Step By Step: How To Apply And Blend Face Makeup + My Face Favorites!


This video was published on my YouTube Channel on August 7, 2015.


 
HI EVERYONE!!

I worked sooo hard on this video for you guys!! I really hope that you enjoy it and even learn something new!

The technique that I used in this video was not taught to me!

I use both hands to do makeup (and everything else for that matter) so I would switch hands while blending eye as well as face makeup... To speed up my makeup applications I started holding a brush in each hand- Then I started noticing the difference it made using two separate brushes to blend out my face makeup and the difference it made with each product vs the brush being used. That's when I came up with this technique!

This is not the only way (technique) that I use to apply and blend face makeup, because of all the nice comments that I received on my last video about my blending technique it inspired me to talk you guys through step by step on what I did!
I'd love to see you guys try this out! If you do not own the same exact brushes you can try to dupe them for similar ones that you already have!

EASY CUT CREASE EYESHADOW + MY FIRST YOUTUBE VIDEO!


Hey Guys!

This was the very first YouTube video that I posted a couple of weeks ago!

I enjoy every single aspect of making a video, teaching myself has given me an even deeper passion and appreciation for this craft.

Please go over to my channel & subscribe- help me get to 100 so that I can choose my custom url <3

Thank you for being a part of my journey! xo

So Much Going On: Updates!


First FAST UPDATE:
Okay, So I completed 6 days of my water fast. On the 6th day I went to work for CHANEL as a freelance artist for one of their counters. It was the launch of the fall collection & if you know me, you know that fall makeup is my all time FAVORITE! I was super excited to be called in for the job, and I already had in the back of my mind.... "you better eat something!" but I didn't want to stop fasting and I wasn't hungry AT ALL!


Here's a snapshot of my Instagram Post- Isn't this collection
 beautiful!!!!????!
Long story short around 3 o'clock I started feeling extremely dizzy and my vision began getting blurry so I took a break and drank some soup to break my fast. I know that the only reason why I started feeling like that is simply because I wasn't drinking enough water! When I keep drinking it keeps me hydrated and I don't feel weak, but downside is I have to use the bathroom like every 20-25 minutes! I can't keep leaving while I'm working so I just drank about 8 ounces of water before I left home and took a couple of sips of my water at work and totally forgot about it! Another thing- I can't drink warm water... I just don't like the taste, my water has to be cold so once my water bottle got warm I thought I would be fine by lunch time to buy a new bottle but uhhh yea, didn't turn out so. I did gain a lot of spiritual clarity while fasting & learned the difference between when I'm hungry or when I'm just thirsty!

 

Pic that I snapped of the counter with my iPhone 6 - I used VSCOcam to edit.

LIFE UPDATE!
I'm keeping busy by teaching myself how to edit & learn more about that kind of stuff. If I had to name 2 things that I've always been into since a child it's film making and teaching. Growing up as a little girl I always told my mom that I wanted to be a teacher.... I would write on her walls with chalk and pretend to be teaching a class! Whenever we'd go anywhere since about 8 years old I've always been the photographer/videographer! I was always the person recording everything! They used to call me the camera lady! hahaha! Until this day; when we go out my mom, my aunt, - everyone close to me always wants ME to take their picture! I've never realized what a connection I had with photography and editing until recently when I started to make my makeup videos. I've been taking personal videos of vacations, bdays, (personal stuff) & I'd edit and send to all of my friends and family! They would always tell me what a great job I've done & I would never look at it as "work" just a hobby. Fasting helped me put a lot of things into perspective! (in a nutshell) What else.... I haven't been including post about parenting/lifestyle & that's what I started this blog about so I'll be incorporating more lifestyle posts; strictly just for my blog!
Here are a few pics of my baby girl & I this past week at the park! I can't believe when I started this blog she was about a year old and I was giving out pregnancy survival tips! Now she's  going on 6 years old and about to be in the 1st grade!!!!!!


Kissy Face!

She loves to watch the ducks!
 We have been going to the park to feed them all summer!

I was trying to smile with my eyes; she was trying to finish her slushy!


 
 Love you guys & thanks so much for taking the time out to read ☕.



"No matter how careful I am, there's going to be the sense that I missed something, the collapsed feeling under my skin that I didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that I rushed right through the moments where I should've been paying attention. Well, I'm getting used to that feeling. This is all practice. None of this matters. I'm just warming up."
