Many of us can relate to going to school to achieve career goals, and we end up rushing from class to class, studying really hard to get those good grades, and juggling all of it along with anything else we may have going on. In the midst of teaching ourselves and learning all that we can, we often strive to find something to inspire us, something to pull out the creativeness within our souls. Kiara Michelle, who runs the blog Kiaramichelle.com, is one such 20-year-old college student from Florida making her way in the medical field and inspiring her readers with her bohemian-esque style. Through her blog, she shares how you don’t just have to stick to one field in life. Instead, she believes you should move with your heart, try out as many of your passions as you can, and let your creativity thrive in as many roles as you can manage. She is a perfect example of being both a fashionista (when not in her scrubs!) and a medical student. Talk about the best of both worlds for her! Check out just how passionate Kiara is about living your life to the fullest and how adding some style will make life feel more loved.
Cliché: What are your beauty/fashion routines?
Kiara Michelle: I don’t think I have a certain fashion routine just because whatever mood I’m in is what I go for clothing-wise. When it comes to makeup, I am super simple. In college, I don’t feel the need to cake my face; I usually lean towards a nice BB cream to freshen up my face, mascara (it’s a must), and I always love to do a slight contour on the cheeks!
Name the top three products you couldn’t live without this season.
This season is exciting for me because I get to play with dark lips and a matte finish face. Three products that I cannot live without this fall season is my Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder to set my foundation (I have a super oily T-zone), my Benefit Hoola bronzer, and of course my Mac lipstick in “Rebel.” I feel like I am fall-ready with those three products.
Any staple items that you think are fall must-haves?
My fall must-haves are pretty basic because I love to keep certain pieces casual just to layer up and add one statement item to my outfit. My first fall must-have is definitely black booties because they can go with any outfit. Black booties can give your look an urban/edgy feel, or you can wear them casually and dressy. My second fall must-have definitely has to be a leather jacket/vest. I love the dark look for the fall. A leather motorcycle jacket and wine colored lips is definitely my go-to fall look.
