April Beauty Favorites | 2015

Once again, another month has come and gone. April was fun for me because I was able to attend IMATS and buy new makeup. I haven’t been purchasing too much new makeup lately because I don’t have enough storage space. Don’t worry though, I am working on that! I can’t wait to one day have my own beauty room/office space. I digress..

Brittany Sky | Orange Inspired Makeup Tutorial ♥

The other day I was scrolling through Instagram and happened to come across @brittanysky ‘s Instagram page. I decided to go through it and look at her pictures, she’s very beautiful and her makeup was gorgeous! If I’m correct, I believe she is a model but I’m not 100% sure. Anyway, After pretty much stalking her page for a good 30 minutes, I decided to screen shot one of her pictures and recreate her makeup look.

I’m always a sucker for color. Any type of color, so when I saw her bright orange eyeshadow I was automatically attracted to it! Unfortunately, I didn’t have a bright orange eyeshadow that was as bold as hers so I decided to make my recreation a little more wearable for you guys.

This look is something I would definitely wear in the summer, It just gives you this beautiful natural glow! Ughh love!

I hope you guys enjoy this look as much as I did recreating it 🙂 Tag Brittany Sky if you can so she can see too! (Please!) and of course like always, if you enjoy this video please share with your friends, comment, like, and subscribe to my youtube channel!

March Beauty Favorites ♥ 2014

March came and went! I can’t believe we’re almost half way through the year again. Every time I do these videos it reminds me of how fast time is flying.

For March I didn’t have too many favorites, since the weather in New York was super cold the past few months my face was extremely dry. I was trying to avoid wearing too much makeup so that my skin could heal and get back to its normal, non-dry self which is why I don’t have many favorites this month. Don’t you worry though, April is going to be a fun month for favorites because I’ve bought so many goodies in the past few weeks that I’m so excited to try new things and tell you guys about it. Plus, IMATS is this weekend and I will be there on saturday, I hope to get some goodies there as well, so my April favorites should be fun!

anyway, here is the video. I hope you guys enjoy it and like always, if you do, please like, comment, subscribe, and share the video with your friends!
