Being a fearless city girl ourselves, we felt a certain bond with Cindy Diaz even before meeting her. In her bio on her blog, musingsofacitygirl.com, she writes, "Come join me as I break away from the inhabitants of the ivory tower and see where the wind takes me." Her desire to explore outside her bubble and soak up all the different facets of beauty and fashion is what makes her video tutorials so universally appealing. We caught up with Cindy recently over coffee and were struck by two things: 1) Her incredible beauty (talk about flawless skin!), and 2) her poise. She's as professional as she is passionate—and, like us, she loves adventurous makeup.1. What initially drew you to watch makeup tutorials on YouTube? I'd tried following some professional makeup tutorials online, but none of them really worked for me. Most of the videos were too short—you didn't see the makeup application from start to finish. The girls doing YouTube tutorials, however, showed every step of the process. So even though many of them weren't professional makeup artists, I felt I could trust them because they showed everything that led up to the look. The first vlogger I watched was Lauren Luke (panacea81). Then I discovered a few more—RenRen and Amy04 also have great channels. I loved all the detail in their videos.
