Hi Byron, can you briefly introduce yourself?
I’m Byron Valladares (24), chilean actor and singer. I started doing an artistic make-up course about body painting, theatrical make-up and that stuff but I never thought I would fall in love with make-up so decided to do this for a living and watched a lot of Youtube videos to learn a little bit more then I created my Youtube channel.
How were you inspired to begin your channel? Where did you start?
A friend of mine has a Youtube channel, and she told me to do my own channel about artistic makeup and that kind of stuff. I started filming in my room, with a regular camera and two lights in front of me.
What inspires you and keeps you moving forward? Why are you passionate about it?
I get inspired by absolutely everything, nature, seasons, fashion and of course another makeup artists. Makeup got to me in an unexpected way, I was in a makeup course but I never thought I would love to do this.
“I love the way makeup helps people out to have more confidence, to enhance their natural beauty.”
What’s your favorite aspect of the beauty & cosmetics industry?
I love the way makeup helps people out to have more confidence, to enhance their natural beauty. I like to know that the cosmetics industry is now realizing in how important social media is, that’s why they’re supporting this beauty revolution.
What makes your brand unique from other beauty channels?
I first started doing artistic makeup tutorials on my channel, I think this is why my channel is different from the others because you can watch the creative side of me plus the “beauty” makeup tutorials that everybody loves to watch.
How do you organize/plan out your content?
Inspiration is so important when I film so when I’m inspired I write down all the ideas in my head. Also asked my subscribers to let me know what they want to see. I try to upload two videos a week.
What is your goal for your channel? Dreams?
As any Youtuber I’d like to my channel grow up more and more. I only want to reach people to inspire and help them out showing my art.
“If you love this just do it!”
Do you have any tips for others trying to break into the beauty industry?
Just do it! If you love this just do it!
What are your favorite beauty products or your go-to skincare regimen?
In artistic makeup I like Aqua and Supra colors by Kryolan, I love this brand to do body painting. In beauty makeup I like “face and body” by Mac, I love this product. Urban decay eyeshadows and lipsticks rock!!
What products are you currently using on a daily basis?
I exfoliate my skin twice a week, I use one from Lush, it’s really good and smells delicious. Of course I moisturize my skin with Neutrogena Light cream with SPF of 30, quite good any time of the year and that’s all.
What’s your personal style?
In the beauty side: simplicity, less is more. In the artistic side: More is not enough
How does your personal style influence your branding?
In the quality of my videos I think.
What’s your favorite brand and why?
Becca, but it’s not here in Chile. I love it because it gives the skin a natural glow, I’d love to try out Becca’s highlighters.
