Halloween Makeup Tutorial

TGIF - the Halloweekend is finally here! I'm sure you have some amazing things lined up for yourselves and I can't wait to hear all about them come Sunday morning. I myself am "Hocus Pocus n' Chill" ing this evening to save my strength for the main event tomorrow, but wanted to share this with you all!

Presenting, my Halloween costume: A Fashion Skeleton. (Or, what I wear on a typical night out, but with a painted face ...well I guess technically, my face is usually painted anyway, just not like a skeleton.) This is a great choice for those of y'all who STILL haven't figured what you're going to wear to your parties that start in a matter of hours - dress in chic black from H2T and pick up an inexpensive makeup kit at the Halloween store. Guarantee it'll be on clearance. Then - watch this quick tutorial vid below:

There you have it. About 90% Skeleton, 10% Dia De Los Muertos inspired - didn't want to veer too far into cultural appropriation. Though I WILL be making Pan de Muerto this weekend to celebrate on Sunday. So stay tuned for that! Alright, enough from me - I have some witches brew to drink and some Sanderson sisters to watch. Happy Halloweekend! x

Strobing: Your New Favorite Summer Makeup

So, I've been back on the east coast a mere few days, and it already has me California dreamin' for that desert climate that I've come to love. Luckily, the hot and humid weather is no match for my new favorite makeup.

Presenting: Strobing. Aka - the anti-contouring. You may have seen my contouring video in the past - and that's still a great look for a night out. Or the cooler months. But nothing goes better with the sticky weather than this dewy, fresh looking face. Check it out:

PS, heres the full list of products I used in the video (click each name for the link to purchase): Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint, YSL Touche Eclat Pen, Laura Mercier Radiance Highlighter, and of course my DIY Rosewater Toner. So give this a try, I bet you'll love it.

How to Contour Your Face. Like a Man.

TGIF. The weekend is finally here. And to kick it off right - I thought I'd share with you a little something funny that Nick & I have been working on the last couple days. Introducing our first-ever Vlog.

Ever wanted to know how to straighten out your crooked nose? Give yourself the cheekbones of a supermodel? Or (like me) downplay your Rihanna-sized forehead? Enter the magic of Contour. I guess the jig is up here - my skin isn't really so flawless. But you knew that, right?

Either way. Check out this little video below and let us know what you think. You can subscribe to our YouTube page, and find our new videos, which we plan to post each week!

Products used include Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield, Dermalogica Sheer Tint, Smashbox Step-by-Step Contour Trio, Laura Mercier Radiance Primer, and Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray. (Click each name for a link to buy!)

I hope you all liked this silly little vid - and I can't wait for you to see what else we have in store! Comment below and let me know what you liked, what I can do to improve, or just to tell me how hilarious and adorable I am. Better yet. Do it on YouTube. Or both. Happy Friday!
