Ha! If you follow me on Instagram & caught my stories these past couple weeks, I’m sure you saw I was stuck editing this video for what felt like forever! This was my first time filming in 4k, & I do have to say that the quality of the footage looked incredible, but I just can’t do that again before updating my iMac’s RAM. Holy Moly!
I created this romantic glam look and was planning on getting it up before Valentine’s Day to give y’all some inspo but alas… its late! I’m a heavy glam girl no matter the season or occasion so I’d wear this look year-round anyways. If you’re into my makeup looks, I’m gonna guess that we’re on the same wave length! Enjoy the look & let me know what you think!
I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone with makeup lately and have been really trying to play with color! I recently received the new Urban Decay Moondust palette and couldn’t wait to dig into it. I usually am drawn to mattes and this palette is completely shimmer but with its unique duo toned jewel-tones, I couldn’t resist! I also finally dug into my metallic liquid lipsticks which I’ve been hesitant to play with. I was never a fan of frosty or pearlized lipsticks on my complexion but Colourpop Flitter, which is a close dupe for Kylie’s Heir, was sooo gorgeous with this look. Definitely something new for me! I hope you love the tutorial.
I am so thankful and excited about this video I created with Ulta Beauty! It’s such an honor to be working with them as not only are they a household name but such a powerhouse retailer! Practically any beauty product you might need you will be able to find at Ulta; so it goes without explaining that every product used in this tutorial can be found there and I have everything listed below for your holiday shopping needs. I love the holidays because everything is a little bit more glittery and gilded.. That’s me all year round but at least during this time of the year nobody looks at me like I’m weird or gaudy ;) This look is great to wear for Thanksgiving tomorrow or really anytime the next couple months! In my case & I’m sure many of you as well.. all year round! What do you think? Is glitter reserved just for this season or nah?
I tried doing a mermaid makeup look two years ago and my scales were an epic fail! The fabric wasn’t right, brushing product over the fabric wasn’t very precise, the colors weren’t pigmented.. no bueno all around! I took a swing at it again this year and I’m obsessed!! I bought fishnet tights from Target and used my Belletto Studio Airbrush System to brush on a beautiful rainbowed gradient. Super quick and easy! I want to experiment airbrushing over lace as well for a more gothy look – still brainstorming Halloween looks! I also used Colourpop Cosmetics’ new gel liners for this look – they are releasing soon so I’ll be sure to get all 24 shades swatched and up here on the blog asap! I hope you love this look!
