TUTORIAL: Rock of Ages - 80's Glam Rock Chic

Hello Everyone, 
Today I'm doing a look inspired by the movie Rock of Ages, it's set in the late 80's & that's what inspired my Glam 80's Rock Chic Look, using one of my favorite songs from Bon Jovi at the end, this look really comes alive. 
For the look it's self I wanted to layer many colors together this gives it a different effect,making it look not as it seems, but a little more unique. For this lips & face I've kept that a little more on the soft (natural) side. You can Darken this look even more if you want a more grunge finish. :)
FYI: This is a fantastic look for going out or dressing up for a party!

BLOG LOOK: Outfit of the Day & Makeup of the Day

Hello Everyone, 
I have a quick blog today about my OOTD & MOTD. This is requested a lot for me to-do, so I thought I would start blogging a bit more here & there on my favorite outfits I like to wear the makeup I wear with them.
So I will start with the OOTD 1st up.......
So everything I'm wearing is from Forever 21, I actually got this outfit as a early birthday gift & I loved it at 1st sight, LOL :)
The top is made of 3 colored stripes, Matte Black, Glitter Gold & Sliver. it's tapered at the bottom of the top & at the sleeves. On the left side there is also a mini pocket. 
I love the feel of this jumper style as it's a little opened weaved & light enough not to be to warm & heavy feeling.
My very Barbie pink Jeans are also from Forever21 & have pockets on the back & front, it's light wearing and easy to move in, not much restriction......the buttons are cream in color so they blend in well & it's a light wearing jeans too.

TUTORIAL: Wonder Woman Makeup Look

Hello Everyone, 
Today we have a really special Themed look for you all today.....It's WONDER WOMAN! 
I really wanted to do her look as it's very iconic & I love the whole look & style for a female superhero. 
So with the eye makeup & lips ETC I wanted to combine it with the costume/outfit (which I got from BuyCostumes.com) so it would look complete as a look but not OVER the TOP. This is pretty but still bold looking. You can make this look darker or lighter to fit your personal liking.

OMG, YouTube Partnership Anniversary XD

Last Year (a few days ago) I became a YouTube Partner I still remember how excited I was when I got my email at a round 9pm that night, I was so overwhelmed it meant a lot to me that I was accepted, it gave me a great feeling of achievement. 
Since that humble day my video quality is now in HD 99% of the time, My subscribers & followers have grown and the Views too......I have a gained a great amount of loyal people that are not only a number in a subscribers list but my friends too. They really appreciate my work & effort (time) I take doing my videos & I always try to answer back on there (all of) the Comments or Questions I get. You give me so much back in return for all the work & money I put in too my Beauty Channel & I truly love that side of my work as it's the best job to me in the world....& Thanks to you all I'm still doing it today and will be for many years to come bigger & better but still always being ME, that will never change!

REVIEW & DEMO: Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup Foundation (Tutorial)

Hello Everyone, 
I promised I was going to review this foundation so I have been testing it out for a little while, with & without primer underneath, & seeing how it wears though out the day which for me are always busy......I was also asked by some subscribers to do Demo's of how I apply the foundation. I have done that this time & if it's really liked I will continue to do so for future foundation reviews. :)
