It's 2017 and i know more than ever that right now girls are spending a lot of time watching makeup Videos or going through the youtube channels of their favorite MUA. Well this MUA from Northern Virginia goes by the name of Michelle Diane, also known as the Owner of that fabulous glitter a lot of you might need to get your hands on from "Glam N Goth".
Who is glam goth?
glam goth is anything and everything that represents elegance and horror. we are hopeless romantics, rockstars, and trapstars. we are the new revolution in not just makeup but for how alternative, modified, artistic, and unique people are treated in society.
Tell me about the name of your brand and how it came to be.
when i was in beauty school my friends would always tell me I'm a like a lil goth sex kitten who loves glamour so i really just rode on that. about a year after school i was dating a guy who told me once "you think you goth shorty" lol and i made "GOTH SHORTY" my header on twitter. once we were over i changed it to "GLAM GOTH" cause that's literally the definition of who i am.
When did you know this is what you wanted to do with your life?
when i was 21 i dropped out of community college and ditched my dream of becoming a writer to go to fashion school but i couldn't afford it. so for like a year i was just partying and living life like i was going to die tomorrow because i felt like i had no purpose. i felt like a failure. but then i discovered Pat McGrath, a famous makeup artist and literally owns the beauty scene at every fashion week. i fell in love with the work she created and thats when i decided i was going to go go beauty school and become a famous makeup artist like her. a little down the line after working countless gigs and makeup retail stores i began to feel that feeling of not having a purpose again. so i created my own glitters and people wanted to to purchase them and well the rest is history.

Where do you intend to take your business, what do you wanna see for it in the future?
