Sharing the Love – My Favorite Valentine’s Day Tutorials

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!! I wanted to share some love today by showing you my favorite Valentine’s Day tutorials. These definitely can be worn any day of the year, but I wanted to show you them to share some inspo:

I LOVED this look by LoveMelisaMichelle because it’s sexy and super GLAM for those girls looking for a very full face look it’s kind of similar to my Jade Smokey Eye look:

I’m all about that gold glitter life and I’m loving this YouTuber with a growing channel I recently found named BabsBeauty she is like a barbie! I’m also obsessed with her hair in this video: Continue reading Sharing the Love – My Favorite Valentine’s Day Tutorials

Jade Smokey Eye Tutorial Using Lorac Pro Palette 2 & Simplehuman 5X Sensor Vanity Mirror

I received the Lorac Pro Palette 2 for Christmas and have been loving it! Right on Christmas day I even used it to create this Jade Smokey Eye look that I wore for the festivities as well as family portraits that I took for my dad’s present with my new Canon Rebel t3i. This palette is super versatile, can create day or night looks, and has both matte and shimmer shades. I would say the biggest downfall is you can get some serious fall out (when they eyeshadow gets on your cheeks while applying), but that can be avoided by applying dark or dramatic looks before doing your foundation routine like I did during this tutorial.

Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial

I really love this video I think this girl is awesome and hilarious. Megan MacKay is a writer and comedian from Canada and you can check out her website for more info meganmackay.net She combines some of my favorite things in this one: feminism, makeup, humor, calling people out on their shit, and helping women. I hope this video goes even more viral than it has already!

Some of my favorite parts:

  • Foundation in a new shade called The NFL because it will cover up anything just to save face
  • The intersectional feminism eyeshadow primer- And to those people generally the best thing to do is um read a fucking history book.
  • Bronzer time! I love this name it’s so punny it’s ‘Orange You Sad That the American News Source Most Dedicated to Truthful Journalism Turned Out To Be TMZ?’

So yeah be sure to check out this video because this girl is quick and it has a good message. Also, if you don’t want your day to take a turn for the worst I recommend (and this is just s general life tip) to not read the comments.
