Today we’d like to introduce you to Terrionna Styles.
Terrionna, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
On a leap of faith, I moved from Flint, Michigan (before the water crisis) to the big city of Los Angeles, CA. Originally, I came to study film and to create opportunities for myself. During my film studying years, I fell in love with the camera and in love with turning real beautiful things into imagery, and that is how makeup came into play as a passion of mine. The face is a canvas and enhancing natural beautiful features through artistic expressions such as applying makeup is undoubtedly another way I find myself in solitude with creativity. The Makeup Trap is a platform where all things pop-beauty come to life. I want to create an inspiring platform that encourages beauty on the inside and out on that is my focus.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
To say that anything is a smooth road is a lie. Makeup became my escape from painful experience in my life from losing my mother to an incarcerated father. I find myself struggling to be a better woman, than the one I was the day before. I am always interested in learning, growing, and expanding its beautiful to me. The things I have or should I say continue to struggle with is encouraging myself not to give and run away from the things that challenge me as a person. My advice to other women is to PERSEVERE. Look at me, I have experienced some of the worst human experiences but still, I rise and I will continue to rise until it kills me to do so. You are your worst enemy and your best cheerleader, it’s ultimately up to you which one you feed.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Makeup Trap Beauty Studio – what should we know?
I am my own boss! I am a freelance makeup artist. The Makeup Trap Beauty Studio right now is a traveling glam squad based in the Los Angeles.
What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman just starting her career?
Follow your heart from day one. I wasted a lot of time, money and most importantly, energy pursuing things that did not serve me. Find what serves YOU, not what you see around you that looks good. Certain careers have become trends and now all of the sudden, everyone wants to be the same thing. Be unique, there is so much more you can create in this world.
