A Dose of Michelle Dy

Michelle tells us more about her and her experiences in vlogging. Get to know more about the ever famous Filipina Youtube Vlogger and makeup guru, Michelle Dy!
Hey guys! So I am back with another interview post and this time, I am interviewing the very famous and ever loved "Mamshie" of almost all Filipinas, Michelle Dy.
As you all know, aside from watching Korean Dramas online, I am also fond of watching vlogs through YouTube. I am a fan of Janina Vela, Will Dasovich and Lloyd Cadena- famous lifestyle and comedy vloggers in the Philippines.
If you were able to watch my vlogs already, you would know that I am not that fond of wearing make up. I never learned how to apply makeup until I was 19, my current age. Yes. But then I realised that I have to learn how to do it because it can be a necessity for a lady like me.
I asked my friends if they know vloggers who do makeup tutorials on youtube. However, they always give me foreign vloggers. As much as I would want to learn from them, my goal is to learn from a Filipina. Why? Because I have this thinking na if I learn from a Filipina it would be easier for me to: 1. Find makeup products that is easy to get in the Philippines and 2. Apply makeup that would suit a Filipina skin (morena skin to be exact).
Until ate Cath (check her book review blog. She has the best review blog! To All the Books I've Read Before) suggested this name: Michelle Dy.
From that very moment, I fell in love with her... Mamshie Michelle Dy.
Anyways a month ago I decided to send her an email asking if I could interview her and she replied with a YES!!!! Here's my interview with her!
