Makeup artists to follow on Periscope

Saturday, 4 June 2016

Have you tried/heard of Periscope? If you don't know much about it, it's an app that lets people broadcast live from anywhere in the world. You follow people and then get alerted when they are streaming live (aka scoping). You can then interact with the person scoping - ask questions, join in their conversation or tap the screen to make very cute little heart bubbles appear to show that you like what they're saying.

But what I've found Periscope so incredibly useful for is watching the scopes with some of the top makeup artists. Sometimes they focus on a particular topic, for example, the contents of their pro kit, what rates to charge, how to deal with difficult clients, but sometimes (and this is gold) they scope themselves doing makeup on clients. Which means you get to see their technique up close. Invaluable!

I have learned so much from these artists so wanted to share some of my favourites with you:
