I first stumbled across Elicia Tate looking for upcoming talent to feature on FabFashionReport. She struck me as a beautiful model with the look to make it far in the industry.
But her bonus talent as a makeup artist makes her a double threat. So I reached out to Elicia for a interview and she gladly accepted.
Lateek: What city were you born and raised?
Elicia: Worcester, Mass.
Lateek: Where does your artistic influence come from and when did you start modeling?
Elicia: I’ve always been artistic whether it be dance, painting, photography, etc. Janet Jackson is always someone I looked up to. Modeling started back up again this year.
Lateek: Everyone has to start somewhere. What was your first job?
Lateek: What was your most memorable challenge as a Model?
Elicia: Not to be stiff with shoulders.
Lateek: Who is your dream photographer to work with?
Elicia: This may seem vain, but myself. Just so I can get a feel for both sides.
Lateek: What advice do you have for other aspiring models?
Elicia: Just go for it, there’s something for everyone and if not make room.
Lateek: What upcoming event or fashion show are you looking forward to?
Elicia: My first music video
Lateek: What upcoming projects are you most excited about?
Elicia: Reaching 5k followers
Lateek: What does beauty mean to you?
Elicia: Strength, any one who is strong. No matter what physically and mentally strong.
Lateek: Tell me your experience as a makeup artist?
Elicia: I’ve been doing makeup for 10+ years, a lot has been self taught. I was a licensed cosmetologist, but I’ve learned more on my own then with school.
Lateek: What is your favorite product in your cosmetic arsenal?
Elicia: Probably my Profusion Contour Palette
Lateek: What is the best makeup tip that you can offer our readers?
Elicia: Always keep moisturized for a nice base.
I enjoyed our interview with model/MUA Elicia Tate and look forward to featuring the young lady again in the future.
