Get Her Look: Electric green eyeshadow is already a statement on its own, but you can take it a step further by pairing it with a glossy sheen. To make sure the color doesn't slip and slide, Ahn suggests applying a clear eye gloss before your colorful shadow.
How has Instagram impacted your life?
"I’m actually part of an artist collective that was started through Instagram. We showcase art by people of color, because they often don't have a platform or a physical gallery to showcase their work."
What is the name of the collective?
"The Art Hoe Collective."
What beauty trend are you feeling right now?
"I like to wear bright eyeliner, whether in the form of a blue cat-eye or just a burst of color. I think it looks great on dark skin."

What is your favorite form of social media?
"I definitely use Instagram the most. I have a private Snapchat, which is just for my friends. Instagram is the only social media platform I use to connect with the public."
How has Instagram influenced your modeling career?
"Because I’m not signed with any agencies, it’s a great way for me to meet new people and clients. It’s easy to recommend others in my field and see if we have common connections."
Because you keep your makeup routine fairly simple, do you pay attention to beauty trends?
"Not really. I think the fun in modeling is being able to try on all these different looks, and seeing other people’s visions through what they’re painting on you."

Get Her Look: Who says your eyeshadows have to be all matchy-matchy? We don't. And Tekele definitely doesn't either. Her neon eye look follows one strategy — just go for it. Meaning, use the brightest colors in your beauty arsenal. "Since it’s something that is a bit unusual, you might as well use vibrant colors," says Ahn. Apply the same shade to both lids, or, if you're feeling extra courageous, sport two complementary shades.
