They are some of lifeâ€™s eternal mysteries; how can I achieve the perfect winged eyeliner? Why does my blush look like shingles? How can I eat bacon without gaining weight? I am here to help you out with at least two of these niggling dilemmas.
It seems in this high-tech day and age, any girl with a mascara wand and a smart phone thinks she is a beauty blogger, but these professional makeup artists are qualified and experienced. Plus, they share discount codes on wheelbarrow loads of products! Yay!
Â Shannon Harris/Shaaanxo
This quirky New Zealander is not only funny and relatable, but is also the epitome of versatility. From wearable, toned-down neutrals to glamorous and colourful evening looks, Shannon is forever experimenting to land on something unique and fun.
She offers celebrity inspired tutorials as well as her classic â€œwinging itâ€ videos, where not even she knows what the outcome will be. Spoiler: itâ€™s always incredible and super easy to recreate! She also has her own range of amazing false lashes and brushes.
If youâ€™re after an honest opinion on a bajillion different makeup products out there, Shannon is your gal. She always goes the extra mile to educate her viewers on the quality and longevity of products too, such as wearing foundation to the gym and reporting back on its staying power.
This self-proclaimed queen of winged eyeliner is one inspirational woman. Chloe is very mature and takes her art seriously, but still has a giggle along the way. If youâ€™re not down for the cutesy stuff and would like to just get to the point, Chloe is your girl.
