In our part 2 of our "30 Over 30" series, 4meglam sat down with The Green Queen of Hong Kong, and had the most amazing and candid interview with Sonlie Figueiras.
Sonalie was featured recently in the Heart for Hustle series, The Busy Woman Project where she shared her views on what drives her, tips for the multi-hyphenate woman and what drives her. She was also a speaker at Veggieworld where she wore 4meglam Lip Duo "Ladies Night Out", a red that got many ladies asking her about the lush matte shade that is super smooth, with refillable packaging.
