Tutorial: Smokey Eye With Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette

I cannot get enough of this palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills.  All the colors are up my alley, it literally is my go-to palette at the moment.  I've created everyday looks to dark smokey makeups such as this tutorial that I am sharing with all of you today.

I was looking through all of my tutorials and it seems like I haven't done a dark smokey one in awhile plus I haven't done a YouTube tutorial FOREVER! I do apologize for the lack of videos, but remember you can always follow me on Instagram.  I guess the reason why I hate making videos is because I always get stuck on what to show you guys! BLAH! Plus I hate editing, it's more of a love/hate relationship.

Anyways, lets get back to to the look.

This is how the palette looks, the colors are pretty right?

Here is a close-up of my face with all the products that I used to create the look.

If you don't have a frosted white eye shadow in your makeup collection you need one! White instantly opens up the eyes.  Take a look at my

Spring/Summer Trend look here

where I use white eye shadow on my lid.

Did you see the cute VILLABEAUTIFFUL customized compact by Case Envy? I am so in love and I handle it with care when I use it.  Ev, really took care of me and wanted to make sure I was happy with my compact.  She went above and beyond to make sure it was exactly what I wanted.  So pleased to have done business with her.  She's amazing.

I love anything Rose Gold so when I was sent these beautiful beautiful brushes from

LuxieLush

, I was in heaven!!! These are the brushes that I used to create this look in my video.  You get 12 brushes for eyes and lips with the brush cylinder case - a full set to complete a full makeup look.  The brushes are super soft and made very well. I always feel guilty using these brushes because they are just too pretty to use!

Just wanted to post this real quick for all of you.  I knew the new UD Naked 3 Eye Shadow Palette would be popular but I didn't know it would this BIG! I really like this palette because it's still has your neutral tones but with a little more color like the pink hues.  For those of you wanting to get some inspiration for an everyday look (I know some of you might not think this is an everyday look, but you have the choice to make it less dramatic) with the palette watch my tutorial below!

Tutorial: Get Ready With Me Soft Smokey Purple Cat Eye

I recently changed my hair color and I am so happy I did!  I grew out my hair for my wedding and 2 days after I cut it back to my short hair.  I love short hair, but I do wish at times I had long hair to curl it like those celebrities. :D  Do you bored with your hair and always want change? I do! I get bored easily.  Instead of changing the cut I just change the color, thanks to my good friend/stylist Thuy from 44th Street Salon.  She has been my stylist now for over a year and has been a very good friend.  She even did my hair for my wedding, I wouldn't want anyone else to do it but her. I'm thinking about doing some hair tutorials for short hair.  Just some ways that I do my hair for the short Bob sporting ladies. :D It's hard to know what to do with your hair! 

Thuy gave me some magenta highlights right in the front and I wanted to do something that will really compliment the hair.  At first I wanted to do all purple but then that's way too much purple going around.  I decided on MAC Sable Eyeshadow has a lid color and then added some additional colors to define and darken.  

This is my favorite look! It just blends so nicely together!

I think the lashes really give the eye makeup more detail.  

I thought they would be too long when I first saw them but 

look how great they turned out!

I always get asked to get a clean edge when doing a cat eye/arabic eye. 

Use scotch tape! Yes Genius!

Tutorial/Get Ready With me - Shimmer Rose Makeup with MAC Rose Pigment

Last weekend I was cleaning out my makeup collection and I came across MAC Rose Pigment.  I totally forgot about this color and I remember it use to be one of my favorite pigments.  It is a beautiful pinkish golden infused pigment.  I really wanted to use this color for a tutorial since I need to add some "colorful" looks for my Youtube channel.

I have been getting so many requests for more videos.  I give a lot of credit to the beauties who can produce and edit a couple of videos a week and at the same time be able to manage everyday life.  It's like a 2nd job to blog, film, and post.  I recently made a schedule for myself - every Thursday 1 YouTube tutorial and at least a couple times a week for posts.  So far I've been able to do this without any problems.   It's such a great feeling getting so much support from you guys, I appreciate it so much! It really makes me want to do more and more, and I am working so hard to give you guys what you want! :) So instead of video where I talk the whole time I might as well do a "getting ready with me" makeup video.  At least you can see how I achieve a full look.  The speed is pretty fast but you can pretty much see all the steps that I am doing. I am interested how you guys like this ...
