Make up! I got hooked about a month ago. I randomly happened upon a NikkieTutorials video and I found a whole new world. I had heard of YouTube Beauty Gurus, but I’d never actually watched a video. Let me tell you something they’re addicting! I would spend at least three hours a night watching these Gurus. It’s a never ending stream of beauty. By watching these videos my make up game greatly improved. I couldn’t believe what a difference their simple tips and tricks made. My favorite tip of all was contouring!
Contour & Highlight
Contouring is one of my favorite makeup techniques. It allows you to enhance your face shape. There are two different ways to contour: cream and powder. Personally, I’m a little high maintenance so I like to do both! Always start with the cream first, then set it with the powder. I use NYX Wonder Stick as my cream contour and Benefit Watt’s Up as my cream highlight. These products are both easy to blend, which is probably the most important thing to look for when buying cream makeup. My biggest tip I can give is to BLEND, BLEND, BLEND! Having dark lines across your face is not cute! Next I use Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit as my powder contour. I mainly use the two middle shades. The darker color goes over my cream contour and the light color goes over my cream highlight. Finally, I like to dust on a little blush to pull it all together. My favorite blush of the moment is Laura Geller Baked Blush in Berry Trifle. Blush is the perfect final blender to contour. These products and techniques will give you a flawless face.
“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up just a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible with destiny” -Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel, one of the Queens of Classiness, believed make up was important. Make up is an essential part of every classy woman’s style. Whether you just throw on a little mascara or put on a full face of makeup, own it! If you feel beautiful you’ll be ready for your date with destiny!
