of the squillions of beauty YouTuber’s out there, Brittney Lee Saunders stands out from the pack. Sure, she’s got ~flawless~ skills when it comes to makeup and she’s got a cascading mane of glossy blonde locks a Victoria’s Secret model would envy, but it’s her bubbly down-to-earth personality that we love most.
WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER, WHO WERE YOUR INFLUENCERS?
I was a massive Britney Spears fan. I had posters of her everywhere – I think the fact that we had the same name played a huge part in that. I really loved Sophie Monk’s pop group Bardot (I was obsessed with them), and I loved Mandy Moore – her song “Candy” was my jam.
WHO DO YOU THINK HAS GOOD BEAUTY GAME RIGHT NOW?
Let’s be honest, Kylie Jenner is killing it. But she has a team of hair and makeup artists who do her face and hair practically every day. I do feel a bit like everyone is kinda looking the same nowadays. They’re all doing the Kylie Jenner thing and no one is standing out.
IF YOU COULD DO ANY CELEB’S MAKEUP, WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO DO?
I’d almost want to do Kylie’s makeup and make her look horrible coz it’s always so perfect. I’d just want to do it bad once so she could be a hot mess like the rest of us do when we stuff up our makeup!
WHAT PRODUCTS ARE IN YOUR HANDBAG RIGHT NOW?
I always have a lip balm, because I get dry lips. Right now it’s a Blistex one. Also whatever lip colour I’m wearing. I’m not one to carry around my whole makeup kit. YOU’RE KNOWN FOR BEING VERY OPEN WITH SHARING YOUR LIFE – ARE THERE PARTS YOU KEEP TO YOURSELF?
There’s definitely little bits I keep to myself, but I share the majority.
WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS?
Hopefully still doing what I’m doing. I know that what I’m doing has a shelf life, but I’d like to stay in the industry and move onto bigger and better things, so presenting or acting on TV or in film. Definitely something in the entertainment industry I hope.
