London Face Painters at film premieresNovember 1, 2015
Testimonial from Maida Vale MumsNovember 6, 2015
YouTuber, Blogger, Friend…
Never underestimate the Power of Social Media…meet the new stars of today, ‘The Creators’ adored and followed by millions of teens with stars in their eyes.
A few years ago I had a call from a lone voice requesting for a Facepainter to come and teach Facepainting somewhere near Soho. And that it was for a new YouTube Channel. I felt hesitant, but nevertheless decided to give it a try. Packing a small case I arrived at a tiny studio, a cup of steaming coffee in my free hand.
After an hour’s wait the door opened and out burst a sunny elf like girl called Zoella, (Zoe Snugg), and a tallish geeky boy called Jim. I was ushered into a small room with cameras, videos and lots of lights. Jim had a slightly posh accent, and Zoella was so pretty and sweet. The camera kept rolling and I gave my presentation, and they followed my instructions. I remember asking myself “will they make it or not”?
In 2015, that DailyMix video
has had over 1 million views.
My personal take….and it’s just my opinion and no one else’s…
1. Zoella as a character is very friendly almost like Kylie Minogue from “Neighbors’ and also she is fun. Morgan my eleven year old model absolutely adores her. Her fans seems to be from 11-16. These teens are dreamers and they imagine themselves as Zoella, living in her world, and hanging out in Disneyland and other cool places with cool friends such as Gabby, Alfie, (PiontlessBlog), Tanya, and Louise (Sprinkleofglitter).
2. Zoella comes across as an expert in makeup and dressing up. These are activities that these teens love as they are growing up. Not necessarily a bad thing as long as they are not obsessive.
3. Year 2015 Zoella has
– More followers then Beyoncé and One Direction
-8.5 million subscribers on 2 you tube channels
-3.8 million on Twitter
-6.2 million Instagram
– own beauty range in Superdrug
– estimated income £300,000 a year
At the end it all boils down to doing something you love…..” Follow your passion and give Value and the money will come ”
