1. Amanda (US)


Amanda is a senior at The University of Tennessee Majoring in Political Science and Business Administration. While foreign policy is her forte, makeup is her passion – she loves the excitement it brings to her life. The thrill of new products, colours, and collections help her to create various looks and change the whole image of a face. What started her YouTube journey was when she decided to try her first liquid foundation. She didn’t know you could use a liquid foundation with a brush because she thought they were heavy and “cakey” on the face. Little did she know that there was a whole world of BB creams, foundations, and tinted moisturizers out there. She googled “best foundations” and discovered the beauty community on YouTube. She then started recording on her MacBook because she had become obsessed with looking up reviews on products. Next thing you know she was looking for the best eye shadow, concealer, eyeliner etc. … and the rest you can say is history. She has learned so much from other YouTube beauty gurus and she never thought she would be where she is today. She is hoping to work for a beauty company in marketing or product development upon graduation this May.

2. Lindsay Marciniak (Canada)


Lindsay hails from Ontario Canada. She is currently 24 years old and she has an intense passion for makeup. Her makeup obsession started when she was just a little girl, watching her mother put on makeup in her bathroom. Her passion for makeup continued through to high school but really peaked when she discovered the beauty community on YouTube. Once she watched her first makeup related video she was hooked! All she does in her spare time is watch videos on YouTube that are related to makeup, research new makeup techniques and shop for the latest makeup products. Her personal collection has increased dramatically and she has done some freelance work for friends and family. She is hoping to get her makeup artist license in the fall to further pursue her passion for makeup. Some people think that a career in makeup is frivolous, but she truly believes that if you have a passion for something then you can create a career out of it as long as you’re willing to work hard anything is possible.

4. Tina Daffon (US)


Tina was born and raised in the Bay Area. She started her blog and YouTube channel (OfficialStinaD) over a year ago and was overwhelmed with the support she has received so far. She loves sharing her makeup experience with everyone from tips and tricks to products she loves and hates. Makeup helps her express herself in a creative outlet and most of all she has fun doing it. After getting all the love and support from family and friends she finally made the leap into doing Freelance Makeup on the side. She loves meeting new people and learning something new with every gig. After years of experimenting with makeup she has learned to embrace beauty and never mask it.
