Today we’d like to introduce you to Mykia Robbins.
Hi Mykia, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
Hello to all! My name is Mykia, but you may call me Kia (Beats by Kia Artistry).
My journey for beauty began at a very young age where I was always fascinated by the appearance makeup added to natural features.
However, my journey to perfecting my craft began on a rocky road. There was one instance where I went to have my makeup professionally done; however once finished I was not pleased with my results.
From there, I began with the “end in mind” (Stephen R. Covey). I simply thought, why pay for a service when I can learn to do it myself. From there, I have been a self-taught MUA for over 7 years.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Honestly, any dream worth fulfilling has challenges along the way but it’s what you do to course through that makes the difference.
Oftentimes than not, I have been placed with an artistic block of finding new and different ways of expressing my creative talents. Be it perfecting my cut-crease looks, knowing which colors work best together, or even the simple component of color matching foundation.
However, whenever I’m being too hard on myself, I go with the flow, and I am always able to rest assured that I have the foundation I just need to trust the process.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
As previously stated, I am a self-taught MUA. With the use of my creative talents, I specialize in enhancing the natural features of everyone I encounter.
Specifically, I have mastered: natural beats, soft glam, glitz/bold glam as well as bridal makeup.
Honestly speaking, I am most proud when I am able to see that smile on someone’s face after the transformation of makeup enhancement.
Additionally, I feel the thing that sets me apart is my personality and my ability to be personable with clients. My work speaks for itself: I can be fun, flirty, outgoing, and bold!
For my talents are not for me but others. As I always like to say, “Let’s Slay” because I plan to take over the world one slay at a time.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
I would like to take the time to give thanks and let it be known that I am very appreciative for this experience and opportunity!
Additionally, my talents do not stop here, and I have a plethora of talents I would love to share with the world. Make sure to stay in touch and follow my journey along the way!
