Luminous Lime Green Eye Look



Hey Guys!
Why not try a little pop of color... and a color that's a little unusual and uncommon to use? Urban Decay has a beautiful lime green shade of eyeliner called Freak that is worth checking out. If you have brown eyes, this color is going to make them POP!

Sarah Schuerman on YouTube first used the combination of this eyeliner with Michelle Phan's Em Cosmetics Sparking Top Coat in Celestial Sparkle - and I had to re-create it! It's such a great combination. You should check out Sam's YouTube tutorials! Here is her channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/samanthaschuerman

My Current Foundation Routine - April 2014



I thought it would be a good idea to nail down my current foundation routine, now that I have found a routine I'm really happy with! I also wanted to make my makeup look videos a little shorter and more convenient for my audience. I will be sure to update with a new routine, should any of this change in the future! Let's be honest - that's going to happen.... hahaha.

Here's the video to see my current foundation routine:

Spring Makeup Tutorial with Blue Eyeliner


Here's a little fun look for Spring! I kept the makeup very natural to emphasize the pop of blue underneath the lash line. This is a look that will draw attention to the eyes. I received many compliments when I wore this and a request for a tutorial - so here it is!

Check out the tutorial here:




Products Mentioned:

Laneige BB Cushion First Impression & Demo

I've replaced my current foundation with the Laneige BB Cushion, and I'm very happy with it. I purchased this last week in the color, Light, and have been using it every day since. The product comes in 3 shades: Light, Medium, and Dark. I have to say the "Dark" is definitely one of the darkest CC cream products I've ever seen.  Just to clarify, this is like a Blemish Balm and Color Corrector product combined, but in liquid form. It is also stored in a compact and a sponge keeps the product inside of it. You use a sort of rubbery puff to pat on the product. It looks airbrushed and flawless because of this. I've never used something like this before!
 
Check out my YouTube video to learn more:


 
This is a line that comes from Korea. Some of the products, mainly skincare, can be purchased at Target! I am very interested in trying out some of their skincare line - since I'm loving the Laneige BB Cushion so much. If I do, you know I'll post about it on here.

 Thank you for reading my blog!
