Burr, it's Cold in Here.

You'd have to be living under a rock, or climbing the Himalayas, if you didn't hear about Tanya Burr over the past week or so. Who is she? Well, according to the Daily Mail (yes, I'm incredibly well read), Miss Burr is a 22-year old Youtube sensation specialising in celebrity make-up tutorials, and is such a specialist that she amasses over 2 million Youtube hits per month. 

Want to look like Olivia Palermo? Here you go:

Miranda Kerr in all her Victoria's Secret Angel glory? Look no further:

Some people have complained that she's a one trick pony, that her looks essentially look the same - eyeliner, neutral shades, pink or coral cheeks, pink lips. For me, I say each to their own. Tanya's clearly found her niche and success with taking celebrity/editorial looks and interpreting them her own way, and hey, I certainly don't think I am more skilled than her. I must also give kudos to her willingness to show her bare face, and making quite simple to follow videos. To top it off, she's a fellow pale skinned lady, so I couldn't criticise her (too much) even if I wanted to.

What do you think? Is Tanya your cup of tea?
