DOLLY meets Shani Grimmond

We caught up with YouTube beauty vlogger Shani Grimmond who's touring Australia for Amplify.

Where do you get your beauty inspo?
"I get my beauty inspiration mainly from other YouTubers. YouTube inspires me to keep trying out new beauty products to share with all of my viewers to see if they are worth the hype or not."

If you could only have five beauty products for the rest of your life, what would they be?
"It would have to be my Estee Lauder double wear foundation, MAC pro-long wear concealer, Benefit They’re Real mascara, MAC Spice lipliner and Lime Crime lipstick in the shade coquette. That is my go-to look!"

What made you decide to get into vlogging?
"I think it's quite important to let your viewers in on more of a personal level to see what you get up to on an average day. Vlogging is the perfect way to let your viewers get to know you better!"

Did you ever imagine your channel would become this popular?
"Absolutely not, when I first started my channel I had no idea that I would get to where I am today. I just did it for a little bit of fun."

Do you have a favourite video you’ve made so far?
"My favourite videos of mine would have to be my vlogs. It's always fun to look back and see what I used to get up to and even to see how much I have grew and changed."

How do you keep coming up with ideas for new videos?
"I always ask my viewers what they want to see and they are always full of great ideas! There is just so so many different videos you could film. I also get a lot of inspiration from other YouTube videos."

What is something that is guaranteed to make you laugh?
"Shane Dawson's YouTube video never fail to make me laugh. His sense of humour is amazing and so unique!"

What’s your advice for someone wanting to start a YouTube channel like yours?
"I think the most important thing is to be yourself. Also, make sure you are committed to uploading because no-one wanted to be waiting months for a new video."
