New Years Makeup Tutorial





I finally made a Tutorial for this look, which was my "Sultry Valentine's Day" makeup that I posted earlier in the year. I thought making the tutorial now would be perfect timing since the look would be great for New Year's Eve.







I tried to keep the eyes exactly the same, but I did use different products for my cheeks & lips. On my cheeks I have Sparkling Cider by Mary Kay & MAC Blunt.
For the lip color, all I used was my new favorite lip color-Exhilarating by Stila. I got this on Cyber Monday for like $6! It's super matte (which I love) & bright, and also long wearing.




That's all for this post, so I hope you all have a happy new year!

Update (School, tutorials, MAC pro)






Haven't been posting anything on here, nor on The Tube, so here is a little update. I had been really busy with school and though I only had two classes this past semester, one of them took up a lot of my time. I am now on winter break for a couple of weeks, so I keep telling myself that I WILL make at least one tutorial, if it kills me. Especially since I will have more classes next semester, and might be busier.

On to makeup, this is something I did kind of recently (last month or so) for a contest that Enkore/Koren hosted. The makeup theme was a lip design that had to consist of 5 different colors, though this rule wasn't enforced after all -_-
The prize was his home made Hello Kitty palette, which he made a tutorial on. I didn't win the palette, but I did make my own & this is how it turned out:







And so this brings me to my (hopefully) next tutorial-'paint splattered' lips, which has been requested ever since my Bon Bain Bonnard look that I did.



Oh, another reason I need to be doing more makeup is because i've purchased lots of new products this & last month, especially with the Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales that we had in November. I also visited the MAC pro. store in San Francisco for the first time and picked up a pigment, a lipstick, and mixing medium. So that completes this post, and I will hopefully see you all in my next video : )
