Picture this: you’re laying in bed after a long day, scrolling through Youtube and watching therapeutic makeup videos. Some of your favourite beauty Youtubers pop up on the Home page, you click the thumbnail of a video and start watching. “Smokey Eye Makeup”, “Daily skincare routine”, “Day to Night Transformation”, “Style Swap”, and the list goes on. If you’re familiar with all the terms that have just been mentioned, face it, you’re a sucker for beauty videos.
Hands up if you love the OG, Michelle Phan.
While we, mere ordinary folk may not be able to replicate the exact makeup style or beauty routine our favourite Youtubers do, we can definitely take our own steps and find various fixes to look great in our own way! Focusing on some of the key areas of beauty, we have put together a list of insights and salon suggestions that you could try out!
Our hair is probably one of the first things that people notice when they first meet us. Hair comes in all lengths, textures, and types and we celebrate them all! If you notice that your favourite Youtubers always have voluminous and luscious hair, chances are, they’ve had it professionally done to a certain extent or, they’ve taken the time to go through the tedious process of doing their hair for every single video. While we don’t have the time for that, we have temporary solutions for a quick fix that will help you in the long run! Check out these places below that offer some great services along with reviews from some of our loyal customers!
