Mynxii White is a huge inspiration, success, and sweetheart.
She is currently the Contributing Online Beauty Editor for FLAUNT Magazine
, Beauty Editor for Style Defined NYC
, a Buzznet Buzzmaker
, in the midst of writing a book, working on a new hair color line, collaborating on a capsule fur collection, modeling, and working (as a pro makeup artist of 13 years) on set at RuPaul's Drag Race
(she was taking a break on set during our interview)!
Her past is just as impressive as her present, and the list of accomplishments and prestigious names she's learned from/worked with are endless. We'll soon have PT.2 and PT.3 of Mynxii's story and go into it a bit more :) Despite all of her success, she is still remarkably humble and kind.
She is a prime example of her own philosophies:
Work hard, focus, put love into every moment, and you will not fail.
☆☆ Mynxii W. in the Enneagram T ☆☆
"I've changed my life about a thousand times. I still don't know what I'm doing, and the secret about that is - that feeling will never go away, unfortunately. You gotta keep fighting through it... Take days one at a time. Each is completely different, take each moment as it comes. Anything can happen in 24 hours that can change your life for the better or for the worse.
You have to be confident and put care and love into every detail and everything you do, because what you do now is laying down the foundation for what happens tomorrow.
As long as you're the best person you can be, and you do your best in every single moment, everything will happen naturally on its own. You have to roll with the punches.
Take what life gives you, just roll with it, and evolve."
"Shit happens. Its gonna happen. You can't beat yourself up because you're gonna lose yourself. There's no way to avoid it- it's all a part of growing up and finding out who you are. Its okay, its never too late.
Just work as hard as you possibly can. Hard work always pays off. Never lose focus. One of my favorite things that Marco Marco, hes one of my favorite designers, taught me is 'dont panic.' Because when you get through it, you'll either be like 'yeah, that fucking sucked', or like, 'wow it wasnt that bad,' but either way, you're gonna get through it."
"You just have to do something positive or productive every single day, and bad things become less frequent. It's really rare that I have a bad day. You gotta stay positive. I'm really, really blessed. Really, really blessed. And I have amazing people around me. Giving back is really beneficial. Sharing your knowledge, sharing your wealth, helping people, using your success as a platform to help others succeed is another way to continue your own success. Giving- the more you give, the more you get at the end of the day."
