Confessions of a YouTube Makeup Guru: AllThatGlitters21

I honestly don’t really know how that happened. I suppose every makeup guru on YouTube would say the same thing – that they never expected to get where they are today! My subscribers and viewers are what make it fun though, and I learn from them as much as they learn from me. I do this for fun, and I don’t take myself too seriously. I do not pretend to be a professional, or better than any one of my viewers. Continue Reading

Confessions of a YouTube Makeup Guru: MakeupbyTiffanyD

I'm a teacher at heart and LOVE explaining things to others and knowing that I've helped someone. I've always loved makeup and had always loved doing it on other people and talking about beauty and trying new products. I'd be doing my makeup and discover an awesome combination or trick or I would find an amazing product and have no one to share it with! YouTube was seriously the perfect place for me. Now I can share it with thousands! I never imagined a fun hobby would open so many doors and become what it has for me. Continue Reading

Its not really celebrities or models or other images from the media - its more people that you see on the street or in shops. I love people-watching and get inspiration from how someone is wearing a particular item of clothing that I may have seen in a shop or how they have worn their makeup. That's more attainable to me so maybe that's why I find it more inspiring. Continue Reading

Before YouTube, I had tunnel vision when it came to using certain products. I wouldn't even look at anything in a drugstore and barely knew what Sephora was. Watching different gurus really opened my eyes to trying new products.I've also met sooo many wonderful people from there too! Continue Reading

My mom was a professional makeup artist for years before I was born and a few after so my house was always filled with her bright 80’s makeup and testers and things from her kit. I would always play with it and I started wearing makeup everyday when I was 11 or 12. I also put lipstick on my cat when I was 3. Continue Reading

"I think it has made me learn more about myself and how to present myself. Also I think that its helped me grow and learn more about makeup and the purpose for it- not just to look pretty but to enhance certain things on my face and stuff like that! I'm going to be going into Cosmetology after I graduate and I really think that the beauty community is going to help me succeed with my career." Continue Reading

I honestly just try to let all the negativity roll off my back, I get that everyone’s entitled to their own opinions and there will always be people who don’t like what I do or something about me. I know some people get personally offended by rude, negative or mean comments, but I just don’t respond or give them the time of day because I don’t know these people in real life, nor do they know me so their bad opinions of me really don’t matter. Continue Reading

Confessions of a YouTube Makeup Guru: Maggie From FRESHtodeathmakeup

My first love will always be fashion so I look to the runway every season for fashion inspiration. There's no way I could afford any of it so I try my best to take inspiration from designers and lines like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen and Marc Jacobs. For beauty, I love looking at editorial makeup, but YouTube gurus have seriously contributed to my makeup addiction - here's looking at you, Petrilude. Continue Reading

Tales of a Beauty Blogger: Frappelattes

I created Frappelattes on a whim in June 2007. I've always loved giving beauty and fashion tips and forecasts. I had no idea then that it would have provided me so many opportunities or introduced me to so many other fabulous bloggers! Frappelattes was and is truly a blessing for me. Continue Reading

I see makeup as another form of expressing your individuality and style. It can’t hurt you nor change you as a person but if it can give you that little ounce of confidence to take on the world, then embrace it. You can take it as far as you like in terms of boldness, but always remember that it can be easily washed off with just a little makeup remover so why not have fun with it. Continue Reading
