My name is Claudia Cooper (my nickname is Beep) and I am originally from a modeling background. Having spent over 15 years modeling around the world I spent my time constantly having my make up done and was always asking questions and learning tricks on set. So I wanted to create a place where I could share my passion for beauty with others. This is why I created my website and youtube channel. The more I learn the more about the ever expanding world of beauty the more it excites me and the more I want to share it with others on Beep Beauty.
What do I do best?
Research. I am a total bookworm and honestly love researching any topic. I have always been that way even as a kid. I now use this skill in relation to beauty and wellness. I love researching products so I can really explain them to my followers.
What makes me the best version of myself?
The courage to start. I had been wanting to create a blog for years and it wasn’t until my partner encouraged me to pursue my dream last year that I did it and I never looked back.
What are my aspirations?
My personal goals are to be happy and true to myself in whatever I do. My business goals are similar. I want to be successful and expand my social media platform while maintaining its integrity and not losing focus of what I originally intended my business to be. I want to help people feel beautiful and be well informed when choosing their beauty products.
My Biggest Success?
Moving to California and creating a life here. I jumped on a flight to the US with no idea that I would wind up falling in love and staying. I met my future husband here and I wake up every day feeling extremely lucky to live in a place that I love with the person I love and doing something I am really passionate about.
My Most Challenging Moment?
Despite what I responded in the previous question moving away from my family in London to LA was extremely challenging and a day doesn’t go by when I wish I could be nearer to them. However I think this sacrifice has made me more determined than ever to be successful here.
‘So hum’. I learned this phrase through my yoga and meditation practise and it means ‘I am that’ where that means all of creation. As a mantra it is a great way to calm the mind and stay in the moment.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
There are so many...I think I would have to say Gwyneth Paltrow is a big inspiration. Reading her blog Goop really inspired me to create my own. Cindy Crawford has always been an inspiration as a model and one of the first to become her own brand. She is an inspiration as a businesswoman. I also admire all of the incredible women in the beauty sphere who have have had the courage to turn an idea into a successful line of beauty products. Examples include, Jenefer Palmer of Osea Malibu, Sarah Happ and Indie Lee.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
I love to travel full stop. I have been blessed to travel pretty extensively because of my modelling career. Some of my favorite places I have been are the Amalfi Coast, the Bordeaux region of France where my parents live and Tulum in Mexico. I went to Thailand at the beginning of this year though and I think that has to be my all time favorite. There is truly something magical about the place; the warm people, the white sandy beaches, the incredible cuisine...I would go back in a heartbeat.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
I couldn’t be without my Bobbi Brown make up brush set, my Mason Pearson hairbrush, a big pot of Coconut oil and a great SPF.
My Current Passions?
I am currently really passionate about meditation. Having started to get serious about meditating daily last year I have noticed so many positive changes in my whole outlook on life. It’s a total game changer!
