That’s the question asked by beauty giant Feel Unique when they launched a nationwide search to find the latest beauty vlogger with that extra something something, the next big thing!
Tasked with filming a potentially life changing minute on your number beauty product, makeup mad beauty junkies entered in the hundreds. After a difficult task of narrowing the shortlist, Feel Unique announced their top four and I was invited to a fabulous event in which they would announce their overall winner.
The theme was enchanted boho chic and after spending more time than I care to admit poring over the Feel Unique Pinterest board, I finally settled on a flowing paisley silk top, my Spectrum Collections Bombshell bag and a whole lot of glitter makeup. So off I headed to the top of the tower, the Skyloft and Millbank Tower for a whole lot of festive fun.
The second I stepped out of the lift on the 28th floor I was greeted with a glitter cocktail and shown to the room that I wish could have been my new home.
Makeup, hair braiding, flower crown and manicure stations were organised to achieve the ultimate festival vibe and when I wasn’t making my own personal gif in the photo booth, there were mini bites and sweet treats galore to keep me partying all day.
It was then on to the main stage where we were introduced to the judges, the iconic makeup artist Daniel Sandler, Youtube Star and owner of My Pale Skin blog, Em Ford and Social Media Manager Megan Gunn.
We also got to see the four finalists and their final videos in which Feel Unique gave them 1 hour to create a festival themed makeup look.

It was great to see some fresh faces from the vlogging world and not just vloggers with huge followings and after staring in awe at the insane talent in each video the winner was announced…
Drum roll please!
(Not sure how to write out a drum role sound so I hope you imagined it in your head)
The winner of Feel Unique’s Tomorrow’s Top Vlogger is Cat Shanu!!
So go check out their channels and social media and get inspired. After all that’s exactly what makeup is for, to experiment and have fun creating different looks!
Finally, Feel Unique provided us with some serious beauty goodies and I just wanted to share my top 3:
Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in Jubilance
I was practically blinded when I opened up this pale pink shimmer eyeshadow. It is stunning!! Almost creamy in texture, it is like seriously pigmented. Seriously. I plan on wearing this all day every day and Illamasqua even say you can use this as a highlight. Ok boss! whatever you say. Any chance to glow is alright by me.
James Read H2O Tan Mist
On the rare occasions we get sun in this country I am always disappointed that I still end up with a pasty face due to wearing some kick-ass makeup (see above), so when I received this clear facial mist I was excited to try it out. After a quick spritz over a freshly cleansed face I was pleasantly surprised to find my face had a gorgeous even tan after just a couple of days. Better yet it has none of that horrible fake tan smell. Stale biscuits? No thank you. This will definitely be making frequent appearances in my beauty regime especially as the months get colder.
#I’mAJetsetter Travel Essentials
I love this teeny weeny little blue bag. It’s like a magic bag where you keep putting your hand in and pulling stuff out with no idea how it all fits in. Inside is:
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream
First Aid Beauty Hydrating Mist
Jetsetter Eye Mask
Yup all that in one nifty little bag that is perfect for travelling. My mum wanted to nab this as soon as she saw it but I need it for our trip to Italy if I’m going to be fresh for all that lounging on my unicorn pool float!
All of these products can of course be found on the Feel Unique website.
