TUTORIAL: Christmas Makeup Look 2012 - Cozy Cashmere

Hello Everyone, 
Christmas is coming in only a few little weeks it will be here, there are so many things about the Christmas/ Holiday time that make me so happy. It's a true time for spending it with Family & Friends, decorating your home to make it cheerful, getting the "feast" all planned and ready for the big day, shopping for all the gifts to be given to loved ones. Yes there's a lot that Christmas holds in tradition for those that celebrate it. For me personally Christmas is a big deal and I love the season. 
But there is one thing that is also important to me and that is my Makeup look for the Season, I like to change the look & feel each year and make it different.
SO My Christmas Makeup Tutorial /Look for this year is here :) I really was inspired by the colors of Cinnamon & Chocolate for this look, which made it feel very Warm and Cozy as well as being neutral.

Haircare Products & Routine!

Hello Everyone,
My latest video is looking at my current Hair Care Routine and the products that have been either a life saver to my hair or have really worked well the keep my Hair Color really vibrant as I dye my Hair. My hair is also combination (just like my skin) My roots are oily were as my ends are dry so this routine I have found really helps balance out both problems as well as a few more!

Something New!

Hello Everyone,
It's been a while since I have just posted a post, if that made any sense what so ever, LOL?!
Okay but there is some little news bits that I know most of you will already know but hey it's worth saying it anyways....Right! 
I have a 2nd channel now for my Vlogging and other things that I'm going to be adding there that ARE NOT Beauty related, I've been wanting to do this for sometime and when I asked if you'd like that I got a good enough response back, to set up the 2nd channel and start posting there too! 
Now just to make it clear Alwayscosmeticjunkie my MAIN channel stays my main channel always and my main place to source my videos, as I am first and for most a Makeup Artist :) 
But for a little and different creative outlet I really wanted the 2nd channel.

So if you'd like to know more about what is coming to my Vlog Channel which is call EricaTVlog then this is my Intro video, where you'll hear about what's coming soon!!


Hello Everyone,
It was requested by a few of my Lovely Subscribers to show how to do the "sock bun" hair style. I love this hair style I think it's just perfect for work, formal dressing or if you need to do something nice with day 2 old hair then this is my perfect go to hair look.

Hello Everyone,
So here's my 1st Tutorial using the Naked Palette (original one). I brought both UD Naked Palettes about a week ago now, and I had promised to share some looks using these palettes.
