Cool Toned Makeup Tutorial for Dark Skin

COOL TONED MAKEUP FOR DARK SKIN

Hey Guys! As a darker skinned woman, I know it can be challenging to find ways to work a cool toned makeup look and rock it.   So I did what I always do when I have trouble with something makeup related: I figured it out, and decided to show you how.  I wanted to do this look based on MAC Stone lipstick, so it was about finding an eye look to go with it, that could add something to the look without overwhelming the lip.  Duochrome works perfectly for warm skintones because the color is multidimensional!  Since MAC Blue Brown pigment is duochrome it is a cool color, but it also has warm dimensions that allow it to pair well with my skin and also with the lip!  This is a really high glam look, so I hope you are ready for a treat 🙂

dewy skin for oily skin

Hi guys! I hope you all have had an awesome week 🙂 I wanted to come on and do a super glowy, almost dewy look for girls with oily skin because I am one! I always love the dewy look and have finally figured out how to nail dewy skin, but with a matte finish.  This summer glow makeup tutorial is super easy and will leave you looking bronzed and sunkissed in no time, flat.

I decided to leave the highlight and contour tutorial out, since I just filmed one and it is literally exactly the same:

How to Wash Makeup Brushes so they’re good as new!

Hey guys!

So I thought I would do super quick post about how I clean my makeup brushes! I love for my brushes to be good as new after every wash, and it took me a while to find the perfect technique so I figured others could benefit from a post like this one!

 

 

basis bar soap

I use a sensitive skin soap bar, fragrance free of course, lukewarm water and a plastic bowl.  This method is quick and easy and only requires the bar soap and the water!

 

Here’s the step by step:

 

First, dip the brush into the bowl of lukewarm water.

Then, using the bar of soap in a similar way you would use the palm of your hand, move the brush around on the soap.

Add more water when you experience heightened friction.  When the foam runs white, your brushes are clean!

Rinse thoroughly, shape, and lay down to dry.

Make sure you don’t sit them up in the cups until they excess water has completely drained or you could risk damaging the glue that holds your brushes together.

 

how to wash makeup brushes

Every other week or so, a light oil added to this routine will condition and soften your brushes for smooth and scratch free application every time!  I am very particular about the brushes I use for eye and liquid products so I tend to wash those at least once a week.

 

How do you wash your makeup brushes?
