The brush with a 12,000 person waiting list…

Brands that can generate a twelve thousand person waiting list tend to have huge PR budget and work with some of the top marketing minds in retail … this could be for a Hermes bag, the Urban Decay Naked 4 Palette or a New Frozen doll. But instead, twelve thousand people signed up to receive a humble yet beautiful makeup brush created by a YouTube star. Aside from my brush review which will get into full swing a little further below, this story is a heartwarming reminder of the democratization of the internet through social media, and how one talented person’s work can trump big corporations.

 

Wayne Goss is one of the biggest beauty YouTuber’s out there. He is  first and foremost a makeup artist, beauty expert and knows a thing or two about skincare. Wayne also happens to be a lovely friend who regularly makes use of my blotchy, histamine-ravaged face to model in his makeup tutorials (click here to see what I mean lol). Whenever I visit Wayne, I try to steal his makeup  he generously gives me makeup and BRUSHES. ALL OF HIS BRUSHES. I die.

Victoria’s Secret makeup tutorial with Wayne Goss.

This incredibly sexy look is inspired by the bronzed style of makeup worn by the Victoria’s Secret Angels. Most of the products used were by Charlotte Tilbury, which is highly appropriate for this tutorial since Charlotte has been head of makeup at many a Victoria’s Secret catwalk show.

 

Wayne did a really beautiful job and the pièce de résistance products used were Mac eye liner pencil in Coffee, Chanel Illusion D’ombre eyeshadow in New Moon and Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow quad in Golden Goddess. All about the eyes! Love love love.
