August Favorites!
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Welp it’s that time of the month again, my favorite products of the month. What may be a long and drawn out list for some of the other bloggers and vloggers on YouTube is usually condensed into only a few products for me because let’s be real – I’m SUPER picky!

 

E.L.F. Powder Brush
What’s labeled as a powder brush is actually amazing for foundation!!! Seriously! And it was only a dollar too! GIRL yes. You read that correctly. I have yet to use this for powder, I don’t really use buffer brushes too much but this stuff for my tinted moisturizers and foundations, good Lord!

 

LA Splash Cosmetics
I’m going to add this entire brand to my list of favorites for the month, simply because they offer an amazing range of well-pigmented products at a STUPIDLY cheap price. You guys know I’m glitter obsessed; my interest in LA Splash has been piqued for about a year now, I just never got around to ordering their stuff until last month. I’m SO glad I did! They have every shade of glitter you can think of, which are also cosmetic grade. And their pigments aren’t too shabby also!!

Diamond Dust in Premium

Pineapple Coral Glitter

Another amazing product is their Splash Sealer. This is THE adhesive you need to keep that glitter on your eyes and off the rest of your face. It’s amazing with glitter products!

 

The Diamond Dust powders are $8.99 each, the Splash Sealer $6.99 (which STAYS sold out by the way, so if you get your hands on it, buy it, buy 3!), and the glitters will run you about $6.99 each. I love coming across brands that aren’t really well-known but offer amazing products for a fraction of the price. LA Splash does much justice for all us struggling artists yo!

 

That’s all I’ve got for this month guys. Sidenote: funny enough after I recorded this video I thought of a few more favorites popped up in my head that I didn’t think to include, but it’s all good. There’s always next month :) Stay tuned! Happy Sunday lovers!

Recreating a look from the beautiful baby girl again. This time from her Try Again music video. This was when we really began to see Aaliyah break out into edgier looks. You don’t get to see much detail of her makeup in this video so I did my best to work with the little bit of it I could see.

Aaliyah Rock The Boat Inspired Makeup
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


 

 

As announced on my YouTube channel this month I will be paying tribute to the late Aaliyah Dana Haughton by creating some of my favorite makeup looks of hers. I’m starting this series off with my absolute favorite Aaliyah song, Rock The Boat.

I chose to recreate her icy blue shadow in the scene where she’s dancing in front of a green screen with her dancers

YAY for celebrity inspired look and the NAKED Palette!

RIP Baby girl <3
