FAQ

What camera do you use to record?
Canon T3i for my beauty channel and the Canon G7x for our daily vlog channel.

What lighting do you use for your videos?
I have two box lights from Amazon and the Diva Ring Light from the DVE Store.

What type of dog is Moo (Pixie)?
Moo is a toy poodle, she weighs 5 pounds. Her real name is Pixie but somehow we started calling her Moo and it just sounded right :)

How tall are you?
I'm only 5'2! Some people say I seem taller in my videos but the truth is I'm just a little shorty. I blame it on the fact I didn't drink a lot of milk when I was young....... nothing to do with genetics :)

What did you use to get that pastel pink in your hair?
Scruples Urban Shock in Pink mixed with conditioner.  I left it in for about 1 hour.
To keep it vibrant, I used the Wen Cleansing Conditioner. That stuff is the BEST for keeping bright colors in your hair, it doesn't lather so it doesn't strip the color out. As soon as I started using normal shampoo, the pink started fading out... you could see it going down the drain in the shower :(

What are your favorite makeup brushes?
I would have to say my all time favorites are Sigma. Especially the F80 FLat Top Kabuki. I use that everyday to apply my foundation and I am IN LOVE with that brush. I can never use anything else. Brushes really make a difference in your application and can really make or break a look, so I recommend investing in brushes that will make your application easy & effortless. If you can't afford to get a big set at one time, just buy one every now and then and start building your collection. They will last you a super duper long time if you take care of them :)

  2. Hi Sam! First of all, I am a BIG fan! I was wondering, if you could do another makeup tutorial with the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2, something natural and you could wear to school. I greatly appreciate it! Thanks so much! :)

    1. Hey - I know I'm not Sam but I just want to let you know that I was in the same boat as you! I have the most sensitive skin as well and I have found that the only foundation that I don't break out (either pimples, or get super itchy skin, or super dry skin and no rashes!) is Estee Lauder (I wear the double wear). You should give it a go. I asked them to pump some into a tester pot for me so I could make sure it was all good and they were fine with it. I hope it works for you!! :)

  6. Hey Sam!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Do another Urban Decay Naked 2 tutorial! I'm kinda stuck in the same natural look that I do everyday. I would love to see what kind of natural look that you would come up with! I loved your pin up look but I dont really wear liquid liner and stuffers. I would really really appreciate it if you would do a full tutorial using the naked 2 palette! Thanks so much! :D

  9. Hey, sorry if this is personal but I was just wondering about the big spots on your chest that look like bruises? I thought it was just the lighting but its in all your videos. Hope you're ok!

    1. I think she said they are burns? Im sure she mentioned it when she did her daily vlogs or possibly one of her old makeup videos that wasn't put back up after she took them all down for a bit. I'm not 100% but I'm sure its something along those lines, she has had them for ages now. Hope this helps!

  12. Oh, Sammy,
    Milk doesn't make you grow taller as a kid, as humans lose their enzyms to digest and use the nutrients in milk after age 5. The Milk Corporation has an advertising loophole, those nutrients are good for you and they technically are in milk, so they can say that, but it's a lie that your body can use it. It's the 100% whole grains and dark green vegetables that will give a kid all the protein and the right vitamins to use the protein to grow. I studied advertising, marketing and dietitian in college.

    Question: F80 from sigma is your favorite, how does it compare to the flat powder brush from ELF. I already have it and its nice -Is the difference worth going out and buying the sigma version?
