No Make Up, Make Up Look

The other day I filmed a video of a very casual make up look. I decided to call it the “No Make Up, Make Up Look”. But once I was done filming I didn’t like the way everything turned out.

1st. The concealer I use on a daily basis has stopped doing its trick. After applying the product numerous times, I could still see slight discoloration. On a daily basis I use the ELF Tone Correcting Concealer in Spice. I have recently learned that this product is only suppose to cancel out discoloration not really conceal.

2nd. The product I used to highlight also gave me trouble. For highlighting I like to use the Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer. Like all drugstore products it came in light, light/medium and medium. I bought the light/medium thinking it would be for highlighting the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow and the under eye area. WELL... when it was time to use this product under my eye, it just made my face look ashy on and off camera. SO off camera I ended up having to correct things and then continue filming. Also when I tried to use it to highlight the bridge of my nose and my cupids bow it just would not blend the right way (I used my finger, thinking the heat would help).

I would like to try and re film this tutorial because I think it would be a lot of help to people who are new to make up and want to start small but I can’t find the right products to help with this tutorial.

I was thinking about trying a tinted moisturizer with this tutorial as well because a tinted moisturizer is suppose to give less coverage than foundation. 

I guess over the next few days I’ll try a couple different things.

P.S. be on the look out for my Mac Pro Long Wear Foundation/Concealer Tutorial.

Current Obession

As you all know this year I will be 21. And I am so excited. I dont think anything will change besides be legally able to buy my own liquor and I guess it opens up a whole list of clubs and bars I can go to lol (I’m not really a bar person).

But I have decided that I am going to buy myself a Chanel Bag. And not the smaller version I got for Christmas. I am going all out. I have decided I want a Maxi or Jumbo RED Chanel. Yes ladies Red. Because I will be 21 I want something that stands out and not the classic style. I need something young and  fun lol. I’ll leave the classic style for 25 lol.

Long story short I went to the mall the other day and I say this women with the gorgeous Chanel bag and of course I thought this is the perfect one for me. It’s unusual its got a great summer color and it’s not the classic style so 



I want it in a Coral, Red but I wanted to provide general pictures of the bag itself
