If like millions of people, you’re hooked on YouTube beauty videos, then you’ll probably be familiar with vlogger Fleur de Force. The 27-year-old British blond, who has a whopping 1.3 million subscribers on her channel, knows a thing or two about making your face look flawless. After publishing her book “The Glam Guide” earlier this year, de Force is now teaming up with online beauty retailer feelunique.com to launch her very own makeup line, including lip glosses, eyeshadow palettes and a makeup bag. Yep, it’s the perfect occasion to ask her to spill some of her beauty secrets…
YouTube star Fleur de Force shares her top five beauty products
What was your inspiration for the collection for feelunique.com?
I wanted to create the products I’m always looking for when I try new makeup – my ideal, universally wearable colors in comfortable, premium textures, with an affordable price tag.
Why did you decide to collaborate with this brand?
I’ve shopped at feelunique for years and worked with them a few times over the course of my YouTube career. I think they are the perfect partner because they offer great international shipping and are the online destination for beauty shopping!
What is your favorite item from the collection?
Definitely the lipgloss in Written in the Stars – it’s the perfect daytime color and texture.
What can we find in your makeup bag at the moment?
I’ve just bought the new Too Faced foundation called Born This Way. It has amazing coverage but it’s not matte and it looks really natural.
What about in your beauty cabinet?
I’m currently loving the Simple Micellar water for removing makeup and the Fresh Lotus moisturiser.
What is the skincare product you can’t live without?
I adore First Aid Beauty’s eye cream because it conceals, as well as being a great eye cream. Also, it’s really brightening as it has a pink tint to it.
You have been a successful vlogger for a few years now. Can you imagine a life after YouTube?
That’s such a hard question! I hope I can do YouTube forever, but you never know! I’m always surprised by how much the industry changes every single year, so who knows what the future holds!
