Tanya Burr shot to fame when she started posting make-up tutorials on YouTube and she now boasts over 2.5 million subscribers to her channel.

The social media superstar took time out to chat to HELLO! Fashion about her new range of false eyelashes, her top beauty tips and advice for aspiring vloggers...

Lashes make all the difference...
I wear lashes every time I get dressed up and do my make-up. They make a huge difference – they open up your eyes and make them look so much bigger, especially in photographs and selfies. My new range are all fluttery and natural – I've made them light so they're very wearable and easy to apply, that's super important to me.

My make-up bag contains...
Nars Sheer Glow foundation, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream for my lips, MAC eyeshadows, MAC Mystery for my eyebrows and I'm loving Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream – I've got it on underneath my foundation, I think it makes such a difference.

You CAN do smokey eyes and red lips together...
I don't believe in that old adage. Personally, the combination of the two doesn't look good on me, I think because I have big lips, but some people look amazing with smokey eyes and red lips so it totally depends on the person.

My no. 1 beauty trick...
Has to be using a fluffy brush to blend in your foundation. Using your fingers to apply foundation gives a natural finish, but this is great for a flawless, evening look.

My advice to aspiring YouTube vloggers would be...
Start your YouTube channel about something you're really passionate about. Don't do it expecting tons of views and stardom overnight, because it takes time – I've been doing this for five years! I think some people start out and they think 'Why am I not getting any views?' but I advise not to even look at your views; look at your content, make it amazing and people will share it.

I still love doing my videos...
I also love watching other videos – I can never get enough! I often go into my subscription box and realise I've watched everything so just wait until someone uploads something!

Details of my upcoming wedding are top secret. But my beauty advice to brides-to-be is...
Have a trial. It's so, so important. If you're a person who wears a bit of tinted moisturizer and foundation to work everyday, it might come as a surprise when a make-up artist gives you a full-on look... You might not even feel like you look like yourself!

Have a trial, photograph it – with flash on as well, some concealers, foundations and powders flash back – and see how well the make-up lasts.

I was starstruck when...
I met Mary Berry. I nearly cried, I was that happy to meet her! She was probably the first famous person I ever knew about because I used to bake from her books when I was five with my mum. I got a selfie with her!
