advice, what would it be?
Mascara, mascara, mascara!
What is your beauty fantasy?
I’d love to watch how popular MUAs apply makeup on others, of different features, complexions, skin types etc. I like to see how others work their craft and make use of what they have.
If you could, what would you like to change within the beauty industry?
There’s nothing I would change right now. There are so many opportunities to learn and hone your craft. The people I look up to are friendly and humble and always willing to share. It’s a supportive community of makeup artists for the most part, and I love it.
