Mom Blogger Monday: Asia Marie Sandoval
Asia Marie Sandoval is ready to share her beauty, makeup and fashion knowledge with the world. The Norwalk mom of Christian and Aaliyah began applying makeup as a hobby. But soon her makeup application skills caught the attention of fashion editors who have since hired her to do makeup for local, national and international print photo shoots.
Through her experience Asia decided to answer the many questions she would get from clients and followers through a public platform by creating her blog, AMarie Artistry where she shares tips on achieving a flawless face look, and how to catch that glow. She also writes honest product reviews and explains things such as the difference between lash extensions and lash lifts.
But that's not all Asia does. Last year, she created her swim line, Vibes Beach Lifestyle, a boutique lifestyle brand that offers chic bikini and one-piece bathing suit designs.
Best of all, Asia makes it a point to give back.
She has volunteered at several battered women and children shelters offering beauty makeovers and gifts to abused women.
She does it "in hopes of uplifting their spirits and self esteem."
You rock, Mama! We love your work and can't wait to continue watching your makeup and fashion ventures take off!
What inspired you to become a blogger?
I was inspired to be a blogger when I started meeting other bloggers and also because a lot of my followers ask me different questions about my makeup routine and product reviews so I was inspired to share my knowledge with others.
