About Leesha
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. 

Violet- 6 months

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. :)

    Hi Leesha,

    Happy 2011 hope you had a restful holiday ;)

    My name is Melissa and I am writing to thank you on behalf of Cover FX.

    I am the Social Media and Marketing Coordinator here and regularly spend my time perusing the online world, i came across this video and another one a couple months back of you mentioning Cover FX!

    Thanks so much for featuring and trying our Cover FX cream foundation, we are so glad to see it’s found a home in your makeup routine!

    I think you received our Pro Starter Kit from the blogger panel at the Pasadena Show last year so the foundations are all pro sized. Let me know if you’d like me to send you the actual compact of the M10 in Cover FX cream or if you like the pro sized to send you another.

    We would love to include you in our outreach list let me know if that would be ok!

    Cheers,
    Melissa

    Hello Leesha :)

    Just found out about you and the first thing i can tell you is that you’re absolutely my new favourite “make-up junkie” to watch tutorials by! Love your vids and pictures, really good for me as a “neewbie” in makeup :)

    Continue to do what you’re doing, cause now you’re on of my favourites on my web-browser.

    (If it interests you, im also from Sweden, as the other girl in this comment section, haha)

    Thanks for sharing!

    Take care

    Having followed not necessarily a “look” but definitely incorporating your tips and tricks, including one or two products I never thought I would purchase, I can safely say you are my new make-up guru. Five different people told me how nice my make-up looked this morning alone! Thank you for sharing your thoughts online.

    Hey Leisha
    I am in love with your blog and channel I am a new subbie on your youtube channel and I love it especially your reviews cuz they’re very honest. I heard of a make up line that sells eyeshadow in a pan like M.A.C. the company is called Stars Make up Haven or SMH cosmetics I was wondering if you’d like to try them out there a lot cheaper than M.A.C. I believe their only.$6 an eyeshadow and M.A.C. is$ 11 so I was wondering of you could do a review on them cuz I love and trust your reviews and one more question about the krylon uv dayglow palette is it still available?

    Thank you so much for your amazing channel I love it your so sweet and down to earth and beautiful and I want to wish you the best of luck with anything you wish to do in your life your amazing and talented

    Love ya and take care bye

    Hi Leesha!

    Thank you sooooo much for all of your videos! You have inspired me so much and I have learned so much about makeup that my mom is now getting tips from me haha. I´ve been watching you on youtube for over a year and a half and I love everything you do! My little brother calls me crazy for always checking on youtube to see if you have posted a new video. I love how you are so honest on everything you reveiw. Sadly here in Iceland I can´t get any of your products(not evan a decent eyeshadow primer! I can´t find one that makes my eyeshadow last for at least 4 hours…) so I always look for something simuler.
    Keep up doing your amazing work!

    Many thanks from a 16 year old from Iceland!

    Dear leash

    My name is Amy, im 18, im from the UK and I am a commis chef ^^ (bottom ranking chef)
    In the kitchen its quite hard to be feminine and show that you are still a girl even though it’s a place mainly dominated by men. But on a plane flight to NYC last year I saw your you tube site and watched most of your vids. I have to say you gave me quite a good few tips on how to kinda spice up my look so that even though ive just come from the kitchen I can add a nice eye makeup to change myself so I feel like I am still an 18 year old not 44.

    Hey Leesha!

    I really love you makeup tutorials and the website. I love how you are able to use your makeup in order to show your personality and to makeup every inspirational look your’e own. I am not as advanced as you but I have always loved makeup and being a fashion major makeup is a big part of it. I was wondering if you would be able to suggest some makeup that is both affordable but with good quality. I love bright colors like you do especially pinks and purples, and teal as well as anything with sparkles or glitter. Also, I was looking for palettes so I can easily have everything together.
    I hope you can help me
    Thanks,
    Melanie

    I just recently found you on IG and subscribed to your YouTube. You’re already such an inspiration. I recently decided I wanted to start getting more involved with actually posting beauty content on social media. Makeup has been my obsession since high school. I’m 26 with a 9 month old son in Texas I have a small business degree and an accounting degree and am currently seeking accounting work. Outside of that, I eat and breathe all things beauty and also all things baking. So when I saw that you like to bake too, I was like, “This woman is like my twin.” Haha Just wanted to say hi and tell you that you’re such an inspiration.
