Interview with Kimberly Wyatt!

Kimberly Wyatt
In your welcome message video on the BM Beauty website, you say that you love make up. What would you say is your favourite beauty product, and why?
I would say that mascara is my favorite product! I have blonde eyelashes so I rarely go a day without pumping them up with BM Beauty thickening mascara!

Have you got a favourite product from the BM Beauty range? If so, why, and are there any other products you would strongly recommend?
Our mineral foundations contain zinc oxide which is a natural anti-inflammatory and is great for spot prone skin! It helps my problematic skin AND gives me the coverage that I need!

Do you have a make up/beauty tip that you'd like to share with us?
The better you prep your skin, the better everything you put on it looks!

How did you meet your business partner, Laura? And how did the BM Beauty brand form?
Laura and I met in 2008, I was a fan and label mate of her boyfriend's Scottish band Driveblind. He introduced me to Laura and I soon discovered her skincare range, Love The Planet. We became fast friends after bonding over our love of the environment and beauty products! I started selling some of her products on my website and then we decided to join forces and BM Beauty was born!

Apart from your passion for make up, why did you decide to launch a beauty range?
The idea for a makeup line derived from my online portal, BeautifulMovements.com. The BM Family has become an online community of loving and compassionate people working towards a better life. BM Beauty is an extension of my websites message.

Why do you think it's important for make up to be free from certain chemicals, and fragrances, and for cosmetics to be 'Cruelty Free'?
My favorite quote: "Be the Change you wish to see in the World." -Gandhi

Does your cosmetics line have a specific aim? Are you trying to target a particular female market? If so, why?
Our aim is to make the all natural choice fun, affordable and easy to use for all ages.

How would you describe your cosmetics line?
BM Beauty is cruelty free and BUAV , PETA approved! It's a beautiful face with a no makeup feel! 

I think it's fantastic that you co-manage the brand and you're act as the face of it too. What made you take up the role of being the face of the line?
I like being on both sides of the camera!

How do you cope with co-managing a beauty brand as well as focusing on your music career? Is there a 50/50 split between the two?
I definitely have to be wise with my time. I like to find ways to cross-pollinate music and makeup using song titles and words that relate to Her Majesty and the Wolves with BM Beauty. Emerald Showers is a song title as well as the name of a BM Beauty Eyeshadow, so is Her Majesty. Finding ways to mix makeup with music and keep the integrity of Beautiful Movements intact is what I'm all about, it's the challenge that keeps me dreaming!

What advice would you give to those aspiring to break into the beauty industry or the business sector?
Do it because you love it and are passionate about it, listen to the advice around you but always form your own opinion and be forward thinking in how you connect with your market!
