From the Start

Sitting, with phone in my hand browsing through Instagram stories like I have all the time in the world I decide to approach a few of the big names in Makeup/Blogging and YouTube.  Come on whats wrong with that? 

Absolutely nothing, I mean all I wanted was to ask them a few questions to learn a bit more about these people etc and gain more knowledge.  Now not thinking for one moment these guys were going to reply right?? I mean come on these guys are huge in the states and here’s little me in Jarrow, UK.  Well the emails went out and honestly within 15 minutes I think it was BOOM a response from Laura Lee – Yes that is right your eyes aren’t deceiving you Laura Lee.

She was so quick to respond and couldn’t believe it when she agreed to do this, and in her own words she said she wanted to “help others”.  I emailed her over 10 questions and within 24 hours I had her replies.

A little bit about Laura Lee

As most of you will know if your constantly obsessing over makeup as much as me.  Laura Lee has a great YouTube channel full of tips and tricks and makeup looks to die for. And of course she is very stunning!! An Alabama Born girl who currently lives in LA with her husband and of course her cats!!  Laura’s beauty journey began in 2012.

Laura has recently brought out a palette called Cat’s Pajamas which is a cruelty free and vegan free pallete with a mix of shimmer colours and matte but be quick it’s nearly sold out if you want it I believe. Also you will find fashion items for sale too including tees caps and hoodies.  She has also done a palette with Violet Voss in the past too and has a great following over social media.  You can follow her blog posts here
