Adventures in Glitter

Hey folks, here is a video with me trying on glitter. It’s not quite a tutorial because I this was my first time before but it went pretty well so hopefully you can still pick up some tips from it. Not sure what happened at the end. I remembered filming an ending but can’t find the video so I made it work.

Any suggestions for future Adventures in Glitter videos or questions? Please leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!

5 Minute Face #3

Hey folks, sorry I missed my usual day of posting yesterday. Let’s blame it on taking extra time off for my birthday. 🙂

Anyways, today I have my third 5 Minute Face for you. And it’s styled in my favourite colour: purple! I wanted to show that you can have a bright look in under 5 minutes as well.

Hope you like the purple look. Would love to hear from you, please leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!

Cheeks and Contouring

Hey folks, so I feel like vlogging is my new calling. I have been having a hard time sitting in front of the computer and writing posts and editing pictures. But on Saturdays (when the light is good), I am raring to put together some new videos. And I’m even enjoying editing videos and posting them on YouTube. Let’s hope I keep this enthusiasm up and have many more videos for you to enjoy.

Today I am talking about contouring and blush using my Tarte Light of the Party Palette. I keep just linking it back to Temptalia’s website where she gives it a barely passing grade but I LOVE THIS PALETTE. I almost feel bad for using it because it’s sold out and you can’t go get one but clearly I’m not feeling bad enough to stop using it. 😉

Anyways, I had been contouring using powder before I bought this palette but this was the clincher for me. I don’t do it every day but definitely when I have more time or just want to feel more special about my makeup that day.

I hope you enjoyed that short tutorial. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you thought. Happy Shopping!

5 Minute Face #1

Hey folks! Sorry it’s been so long since I wrote a post. My job-that-pays-the-bills was extremely busy during December and between that and Christmas shopping, the birthday parties, the Christmas parties and the quick trip to Ottawa, the month flew by very quickly.

Anyways, welcome to my new series: Five Minutes Faces. I hope you enjoy #1 and I would love to hear any ideas for more five minute faces or any tips you have for getting out the door quickly in the morning.

Happy Shopping!
