Our Rising Star for the month of June is Ludmila Raevskaya from Russia! Known as Blush Supreme to her YouTube subscribers, Ludmila considers herself a “makeupholic”. You can find gorgeous makeup and hair tutorials, as well as product reviews, on her channel. Although her tutorials are in Russian, they are very easy to follow and understand. If you’d like to learn more about Ludmila, check out the interview below!
Sigma: How would you describe your signature beauty style?
Ludmila: I try as much as I can to stay classy and girly in everything I do. In my tutorials I show my subscribers that even the most rock’n’roll makeup can look elegant and chic in some ways.
Sigma: What is your favorite Sigma product?
Ludmila: I can’t live without my Sigma E45 because I am a huge fan of blending. It is so easy to blend eye shadow with this soft, tapered brush into the crease without being messy. I also adore the F15 for my foundation, it gives such a light and flawless finish. I am really eager to try the F80, they say it is even better. :)
Sigma: Who is your beauty icon or inspiration?
Ludmila: I love and admire the beauty of Kate Middleton and Blake Lively. They have class and their style is admirable. They are real beauty icons for me, not only because they are pretty and always have perfect makeup and outfits, but also because they seem so alive and positive. This is what I value in people.
The Victoria’s Secret Angels’ style is magical for me – it is amazing how their skin can glow and at the same time how natural and sexy they can be.
Another inspiration for me is totally Camila Coelho from Brazil. Her channel on YouTube (makeupbycamila) is in Portuguese, and since I speak Spanish, I can get the idea of what she is talking about. But frankly, you do not even need to understand her language. Everything she does is clear without words. She is a gorgeous girl, amazing makeup artist and her ideas always get me very excited. She is a total inspiration for me, as well as the tons of people who watch her videos and follow her blog.
Sigma: What beauty trend do you love right now?
Ludmila: There are two of them at the moment. The first one is a fresh face, I actually think that this is THE trend for every summer. Instead of overloading your face with heavy foundation, just use a tinted moisturizer or BB cream. It is a great solution if you want your skin to breathe and at the same time stay flawless. And the second trend of MY summer is a pop of color. I just loooove to add some bright turquoise or emerald color on the lower lash line or add it to the crease and blend it in. For me it is a great way to add color to my everyday life and make myself smile all day long.
Sigma: Have you always been interested in beauty and makeup?
Ludmila: I do not really understand how it happened, but since I was a teenager I always found myself doing my girlfriends’ makeup and giving them different beauty tips. Somehow all this knowledge came to me naturally, little by little. Now I consider myself a makeupholic, if this word even exists. :)
We love this Selena Gomez inspired tutorial she recently created!
