Bea Marin is one influencer to watch out for. Starting out as a blogger, she shared her love for beauty, fashion, and more. She later made a name for herself with brand endorsements like Keds and Tresemmé.
Meanwhile, this young lady is moving at her own pace—balancing school and other commitments. We decided to chat with Bea at WEAVE‘s store opening for tidbits on fashion, blogging, and even her favorite TV shows.
Lately, it’s WEAVE. I’m wearing one of the dresses right now and I’m super obsessed. I’m trying to incorporate more feminine pieces into my looks because I’m more boyish.
Casual and laidback, kind of androgynous. I like to mix masculine and feminine elements.
It’s not really new, but I’m just more into highlight right now.
Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector.
I like to mix [natural and smokey looks.] I don’t really have a specific favorite because I like smokey eyes, toned-down lips, glowy, and slightly contoured skin.
When I started, it was more of a hobby when I was still in high school. Now, it turned into a business and I’ve reached a bigger audience.
I plan my feeds. I don’t post instantly, it usually takes me about a day. For an event, it takes me a few hours to make sure that it goes well with my feed and that the pictures fit my aesthetic. I don’t take pictures that are “wala lang.”
Chokers. I feel like it’s getting kind of overdone and I was so obsessed with chokers. I had so much! Now I’m trying to avoid it because there needs to be a new [trendy] accessory.
Big earrings! I’ve never worn earrings [that much.] I thought my ear holes were going to close and now I’m just getting into it.
Rihanna. I want to watch her live.
I think [when I went to] Hong Kong last year. It was with my friends and it was my first time traveling in an international flight alone because they went ahead. It felt really independent and fun.
I guess just being with my friends [in Hong Kong.] Also the shopping—there are so many nice finds there, especially in bazaars.
Kendrick Lamar’s new album. My favorite song is “Love.”
Probably live Sophia Amoruso’s life because it’s more glam. [Laughs] Riverdale is full of mystery and there’s death, so never mind! [Laughs]
Just keep working hard. It’s normal to go through fallbacks in life because it will lead to more success eventually.
Find your own style and don’t just copy what you see on Instagram or whatever’s “in.” Stick to what you feel like is true to you and don’t try so hard. Eventually, everything will come naturally for you. Also, find inspiration that resonates with your photo style.
I can’t think of anything I want to try right now. But I don’t want to do the ones that have already become basic like chokers, bodycon dresses, and high-heeled boots. I want them to change up a bit, hopefully.
