I love me some awesome beauty tips, especially when they come from a fabulous gal like Chicara, the creative individual behind the blog, lipglosskisses.com. I’d been following her on social media for quite some time and loved the content she was putting out there on the interwebs. When I saw her YouTube videos, I knew I had to find out more about this girl. I’m always inspired by women who follow their passion enough to put themselves out there, especially through video. Video adds depth to a person’s online profile, while at the same time introducing a sense of familiarity and vulnerability in equal measure. You really get to know a person when they create great video content, and for me, it’s made even more impressive when they’re girly and they’re South African. Nothing like a touch of lekker girl power! You can learn a lot from this girl, if you’re looking for online content inspiration for your business.

It also just so happens to be Chicara’s birthday today, so Happy Birthday Chicara!! Even more reason to feature this fabulous female!

So read on to find out more about this fabulous blogger who shares her insights on the world of beauty, fashion and lifestyle…
