Based in sunny LA, Lustrelux (A.K.A Katy) brings us the best of U.S cosmetics and beauty tips from across the pond. Based on Youtube, her channel provides tutorials for hair, makeup, skincare, reviews, beauty and clothing hauls and personal vlogs; I think it’s safe to say she’s an all round talent. She shoots such a variety of looks there really is something for everyone, from soft girlie pastels to smoky eyes to vibrant pops of colour, she’s done it all.
Katy’s videos are not only really informative and interesting but also extremely entertaining as her bubbly approach and hilarious outtakes really give you a sense of her personality. She’s also done Q and A sessions and ‘get to know me videos’ and isn’t shy about letting you get to know the real her and giving you a genuine insight to her life. My personal favourite videos are her collaborations with her best friend Desi Perkins, a fellow beauty blogger (who is equally as talented and definitely worth watching). They’ve completed some hilarious attempts at the ‘no mirror’ make up challenge and the ‘not my hands’ make up challenge featuring their husbands John and Steven. More recently she’s embarked on a healthy living journey, snapchatting(lusterlux) daily about her struggles against tough workouts and healthy eating, definitely something that we can all relate to! Her transformation is really something to admire and serves as a great motivation to get in shape.
She also posts her best looks regularly on Instagram and even runs an account on the behalf of her adorable Chihuahua Cockapoo cross, Zoey (apupnamedzoey). Her most recent vlog follows her and her stunning to colleges on their trip to Hawaii with Tarte Cosmetics. They showcase all the brand new Tarte ‘Rainforest of the Sea’ collection and show their support of Tarte’s new ‘Kiss and Makeup anti-bullying campaign. The trip itself looked incredible, not only did they receive the entire new collection, but they were lucky enough to stay un amazing accommodation, zip line through rainforests, race dirt buggies and skydive. If you’re looking for some fresh beauty inspiration, tips and tricks, Lustrelux’s channel really a great place to look. She posts new videos weekly so is always up to date with the latest techniques and trends. The perfect place to go if you’re stuck on how to glam yourself up for a night on the town or how to preen yourself for date night. I highly recommend following her on Snapchat too for regular tips and hilarious updates on her day to day life.
