If you don’t know who Laura Sanchez is, you might just be living under a rock. Last month, she was awarded the title of Beauty Vlogger of the Year after winning the NYX Face Awards. Over a series of several challenges, Sanchez showed off her transformation skills, offering up amazing takes on anime, fantasy characters and even live paintings.
Sanchez is also known for her more subdued, everyday looks and beauty tutorials. Girl knows how to flick a winged liner and rock a beautiful fuchsia lip. We spoke to her about her win and got a peak inside her makeup bag.
ipsyOS: Congratulations on your win. How are you feeling?
Winning the title of Beauty Vlogger of the Year is a big deal and I’m very proud of it. I learned so much from this experience doing things that I didn’t even know I was able to do before. I’m sure this is also a great opportunity to get my work out there and also start building my English audience. I’m very lucky that I get to be a apart of a brand that I have always loved and NYX made me feel so welcome since day one, plus I made five beautiful and talented new friends that also love sharing makeup and beauty with the world.
ipsyOS: What’s your “Desert Island” product, the one you can’t live without?
LS: Naked Skin One and done by Urban Decay. It’s a lightweight foundation, looks very natural on the skin and it hydrates and protects your skin from the sun.
ipsyOS: Favorite splurge?
LS: I have some Dior foundations and Bobbi Brown powders but I don’t think I spend a lot of money on makeup. I did buy a set of brushes for more than $300. They are the Artis brushes. I love them for face products, but not so much for eyes.
IpsyOS: Is your bag bursting at the seams or do you keep a tightly edited collection?
LS: When I travel, 50% of my luggage is filled with makeup. I just can’t decide what to bring so I pack everything that I like!
