Sigma Ultimate Copper Eye Brush Set – Insta Eye Tutorial

Hey ladies, it feels like forever since I uploaded a beauty tutorial. These videos are the type of thing that the more you do the better they turn out except that life makes me take such long pauses between filming them that I'm always second guessing myself (oh the life of a blogger/youtuber). Anyway I wanted to show you a quick party eye tutorial to show you how and when you would use the different brushes in an eye set and I hope I accomplished just that! I've been using Sigma makeup brushes ever since I started to get a taste for makeup and they have been sturdy and strong throughout 5+ years of working in the makeup industry and filming videos. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2676894"] Hope you enjoy…

Stella & Dot + Smashbox = Beauty Fix!

Every time I wear this layered necklace by S&D I get compliments on how talented I am in this layering game, except it's not me! Hahaha Let me introduce you to Ezra, Stella & Dot's layered necklace! It comes like that ladies, you can play around and take some layers off but I promise it won't require any type of layering skills!!! That's why I'm bringing you a video showing the different options you can style it.   In addition to S&D neck candy I wanted to show you the latest palette from Smashbox, The Cover Shot, I have the matte one and have been wearing every day to work.

Sigma Stellar Glow Collection

You're glowing!!! That's totally the reaction you'll get from the latest collection of loose glitters from Sigma. As I mention on the video I've always been a super fan of Sigma's brushes. Their sets offer a pretty fair price tag for professional brushes (think MAC like). I've purchased this set when I started to make YouTube videos and used on a ton of freelance work and they still feel and look like new. That being said I was excited to experiment with their makeup and so much more pleased to show you the results!! This is a spring look full of glow! Unfortunately I didn't thing the camera and lighting captured the true luminosity and shine of these products, so hopefully you'll get it when I show it closer.

Mountain Style + 5 Min. Vacation Makeup Tutorial

Ladies as some of you may know I'm on Spring Break vacay with the whole family. We hadn't had this much time together in a looooong time and as crazy as it might get at times (think when your whole family is together 24/7) I'm so grateful and truly loving every minute of this, and taking family talks to the next level! Besides time together I'm also enjoying my blogging time alone (for instance I'm writing this post at 11:20 mountain time - 1:20 Indy time) sipping a glass of vino and editing my videos and pics without having to stop every 5 minutes!! Yay for Vacay!!!! So let's talk about this cute little look (probably the only cute one I brought since we came to ski and not do "look of the day"…

Philipe’s Day Spa Review + “Get Ready with Me” Video

A couple weeks ago I was treated to a Spa afternoon at Philipe's Day Spa & Cosmetique here in Indy. I got lots of pampering and age reversing treatments! Say what?! Yeah girl I know I got your attention!!! I happened to take a few shots of my face after my facial and posted one as my "before" shot on a makeup video. That got lots of people complimenting my skin. Well I do take care of it, even my esthetician Lauren said so!! But it has NEVER, EVER looked this good...after a certain age! [caption id="attachment_6304" align="alignnone" width="1024"] The "before" was taken at the evening I had my facial done.[/caption] Ok first things first. I was scheduled to do a "Time Reversing" spa package that includes a Body Toning Treatment; Anti-Ageing facial and Paraffin Hand…

Lipstick Jungle

++ Guys I'm sorry my first upload was messed up (no idea why but youtube cut the video in half), this is the full version!++ So lately I have been so daring when it comes to lips. Maybe it doesn't appear so for you but my friends compared to what I used to do (think clear lip gloss or a sheer lipstick when I was feeling  audacious) I'm being bold now, trust me! I used to think my lips were the thinnest most boring little lips ever, until I actually learned some MUA tricks to enhance what I already have and ever since that I've been playing with them babies like a little girl, seriously! On today's video I will show you my favorite lipsticks, my trick to make them look fuller, what I…
