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!

Duochrome Blue Green Eyeshadow Tutorial

Hey guys! I’ve been in LOVE with duochrome eyeshadows this month. I found a blue green loose eyeshadow by MAC recently and I knew I had to use it in a tutorial. To blend it out, I also used the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette to blend out the intensity of the MAC shade.

Hope you enjoy and you see you in the next video! 😉

Monochromatic Rose Nude Makeup

 

Hey guys! This is the makeup that I’ve been pretty much wearing all day, every day – whether it’s to go to work, grocery shopping, etc. You name it, and this has been my go-to makeup look. And so, subsequently I felt inspired to make a quick tutorial about it.

Em Cosmetic’s “Rose Nude” liquid lipstick has been killing me! Their lipstick just glides on and sits on the lips perfectly. Plus it smells like chocolate (yum).

Hope you enjoy watching!

Orange Lip, Cut Crease Makeup Look

Bright orange lips are so fun to rock during springtime.
I sat down in front of the camera and just started to play around. Eventually I thought I would go for a more daring cut crease look. To make it more interesting though, I added a wing to the cut crease. Ugh, and the orange NYX lipstick? I’ve been in love with orange, I think it’s one of the best shades for those with a yellow undertone. I went for a muted orange lip by adding in concealer to the lips.

Here’s the video. Enjoy!

Fall Burgundy Makeup Tutorial

Fall is officially upon us! I am so ready for the warm sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and fun holidays that are coming up. Know what else? 😉 An extra reason to sport a darker makeup look.

I used mostly the Modern Renaissance palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I know the palette has been around for awhile now, but I’ve been so inspired by their red shades.

Here’s my version of that. I wanted to go for a darker red, burgundy makeup look:

Just Peachy | makeup tutorial

I’ve been seeing (and absolutely loving!) the faux freckles trend on Youtube & Instagram. There is something so endearing about freckles – it gives off a very “Anne from Green Gables” vibe that’s very youthful, fresh, and playful.

I also applied my blush differently for this tutorial. Instead of applying the blush just on the apple of my cheeks, I also applied it on my nose bridge as well. As a result, it looks more like you just ran a mile and your face is flushed. Kind of like Vanellope from the movie Wreck It Ralph.

Anyway, enough of me talking (or writing, haha). Here’s the video, I hope you enjoy:

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:
