Selena Gomez MTV Movie Awards 2013 Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone! Here's a look inspired by Selena Gomez's makeup during her performance on the MTV Movie Awards. I'm actually a big fan of her and I think she's so beautiful naturally. When I saw her makeup I just knew I had to recreate it. Although my look came out quite different from hers, I still think it's a great rendition of what she had on. Hope you all like it!

MAC Archie's Girls Caramel Sundae Palette Tutorial

Here's a look using Archie's Girls Caramel Sundae Palette. I have to admit these eyeshadows were a bit difficult to work with especially when using them all together. I think these colors would look gorgeous if I were to pair them with other colors that compliment them instead of using them all in one look. The look didn't come out the way I expected it to but I thought it came out nice either way. It's a soft smokey eye that's very subtle and very wearable for all skin tones and eye colors. Hope you like it! :)

Gold Glitter Smokey Eyes for Prom

Hello and long time no post! It's been about 2 weeks since I did my last tutorial and I knew I had to make a comeback soon. I've been stressing out over some personal things going on in my life and doing tutorials is honestly my best escape. I thought I would start a prom series on YouTube and on my blog since prom season is coming up. This look I did is so easy to do and it took very little effort. I thought I would make the look simple and easy to follow for those who will be doing their own makeup for prom. And by simple I mean not complicated, not necessarily natural looking. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it. As always thanks for watching and visiting my blog. Take care! xoxo

Blue and Green Makeup & Tutorial

Hi everyone! Today's look is super bold and bright! It has to probably be one of my most favorite looks I've done in the history of my makeup career. Haha! I'm just completely obsessed with the combination of blue, green, and teal. This look is dramatic but I find it quite wearable in my opinion. The lips and the cheeks are a bit toned down making it easy to wear without anyone looking at you like you're cray! I hope you all enjoy this look as much as I do. Thanks for watching!

Teal & Coral Makeup for Spring

Spring is here and I can already feel it! It's been a while since I worked with colors so I figured what better way to welcome the Spring season than with a tutorial. I did a makeup look similar to this last year but using different colors. I'm just a huge fan of teal and coral together. The colors compliment each other so much! Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the look and the tutorial!

I also forgot to mention that I am officially a YouTube partner. I've been a "partner" for a while now but I recently partnered with Beautique which is operated by Fullscreen, a YouTube network. I'm so excited! I'm looking forward to even bigger and better opportunities for me and I look forward to collaborate with so many talented people. :)

How to Sanitize and Depot Lipstick Without Heat

Hi everyone! This weekend I decided to do a little DIY project for my lipsticks. I've been meaning to house my lipsticks into palettes but I wasn't sure which palette to go with. I knew that whatever I chose, I wanted it to be practical, sturdy, and easy. I'm so happy I got my hands on this bead box I found at Michael's. Not only is it affordable, but it's absolutely perfect for lipsticks or even loose shadows and other cream products that you may have. No more lugging around 50 tubes of lipstick when you're at a gig, thank goodness! Instead of melting the lipsticks I decided to "press" them into the jars. Not only is this technique a lot faster but it's also less messy. Although I do believe that heat won't alter the original color of the lipstick, I choose not to take the chance in case I happen to accidentally burn the lipstick. *crosses fingers*!

Any kind of lipstick will work for this project! I used brands from MAC, Estee Lauder, NYX, Maybelline, Wet N Wild, etc. I noticed some lipsticks were easier than others to remove from its tube. It mostly varied depending on the brand and the type of finish. For example, Maybelline lipsticks were easy to remove and mostly came out in one piece, whereas NYX lipsticks were far more creamy and required more scooping.

In total, the box holds 6 stackable jars that stack up to a total of 5 (you can stack more if you choose not to store them in the box). That's a total of 30 jars that you can depot your lipstick into! I really like this technique of depotting my lipsticks because not only are they in their own little compartment which keeps them away from other colors, but it also allows me to arrange the jars however I want to. You can also pick and choose which colors you want to bring along with you depending on your makeup gig or for travel because you can unscrew each jar onto another one. This entire box along with the stackable jars go for about $9.00, but you may be able to find them cheaper like I did! They were 40% off when I purchased mine so be on the look out for upcoming deals! Nonetheless, $9.00 is already very affordable compared to other lip palettes that are out there!
