I recently had the honor of meeting The Queen of Blending (Lauren) at a Sephora event here in Arizona. She has been a makeup artist icon of mine since FOREVER! I've been watching her YouTube videos for years and I love her bold use of color, incredible creativity, and flawless technique.
For me it was quite a dream come true to actually meet her in person!
When I first walked up to her and said hello, I think she gave me a compliment- but in my frantic blank mind I think I just stared at her like a creepy stalker!! WAY TO GO COLLEEN! Ugh!! (Sorry Lauren!)
Let me just say that I think she is one of the sweetest, most down to earth, most beautiful, friendliest people ever. She had a way of making everyone feel welcome and like one of her friends.
It was such a cool experience for me to meet her in person after years and years of watching her videos. I've probably watched more of her videos than I have watched actual TV! (That might be a stretch, but it's close!) I consider her to be one of the founding and elite makeup artists on YouTube.
There are many.
But none are quite like The Queen of Blending. :-)
Here are some of the pics from the event. I didn't take too many, but the ones I got I think are priceless!!
I also met some fab friends there too!
This is Sergio and I was drooling over his makeup! Sergio is a makeup artist for MAC over at Arrowhead and my new BFF! If you see him, tell him I said hello!
