5 Fast Facts about beauty YouTuber Sasha Anne

Sasha Anne is known for her makeup transformations and tutorials on her Youtube channel where she recreates a ton of stunning cosplay makeup styles including her most popular, Elsa and Anna from Frozen.

She has also recently created and launched her own line of tiny lip glosses called Teeny Wee and received a Shorty Awards Audience Honor for empowering young women with her Gal Gadot and Wonder Woman inspired makeup video. 

Here’s 5 Fast Facts about Sasha Anne! 

She of course has got a favorite secret beauty hack...

My favorite beauty hack is spraying my beauty blender or brush before blending my foundation. It is an easier and smoother application and I love the effect.

…but sometimes fails at:

Not washing my brushes or beauty blenders enough. I always forget and I also don’t ever have the time or patience so I need to get better at that.

She has dyslexia.

It’s sometimes difficult for me to express myself with words. I know what I want to say in my head but I don’t know how to say it out loud. So it takes me that extra minute to think before I respond. It makes me feel self conscious, since everyone else seems to be speaking and answering so quickly. As a result, people think I’m shy. Writing things out is easier for me. I have more time to think. The good news is that I have learned how to turn my weakness into my strength by finding creative ways to express myself, through makeup, song, and dance.

She’s kinda weird about her coffee.  

I’m very particular about my coffee in the morning. It has to be Dunkin’ Donuts. It has to be iced with skim milk and a French vanilla swirl. And I have postmates deliver it in the morning. This is probably also a “guilty pleasure.”

You can probably relate to her other guilty pleasure.

Being lazy and online shopping… Lol!

July 3rd, I’m celebrating my birthday!

Here’s 5 fast facts about Kolten! 

He’s accustomed to the grind needed to “make it.”

Batman. He has no superpowers but he’s uncommonly strong and very very smart. He wasn’t born a super hero like some of the others but made the choice to do good and protect others. So to me he’s a super hero!

The origin of my last name is _________? Hmmm. Not really sure I’m going to check into that now! 

He showed off a bit too much (literally) while on stage once.

Most embarrassing moment in real life? While performing a hip hop routine, my harem pants came down during a large showcase. Luckily it was towards the end so I just ran off stage!

One food he refuses to eat is: 

Caviar – fish eggs is a no

He loves his new gig.

The best part of being on All That is that I get to go to work every day and laugh.

He doesn’t like when people do a certain thing with a cupcake.

My biggest pet peeve is when people eat all the icing off of a cupcake before they eat it. 

Speaking of cake, he does have one he prefers.

My favorite dessert is a peanut butter and chocolate cake, that is served at a coffee shop near our house.

His Plan B is pretty cool.

I think people would be surprised to know that other than acting, my dream is to be a fashion designer. 

He’s kind of a deep thinker.

My secret fear is not being able to experience everything life has to offer.

5 Fast Facts about dancer BaiYu Fisher

baiyu fisher

BaiYu Fisher is a dancer and self-taught contortionist born in China with albinism and given up by her birth parents. She was adopted by her mom Lisa at age 2 and now lives in Iowa with two brothers, a sister, and her grandmother.

Albinism means a lack of pigment in skin, hair and eyes, and this has left BaiYu legally blind. Despite this, she began gymnastics at age four and dance at age 10, taking classes from recognized names such as
tWitch, Travis Wall, and Mark Meiser. She was also featured in a Telly Award winning documentary about her albinism (scroll down to watch).

She graduated high school at age 16 and will attend Iowa State University on scholarship to study advertising with a minor in dance. Not only that, but she has joined the ranks of Instagram influencers with a small but loyal following.

Here’s 5 Fast Facts about BaiYu!

She’s coming to California this summer.

I’m working on something with Jordan Matter when I go to California this summer. And I would love to work with Famous Birthdays on something.

She’s pretty chill — except for when her mom does ONE annoying thing.

My biggest pet peeve is actually something that happens a lot at home. My mom will call us down saying supper is ready, we go down there and there is no food, like what?! Other than that I don’t get too annoyed by much.

Her fav food is true to her lineage.

The one food I couldn’t live without would be noodles. 

She’s a little salty about one particular issue.

If I met my birth parents I would probably not say anything. They didn’t want me to begin with, why would they want me now?

She uses her albinism as a driving force towards success.

I think albinism has made me the fighter that I am. I am persistent with pretty much everything I do, I won’t quit until it’s accomplished. My goals for the future are to empower young children and show them that even when the world thinks you aren’t good enough, once you find the fire in your soul you can light the world with happiness.

