Did you know that years ago I was a makeup artist for like…2.5 seconds?

BEAUTY VIDEOS

WAY back in the day I brought tons of books and watched a lot of YouTube videos and taught myself how to do makeup. My partner and I hadn’t made any connects in the industry and couldn’t afford a professional makeup artist for our shoots (I was also a photographer and graphic artist). For a minute, I thought that’s I what I wanted to be. UNTIL I realized that I only liked doing my own makeup. Hence where the term beauty enthusiast comes from. Looking and feeling pretty is a must for me. I love recreating looks I see on my favorite celebrities and showcased in those unread glossies.

I recently got contacts (although I am still in love with my funky specs) so I’ve been playing around with some of my favorite makeup trends.

Colored liner is my absolute fave. It’s the perfect lazy girl solution to applying eyeshadow. Eyeshadow takes so much effort that I don’t have in the 15 minutes that I’ve allotted to beat my face every morning. But a funky blue eyeliner…yep, I am here for that.

I used two liquid liners, in black and blue. I applied less than an inch of the black liner and then an inch or so of the Sephora Collection “Pool Party” eyeliner directly above it. Not on top but above it!

    Grrrrl, who are you telling? ha ha..when i first started on youtube I was sure I’d end up a makeup artist, but i only have an interest in my own makeup and I’m just not precise enough to do it and showcase it on a professional level. I occasionally show a look on online and I ALWAYS gets tons of negative nancies telling me how much I suck and how I give pros a bad name..whatever..you look great and I love the blue on you! So bold…i’ve never done blue on the upper last line.
