TUTORIAL: CINDERELLA Disney Princess Elegant Makeup

Image
Hello Everyone, 
For my Halloween Tutorials is this week is Disney week. I'm re-doing the main Disney Princesses this year in HD and with better makeup design, This has been requested & I feel it needs to be better due to last year I was battling illness when I was filming them! 
So 5th up on the re-make list is Cinderella
The girl with the glass slipper & never giving up on her dreams, Cinderella has a very soft and fairytale look about her especially in that famous ballgown dress, she wears for the dance with the Prince. I combined this look and the end scene of her wedding look together to create this beautiful enchanting Cinderella Makeup.

Hello Everyone, 
The 3rd look for my Halloween season of Makeup Tutorials and it's very fantasy based and "angel" like in style this is the moon gypsy! This moon gypsy dancers around the moon and is enchanting under the moonlight some would also say she's the "child of the moon" :) This is very light makeup using lots of blue, sliver and white as those are the colors of then enchanting moon in the night sky.

TUTORIAL: SPIDER QUEEN / WITCH Halloween Makeup

Image
Hello Everyone, 
The 2nd look for my Halloween Season of Makeup Tutorials (and embracing my fear) it's time to get a little creepy with my Spider Queen / Witch Gothic Makeup look. My sister Sonja had asked for this, her idea too! So I designed the makeup and put it together. This look is focusing completely on Spiders and lots of them. The look itself is dark & mysterious, using lots of dark plums and reds etc to complete this look and give it it's deadly attraction. ;)

TUTORIAL: Fairy / Dragonfly Mystic Inspired Makeup

Image
Hello Everyone, 
The 1st Halloween themed Makeup Look for 2012 & it's fairy time :) I wanted to do something fairy garden-ish inspired for this year and this is perfect for those that love glitter and lots of it. This is not your typical pink all over fariy as I really wanted something a little different to the normal and something that you can add or change up what you will for yourself :)

FYI: I have combination skin and acne prone skin too

TUTORIAL: Nude Eyes & Bold Lips Makeup Look

Image
Hello Everyone, 
So in a few of my last videos I uploaded, a lot had commented that they 
1. like my new hair style and 2. my makeup style is well which is very netural and girly based. This makeup look I have worn everyday for the last 2-3 weeks, only just changing the lip color, which really can change the look again but leaving the eyes just enhanced and pretty.

FACE OF THE DAY - Casual Smoke!

Image
Hello Everyone, 
It's funny when I woke up this morning I thought to do a causal makeup look, nothing to much and instead of what I had planned to do a nude eye I did a smokey eye! Now this was not to heavy handed on the black to make it a nighttime look, but still intense enough. I blended the dark blue and black together on the outta corner to create this really nice defined eye that really makes the eyes stand out and looks beautiful.




Keeping the eyeshadow light (neutral) on the main part of the eyelid and darker on the outta corner really gives you 2 illusions 1. Your eyes look a little larger and brighter then normal 2. Makes your eyes look more even shaped and the color of your eye is brighter. I kept the lips very simple not to over power the eyes, added some contouring with bronzer and added a healthy blush color. So what did I use to make this look possible? find out bellow.....:)

Makeup Used: FACE: Garnier BB Cream for Combination/Oily Skin Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in 100…
