- Tell me your name, youtube channel/username, country
- Tell me which of my makeup looks you've recreated
- Tell me a little about the photoshoot! Eg. Did you enjoy it? What was your inpsiration? Camera used? Models? Props?


(Why a photoshoot? Megs, Summer and I have so much fun each week doing our photoshoots for Frou Frou Magazine and for the videos! The girls have beautiful photos of themselves... and lots of them.... that they wouldn't normally have. How often do you get to take nicely styled pics of yourself?!!! It's a great opportunity to get some decent pics, and at the same time have a great time. The photoshoots I photograph are done cheaply using props from around my house, and fabric backgrounds stuck to the wall! Minimal effort, beautiful result!)
