5 things with beauty vlogger Tess Christine
  • Girls' Life: What’s your personal beauty philosophy?
  • Tess Christine: Never overdo anything. It’s fun to do a look inspired by a celeb, but it’s always important to stay true to what you enjoy. If you really like something, then stick with that.
  • Girls' Life: What’s your favorite place to score your beauty buys?
  • Tess Christine: Lots of places. I really like Target…and Sephora! Sephora lets you try everything out, which is awesome.
  • Girls' Life: What’s your personal style like?
  • Tess Christine: I mix it up a lot. Some days I’m really edgy with leather jackets, some days I’m really girly—or girly with an edgy vibe. I like mixing florals and chiffon with edgy accessories.
  • Girls' Life: What’s your favorite thing about running a vlog?
  • Tess Christine: The viewers. I would never do it without the people who get excited when I post a video.
  • Girls' Life: You’re a celeb on YouTube. Are you one at school, too?
  • Tess Christine: [Being famous on YouTube] is a new concept to people. All of my friends are very supportive and think it’s really cool.
