Cotton Candy Makeup Tutorial

I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted. Geezus, time just seriously flies…!

I’m here with another makeup tutorial today. I was itching to try out some new makeup products a friend had sent over to me, and this was the look I came up with on the spot. the pinkish, turquoise, and lilac shades really reminded me of Cotton Candy. Hence the title, “Cotton Candy Makeup” lol.

Overall, it was a pretty easy look to create! There were some holy grail products that I just fell in love with all over again (does that ever happen to you? Lol) which includes my Bareminerals BarePRO makeup. There were some new products that I fell in love after trying it for the first time too (Wet N Wild’s “Halographic” liquid highlighter? Um, GTFO YOU’RE GORGEOUS).

Out of all the new products I tried, I think my least favorite was the BeautyPeople mascara. Definitely will not be repurchasing that. It’s apparently a new Korean brand that has been getting a lot of traction, but unfortunately the mascara did nothing for my short, sparse Asian lashes. I’ll definitely be going back to my Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara after I finish the current mascara.

Anyway, enough of me ranting. Here are the products I used in this tutorial. And also some pics!

Current Foundation and Eyebrow Routine

Hello again! Here’s my current foundation and eyebrow routine. 🙂

For face, I’m absolutely in love with Cushion Compacts. First off, it’s low maintenance – your gal here doesn’t like to stress about whether her makeup is looking alright, not streaking, etc. They’re lightweight (I love how it doesn’t feel cakey). I can reapply it throughout the day with the cushion instead of worrying about carrying extra brushes or Beauty Blenders with me. While evening out your skin tone, it also looks natural on the skin, which I’m a total fan of.

As for brows, I’ve kept the same brow routine for years – applying Anastasia Beverly Hill’s duo brow powder with an angled brush. Then I brush the brow hairs with a spoolie to get rid of any excess product. The natural, soft look really pulls me in.

Without any further adieu, here’s the video:
