YouTube videos would be awesome!!! I would def watch. I notice that people who do the videos on youtube now have completely flawless skin...no red marks, nothing....what good does that do for me?!?! Although you have fantastic skin too, but you really know what you're doing and how to cover small imperfections. I'm really impressed especially with your concealer/foundation application. I struggle with concealer, so if you do end up making videos, please do a video on that. biggrin.gif

*Apply Olay Regenerist Micropurifying Foaming wash & use Clarisonic

Well, you could show everyone your skincare routine, or different makeup styles or do a haul when you buy cosmetics. You could start anywhere really. Maybe start off with an everyday natural look for girls who don't have alot of time or don't wanna wear alot of makeup. I have trouble mastering the natural look myself. LOL


That's true! I just ordered a shitload from ACW. And a few things from Beauty Ticket. Including a bronzing kit from Lola. Maybe I could start with a natural spring/summer look. Natural I can do. smile.gif Great ideas.. hmm smile.gif

Oh yay! biggrin.gif
Hahaha I totally understand. I'll definitely do some when I am visibly breaking out (if that happens sad.gif) ! But if not, I'll explain how to cover red marks. I had to do it for YEARS so I know. Thanks by the way! I can definitely do a foundation/concealer video. What type of foundation/concealer do you use?

Right now I'm using Neutrogena Skin Clearing Foundation and Clinique Acne Solutions Concealer. Then, I use Clinique Almost Powder. I've used so many foundations. Can't seem to find one that has really good coverage though. My biggest issue right now is all the red marks....they're so frustrating because I can't seem to do a good job covering them up.

Hmmm. Yeah red marks can be really really hard. Is the Clinique concealer liquid, cream, stick? How do you do it? Like do you use your hands/brush/sponge?

right now I have the makeup routine of a middle schooler - brown mascara and gloss. If I feel non-lazy enough to do it haha.
Beth what would you recommend for a school dance? I am a junior in high school and winter formal is coming up soon. In the past years I alternate between a black/grey smokey eye or red lips but this year I want to do something more natural looking. I haven't been wearing much makeup this year so I want to have that "cinderella moment" with my makeup - looking natural but not so obvious like the smokey eyes I usually do.

I have medium red hair, very pale skin, rosy cheeks, brown eyes. Evening out skin is a given, other than that what would you recommend? I pretty much have every makeup imaginable except primer.

later this weekend I will also post a couple makeup looks of my own and you/everyone else can critique it smile.gif

I watched your video and commented. I knew you'd be a natural at it. Hey, when you get all famous I get some of the profits for suggesting you make videos, right? lol.gif You know once you get started and get a following you'll even have companies sending you stuff for free, wanting you to try it out. I see that happen alot on Youtube.

^I like the gurus that actually give HONEST reviews on products, and don't say what the companies what just to keep getting advertisement and free makeup. It's sad how many do that.

Edit: Also, bek, I think you should do more videos. That one was pretty good. Can't wait to see some of your makeup tutorials! sideways.gif I need more makeup ideas lol.

Yeah, I like the honest ones too. And also the ones that actually use drug store alternatives because not everyone can afford high end makeup.

LOL!

School dance ideas:

1. Brown contoured and lined eyes. I would use a light shimmery champagne or silvery pink color all over. Then use a nice chocolate brown or something similar in your crease. Use a silvery pearlescent shadow under your brows and in the corners of your eyes. Use a dark brown pencil on your top lids right above your lash line. If you want to go a little dramatic with the eyes you could do brown on the bottom lash line too. You could also replace the champagne or pink with shimmery gold. They all look pretty. We have a very similar look except my eyes are blue. You could also do the same thing except use dark green eyeshadow/liner. That would make your eyes pop. Green and gold! Wear a sheer berry lip gloss or a coral lipstick.

2. Fairy lips! Do you wear lipstick/ colored gloss? Like would you be comfortable wearing it? I think it would be beautiful if you did a mix between a baby pink and a hot pink lip. You could wear hot pink lipstick (or something similar) and put a shimmery/sheeny light pink over it- in the center of your lips so they look really full. Then you could wear light reflecting eyeshadow and and black cat eye liner- very crisp and clean. It's not smoky but it's still a really beautiful impactful look.


Is any of this up your alley? I am going to stop there unless you want more ideas haha. And yay, can't wait for you to post your makeup looks biggrin.gif

Hahaha famous my butt. I highly doubt it! I definitely would NOT complain though!!! And you would be more than welcome to some of the profits hahaha. Ooooh. If I got a following that would be very exciting. Stoking my hopes up! lol. I'm glad you liked it at least. Next time I will actually do makeup! Ha!

Haha. I'm sure a lot do. It would be pretty tempting but overall it makes the whole thing pretty pointless. It's a facade at that point. And thank you very much! Haha what makeup ideas would you like to see? Like just a general idea? I know a lot of ladies on here don't like a bright lip and I do so stuff like that... I am trying to get a general idea of what people like. wink.gif

Bek, I couldn't quote your comment above for some reason, but the concealer is a liquid. Sometimes I put it on with a brush, but usually get frustrated and use my finger to blend it in better. What do you recommend? Is a cream better than a liquid? I put my foundation on with a brush and love it. That seems to work really well. Do you think a sponge would be better? Sorry to be a bother. Thanks for all your help. At 23 I should know how to apply makeup lol, but I don't.

^the quote problem happened to me in this forum the other day... the page just wouldn't finish loading, I thought it was on my end. Maybe not..

Great video Bek! I commented, obviously lol.gif I'd like to see a base video - foundation, concealer, primer - your skin is sooo perfect looking!

Yay, I'm so glad you're going to do videos now! Your pictures are lovely. You'll definitely have to come down to SoCal and go with me to Sephora. I've got to spend my gift cards, hehe. Btw, have you tried MUFE Full Cover concealer? I've been really wanting to try that one out, and have heard it's one of the best for covering blemishes/red marks.

Here's a pic of my peepers, lol. I love using eye shadows for liner.
