Bobby Jean Spears

Bobby Jean Spears: What the fuck is up TSC Fam?! I’m the one & solely WORLD Famend Tremendous Star ( that you simply’ve by no means heard of ) Bobby Jean Spears. I entertain 10’s & 10’s of individuals on-line with make-up & skincare content material.

I wouldn’t think about myself a typical “magnificence influencer” – I’m not, nor do I ever faux to be wealthy or dwelling lavishly. And I work part-time from residence so I’m somebody who hopes driving through Starbucks doesn’t overdraft my account ( lmao ) & I simply don’t have it in me to pretend this excellent, glam, “insta life.” 

My “insta life” is simply my life. I do promo for manufacturers & completely different merchandise, however I don’t oversell.  I make actual connections with my viewers & that’s what’s most enjoyable for me. AND I don’t suggest issues I don’t like or wouldn’t use. It’s not value 20% of a $25 greenback sale, ya know? I lean extra in direction of simply making an attempt to be an entertaining & relatable character that my viewers can examine in with on-line & escape a shitty day….or generally share in mine!

I additionally am very open about my wrestle with psychological sickness ( Main Depressive Dysfunction / Extreme Nervousness / ADHD ) & really feel it’s crucial to be simply as open about my highs as I’m my lows. If it helps 1 individual then I’ve made a distinction then that’s fairly cool. I by no means need to create a facade on the web. On the off likelihood I had been to ever blow up & “make it,” I couldn’t think about the strain you’re feeling to maintain that facade up always. So if I’m going to make it, I don’t need to fear about maintaining with a self created false perfection that doesn’t exist.

You’re SO GOOD at doing make-up. Are you able to give us your prime suggestions?


My first & crucial tip I may give you entails your mindset.

Do your self a favor & settle for the truth that you might be most definitely not going to be excellent or nice at EVERYTHING. For instance: I completely fucking SUCK at eyeliner. I’m shaky, uncoordinated, have hooded eyes, & doing it’s the bane of my existence. It used to essentially deter me from creating ( generally it nonetheless does ), however I’ve come to comprehend I can cowl that weak point with completely different strategies, & in some instances a tremendous instrument will current itself that makes one thing simpler.

I’m happy to say that simply days in the past I discovered a product that might be recreation altering for me & my fellow eyeliner challenged. Check out Information Magnificence! I actually suppose it’ll be a life saver for me! On the time of this writing I’ve solely used it twice as a result of I simply bought it, however I’ve by no means been extra excited for a product. I feel it is not going to solely elevate my appears to be like, however give me an enormous enhance of confidence in myself & my talents.

It’s perf that we’re already speaking about magnificence instruments as a result of that takes me proper into my NUMBER 2 TIP: INVEST IN GOOD, HIGH QUALITY MAKEUP BRUSHES!!

Inexpensive make-up manufacturers have stepped their pussy up over the previous few years by way of high quality so that you now not have to lay our a fortune on all of your cosmetics. Discover some cheap dupes for a pair issues & take that extra cash & GET GOOD BRUSHES!!! The most effective brushes can apply a $12  basis higher than an terrible brush can apply a $70 basis.

The very last thing I’ll say to persuade you that brushes must be your subsequent obsession is that the sturdiness makes them an INVESTMENT. Odds are that prime high quality basis brush can be with you 10 years down the highway if correctly cared for, saving you a lot cash in the long term. My HANDS DOWN favourite brushes come from Anisa Magnificence they’re not like any others.

+ Pinnacle Basis Brush

+ Crescent Contour Brush

+ Angled Concealer Brush

are all MUST-HAVES!

Additionally they make wonderful skincare brushes that I’m obsessive about. I like them a lot that I reached out to see if I might get them to offer me a reduction code so I can impress you all & bribe you for affection. Nicely, I’m happy to say that you should use code ITSBOBBY for 15% off! In the event you strive them, let me know what you suppose!!

I’m writing a novel so I’ll do a 3rd & closing fast tip:

In the event you’re something like me you are taking eternally to prepare, however even in case you are tremendous punctual this tip will show you how to save & handle a while! In case you have an occasion, social gathering, picture shoot, or something the place you’re planning to serve some glam…DO A DRY RUN!!

What I imply by that’s 1-3 days earlier than your occasion, begin  planning out your look, get your inspo, collect all of the merchandise you will want or use ( I put all of them in a plastic shoe field lol ) & then do your make-up. I do that as a result of it helps me save time. After I go to truly prepare on the precise day I already know precisely what eyeshadow shade story I’m going with & precisely tips on how to create it.

I’ve labored out all of the kinks & errors & tweaks I need to make. Perhaps not a tip for everybody, however I’m very simply distracted & have bother making choices, so if I give myself a day to be artistic with no time restrict to determine precisely what I need to appear to be with no strain of being late, then on the day of the occasion I simply sit down & do the very same factor in half the time, as a result of the artistic half that may gradual my anxious mind down & make me take eternally has been carried out. I can simply set myself on autopilot! 

Bobby Jean Spears makeup tips

Is make-up utility completely different for a person than it’s for a girl?

BJS: Make-up utility is completely different for each particular person no matter gender. Everybody’s pores and skin is completely different, everybody has completely different style, everybody has completely different bone construction, everybody has completely different insecurities they use make-up for.

I’m being repetitive with the phrase “everybody” on objective. I actually need to get to a spot on the planet the place make-up has no gender. I get requested this query so much & I perceive & the quick non-preachy reply is “no” lol. The query can simply generally really feel condescending ( I’m positive it’s by no means supposed & I’m not offended nor do I communicate for anybody however myself ). My emotions come from a spot of insecurity that the world appears like I’m an imposter & that make-up is a cis girl’s recreation & we as males ( or different genders ) don’t belong.

I need to normalize males in make-up & anytime I can get an opportunity to clarify that its not about gender in any respect, besides to society, I do it. The quantity of “nobody desires to see a man in make-up” feedback I get are so ignorant & I’d be completely happy if I might higher educate only one reader.

You have got completely different bone construction. Contouring shouldn’t appear to be an enormous darkish line down your face. It takes follow & an understanding of your individual face & how mild hits it. I’m being tremendous nerdy about it as a result of it’s actually my favourite a part of the make-up course of since you actually get to grab & rework your face.

I began to offer personal Zoom classes through the pandemic & contouring was the primary factor folks needed to study. They might all say that they had watched tons of tutorials & nonetheless can’t get it. As soon as they study to contour for THEM & study precisely what contouring does they’re at all times shocked by how a lot much less intimidating & scary it really is! 

You’re superb at creating content material that’s humorous, whereas additionally being academic. What are your suggestions for different content material creators?

BJS: Simply be your self, cease caring about likes, & views & simply do it & be constant. I’m nonetheless so removed from being profitable that I nonetheless must strive & observe my very own recommendation. I’ve actually tried this previous 12 months to simply keep in mind that it solely takes one publish, one alternative or one connection to realize traction & take off so the extra constant you’re the higher the possibility of that occuring.

In the future I feel I gained 100+ followers merely since you ( Lauryn ) posted me in your story, & my highest seen reel is since you shared it. By no means in my life did I feel I might even barely join with you & now due to one or two posts, I’m answering your questions which is an honor, & additionally one other alternative to develop & acquire publicity.

Do my social media stats & self doubt make me marvel why on the planet you’ll even take an curiosity in me? ABSOLUTELY….however I’ve to place that to the aspect & embrace any alternative that comes my approach, even when I really feel like I don’t deserve it.
