Who is Natalie Boucher?
21 year old Natalie Boucher is a make-up lover, beauty guru and all round mega babe. After shooting to Youtube fame almost a year ago, she just keeps on getting better. Thanks to her “How to get Big Boobs” contour video spreading like wildfire (yep, she went viral… over 5 and a half million views!!), Natalie has become an Australian Youtube sensation. Her down to earth personality, honest opinions and phenomenal make-up tutorials are just some of the reasons we love her. In 2016, she worked with NXY Australia, Benefit and Australis (just to name a few) and she did all of this while studying to become a nurse!! Her love for life and passion for make-up shines through every video and instagram picture posted, and we can’t wait to see more of Natalie in 2017.

A Quick Question&Answer
Q: What made you launch your Youtube/Instagram page?
N: I started my Youtube channel at the end of 2015 after years of considering it. I had been inspired by many youtubers for so many years and I had been working as a makeup artist for 5 years. I thought I could do it but I had a lot of self doubt; I didn’t have any of the fancy equipment that big youtubers had, I had no idea how to edit videos and I really didn’t think I was anything special but I just wanted to be apart of something. After months of considering it, my boyfriend actually gave me the final push to do it. He said “What’s the worst that can happen? You either do it and love it and maybe something comes from it and if you don’t like it you can stop and at least you can say you tried.” So I tried it and loved it! I ended up really enjoying the creative process and I loved the production side of it as well. It’s just so fun to engage with your viewers and be apart of an amazing, supportive community.
Q: What is your current go-to make up product?
N: This is a tough one! It’s a tie between the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil in shade 3 or the NYX lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks. I just love the way they feel on the lips (SO comfortable!) OHHH and I love the Sienna False lashes from Glam By Manicare! These are my go-to lashes, and Loving Tan for nice Bronzey skin!
Q: Who are your biggest beauty influencers?
N: I think I am Desi Perkins’ biggest fan! I am just obsessed with everything she does! All her makeup looks are amazing and I feel like she’s just a bomb ass chick! I also LOVE Lydia Millen from the UK! Her makeup is simple but her skin always looks incredible and she has amazing fashion sense as well.
I also love Shaaanxo, Nikki Tutorials, Nicole Guerriero, LustreLux … and the list goes on!
Q: If you weren’t in the beauty industry, what would you be doing?
N: I’ve always been interested in beauty and makeup but it’s never been a career for me! A lot of people may or may not know but I actually work full time as an acute care Registered Nurse! Although I have worked as a freelancing MUA, I have always tried to keep it FUN! I wanted it to remain a hobby rather than work so that I continued to enjoy it!
Q: What are your goals for 2017?
N: I have lots of goals for 2017! I have a lot of personal goals that I want to achieve but as far as makeup goes I’m really just excited to see where it takes me! I’ve already participated in some amazing opportunities to work with HUGE brands and I am so thankful! I’m really just excited to see what I can do and where I can go. I look forward to working with so many incredible people again this year and meeting so many more of my followers and also fellow creators and artists. My other main goal for 2017 is to continue to grow my social media presence and keep my content different, always changing and what my followers are interested in!
