Hi all! Earlier in December I posted a Snow White look using Polyvore! Here’s the image to remind you:
Snow White is one of my favorite fairy tales; especially the Brother’s Grimm version. To me, Snow White’s story is a lesson that beauty isn’t everything. The Grimm version talks about how the Wicked Queen tried to kill Snow White three times (four if you count her sending the Huntsman after her). Yet, the story ends with promise of love for Snow White and her new prince. However, did anyone ever think of what happened to the Wicked Queen after Snow White awoke from her deep sleep?
Anyways, I decided to film a brief video of my demonstration of this Snow White look. This is my first makeup tutorial and I wanted to include a voice over but my iPhone audio file did not want to work with Camtastia. So, instead, I just stuck with some nice music and pretty banners.
Whew! It’s the beginning of a new year and this year I want to focus more on creating better videos. Today, I want to share my three favorite Mary Kay products for this month.
1: Mary Kay Foundation Primer: Primers are my beauty must haves! My typical beauty routine includes at least three (face, eyes, lips) but sometimes I branch out and include an eyelash primer and under eye primer when I’m in the mood. Primers are an essential part of your makeup routine. I’m not saying you have to use all of the ones I mentioned but using a face primer should be a must. Primers help your makeup last longer as you wear them throughout the day. They keep your foundation from seeping into your pores and down your face or keep those annoying crease lines from your eyeshadow off your eyelids.
What do I like about Mary Kay’s Foundation Primer? Two things. I’m really picky about my primer and since I already have oily skin, I don’t like using primers that feel more like a lotion than a gel. The MK Foundation Primer is an excellent gel and provides a silky texture to your skin, making applying the foundation after much easier. The second thing I like is that this primer isn’t tinted. Tinted? Yup, I have at least three primers in my drawer that have a yellow tint to them and I’m not sure what that’s all about. This somehow is an issue for me so I’m glad to find a primer that has no color (white, yellow, green, etc.).
2: Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush: Exfoliating does wonders to your skin. It helps remove all the build up that your makeup and face cleansers have been leaving behind. This Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush is outstanding as it exfoliates the skin in a gentle, relaxing way. I love that this brush is also quiet. Having a loud, vibrating brush in my face isn’t appealing to me because it makes me feel like I’m in a car wash….just waiting for the big blow dry finish. However, this brush is quiet and gentle which makes it feel more like getting a facial and less like a car wash.
3: Mary Kay Liquid Eyeliner Pen: The cat eye look is back! I remember trying to master the cat eye back in high school (early freshman year). I didn’t quite master it then but I’d say with this tool in my back pocket I am getting much better. I love that this pen has a pointed tip and is firm enough that I have control over my line strokes.
I hope you consider trying at least one of these outstanding projects. Stay tuned, next week I plan on showing you a trick I use when creating the cat eye look (and yes, I will be using MK’s Liquid Eyeliner Pen).
