My Interview with Liv Reese

What inspired you to enter the world of social media & why? – I have been modeling and acting for about 6 years and when the industry shut down during COVID I began modeling for brands at home. That led me to content creation and brand photography! I started posting more and more on social media and eventually grew a following and booked campaigns with larger brands.

Did you ever imagine yourself becoming an influencer? – Honestly, yes. I’ve always been a leader rather than a follower and I like to think of myself as a trendsetter. I love taking photos and documenting/sharing my life on social media so it really is the best job. I have so much fun working with brands and getting to review/share my favorite products with my audience.

Growing up, what was your dream job/profession? – When I was younger if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I definitely would say to be famous… I’ve always wanted to model or act! I have always been creative and loved fashion and beauty.

What advice would you give someone trying to enter a career of becoming a content creator? – Don’t give up! It’s all about trial and error and seeing what works for YOU and your account. It takes a lot of time and hard work to grow your following, learn how to shoot/edit/post content, and work with brands so don’t get discouraged and try not to compare yourself to others. Everyone starts somewhere!

How do you define your personal style? – My personal style is very girly and colorful. I like to go big or go home when it comes to my outfits – I style myself head to toe and accessorize with a bag and jewelry! One word to describe me and my style is EXTRA.

What would you say are your style staples within your wardrobe? – I have so many crazy tops so solid bottoms (skirts, shorts, pants) and shoes are definitely staples. I love a good crop top or tank top or oversized button down that you can style in different ways!

What is your favorite beauty brand? – This is a hard one because I have SO many! I love drugstore beauty brands like Wet n Wild, E.l.f Cosmetics, and Maybelline. Dior Beauty is probably my favorite luxury makeup brand, I’m obsessed with their blush! A few of my other favs are Mac Cosmetics, FENTY Beauty, NARS Cosmetics, and Makeup Revolution. My all time fav is probably Morphe because they do creative collabs with MUAs and celebrities!

In your beauty collection, what are your makeup favorites? – Some of my favorite makeup products are FENTY Beauty’s highlight wand, Charlotte Tilbury’s contour wand, NARS liquid blush, the Morphe x Madison Beer channeling surfing eyeshadow palette, IT Cosmetics your skin but better foundation, E.l.f. Cosmetics’s 24 hour camo concealer, dragun beauty’s pink translucent setting powder, benefit 24 hour brow setter, pat mcgrath’s LABS Fetish Eyes mascara, shiseido’s eyelash curler, and Dior lip oil!

If you have to choose one moment from your career so far, what would you consider to be the best & why? – I was just announced as InfluenceHer Collective’s Beauty Influencer of the Year and I could not be more excited! I’m beyond happy and honored. I’m honestly shocked. It means so much to me to have won! I feel like it really solidifies my hard work to date.
