These vlogs are answers to the questions asked in the Ask Anything post. Each vlog is based on a person's question/set of questions. Some are long, some are short and sweet. I'll post the question before the video so you can decide if you want to watch it or not. After the video I'll post any links I mentioned in the video.
Answer Vlog #4
Lea said... I am always in awe of your makeup--it looks fantastic in every picture! Do you have some tips you've amassed? I'd love to hear them!
Some YouTube make-up gurus I love. I've pretty much learned everything I know from these channels.
prettyrainyday < My friend Staci. She's just starting out but well on her way to guru status :)
On all of these, I personally think their earlier videos are much better for beginners. They took the time to teach more of the basics back then. Now many of them do a lot of sponsored make-up looks.
My favorite tip videos:
How To Contour Cheeks | An in depth tutorial
Makeup 101: Complete Guide to Makeup Brushes!!!
MAC Brushes vs Painting Brushes
Makeup 101: How to apply Eye Makeup
Pinup Inspired Makeup
I buy a lot of MAC products, but here are some of my favorite inexpensive brands that have really great products as well!
E.L.F Cosmetics - Really cheap, really awesome. I did a post about some of their products here. You can sometimes find this brand at Target, but you can buy everything they have online.
NYX Cosmetics - I'm just starting to use NYX stuff, but their glitter eyeliner is the greatest. You can get NYX at ULTA.
Coastal Scents - Their duo fiber brushes are really great and waaay cheaper than MAC. Online only.
BH Cosmetics - They have a big selection of inexpensive palettes and brushes. I haven't ordered from them, but I've been eyeing their 88 matte eyeshadow palette. Online only.
Also, if you're ever wanting to know about a new product before you use it check out beautylish.com. It's like the ravelry of the makeup world. People post reviews, videos, photos, and there are forums. I mainly use it for the reviews, but it's a great site for a one-stop shop for make-up info.
I'm also going to do a couple of blogs about my everyday makeup staples and the brushes I use all the time. I'm excited that you want to know about makeup! Can you tell I love it and can't wait to share?
Thanks for all your sweet comments last week!! I really enjoyed making these. I'll have to vlog once a month or something because it's pretty fun :) I've got to stop saying umm so much. I'm sorry about that! The next set is going to be posted on Friday.
