Get Familiar: Interview With Youtube Makeup Guru Autumn Estelle
Makeup gurus alike have taken their talents to a far away land.
This land is better known as the land of Youtube. Youtube has been around for about a decade now and has given artists the opportunity to branch out and share their love for something via video. From musicians to makeup artists, the land of youtube has opened doors and allowed people to share their passion with others.
I had the opportunity to sit down with youtube makeup guru Autumn Estelle [click here] to talk none other than beauty because when women get together, that's just what we do. Autumn Estelle is from Maryland and is one hell of a makeup artist [excuse my diction]. We touched on how she fell in love with makeup to her favorite beauty product for the fall. She's such a beautiful soul and in all honesty, she doesn't even need the makeup -- she's gorgeous. Keep scrolling to check out our brief interview below.
Q: How long have you been into makeup?
A: I started doing makeup a little bit in high school, but wasn't really serious until I started college. When I went out I wanted to do more dramatic looks and all I started watching YouTube. I've just been on and off until college and sophomore year of college I realized it was something I really liked to do. I took a class on it and I just got more dedicated. I ran with it after that and that was my thing.
Q: Where or who do you get most of your inspiration from?
A: I get a lot of my inspiration from other youtubers and things I see on pinterest and stuff. Working at Ulta I see all kinds of colors and just seeing things in the store inspires me to do other things.
Q: If you could give one makeup tip to beginners who are just getting introduced to makeup, what would it be?
A: Probably to invest in a good foundation and then everything else can be drugstore, but if you can invest in one thing - invest in a good foundation. It's like the foundation of a house.
Q: Must have makeup item for the fall?
A: It's really hard to choose. Brow gel is my must have. Urban Decay's Brow Tamer.
Q: A bold eye or an amazing pop of color lip?
A: If I go bold on the eye, I go bold on the lip also. Bold always.
Q: Lip liner or eye liner?
A: Eye liner because there are some days when I just can't go 100% on lips and just do chapstick, but I can't not wear eyeliner unless I'm wearing mascara.
Q: One word to describe your taste in makeup.
Q: Favorite makeup item?
A: Lip liner
Q: Favorite brand of makeup?
A: Tarte. I've been really liking Tarte and they have full coverage like I love.
Q: What's one makeup faux pa that drives you crazy?
A: I think when people are trying to just spot conceal and not wear full coverage makeup and they're wearing the wrong color. Not only can I see the spot on your face, but you're wearing the wrong color and you're highlighting it. If you want to cover up something, cover your whole face and go all out or don't.
Autumn Estelle shows us how to achieve the perfect eye for the fall [see above video].
