Sunday Feature: You Go Girl!

Ive decided that every Sunday I'm going to feature a blogger, artist, photographer, makeup artist or all around awesome person on my blog in a new feature I like to call "You Go Girl!" or in some cases it may even be "You Go Boy!".

This week Ill be featuring Makeup Artist and fellow blogger Anjali Handa. I asked Anjali some questions and this is what she had to say.

So who are you and why are you so fab?
I didn't realize I was "so fab"!!!! I am a Freelance Makeup Artist and Beauty Blogger in the Toronto area. I balance that with a professional career in Corporate Learning and Development. I am addicted to social media, shopping, and anything sweet-tasting :)

Where can we find you on the world wide web?
A few places!
My Blog, "Rock that Look":
Facebook Fan Page: Rock that Look
Twitter: anjali_handa

What one beauty product would you recommend to my readers and why?
MAC Paint Pots. They act as an amazing base to any eyeshadow application - I can apply it at 7am and know that my makeup will still be in tact 12 hours later!

Have you ever lost or broken a beauty item you wish you still had today?
I lost my Denmark lipstick from Vasanti, which was really upsetting considering it's a hot new shade for Spring.Luckily I have received a replacement Denmark - it's still in the box but I can't wait to rock it this season!

You're in a huge rush, what one beauty product do you grab?
Blush. I love the look of a clean face with a touch of blush - it adds a warm glow that defines the face while keeping it natural.

Tattooed makeup, yay or nay?
That's a "nay" for me. I can see how others would use it for corrective measures but I personally couldn't commit to anything permanent on my face.

What are your thoughts on fake eyelashes?
LOVE them! Long lashes are a great way to add a sexy element to the eyes...I love falsies for glamorous evening looks and special occasions!

Your favorite post on your blog is?
Probably my first 'how-to' post with pictures.
I remember it took me so long to get the perfect shots and I was very proud of the way they turned out!

Are there any makeup or beauty faux pas you really really cant stand?
Winged eye-liner for a day-time look. I can appreciate that it creates a sexy cat-eye, however I always feel that it's too heavy for a daytime look - I like to save the Cleopatra eyes for a more formal, evening look.

Do you have a favorite beauty guru?
I don't rely on one source specifically, I like to watch videos from around the world and read a wide range of blogs and magazines. With that being said, I consistently watch MakeupGeek, Fafinettex3, and Kandee Johnson on YouTube!

What can people expect from your blog?
I try to mix it up! You'll find product reviews, makeup application tips, different looks and shopping trips. I'll be adding a few new themes to my blog but you'll have to read and follow it to see what I have in mind!

Was there a product you bought due to blog/youtube/word of mouth hype that you just weren't please with once you tried?
DuWop Lip Venom. I read and heard rave reviews about this lip stain but when I finally tried it, it didn't really set on my lips. Part of that was due to my lip texture at the time, a tad dry and tough, so I am trying to keep them soft and moisturized as the weather changes and will try the product again in a few months. Hopefully it will be worth all the buzz!

Any last words or advice?
True beauty is confidence. Stand tall, keep your head up, and smile frequently :) No beauty product will change your natural features, so embrace them! Use makeup as a tool to enhance your natural beauty, not change it. With the right amount of confidence, you can Rock any Look. Keep that in mind and have fun!

Anjali is amazing at what she does and I highly recommend checking her out ;)

I will be featuring someone different every Sunday so be sue to check back to hear from some more fab people!

Pin It!
