This part is incomplete - let me know what you want answered, leave a comment!

What inspired you to become a makeup guru?
In the summer of 2008 I came across a video by Lollipop26 (one of my FAVORITES!) and was intrigued by the whole beauty video review process. I started watching her and a few others, and became mildly obsessed. I was bored that summer so I thought, why not? I decided to put up my own video and I started to get subscribers! I just wanted to add my opinions and tricks into the huge world of YouTube, and am very humbled that anyone cares to keep up with me :)

Have you always been girly?
Yes!! Always always! I played in my mama's makeup when I was a tiny little thing - I always thought makeup was so fun. And I never really liked sports or getting dirty, although I do think that it is possible to like both.

Team Edward or Jacob?
Edward in the books, Jacob in the movies. LOVE Taylor :)

Were you home schooled in high school?
Nope! I went to regular school!

Overall Favorite brand?
That is so hard! Mac for color, like eyes/lips/cheeks, but Laura Mercier for skincare and foundation stuff!

How old are you?
21, 22 in May! When I started my YouTube the "21" in my user name was not because of my age.. I was 20 when I started lol!

What kind of music do you like?
I like a little bit of everything, but I do enjoy pop, hip hop, and country :)

Any advice for people wanting to get into YouTube/beauty reviews?
Just try! The hardest part is the first video, and actually putting yourself out there. Just do it! If you hate it, you can take it down and not tell anyone :) You never know, you might be the next big YouTube girl!

Where did you get your two paintings in your background?
The Paris one is from Ballard Designs but I bought it about a year ago so I'm not sure they would be available anymore. The pink one was hand painted by my neighbor.. so again, not really available. Sorry guys! I really adore paintings, I wish I could paint actually. I fell in love with the Paris one the moment I saw it... and I knew I had to have it. It's a happy looking painting.

What is that bright silver thing above your lamp?
A nail stuck in the wall, I had a picture there before I moved my furniture around this year.

Are you a natural blonde?
Yes. I add both lowlights and highlights to my hair to give it dimension, right now its a bit darker than my natural color.

Do you wear colored contacts?
Nope, and I never did! I wore clear ones up until a few days ago when I got LASIK surgery. Read about it here.

Who are your favorite youtubers to watch?
My sister, Juicystar07, thebubblegumprincess, lollipop26, xsparkage, michellephan, fafinettex3, EGheartsssc and like a ton more than I can't think of off the top of my head. I've met them all in person except for elise and erin.

What are your favorite places to shop?
Guess, Express, Bebe, Forever21, Abercrombie, and department stores.

Which TV series do you enjoy?
The Vampire Diaries, True Blood, The Tudors, Desperate Housewives, Keeping up with the Kardashians, The Hills, The City, Glee, Lost.

What's your favorite food EVER?

How do you deal with hater comments?
Hater comments are hard, but everyone gets them, and the bigger you are - the more you get! You just have to learn to tune it out and realize it stems from jealousy. Plus, for every 1 hater there are over 100 (or 1000) fans! It's not worth the time to stress over it.

Where did your username come from?
All That Glitters was my first ever eyeshadow from MAC, but that user name was taken, so I needed a number. I used 21 because I like the number. It was not my age at the time (I was 20) so it has nothing to do with that :)

What's your favortie kind of video to make? (tutorials, hauls, etc.)
All of them! But if I had to pick one... vlogs!

What is your major?
Communications/Law. Believe it or not, I have a serious side.

What kind of a cat is Bear?
Seal Point Himalayan - half Persian, half Siamese. I owned one before him and I will probably always own himmys, they are the best!

Can you speak a any other languge other than english?
No, although I took 4 semesters of French in college.

If you have any more FAQ's leave a comment below! I am blanking right now, lol!

About Me

Hey Everyone! I figured I would do a quick introduction for those of you that don't know me :)

My name is Elle, and I am most known for my YouTube channel,
Allthatglitters21. I am 21 years old, a senior in college, and I absolutely love all things girly. This blog will cover makeup, hair products, reviews, diet tips, beauty tricks - anything and everything that I feel like writing about.

As far as credentials go, I am self taught. I have never worked at a makeup counter or anything, but this is my passion and I love it! I was the beauty intern at Seventeen magazine last summer too, so I learned a lot of stuff there as well, as far as beauty journalism goes.

Feel free to follow my
twitter for my updates, and I hope you enjoy my blog!
