Olive Green Delight :)

I used my coastal scents 88 warm palette today and came up with this olive green smokey eye. I love the contrast of colors. I think the look came out really well. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on the best settings, so I didn't capture the video in 720HD youtube quality....rats!!! But hopefully you can still see the details pretty well. I tried to take some decent photos with my digital camera, but I feel like they didn't come out all that well either... Sounds to me like I need new equipment!!! :) Anyone have any tips on good digital cameras to catch the makeup detail really well?

Ok well I hope you enjoy my video and as always thanks for watching!!!

My Go To Look

So I did a tutorial on my quick look I do pretty much on a daily basis. It's really quick once you get the hang of it and will probably take under 15 minutes. I was really bummed after I spent an HOUR prepping the video for upload and what not and then once I fully had it uploaded to youtube, I find out it got rejected cause the length was too long arrggghh! So I had to edit it and cut things out to try to get it within the 10 minute time frame. Which explains why the video fades in and out a LOT and also is a little choppy at parts. I'm sorry!!!! I had to shrink it to get it to upload.

Anyway I hope this video helps and as always, thanks for watching!!! :)

Ben Nye Look

Hey guys,

It has been sooooo long since I've posted anything or updated my blog!!! AAAAAH. Well I am back and ready to keep posting different looks. Recently I got two makeup gigs!!! I did the bridal party for both weddings. I need to get the photos gathered and up here so you can see how they turned out :)

Right now I am posting a look I created last night using my Ben Nye Luminere palette. I love these colors and don't use this palette enough. I was very tired and kind of out of it so I didn't talk through the video. I just did the techniques and what not and showed you what I used. Hope you enjoy the video. Leave comments if you have any questions or would like to request any looks!

As always, thanks for watching!!!!