5 Fast Facts with actor Brandon Stewart

Brandon Stewart is an actor, singer and content creator. Lionsgate’s movie “Future World” was his latest film released in theaters starring James Franco and Snoop Dogg. This Summer, Brandon will be returning as a celebrity judge for the second season of the singing competition web series called “Shine.” His new feature film/musical “Moondance” is also set to premiere this year.

Here’s 5 Fast Facts about Brandon!

He’s more than just an actor.

Brandon TV launches this August rolling out numerous web series shows, short films and music videos for our niche audience. After signing with AwesomnessTV, we’re now growing my digital medium into a destination for award-winning content — easily accessible and streamable anytime. The show we decided to lead off with was Shine. We ordered a second season of the web series and brought it to our network. The show did really well on its own platform online and has a nice viewership from last season alone. It was exactly what we’re looking for when deciding what kind of concepts we want to produce. I produced the show in its first season and sat on the panel, but I had no idea it would play a bigger role in the launch of a big digital media conglomerate. My team at AwesomnessTV and partners at Viacom digital studios have big expectations for Brandon TV. We’re hoping to steal a big piece of the market share and make waves in digital entertainment. 

He’s not a fan of wanna-bes.

As a judge, it takes everything in me not to blow when a singer tells me they’ve just up and decided to audition. We’ve had singers stroll in off the street with so much potential, but there’s a spark in singers’ eyes that I look for. I’d say my biggest pet peeve is not seeing the connection. Does this singer really need this? Could they be a real artist? They have to have that fire in their belly and a go-getter attitude. If not, it’s a no from me. I don’t care how talented you think you are. We look for undiscovered gems, not lazy egos. 

He’s got a sweet tooth.

Wow! Curve ball. Okay, I would say my favorite flavor would be a shameless plug for Cold Stone. Their Oreo cream filling ice cream flavor, mixed in with Reese’s and warm brownie bites. Don’t judge me for that one.

Judges Brandon Stewart & Grammy Winner, Ashthon Jones last season.

He’s a total people-person.

I love people. And this business is a people’s business. I get to deal with people every single day whether it’s on the phone, on set for a new project or at a red carpet event. You have to be a people’s person to understand entertainment. Demographics are different around the world and understanding the culture behind why a certain group of people just didn’t like your tv show or film, is an experienced filmmaker. There’s so many great shows that are cancelled after one season. But with this business, being yourself is all you need. I’m thankful to all my loyal and supportive friends I’ve made in this business this far. It’s a special feeling.

His most important advice to other creators is to be consistent.

I always tell people the hardest part about entertainment is the first few years. You meet plenty of snakes. It’s people who don’t have your best interest in mind. You have to ignore them. You have to stand up for yourself, take those learning lessons and grow as an individual. The further you progress in this industry, the higher caliber friends you will meet. It takes longer than usual for people to trust in this industry; and for good reason. I’ve been burned several times. The difference between me and those who gave up? I didn’t let that define me. I never allow negativity to creep into my thinking process. It’s all a journey. There will be ups and downs, but staying consistent is the most important part. Doing that, you earn the respect of the industry’s greats. That’s when you’re playing in the major leagues.

5 Fast Facts about singer Caroline

carolines music

Caroline (@carolines_music) is a young singer-songwriter and entreprenuer who is getting attention for her covers, some of which have millions of views on Instagram.

She’s releasing a lifestyle brand in the beginning of July, has a blog, podcast and works hard to spread much-needed positivity on social media — including working to improve mental health among teens.

Here’s 5 Fast Facts about Caroline!

carolines music

People slide into her DMs…but not for what you think.

I wanted to get involved with mental health because it’s the root of almost every issue in the world but there is so much stigma surrounding it. I’ve gotten a lot of DMs from teens telling me how they are depressed and suicidal. They were DMing me because they have nobody to talk to and are ashamed of their feelings. I did some research and the teen suicide rate is at an all-time high! I want to do everything I can to spread awareness and get the stigma off mental health, so people can get help before it’s too late.

She’s got positive coping mechanisms when she just cannot deal.

When I’m anxious I pray and listen to my favorite music!

She’s got a bunch of cool stuff coming up.

I’m releasing a passion project on July 1st! I’m also recording a lot of new music I’m really excited about and am aiming to have the second season of my podcast out in the end of July!

carolines music

She used to rock with a racquet.

People would be surprised that I used to be a competitive tennis player and would play for hours and hours a day!!

She really, really, really needs hair ties. Ladies can you relate?

I can’t live without hair ties because I have heavy long hair and am constantly needing to put my hair in a ponytail.

Selfie time!
