Adios 2020 — we’re exploring the Art of the Pivot (because God LOLs at plans). Zuri gets personal and reveals the “idealized” career path she pivoted away from (you’ll never guess) — and the joy of checking your ego so life can carve an unexpectedly awesome thing out for you. Z also goes one-on-one with Deepica Mutyala, CEO + founder of beauty brand, ‘Live Tinted’. And make sure you stay ‘til the end for our exclusive Giveaway + this week’s ‘Party Trick’: 7 Signs You Are Ready For A Work-Life Pivot.

During our chat, Deepica opens about what it took to build her beauty brand; owning what made her different, instead of being ashamed of it; the life-changing moments that made her decide to pivot, and how she pulled the moves off. From turning 30 (and gasp! not being married, with 3 kids — the horror!), to the trials of dating in a global pandemic, and Deepica gets vulnerable about her egg freezing journey. We're diving deep y’all! Let’s go! xx


Deepica Mutyala is the founder & CEO of Live Tinted and a renowned South Asian American beauty entrepreneur on a mission to champion multicultural beauty through community, conversation, and products. Mutyala aims to dismantle colorism with the collective voices and power of the Live Tinted community. Deepica currently resides in Sugar Land, TX. Live Tinted has been recognized in today’s top business and beauty awards, including ELLE Future of Beauty, Allure Best of Beauty, The Oprah O-wards, and more.
