watch and learn.

With a weekday job, I have very little time to take courses and learn from other artists. 

Thank goodness for YouTube. 

Within the beauty world, it is a controversial topic. Some people swear by YouTube gurus, others are strictly against it all together. There is so much information out there, and much of it just blatantly wrong or not well enough explained. So much factors into makeup application. 

'The makeup you study is the work you eventually create.' {a loose quote from the intelligent and talented Sonia Rosselli.}

When I read the above message, it really struck me. While I also often learn what not to do by watching people, more often what we study is who we become. 

I started really diving into my artistry in 2009 with a love for eyes and all things colorful. The artists I watched at that time reflected these loves. Despite my transition into more natural beauty, I learned many techniques that I continue to use due to the endless hours spent watching and practicing. 

Now-a-days my time on YouTube is spent at the gym while doing cardio, and my recent favorite artists are all British. Below you will find some of my favorite videos from Charlotte Tilbury, Lisa Eldridge, the Pixiwoo sisters, and Wayne Goss.
