Skincare & Beauty has been a rapidly growing industry in recent years, heavily due to the rise of social media and YouTube! Deli LéVon is a content creator focusing on everything skincare, beauty, & complexion! From demonstration videos to product reviews, Deli is creating content that delivers both quality & knowledge! He’s quickly established an online community that is as passionate as him, as he is about creating.
We spoke with Deli about his start in content creation, his must-have products, and what’d he’d like to see for his future!
Check out the interview below!
C: “Hi Deli! :) First off, thank you for being here and speaking with me today! I’m excited to get to know more about you! Let’s start with the basics, where are you from?”
D: “I’m based out of Los Angeles, California. However, I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Literally in the middle of America. Growing up, I always wanted to live in Los Angeles, so when the opportunity presented itself, I jumped on it.”
C: “That’s very exciting! So what inspired you to start creating and putting yourself out there online?”
D: “Growing up, I noticed there wasn’t a lot of representation for people like myself. The lack of representation continues to motivate me to create content that inspires other people to live their best life and love the skin they are in.”
C: “I feel you 100% & I’m so glad that you’re out here representing. ❤️ You’re definitely one of those accounts that loves to give quality content consistently! How do you stay on top of creating content?”
D: “Staying on top of content isn’t as easy as it seems, but I think the main thing that keeps me going is remembering why I started making content. There is definitely a lot of behind the scenes work involved in the content I create. It doesn’t help that I’m a perfectionist, so I do my best to produce quality content. With the content I create, there are certainly moments when I have to take a step away and enjoy life. I actually just took a break for almost two weeks recently, but I’m back to posting now. The break process is essential for me, as it allows me to find more inspiration for future content.”
C: “Definitely, the breaks are necessary! Your work has been recognized by brands like Fenty Beauty, Vesca Beauty, Urban Decay, and so many others. What achievements are you most proud of?”
D: “Thank you for recognizing my previous work. I am very proud of all of my accomplishments and hope to work with many more brands throughout this journey. The achievement I’m most proud of would be my ad for Sephora + Fenty Beauty’s Pro Filt’r Matte Foundation. On top of being a massive Rihanna fan, that’s a moment I’ll never forget because it was one of the first times I worked with a major brand.”
*INTERVIEW CONTINUED BELOW*
C: “Yesss, now that’s major!!! Congratulations on your wins, they’re so well deserved! ❤️ Now let’s get into some skin! You’re complexion is gawgeoussss! We need to know your top 3 skincare products!”
D: “My skincare favorites change over time, but the staples that I use in all of my routines are facial masks, toners, and serums. The Cold Plunge Pore mask by Olehenriksen provides a cooling effect that I’m obsessed with. Fenty Skin’s Fat Water toner is that girl. The packaging and overall effect it has on my skin is a game changer for me. Lastly, I love a good serum to target my specific skincare needs. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Good Molecules always provides me with the hydration I need.”
C: “Those are some key products! Now we need to know your 3 MUST HAVE makeup products! What you got for us?”
D: “When it comes to my MUST HAVE makeup products, I can’t go without a brow pencil, concealer, and a good powder to balance out my oils. I’m obsessed with the products Fenty Beauty comes out with but I have favorites from other brands like Huda Beauty, Kosas, and Rare Beauty.”
C: “Are these also brands that you’d like to work with in the future?”
D: “It’s still a dream that I’ve worked with big brands this early in my journey, but I would like to continue the journey by working with more brands found in your typical makeup store. I would like to partner with brands that truly align with my vision of creating a space for people that look like me.”
C: “Well I’m so excited to see what the future holds for you! Once again, thank you so much for chatting with me and hope to finally meet you in person soon! Keep doing amazing!! :)”
