                                           Six Questions

 

Sharifah: Since you wrote a chit chat blog post about insecurities, do you think girls who don’t fit with the standard of beauty/ideal looks are targeted?

Jessy: I feel like the standards of beauty are constantly changing. So one minute, being skinny is the thing, then the next minute, being thick is the thing – I feel like as females, we’re ALL targeted at some point for our bodies. There will always be something that we don’t fit into and therefore we will be targeted for it. If being ‘thick’ is the standard – I’ll instantly be targeted for being too skinny, especially as I’m a black female, because to be ‘thick’ is part of the stereotype we have.

Sharifah: What are your 2018 goals?

Jessy: So I’m currently in my first year of AS, studying Biology, Chemistry, English literature and History. In the end, I want to achieve 4 As. (We pray to God) I really want to work on my hobbies, such as my art and my blog during the summer. I just want to progress within the two and hopefully see some great results whether it be through engagement or just a development of my art skills.

Sharifah: How do you balance sixth form with blogging?

Jessy: Girl – I feel like the best way I can put it is to prioritise and be organised. I give myself one day of the week to sort my blog and personal life out. Staying on top of school is important because if that slips then the blog slips too. I will definitely admit that I’ve been slacking with blog posts but I’m not in a rush to write at the moment – my A-levels are only two years, I have my whole life to build my blog to be as big as I want it to. So prioritising is key.

Sharifah: In your chit chat blog post, you said your parents didn’t let you wear makeup and why was that?

Jessy: Yes – so during secondary school, my mum was adamant about me not wearing makeup to school. I am free to do so now but whilst at secondary school, I think my mum just felt like ‘what’s the point? You’re young. Let your face be’. There is the power of makeup and I guess she just didn’t want me to get unnecessary attention from the opposite sex. But I think she would have been fine with it if it was my hobby, but makeup just didn’t interest me during secondary school. But now that I am more interested in makeup, I’m happy that I don’t feel reliant on it. Personally, to have worn it at a young age, it would have been hard for me not to feel dependent on makeup. Especially as I had/have acne marks. Now, with or without it, I feel secure within myself. But I am aware that everyone is different when it comes to makeup.

Sharifah: What’s your favourite clothing store?

Jessy: Select! Without a doubt. Hands down! I also prefer boutiques/smaller name brands compared to high street fashion like river island/H&M.

Sharifah: What are the 3 beauty trends that you hate?

Jessy: I would say, one would have to be the use of a lot of highlighter. Now- I love highlighter. And Amrezy is the queen of highlighting. But unless it’s applied properly, then it loses that breathtaking effect in my opinion. I believe that there can be a thing of too much highlighting. The second would be the squiggly eyebrows – it was a no for me. And lastly, I think the trend that I hated the most was the grey contacts. Great for Halloween but not so much a ‘natural’ look I think.
