So, I have an unexpected day off today, I'm supposed to be on a shoot near the South coast of England but it got postponed due to bad weather. It was a great job but I have to say, I'm thrilled to have a suprise day off. As it's such a gloomy Wednesday here in London I thought I'd share a little light hearted fun with you all. I'm often asked who my favourite YouTuber is and, thanks to hairdresser Sam McKnight, who sent me an email a couple of weeks ago with the words 'I know you are going to love this!', I have been glued ever since. Angie Castellano is a brilliantly eccentric and absolutely hilarious New York character created by Maria Cyza. Seriously, this genius woman should have a regular slot as the resident 'beauty guru' on Saturday Night Live! I've been watching her videos on repeat in-between jobs, book signing events and even walking to the studio and they never fail to put a huge smile on my face - I've also got everyone at the #HouseofEldridge and all of my friends and family addicted to her tutorials ; )
I absolutely love Angie's 'calm down' and 'watch me' catchphrases (we are all paraphrasing her at my studio now) and hilariously laid-back approach to makeup. We share the same philosophy that makeup should be fun and not too difficult to achieve... or as Ang would put it, 'stop with de tricks people!' She also loves 'fast walking', which I do too. Angie, you and I are meant to be together - can we do a collab pleeeease????
If you've got five minutes spare and fancy a giggle, you must watch the two videos below (and you can find her other films on her YouTube channel here) - I hope you love this genius character as much as I do.
