Vlog on and learn from the mas­ters

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Powder Room -

I know there are a lot of you out there who fol­low You Tube make up tu­to­ri­als.

They can be great, but equally there is a lot of rub­bish out there that give bad ad­vice and take you on a merry dance with looks and prod­ucts.

As a pro­fes­sional, I find the good ones very use­ful as a way to keep up with new prod­ucts.

There are so many be­ing re­leased all the time that I’ve found vlog­ging on is the best short­cut to get straight to the good stuff.

I just don’t have the time to browse all the time, so they can do it for me.

I tend to stick to the same Vlog­gers though and have done for a few years. They are all ex­pe­ri­enced make up artists whose opin­ions I value.

Each has their very own style but what I love the most is that they get straight to the point.

I hate noth­ing more than click­ing on a chan­nel, only to be bored to death by the Vlog­ger harp­ing on about her break­fast, home, why she de­cided to style her hair a cer­tain way and what shoes she’s wear­ing.

I don’t care, get to the point. To me that’s what separates the pro’s from the make up“en­thu­si­asts”. So here are my faves: Jor­dan Lib­erty: A pro­fes­sional make up artist who is di­rect, to the point and a fount of knowl­edge.

I’ve dis­cov­ered we love and use a lot of the same prod­ucts which is nice. Most of all, he beau­ti­fies his mod­els and doesn’t buy into the whole“in­sta-makeup”look which just masks the face rather than en­hance it. His chan­nel is in a vis­ually great stu­dio set­ting too.

Lisa Eldridge: Celebrity Make up Artist and a class act in my opin­ion.

If there is any­thing she doesn’t know when it comes to makeup, then it re­ally isn’t worth know­ing.

She keeps her tu­to­ri­als sim­ple, clean and gets straight to the point. No chit chat about rub­bish, just clear steps with a great in­sight into the must-have prod­ucts.

Wayne Goss: A lovely guy who used to work at Bobbi Brown. We have that in com­mon. He chats a lot but does tend to stick to the sub­ject, most of the time. I for­give him though be­cause his knowl­edge about make up tech­niques is fabulous. If you are look­ing for make up ad­vice for your­self and not as a pro­fes­sional, I’d look to Wayne. He cov­ers just about ev­ery­thing. You can scroll through all his video’s and pick what suits you.

Ha­gai Av­dar: A very tal­ented Make up artist and pho­tog­ra­pher. Not for beginners, but just to ob­serve some of his amaz­ing cre­ations, check him out.

I am never done learn­ing. The best make up artists in the world talk of how they con­tinue to learn ev­ery day. Looks, style and prod­ucts change up all the time so I have to keep up. The fab four above cer­tainly help me do that.
