We first met Hayley when we fell in love with her makeup skills and her Makeup for Glasses series on her YouTube channel, PassionKassel. (Check out her makeup look that complements her glasses above!) When asked why she applied to be a style ambassador, she said “I love how glasses can really amp up any look, and I also like to show how women/men can wear many different kinds of makeup looks while incorporating their favorite glasses.” As a professional makeup artist, Hayley’s the pro when it comes to creating new looks using colors and accessories.
