10 QUESTIONS WITH EMMA DE KOCK
Over the last couple of months we have been working on bringing together our first ever capsule collection in collabaration with Emma De Kock from Evolved.
Emma is a professional make up artist and beauty enthusiast. With her quirky personality and gorgeous smile she can always be found having fun trying out the latest beauty and fashion trends.
Thrilled to have Emma join ranks with Differently, we chat to her about everything from her style to why she got started in the beauty industry…
WHAT WAS THE THEME FOR THE CAPSULE COLLECTION?
"The theme of this collection was to keep it simple, classic and classy. The collection conveys feminine designs in a classic palette of black and white."
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO CREATE A CAPSULE COLLECTION?
"Fashion and beauty have always gone hand in hand. I have always had an obsession with clothes and loved to play dress up since I was a child. I find that just as make up can help you to be creative and have fun so can fashion! It has always been a dream to create my own line and creating this collection helped me make my dreams a reality."
WHY DID YOU START EVOLVED MAKEUP?
"My biggest goal was to show how anyone can be beautiful not just with make up but learn to love themselves for who they are. Make up is just a small tool to allow people to bring their visions of themselves alive, to be an artist or simply have fun. I strive to show people new perspectives to evolve themselves, grow themselves, reinvent themselves and love just being themselves.
I hope and believe that my actions can help others to grow and evolve into the best versions of themselves."
WHEN DID YOU REALISE A CAREER IN BEAUTY WAS FOR YOU?
"It was one of those things that was kind of always in the back of my mind. When I was younger, I was obsessed with all things makeup! I couldn't wait to do my makeup or make over my friends before we went out. Only thing was, I never really realised you could actually have a career in beauty! Once I got my first taste of makeup in the "professional world", I was hooked."
WHAT WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR DRESS STYLE AS?
"Cute, classy and sassy"
WHAT 6 STATEMENT CLOTHING PIECES SHOULD EVERY GIRL HAVE IN THEIR CLOSET?
"I would definitely say everything I have designed in the Evolved x Differently collection is an absolute MUST HAVE as those kinds of pieces are my everyday wear. Putting the collection aside I would say: a pair of black Jeans, a Jumpsuit, a black blazer, a bodysuit, a plain white Tee and a Mini Skirt are everyday pieces that can be dressed up and down effortlessly."
WHAT 5 BEAUTY PRODUCTS SHOULD YOU NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE WITHOUT?
"Definitely a radiance primer or strobing cream, concealer, mascara, lipstick and a smile"
WHICH ELEMENT OF YOUR JOB DO YOU ENJOY MOST?
"I enjoy it all. My creative career is so varied. I’m not only a MUA but I’m also a business woman. I get to collaborate with amazing brands e.g. Differently - designing my very own and first clothing line, a total dream come true. I adore meeting and chatting to customers and I especially enjoy hearing back from them when they tell me how my makeup has changed their life and how beautiful and confident I made them feel. I also love showing a woman how easy it is to look amazing."
GIVE US 3 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT YOU THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE KNOW
"I guess it would be that I have 3 tattoos - very minimalistic, I am a great cook and I have never dyed or highlighted my hair #virginhair"
WHERE CAN OUR READERS FIND YOU?
"Definitely Instagram - I love filming tutorials and answering question from all my followers and make-up loving friends. It is a passion I love to share."
