These are weirdly addictive. I can’t quite figure out why they are so calming.
juicystar07 is Blair, a girl from Texas who makes her own videos.* I recently found out Mia is also a fan, and I’ve convinced Jessie and Alex that she’s great also. There is something weirdly soothing about her videos — watching her put on make-up is so relaxing, and she’s weirdly relatable, despite the fact that we have little to nothing in common. She’s a bit of an internet sensation, so I’m not alone in my interest. Lauren also says I should watch the informational video that comes with the Bare Essential’s make-up kit, because “There’s a lot of swirl, tapping and buffing. I suggest doing something like folding clothes while you do it.” Since folding clothes is basically the most calming activity there is, and I evidently find watching people put on make-up to produce a similar vibe, I guess we can either conclude that a) I secretly wish I was a homemaker or b) magazines are prescriptive for a reason: it’s what people want.
*Her sister Ellie is more my age and has a video channel as well, but for some reason they’re way less appealing. I can’t quite figure out why.
