Welcome back! And welcome if you are new here 💕💕💕
I am so happy to present You all with interview with this amazing green beauty sista that is Danielle Schleese! I don't know where to begin - she is a drop dead gorgeous cruelty free make up artist who does Youtube videos and so much more than that, she is building her own brand (more on that later), is a visual artist as well - is there no end of your talents Danielle? She is a wizard with her make up brushes too - and if you ever saw at least one of her social media posts or videos, you will know why - all the looks she does are AMAZEBALLS - seriously, one is better than the last one, you only have to look at thumbnails at her YouTube videos to know you want to watch all of her videos ASAP. I looove this girl and I am so sure you guys will too. All her talents aside, her personality is what you will fall for - she is so funny that you are guaranteed to leave in a better mood than you started with! So, go on to have a Danielle day and you can thank me later! All of her social media will be linked at the end of this post.
💕 Please introduce Yourself?
Hi my name is Danielle, I’m a professional make up artist and visual artist as well. I am also the co-founder of Holistic Beauties and online skin care e-commerce store. I run a YouTube channel which hosts various makeup tutorials, challenges, and lifestyle of vlogs, I am super passionate about makeup, art, beauty, and animals. So I’ve chosen to use makeup as a main path of expression and combining art to help inspire and educate other women on the benefits of clean, cruelty-free beauty.
*Is there no end of your talents? - R.

💕 Tell us a secret?
Secret: I’ve had my lips done ✅ well... not so much a secret I’m very open about it and value honesty, so I want to give it.
It’s something that shocks most people to know because they think I’m high and mighty to toxic free living. For me it’s more about the art of the makeup and beauty, I just happen to love the added benefits and the evolution of plant based products! I realize we can’t escape toxins anyway they’re everywhere and a part of life. For me, at the time it was a personal choice from an artist and balance standpoint.
