We had the good fortune of connecting with Keelaya Triplett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Keelaya, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson that the business has taught me is to be consistent in everything I do. It has taught me that when you put you can’t expect great things to happen if you don’t put 100% into the business. 

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I got to where I am today by watching my mother in middle and Highschool. My mom loved to dress nice and I loved that about her she taught me how to dress and a young lady. As I got older I stayed playing in makeup and fell in love with fashion. I used to want to go to F.I.T in NYC, but I decided to go another path but still keep fashion and makeup in my life as I got older. In my mid-twenties I decided to go hard at what I loved. I started doing my makeup more, wearing lashes and doing family makeup. I decided I wanted to be a MUE I enjoyed doing that more then MUA. This path is still very challenging for me. I have to push my self everyday to be better than the person I look in the mirror. A few lessons I learned on this journey is always trusting in God, being consistent and love yourself. I want the world to know that being selfless and kindness will take you a long way in life. Always treat other the way you would like to be treated.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best Friend was visiting the area I would first take her to the mall. One of my favorite malls is Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale.. They have great stores that I enjoy a lot and in the surrounding area they have great restaurants. We would eat at one of my favorite Fine dining restaurant Steak 44. We would visit my family, maybe hit a nice lounge for drinks and great music. We would visit the aquarium, lucky Strike, Paint and Sip etc.
