Have you ever been to an event and looked around the room thinking “How does everyone have such perfect makeup on?” I do, frequently. I know I have said on this blog that I have always wondered how to do my makeup. What products do I buy? Do brushes matter? What is the difference between foundation and concealer? So I finally put an end to my questions and decided to explore the internet frontier, Youtube Beauty Vloggers.
Enter, Jaclyn Hill. I feel like I don’t even need to write anything else because I find all of her tutorials amazing. The first video I watched of her’s was the Foundation Routine tutorial. I was able to follow along, learn how to buff (who knew) and achieve the flawless makeup look that I always wanted. (Watch out wedding receptions, I’m feeling like Beyonce!) A few more of my favorite videos include this, this and this.
Now onto my makeup wishlist. I’m jumping on the palette bandwagon and I would love to get a Naked Eye Palette by Urban Decay. My friend Alexandria’s eye makeup at Diner En Blanc last week was AMAZING and I would like to get the same affect. Now, I know contouring was big this entire year. Some say its here to stay, other outlets I have read said contouring is on its way out. Regardless, I think having a small kit would let me achieve that look for special events or nights out. A blender brush has been on my mind recently. (Has anyone used one? Let me know what you think!) The Real Techniques price point is up my ally. I will be buying it very soon! Finally, I do not own a lot of nude nail polish. I have seen a lot of Deborah Lippmann polishes recommended for brides and I have made it my quest to find one or two for a home pedicure. What are some of your fall beauty wishlist items?
