I attended this year's Pride in Concert in Minneapolis with my best friend Amanda, and one of the acts that played was MAYDA. She put on an amazing show. The pop funk musician had great stage presence, weaving in and out of different musical stylings and genres effortlessly. I've since checked out more of her music and am hooked. Naturally, I was ecstatic to interview her for "What Do You Use?"
1. Tell me about yourself in 140 characters or less
"I am pretty much an 4'10 adopted Korean American enigma who sets up the pins only to knock em all down. I do it through music, performance, and movement. I have toured the world. My music has been featured on media such as the Rachael Ray show, weeds, bravo TV, HBO, the jersey shore and good morning America. I love to find new cultures to share my crazy perspective of life."
2. What’s your skincare routine like?
"I wash my face and skin everyday at least 2 times, but i don't use skin care products especially on my face. I believe that skin and the body will heal and grow itself naturally. Diet also helps the skin look good. Take Note: I am not a hippy!!! Plus I am lazy."
3. What are your holy grail makeup products?
"My makeup products are any eyeliner, mascara, and whatever the stylist has in her crazy box. I am not picky about brands but I am about how you use them."
