POPSUGAR: What would you say makes you a successful beauty vlogger?
Bethany Mota: I would say just genuinely loving making YouTube videos — when I started, I didn’t really have a plan to be successful! I have such a passion for creating content, and I think that's very important when trying to grow your channel on YouTube. You really have to just love it, otherwise it can feel so much like a job because it is a lot of work, especially if you edit everything yourself like I do. I try to make my videos as unique as I can. Even though they are about beauty and fashion, I like to create storylines. I like to film in really cool locations, add cool music, and just kind of create this vibe that entertains people while I teach them.
PS: What’s your best piece of beauty advice, either that you've given or has been given to you?
BM: That I have ever given? Take your makeup off before bed, because I used to be so bad at it!
PS: I’m still bad it!
BM: I'm still bad at it, too. It's so important because sleeping in your makeup is just so bad. Even if you don’t have time to wash your face, at least just grab a wipe and wash your face off like that. It's good enough if you're tired.
The best beauty advice I've been given I actually heard from Michelle Phan. "Your eyebrows are sisters, not twins." I love this because growing up, I was always like, "They're not even!"
