From influential bloggers to entertaining vloggers and stylish insta-glammers, we bring you the people you need to follow online and on social media. This week allow us to introduce Amy Nadine and Kristen Ess of The Beauty Department.
Who are they?
The dynamic duo behind the popular beauty blog is Amy Nadine, who creates all of the make-up tutorials, while Kristen Ess is the hair whizz. Their chalk and cheese backgrounds is what brings the pair closer together.
Amy comes from a political family just outside of Washington DC and loved public service, something that saw her become obsessed with studying faces. “I think faces are the most fascinating and inspiring creations in this world,” she explains, “with all the different eye shapes, lip sizes, skin tones, freckles, noses, cheekbones and expressions… I could go on and on but having faces as canvases for me is what keeps me so in love with what I do!”
On the other side of the spectrum Kristen started experimenting with hair trends and styles when she was 15 and has since become the go-to hair stylist for many a celebrity including Lauren Conrad and Lucy Hale.
The pair are prolific on Pinterest and other forms of social media. In fact, so popular are they at pinning that they were asked to be guest pinners for Target. When it comes to offering inspiration on all things beauty, this duo are unbeatable.
