Meet Caitlin; the 18-year-old makeup maven behind the increasingly popular YouTube channel, Glamourista16. While surfing the web one rainy day on vacation, Caitlin (16 at the time), discovered the massive amount of beauty tutorials and product reviews amongst YouTube. Her fascination was instantly sparked and it wasn’t long after that Glamourista16 was born. Caitlin currently boasts more than 70,000 YouTube subscribers with an audience comprised of females ranging in ages 14-22.
This fresh-faced beauty vlogger was an obvious choice for Sigma Beauty’s latest product launch, the Spa Solutions Kit. Check out a few behind-the-scenes photos in addition to a short interview with this charming cover girl!
Sigma Beauty: Describe your experience at the Sigma Beauty photo shoot.
Glamourista16: I had the best time! First, Shauna (the marketing manager) gave me a tour of the Sigma Beauty office. It was really cool to see all the products and where they are stored and sent out from. After the tour, Bria, the makeup artist and hair stylist (who is incredibly talented!), did my hair and makeup and we were ready to shoot! It was really easy to be comfortable as everyone was so fun... and I got to wear a comfy robe!
Sigma Beauty: What did you like best about participating in a collaboration with Sigma?
Glamourista16: The best part was that I was able to participate in a shoot with one of my all time favorite beauty companies! I use Sigma Beauty makeup brushes every single day to achieve my makeup looks, as well as when I'm doing friend's makeup for events. It was definitely a huge honor to be asked to collaborate!
Sigma Beauty: What are your three favorite Sigma Beauty products?
- Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki (F80) - Best foundation brush EVER!
- Tapered Blending Brush (E35) - I can't find a brush that applies shadow in the crease more flawlessly!
- Cleansing & Polishing Tool - A necessity for keeping my skin clear and removing all makeup left over on my skin
Glamourista16: If you are passionate about beauty and willing to commit time and effort into a channel, then I say do it, do it, do it! The YouTube community is constantly growing with talented beauty fanatics! It's the best place to make lifelong friends and collaborate with others who share that interest!
Sigma Beauty: Who are your some of your favorite beauty gurus or makeup artists?
Glamourista16: Petrilude never fails to amaze me; I always look forward to October when he creates the most unique and elaborate Halloween looks! I could also watch MakeupByTiffanyD all day as well. Her makeup tutorials always turn out flawlessly and inspire me to experiment with all sorts of colors!
Sigma Beauty: What’s the best beauty tip you’ve ever received?
Glamourista16: Use a cotton swab in a swirling motion to remove mascara that accidentally got on your eye shadow; it picks it up without ruining the shadows so you don't have to completely start over!
