i say this all the time, but this is one of my favorite looks! i may not do natural looks, but damn do i love a good smokey eye! i finally got my hands on satin taupe, thanks to my friend kacie, and am not wondering how i’ve lived this long without it! if you don’t have it, GET IT! it’s SO gorgeous and perfect for smokey eyes!

NATURAL makeup tutorial

10 Jul

as most of you know, if you’ve been following me on youtube for any amount of time, i don’t really do natural looks. i feel like if i’m going to wear makeup, i want it to be seen. i want it to be bright and fun and i want to have fun putting it on and experimenting with color. i’ve gotten a TON of requests for natural makeup. i usually apologize and refer them to another guru who does natural makeup, because it isn’t my thing. that being said, i had somewhere i needed to be early and wanted to put makeup on quickly. i threw this on and ended up LOVING it! it takes less than 5 minutes and is natural, while still being interesting.

oh noooo! after typing all of that, i realize that i lost the pictures to that stupid virus! so no pictures, but here is the video if you haven’t seen it.

sorry for the lack of posts the past few days! i have a good reason though and plan to go into depth in a vlog soon. to make a long story short, my computer got a nasty virus! yeah, a virus, ugh! my fiance happens to be a computer genius and couldn’t fix it, at one point he thought it had completely fried my harddrive. :( thankfully, it didn’t, but he had to reinstall the operating system which wiped my harddrive clean. i lost a few months worth of pictures and years worth of other files. it was a pretty emotional day. i know it’s just a computer and just stuff, but it still sucked.

that’s why i haven’t been around! i’m trying to get used to windows 7 (i had xp before) and am still working on getting all of my programs back, etc. there’s a new tutorial up on youtube, which i’ll throw on here tomorrow with pictures once i get photoshop running again.

i hope everyone is doing well! :)
