Sam and Nic Chapman are the talented sisters behind Pixiwoo. These UK-based makeup artists have mastered celebrity tutorials. Are you a fan of Gigi Hadid? Learn how she does her makeup from Pixiwoo. Is Kendall Jenner your all-time girl crush? Find out how she masters her everyday look with Pixiwoo. Another thing we love about the Pixiwoo girls is their easy-going approach to makeup.

Pixiwoo’s mantra is makeup doesn’t have to be perfect, and they preach that in their videos, too. And—for a shameless plug—Sam and Nic both love and talk about LiLash and LiBrow in countless videos! Check out Pixiwoo’s channel.
