Paris Project: MakeupbyTiffanyD


Tiffany, or better known as her YouTube name, "MakeupbyTiffanyD," is a 27-year-old beauty guru, blogger and self-taught makeup artist from Atlanta, Georgia. Her style can be characterized as classic and glamorous, however, she says she is definitely not trendy for the sake of being trendy.   

Tiffany has been referred to as one of the most relate-able gurus in the YouTube beauty community. She prides herself on creating videos and sharing beauty advice for a wide range of women; young teens to those in their 50s and beyond. "Applying makeup a certain way or having particular features doesn’t make you beautiful. True, memorable beauty comes from being genuine, happy, confident, and presenting yourself in a way that makes you, you." 

Tiffany has been fortunate enough to travel overseas and all over the United States working with many of the beauty companies she has admired for years. Her most memorable experience was her photo shoot at the Eiffel Tower in Paris for the Paris Makeup Palette project with Sigma Beauty.

Becoming a well-known guru has been very rewarding on many levels for this beauty expert. “Meeting my fans face-to-face at events like IMATS and meet-ups, and even just around my hometown in everyday life is a great feeling. Having people tell me that my videos have helped them learn how to apply makeup because they never had someone to show them how, or that I helped them through a difficult time just by bringing a smile to their face and providing a few minutes of escape through videos -- it's those types of things make everything worth it.”

Sigma Beauty: What was the most rewarding part about your trip to Paris?
Tiffany: The experience itself. Being able to travel somewhere I always dreamed of going and leaving the city knowing we had been inspired to create something we can always keep to remind us of the experience.

Sigma Beauty: What did you like best about the city itself?
Tiffany: Just the feeling of being there and seeing things that had so much history. Famous places I had seen in movies and learned about all my life were around every corner. The feeling that every place and every building had a story and meant something.  It was incredibly beautiful and such an indescribable feeling.

Sigma Beauty: What did you learn from this experience/collaboration with Sigma?
Tiffany: That several individuals can come together with different styles and gather inspiration from one city to create something that naturally "works".  I was amazed at how although we all had our own eye shadow colors that were very independently created with our own personal preferences, they all formed such a beautiful final product that really made sense when it all came together in the end.  On the other hand, where the face colors were concerned, we were all very hands-on in creating that together. Seeing all of our preferences and opinions directly reflected in the final product of those shades was great. The finished product is something we can always be proud of creating together.

Sigma Beauty: What was it like to learn about the process of how a makeup palette and eye shadow colors are created?
Tiffany: I knew it was hard work where the actual production was concerned, but actually seeing what it's like to make the final decisions and make changes to samples until everything was perfect was really fun. It's exciting to see my actual shade come to life and to see everyone's ideas we discussed come to life as actual eye shadows of the exact shade we each dreamed up in the final product.

Sigma Beauty: What is your favorite way to wear the eye shadow color that you created?
Tiffany: My shade is so dramatic yet versatile. I love that there are endless ways to create looks with it. However, my favorite way to w ear it is what I describe as a "Parisian smokey eye," using the shade to create lots of drama around the eye for a really classic yet fun look.

  20. Hello, I am Deltrice. This was a beautiful article about Tiffany. I am 68 years young and thoroughly enjoy watching this beautiful young woman. She has taught me many things about makeup that I have taught to my grand-daughters. I once even went to a plastic surgeon for a consultation on how to get Tiffany's beautiful lips, and he told me, unfortunately, they are just naturally beautiful! I believe we are kindred spirits, she and I. She has an old soul. I will be purchasing this palette for myself and my 6 grand and great-grand-daughters when my social security check arrives. Beautiful, thank you for posting this pretty woman.

  21. I've been waiting all week for this palette to come out and bought it instantly when I saw it was available! (Now I just have to wait for the Dry N Shape system to be back in stock!)

    Congrats to Tiffany on this opportunity and thanks Sigma for a lovely palette! :D

  22. Deltrice, I also went to a plastic surgeon's office for a consult and I brought a picture of Tiffany to reference. I would die to be a pretty lady and have her puckered lips and hill-like nose. Such beautiful and graceful features. She is one of my favorite beauty guru's and I always turn to her for the best deals at Sephora, Target and to see what Chick-fil-a has to offer. She always knows the latest fashions like coral skinny tight jeans. She truly is an inspiration and her dog Waylon is so cute!!

  32. The palette is soooo amazingly beautiful!! I love the idea behind it the design of the box and pretty much everything. I ordered this palette after like 10 second of her video. Can't wait to get my hands on it ;)

  33. I am so excited to get my palette soon. I ordered it the minute I saw Tiffany's video. I think all the colors are just stunning. The blue ones are definitely out of my comfort zone, but it's never too late to try new looks. I can't wait to get it!!!

  34. i saw the palette and loved it but after i watched her video i was sold. i can already tell from watching a few videos that she's going to be my favorite guru on youtube. i can't wait to order this palette and try it out.

  35. I can't remember where I heard about it first; I think it was when Tiffany was just saying generally she was working on a project w/ Sigma and other YouTube makeup Guru's... But as soon as I saw the email about it from Sigma, I ran to YouTube to see what Tiffany had to say about it... LOL Then I made my purchase as her video was playing... (afraid it might sell out!) when i get it if I LOVE it the way I think I will, I may order a backup if they are still in stock :) I love Tiffany and she is where I learned about Sigma in the first place! I had a bad experience with the customer service though with my first purchase, but after a while I decided to give it one more chance since the products were good; and thank God the 2nd and 3rd and etc... purchases have been smoother and haven't had to contact them... So overall I am quite satisfied with the products, obviously cause I keep coming back :) So im giving Sigma the benefit of the doubt and gonna call the bad experience/first impression a fluke... So Thanks Sigma for quality and wonderful products, please keep them coming :) As I am now addicted! And thanks Tiffany for being you!

  36. I got my palette today and I can honestly say it's even better than I expected. I wasn't really excited for the blushes, but as it turns out, they are both really wearable shades and the highlighter is gorgeous!!! The eye shadows are really beautiful and I don't have any other colors like them so I am really happy with them. Plus you get two really great brushes AND a free gift....amazing!
    Great job sigma!!!! I will be back.

  38. I've been inspired by Tiffany so much over the last few months. I've completely changed the way I do my makeup and have purchased lots of new items based on her recommendations. She has made such a difference to my beauty regime. People have started to notice and say how good I look. Thank you Tiffany.

  40. The moment I saw her video I knew I had to buy it, her tutorial was the best one so far. It was my first online purchase ever since I live in Brasil and things here tend to be a little hard to be bought! From the comments I`ve seen here I know I will love it!

  41. I have to say I love sigma and tiffanyd is my favorite beauty blogger. I don't usually buy limited edition makeup because when you run out then there's no way to get a refill, so I usually avoid limited edition but I made an exception because I love sigma and the colors in the palette looked amazing especially the color 'Louvre' ... I was however disappointed that the Eiffel shade is exactly the same as the shade 'shine' from the sigma bare palette. They look a little different when swatched, one has more of a deep blue tone and the other a black tone but once you apply it, they are exactly the same.
    I actually commented this in Tiffany's video but my comment was removed without a response :( that was also disppointing.
