With over 363,000 subscribers on YouTube and 157,000 followers on Instagram, Jasmine Brown is an emerging social star that we can’t stop talking about. She’s a curly-haired beauty with a fire personality that’s making her mark in the digital world. From beauty to fashion, her DIY tutorials inspire thousands of people who tune in to watch her videos everyday. Not to mention, the girl has a knack for literally making you LOL (a bonus in our book).
Being one of five winners from our 2015 model search competition, Jasmine is no stranger to the Wet Seal family. We caught up with her recently and took a trip down to San Juan Capistrano & Laguna Beach, CA where we teamed up to bring you head-to-toe Wet Seal looks to add to your ongoing log of spring style inspo. Plus, Jasmine shared how to achieve her half-up curly bun right here on our blog. Keep reading to learn more about her and hit that ‘pin it’ button on all the looks you see here!
WS: Sooo, how did you get started with YouTube?
Jasmine: I actually randomly started my YouTube channel just barely a year ago, because of always getting asked by my followers what makeup I used and what hair products I used to keep my big curly hair tamed. So I started off with just those two videos. And very quickly my channel grew more and more, so I just kept going with more videos people requested.
WS: What is it about makeup that you can’t get enough of?
Jasmine: I don’t even know what it is, I have TONS of makeup, more than I need and I continue to get myself more. It’s an addiction and I don’t even wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis. But when I do, I just love the way makeup can smooth and even my skin tone, make my eye shape pop, and the way I can wear basically any colors that I want on my lips and not care what people think. It just makes me feel beautiful and glamorous! But don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel ugly without makeup, no one actually “needs” makeup. It just gives me an extra boost of confidence, making me feel like a real life Barbie doll or Beyoncé..lol. Or even just because a little bit of makeup can make you go from tired looking to bright and awake. To me it really is an art. I love to draw, so when I’m drawing on my wing eyeliner and I get it perfect I just feel good. #EyelinearOnFleek, lol jk! I just love the way makeup can make anyone feel even more beautiful then they naturally already are.
WS: Serious question: Who’s your current #MCE (Man Crush Everyday)?
Jasmine: My current #MCE is Michael Ealy. He has been and will always and forever will be my man crush for the rest of my life. He’s just the most gorgeous man I have ever seen, and not many can disagree. I just wish he had a son that was my age so that I could marry since he’s out of my age range! Lol!
WS: In your opinion, what are 3 wardrobe essentials that every girl needs and why?
Jasmine: (1) Boyfriend jeans are a MUST-HAVE! Cute and comfy, and they go with anything! (2) A long plain colored cardigan. When you have a bomb outfit and it’s a little too chilly to wear it, just throw on one of these baby’s and you’re good to go! (3) Can’t go wrong with round sunglasses. They’re my favorite shape, and they look good on any face!
WS: Lastly, where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Jasmine: 5 years from now, I hope to see myself as a successful model, on magazine covers and in commercials. All of that! My dream has always been to be signed to a big well-known modeling agency. I love being in front of a camera. So I hope by then I’m able to fulfill that dream. And as far as YouTube, I will always continue to make videos! I hope that by then I’ve hit my 1 million subscribers goal! As well as being able to meet lots of my supporters by then, because without them none of the stuff I’m doing now would have been possible.
