Learn about how Brittany turned a little grounding into a lot of followers back in the days when Tom and your top 8 were EVERYTHING and how she discovers her favorite beauty items!
How did you get started? Did you set out to grow your YouTube following or did it come more naturally?
I started my YouTube channel 6 years ago on accident. I was grounded, and decided to spend my time stuck up home making a few videos about makeup. I never knew it was going to grow into was it is today. Social media itself was very different back then, I mean...I still had a Myspace.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start their own blog?
My advice is to just start, and to not care if you get a large following or not.
You're stranded on a deserted island (with WiFi - thank god!) and can only use ONE form of social media - what would be it? Why?
I would use Instagram, because I probably wouldn't look very great stranded on an island, and their filters would save me. The "location" part of instagram would probably save me too.
What are some products you LOVE that you've discovered through social media / people you follow?
Where do you look for inspiration? Any accounts you're crushing on right now?
I look mostly on Instagram and Youtube. I crush on many accounts, but heres a few that popped into my mind... Zoebelleelyse, she's a model, and look's like a little 70's doll, Nataschap, awesome brows & makeup, AnnaBellStyle, super cute & has the best bob I've ever seen....I could go on, but these girls deserve even more of a following.
