With a TikTok account that boasts a cool 9.3 million followers—as well as a fanbase of more than 11 million across her multiple social media platforms—California native Kelianne Stankus does not take lightly to the fact that what she does reaches a big, big group of people. “I am very aware of the platform that I have and try my best to be a great role model and inspiration to my audience,” the 24-year-old actress, singer, dancer, and gymnast (she was previously a member of the U.S. National Acrobatic Gymnastics Team and competed in the World Championships) shared.
Now a member of The Hype House and the new Triller Compound, Stankus recently sat down with us to talk all things beauty, fitness and the fine line between staying motivated and taking a break.
You grew up outside of LA; do you consider yourself a “California Girl” when it comes to beauty?
Yes, I do consider myself that when it comes to beauty—mainly because I’ve mastered a routine where I can go from natural to glam in 15 minutes!
You post some super glam shots of your makeup and hair, in particular. Can you share any favorite products or treatments?
Hair care is just as important as skin care! Spending extra money to care for your hair is 100-percent worth it.
You grew up as an athlete. Is fitness still a big part of your life?
Fitness and gymnastics will always be a part of me. I have my seasons of being extremely motivated in the gym and others where I can’t find myself stepping foot inside one. I try to have a healthy lifestyle, but some days are easier than others.
What are you most excited about as the year rolls out?
I’m working on a few projects right now and I’m excited to see where they take me.
