First Look Fridays Interview Series: Beauty Blogger & Vlogger Samantha March

You know those people who are so freaking incredible at doing makeup that you're just left feeling awe and wonder every time you see one of their finished looks? That's Samantha March. I first discovered her through an Instagram pod I was part of, and I was immediately struck by how perfectly she applies makeup -- her eye looks are always especially on point! Her videos are fun and full of personality, and her aptitude for makeup application really is unparalleled. I simply had to interview her so you could learn more about her! Read on to find out Samantha's introduction into the world of beauty, the lip product she can't live without and so much more.

Can you tell me a bit about yourself?
I currently live in Iowa, and came to the Des Moines area to attend a business college. I ended up meeting my husband there, and we now live in the burbs with our Vizsla, Aries. I’m also an avid sports fan, always cheering on the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Cubs!

How did you first become interested in beauty, and what led you to become a beauty blogger and vlogger?
I have always been interested in beauty, and I think I can thank my grandmother for that. My cousins and I would always go through her makeup collection as young girls, and she would explain patiently what each item did and give us identical beauty marks each night we stayed with her. I started blogging in 2009 about all of my interests -- beauty, books, fitness and even celebrities. When my blog slowly became almost solely about books, I took to Youtube to find an outlet for beauty.

What are your top 5 beauty essentials and why?

1) Good skincare is key. Moisturizer and eye creams are essentials for me.

2) Eyeliner. I cannot leave the house without eyeliner, or else I feel I look way too young.

3) A nude lip. I feel most confident rocking a nude!

4) Nail polish. My real nails are atrocious.

5) A good concealer. I cannot be caught without a concealer on!

What are your top 3 beauty tips?

1) Never sleep in your makeup. My grandmother also taught me that from a very young age.

2) Find your makeup vibes and stick to them, even if they aren’t on trend or like everyone else. You will feel most confident when you love your look.

3) Invest in good skincare that works for you. Good skin is key for a good makeup day.

What is the most rewarding part of what you do?
Definitely the most rewarding part is meeting and become friends with people all over the world, even if it’s only ever virtually. It’s been amazing.

Being a beauty blogger and vlogger must be fun, but what do you do in your spare time?
In addition to being a vlogger, I am also a published author. I am just about to write "The End" on the first draft of my sixth novel, so that keeps me pretty busy. Otherwise, you’ll typically find me playing with my dog, working out or eating ice cream.

How can The Beauty of Life readers find you on social media?
You can find me on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Amazon and my blog.
