When it's this time of year, the number of Christmas parties and office parties is insane- for some people it can almost be a nightly occurrence! It can be a total mare battling rush hour traffic on the way home to get ready, so it's generally far easier to just stay on at work and get ready there. As long as you have a few key products (don't forget your makeup brushes!), it's super easy to transform your makeup look from office-appropriate to PARTY TIME. Read on to find out how- and remember to apply your makeup in good lighting...not on the way to the function in the back of a dark cab. Things could get crazy far sooner than you intended.
I have been on the edge of my seat waiting to share this Q&A with you guys this...and it's been a LONG week trying to refrain from posting it early! Samantha Ravndahl from Batalash is hands down one of my favourite YouTube beauty gurus- her talent is crazy good, and her candid, down to earth personality is completely refreshing. Girl has sass. Talking to Samantha has been such a pleasure, and if you haven't subscribed to her on YouTube or checked out her blog, I insist you do- asap! Major love for this girl, she is just so damn cool.
I hardly need to introduce these two babes, really, but for the uninitiated, they're Pixiwoo- 2 sisters who are easily among the most famous and successful beauty gurus on YouTube. I'm still in a complete state of shock that I got to interview Sam and Nic, because not only are they my idols, but they're so busy! They've just gotten back from a Real Techniques tour in Chicago, as well as attending Cosmoprof (similar to IMATS) in Bologna, Italy. Considering that Sam and Nic also film tutorials several times a week (https://www.youtube.com/user/pixiwoo), update their blog (http://www.pixiwoo.com/), edit their digital magazine (http://www.two-magazine.com/) and hold 5 day Pixiwoo Makeup Courses- they're AMAZING, and I envy their time management skills.
I could talk all day about how gorgeous and brilliant they are, but I really just want you to read about them, so here they are- enjoy! xxx
