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! What is Oxidizing? Let's start with an oldie but goodie. What does oxidation mean? Scientifically, oxidation is when a molecule, atom, or ion loses electrons. So for something to oxidize the oxidation state has to rise. To give an example that actually makes sense, think of an apple turning brown or a pipe rusting. Some things oxidize easier than others depending on the circumstances. Speaking

Hulk Body Paint Tutorial

So this Hulk body paint tutorial has an interesting begining... My first attempt at the Hulk looked more like a pop art zombie than a comic book character lol. Luckily for you guys... well me really, I'm stubborn as hell and I can't let things go. It also goes to show that "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again" is actually pretty accurate, even for art. So before I give you some tips for this Hulk body paint tutorial, here's a little about the "other guy". Who is the Hulk? The hulk is proof that you can have brains

Bejeweled Mermaid Makeup Tutorial

Bejeweled Mermaid Makeup Tutorial

Bejeweled Mermaid Makeup Tutorial Today's video is brought to you in part by Sephora #NotSponsored! Just Kidding... well about the sponsored part anyway... kinda, mostly because Sephora only pays me when I work in their stores. Anyway, we had a Sephora Collection event, and our managers wanted us to have a bright summer look. That was my inspiration! As you can see, no where in this beautiful look does she glue a bunch of rhinestones to her face, but I'm a little extra like that. Besides, this look plus my hair just screams mythical creature. So without further adieu, here's the

Do Eyebrow Shapes Matter? Makeup Rulez: Episode 4

So following the same kind of idea of my original "Makeup Rulez" video, I wanted to talk to you about eyebrows and do eyebrow shapes matter in the long run. We all know that eyebrows are super important. Don't believe me? Check out celebrities without eyebrows and tell me if brows aren't important. They truly are the frame of the face. And what good is a beautiful picture without a complimentary frame? Do eyebrow shapes matter? So what am I squaking about in this video? All eyebrows do not need, or should, look the same. And I'm not talking about the eyebrows

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. What kind of look you are going for. Now, if you have very dry skin (especially under the eyes) or more mature skin, baking might now be for you.  The reason for this is because powders tend to suck up moisture. If you're already starting off dry, that's a disaster waiting to happen. As we mature our skin tends to dry out, so- I'm sorry ladies-

Makeup Rulez Episode 1: Is Makeup Art?

Is Makeup Art

So the first video I wanted to put out is more of a discussion- Is Makeup art? There's many of differing views on that one, depending on if you're a pro or an enthusiast. Personally I don't think it's a simple yes or no answer. Makeup is art, yes, because you have to be creative to a point, but you also have to have a critical eye to be good at it. So Is Makeup Art? My only real issue with the is makeup art argument is that many people who say yes it is, don't realize that art is subject to

Suicide Squad: Katana Body Paint and Background

Today I bring you a Katana body paint tutorial! "But why not Harley Quinn", you ask? Because I've done 4 of her all ready, but I do plan on doing tutorials for the rest of the squad between now and Halloween. It's just gonna take a bit of planning, and some bald caps. So why Katana first? Because her backstory is pretty freaking cool, and I love learning about new characters that don't get too much of the spotlight *cough* Guardians of the Galaxy *cough*. I'm also super proud of how the jacket came out. Last time I attempted a jacket
