Giving Love to Nature - Spiritual Nurturing: A Beauty Ritual

One of the most beautiful and sacred things you can do for your mind and spirit is to be outside and walk in nature. Taking nature in, giving and receiving love with it, and just being around it, is very healing. It naturally reduces stress, helps your body release more serotonin, and it connects you to yourself... which is the direct portal and connection to all that is.
When you spend time in nature, you enhance your physical being and tend to glow from the inside out. This is a great beauty ritual to do for your beauty, health, and wellness. It's a sacred way to honor your spirit, mind, and body. I put together a video of some images and moments I spent in nature yesterday, set to a song that will captivate your mind and set yourself free of any worries. Enjoy this moment with me and if you can, get outside today

Brown Smokey Eye Look for my Sister!

My sister sent me a picture of this beautiful model wearing a sophisticated, brown smokey eye. I wanted to surprise her and film a tutorial of me creating this look for her. The look took a bit of time to make sure the contouring and highlighting matched the way it looked in the photo and the eyes, too. When I wore this look to work that night, I got so many compliments. This look will look great on every eye color. I hope you like it! Thanks for watching.

Smokey Cat Eye Look - Using Neutral Colors

It's time for me to show some tricks and tips as to how I achieve some of my smokey cat eye looks!

I really enjoy using browns and taupes to do this. I chose to use one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes by Louise Young. It's her Essential Eyeshadow Palette. The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and provide long-lasting color.

You can substitute whatever colors you have in place of what I use.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Thanks for watching Xx.
