Taupe Smokey Eye For Small Eyes

Hey guys, so I wanted to modify this look by MakeupByCheryl, and change it to work better on my small eye shape. I’m not in any way trying to say that I created the look, I’m just recreating the video to demonstrate how I made it flattering for small eyes, and sharing my tips with you.

Here’s my video

Tip: Apply shadows darker than your skin color only on this teardrop shape on the outermost part of your eye. Make sure the inner 1/3 of your eye or the part not within the shape is your skin color or lighter

DIY Peppermint Bark Body Scrub + Labels!

Hi guys! I did another holiday DIY this year and I love how it turned out! This would be a great gift for the holiday season, so I hope you all give it a try, and if you do, send me pictures on facebook, twitter, or instagram!

Here’s my video on how to make it!

Recipe – makes 3 scrubs, 2 cups of scrub each:

6 cups sugar, divided into 2 bowls (use caster or fine sugar for a gentle scrub, and course sugar for a more abrasive scrub)

1 tsp cocoa powder

2 cups grapeseed oil

2 tbsp peppermint extract, or 20 drops essential oil

5-10 drops red food coloring

Decorate with my printable labels, ribbons, and a candy cane!

I look forward to peppermint bark during the holiday season, so I thought it would be a great holiday scent to incorporate, and an easy one too!

Kisses,

Makeup for Glasses!

while I’m not loving the glasses, I love how bright this look is! Regardless if you need or wear glasses at all, this is another really great and easy look for school because it’s brightening and will make you look like you got more sleep. Here’s how I did it, and let me know if you like these videos more than the voiceovers.

skip to 1:36 if you’d like to skip my rambling. This is what I hate about non-voiceovers btw, they’re so long but I love talking when I do my makeup as opposed to being all silent.

Products Mentioned:

NYC Eye Khol/Brow Pencil

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer – Light

Sephora Jumbo Crayon – 05 Beige
