What’s the difference between Oxidizing and Dry Down? Makeup Rulez Ep 9.

Since the new Fenty Beauty line came out, a new word is on every beauty bloggers lips: Dry Down. So what is it and what's the difference between Oxidation and Dry Down? I'm going to tell you!

Some things oxidize easier than others depending on the circumstances. Speaking

Hulk Body Paint Tutorial

Bejeweled Mermaid Makeup Tutorial Today's video is brought to you in part by Sephora #NotSponsored!

Makeup Rulez Episode 2: Should You Bake

Today we'll be going  over how to bake and whether or not you actually should. Should you bake or not depends on a few things: 1. What type of skin you have 2. How much make-up you are applying 3.
