This is my first post in a VERY long time, but now that my little one is almost two, I feel ready to get back to my blog and share my fav finds, design inspirations and all things TRES CHIC!
Lately I’ve been browsing YouTube before bed, watching makeup tutorials and getting up-to-date on the latest beauty buzz (e.g. lips a la Kylie Jenner, contouring, strobing and baking – makeup, not cookies). Although not all of these looks are for me, I am obsessed with the videos and their dramatic before and afters! Currently these YouTube beauty mavens are my Top Three in heavy rotation:
I was drawn to Stephanie Lange’s tutorials because she has cool toned skin like mine with pink undertones. Foundation shades that match my skin are super hard to find, as most are too yellow. So I figured I’d get some color tips and product recommendations from Ms. Lange! This professional makeup artist from Australia loves Guns N’ Roses and Chanel (nice combo!), does an amazing job of camouflaging redness and acne, and she is super fun to watch!
Stephanie posts new videos three times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri). Here’s one of my favs, Flawless Foundation Routine:
Nikkie de Jager’s video The Power of MAKEUP! recently went viral and gained this makeup artist from the Netherlands a huge following. I love watching this down-to-earth glam girl (those are hard to come by!) and her user friendly techniques. Even Stepahnie Lange is a fan!
Nikkie posts new videos twice a week (Wed, Sun). Now check out why The Power of MAKEUP! has 21 million views and counting:
Bringin’ it back state-side, Carli Bybel is a Jersey girl and Megan Fox look alike (hello gorgeous!). This professional makeup artist has been my go-to for contouring techniques and drugstore makeup finds. Her home-based “Beauty Room” where she films is unreal (and there’s a video about it)! Carli jet sets between New Jersey and L.A. and blogs about fashion as well as makeup.
Check out one of my fav videos from Carli, How to Contour & Highlight | Drugstore Update:
