Find out a little bit more about on-the-rise beauty blogger and vlogger BeautyChaoticLive.
B: What inspired you to start your own YouTube beauty channel and beauty blog?
Funnily enough, it came about as the result of a broken heart. It was about a year and a half ago, and I had just been through a really bad breakup. I needed a project to keep my mind off things and went through several ideas before a friend suggested I start my own beauty blog. I was known as the go-to beauty person to all my friends and co-workers, so it just made sense. It’s kind of funny to think that something I thought was the end of the world, opened up a whole new one for me!
B: Who are your favorite guru’s and why?
Oh my, this could take a while! Of course, I love Panacea81 because she opened the doors for girls like me who had nothing more than a drawer full of make-up and a video camera. To see where she started and how far she’s come is really inspiring, and it gives me the will to keep pressing forward, even on days when I’m feeling discouraged.
I also love Kandee Johnson for ooooh so many reasons! I just love her makeup looks, and she’s so much fun to watch. She’s also a huge inspiration because she’s been through so much, yet she continues to do what she loves and smile about it! And did I mention I love her dancing? Anyone who can look that gorgeous while doing the robot is awesome in my book!
Another fave is goluckygirl1, she’s just amazing! I love watching her tutorials because her looks are so vibrant and she uses lots of glitter. I always find myself waiting for her next video because I can’t wait to see what she’ll come up with next!
B: What are your top three favorite products and why?
Right now I’m absolutely in love with the Two Faced Natural Eye Kit. I seriously use it every single day! The entire palette is amazing, but my favorite colors to use are Silk Teddy, Honey Pot and Cocoa Puff. They create the perfect smoky eye look that can be worn to the office, and out for drinks after work. Or in my case, A LOT of drinks! Wait, my mom is reading this. I mean, um, it looks really great when I go to my knitting club after work. Where I knit quietly and sip tea. Ya, that works…
I also love MAC Dazzleglass. Okay—it’s more than love. I’m completely obsessed! I have an entire drawer full in my apartment, but the one I use most is Moth To Flame. It’s a super sparkly, champagne color with loads of sparkle. I generally wear it over MAC lipstick in Sandy B, or all by itself if I’m trying to keep it low key. Satsuma Body Butter by The Body Shop is easily my favorite beauty product of all time though. I worked at The Body Shop for a bit while I was in college, and I got majorly hooked on this stuff. Not only is it the best moisturizer ever, but it smells amazing! I use it every morning when I get out of the shower, and I get tons of compliments throughout the day on how I smell. Mostly from myself, but still.
