Name: Eddyleisy Figaro
When my little sister showed me a Youtube Video of a German makeup artist I was fascinated immediately! However, makeup was great but I didn’t feel confident enough to start a Youtube channel so I kept on researching and found some fashion bloggers. I loved it right away but I was very disappointed that there weren’t many dark-skinned fashion bloggers who I could’ve identify myself with in Germany (I was 15 years old at that time). So I thought… I’m going to be a fashion blogger to inspire other minorities like me! Unfortunately I wasn’t that confident at this age so I started several blogs but always end up deleting them.
2. Did you ever think you would become so passionate about it?
To be honest, No! I never thought blogging about fashion would be so much fun. It’s stressful sometimes and there is surely pressure to be A++ but you get so much back from followers and sometimes from companies too. I love to get messages from my readers or people who feel inspired by me which really makes me happy and that pushes me to be more active and to provide better content and pictures!
3. What inspires your looks for the day?
Magazines, Blogs and celebrities sometimes. My style is quite simple but I like to look sexy without showing too much skin and I love to wear pieces that make me feel taller and also very feminine at the same time. When I wake up in the morning my OOTD really depends on how I feel and how busy my schedule is going to be but if I feel sexy, I’m going to wear something sexy.
4. What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a fashion blog?
Just do it, believe in yourself and do NOT compare yourself to other bloggers (get inspiration but do not compare)!
5. Do you have big plans for your fashion blog in the near future?
I want to reach and inspire more people worldwide and hope to interact with them more. My dream is to launch my own beauty/hair brand one day and I’m already working on that. I think my blog is a great platform for that. My next step is to attend Paris or Milan Fashion Week next year, in order to see how everything works and if this fashion path is for the long haul. All of this starts with more and more followers, so the next step would be to stand out more in fashion blogger jungle!
6. What are your favorite things to do outside of blogging?
Traveling! I just love to see new things, meet new people and learn from other cultures! My family is pretty much multicultural and I guess that’s why I’m so open-minded and always ready for a new adventures! Besides that I love to meet friends in a bar or restaurant to talk about our lives, dreams, goals and of course a bit of gossip.
