I love makeup. I am NOT a pro by any means, but I do love testing out new products and learning new tricks on how to apply certain products. A lot of you keep asking me to do a makeup tutorial which is very sweet and honestly makes my day to read your kind comments and DM’s. You guys are the reason why I blog and keep doing what I am doing, so it’s encouraging to see that there are real people out there engaging with me. ( So… if you want to comment below or go share some love on my Instagram, I mean… I wouldn’t hate it! haha) No, but seriously, I want to get to know you guys more, so if you have any fun ideas on how I can be more personal and engage with you guys, please let me know!!
Whoops, got a little carried away. Back to what I was saying about the makeup tutorial. To do a makeup tutorial, I need a youtube channel and a particular video camera. Which are two things I do not have, but I am working on it! Setting up a youtube channel is at the top of my TO DO list, and I am starting to save up (hello, newlywed on a budget here) to buy the video camera I need. In the meantime, I wanted to give you guys at least all the details of what makeup products I use. That way, by the time I make my makeup tutorial, you will already have all the products and will be able to apply them along with me! It’s a WIN WIN!
