Episode Info:

Matthew Anthony and Nicholas Bartolozzi are not only two of the world's most talented makeup and hair artists, they're also the nicest, funniest, and most down-to-earth people we've ever met. With years and years of salon, freelance, and beauty counter experience, they joined forces to create The Beauty Boys in 2018 and it's been a runaway success ever since. 

Matthew and Nicholas tell us how they got started in the beauty industry, their advice for aspiring beauty gurus, and how they stand out in a crowded industry. We talk about the rewards and challenges of working with and living with your boyfriend (they've since gotten engaged - so now, fiance!), their process for busy wedding days, and their inside scoop on all the best beauty, skincare, and hair products.
