Ever followed a smoky eye tutorial, only to come out looking like a panda? Don’t worry, we’ve all done that, and more. Shaved off eyebrows, dyed our hair the wrong colour, and cut our bangs too short. Hair and make-up is tricky business! Yet there are those who make it look so easy!

Here are the details of our super fun conversation.
