Hi! I’m Leesha, I’m 26 and I run xSparkage.
xSparkage is a website showcasing all things beauty. This includes everything from skincare, haircare, and makeup, to other forms of beautiful things, like fashion, health, and family.
I started getting into makeup when I was a sophomore in highschool. My friend took me to the MAC Pro Store in Hollywood, and it completely opened my eyes to the world of makeup! I have been very into the online makeup community since then, starting with Livejournal communities and makeup forums and eventually finding my way to YouTube, creating video tutorials and reviews about all things beauty. Today, My youtube has almost 500,000 subscribers and over 10 million channel views, while xSparkage.com gets over 250,000 unique views monthly.
Outside of my online beauty world, I’m a huge fan of photography, baking, and my two kitties, Kiki and Babyyak, who are both from Humane Societies, which I’m a huge supporter of! Babyyak was adopted in chicago in 2008, and Kiki was adopted in Austin in August of 2010. They’ve become great buddies and love to play!
In June of 2014, I had my daughter, Violet.
She has become the light of my life, and is pretty much the reason I wake up every morning. She’s a super happy girl with a firecracker personality. :)
