YouTube star and Instagram influencer Brittney Lee Saunders is returning home to Brisbane to attend the Primed to Party Beauty Weekend at Indooroopilly Shopping Centre on Saturday 20 October.

With more than one million subscribers on YouTube and 600,000 followers on Instagram, Brittney began with making videos at the tender age of 10 and found the transition to the online community a natural fit for her talents and passions. As to the reasons for her resounding success? She says that her authentic personality is valued by her audience. “I’ve been posting on YouTube for over six years, it was always just a fun hobby of mine and over the years people started tuning in and from there my audience began to grow…  From the feedback my fans give me I think the reason why most of them follow me is because they can relate to me in some way or another,” she said.

Her tenacious Australian spirit and humor are the reasons why many of her YouTube videos have garnered more than a million views with her highest viewed video Australian tries American snacks boasting more than eight million views. Her inspiration for videos are focused on her day-to-day activities although she does try to make videos that her audience will enjoy. “It’s amazing to be self-employed. I worked over 20 jobs from the age of 14 to 21 and never found one I liked. Doing what I do now has enabled me to meet so many amazing people all around the world, and it’s pretty incredible to be able to look back on years of footage from your life.”

Vlogging has opened up new opportunities for her, including her new clothing label, FAYT, and a dedicated following who are sure to come meet her at the Indooroopilly event. “I’ll be doing a Q&A and meet and greet so if you’re in Brissy (or nearby) come along with the girls and enjoy some free champs and chat with me about all things beauty and YouTube.”
