Tell us about yourself, Briana.
My name is Briana Wright but I go as Briana Monique’ on my social media’s. I’m a 21-year-old rising beauty influencer just trying to get to the top! Currently, I live in Orlando, Florida but I’m was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia. I’ve only been living in Florida for a little over a year and since I’ve made this move here, my life completely did a 360 but in a really good way! One day, I would love to build my own cosmetic brand or even a fashion line of some sort. I’m a Scorpio so I’m very determined to reach this goal. Scorpios can be very stubborn and don’t like asking for help so I’m trying to pursue all my dreams and goals on my own! Although a little help or push doesn’t hurt especially if people are willing to help.
What inspired you to create a YouTube Channel?
Funny story, I never wore makeup in school and a big reason for a while was because my parents didn’t allow it but once I got to my senior year of high school, I stumbled upon makeup tutorials on YouTube and it was actually a tutorial of Symphani Soto, ever since then I was obsessed with watching makeup tutorials. I worked a full-time job at a hospital and almost every night, I would get off and go to either CVS, Walgreens, Walmart or Target to look for drugstore makeup products because that’s all I could afford. I would come home and play with the makeup until I really learned how to make it look good and natural. People would tell me I did my makeup really well then I came to the conclusion that I could do this YouTube thing and make it a career because I absolutely love doing makeup!
Sheen Magazine is the Ultimate Beauty Guide for the Modern Day Woman, what is your holy grail product?
My holy grail product right now definitely has to be the Bobbi Brown Weightless Foundation! It’s definitely full coverage but you can apply a small amount to make it look super natural! I’m obsessed!
You showcase both drugstore and high-end products on your channel but which of the two do you prefer? Why?
I prefer drugstore products for sure! Only because you can really get a nice beat look for such an affordable price. Drugstore products are really on the come up. Drugstore actually even has the best foundations.
How are you able to stay consistent on your channel? Do you find yourself struggling with anything as an online influencer?
Right now, to be honest, I’m struggling with being consistent on YouTube because I’m trying to figure out new content to put on my channel besides just makeup tutorial. My subscribers want more than just makeup and I want to give that to them while still being interesting and not just throwing something random on my channel. The only thing I can say I’m struggling with online as an influencer is branching out and trying new things and always trying to stay on the trends that are really popping at the moment that people want to see.
What can we expect to see from Briana Monique’ in the future?
In the future be on the look for me being very successful with life and having my own successful business. Hopefully, other things than just makeup and make a difference in my community. But who knows the future has such much space for me to pursue whatever I put my mind and heart to! Just watch out for ya girl!
