Tayst Muse: Ines Naouali
When I started posting artwork to my page in 2015, Ines was one of the very first people I worked with. Ines & her friend, Alex Georgy sent me the most picturesque best friend Coachella pics & ever since, her photos have only gotten dreamier. Not only does her page give me major style goals, she is incredibly kind & inspires me daily with the quotes she posts to her IG stories. Based in sunny Los Angeles, Ines works full time as a Lifestyle Blogger & Social Media Coordinator.
Join me, as I dive into the creative mind of Ines.
T: Where do you find creative inspiration?
I: Everywhere. My best friends, social media, my city, but mostly I take inspiration from my parents. They are both very unique. My mom was born under a palm tree in North Africa and got an education in Paris. She moved to the states, became a model, and eventually a celebrity stylist. My dad was born in Israel. He served in the army and eventually made his way to The States, too, where he pursued his dream to become a contractor and architect. They're both very artistic individuals. Different from my career, but also very similar where I'm able to pull ideas from them and make them my own.
T: As far as Iphone apps, what are you using?
I: Instagram hands down. I use apps to help edit and achieve the look I'm going for. Lately, I've been obsessed with grain. I start by using FaceTune to get rid of any blemishes and then I bring it into Lightroom and use a few of my presets. Lastly, I use VSCO for any additional lighting and vintage looks I've been liking lately.
T: What's in your work "toolkit?"
I: Macbook Pro, three notebooks & my favorite pen in the entire world. It's called the Pilot Precise V5 RT. It'll change your life!
looking to the future -
T: 2018 is all about manifesting, what are some of your goals for the year?
I: Learning, learning, learning. Learning something new that I can apply in my career. Not being afraid of failing and asking a lot of questions.
T: Who has been your favorite company to work with? Who would you like to work with in the future?
I: Working with Revolve has been my favorite. Not only do I love the brand as a whole, but I love the team! They're so welcoming and FUN. I would love to work with Reformation in the future! A girl could dream, right?
