This video was very spur of the moment for me. I usually have my videos planned out at least a week in advance. However, after reading the comments on my last video, I felt like many viewers need more reassurance that makeup really has no rules. If you are new to makeup, or even if you’re not, Youtube can be a great learning tool and source of inspiration. However, I feel it can also inhibit creativity and individuality.
My intention for this video was not to make fun of “Beauty Gurus”. I do most of the things shown myself!! I simply want to express that is is totally OKAY for you to do things differently, or not do certain makeup techniques at all. If you look closely, Youtube and Instagram is different from what you see on many celebrities, red carpets and in magazines. The look is much less “done” and more natural. I hope that eventually the pendulum will swing back to a more realistic representation of beauty that includes a wider variety of looks and techniques instead of the same old, same old.
I hope you enjoy the video and please subscribe for more content like this twice a week!

Mom. Wife. Makeup Artist. Animal Lover. I have been working as a freelance makeup artist since 1996. My first job was with Laura Mercier, and from there I worked for Bobbi Brown, Prescriptives, Chanel, Armani and more. I started this channel with the hopes of sharing my knowledge with others. As a woman in my 40’s, my skin and face are not what they used to be, but that’s ok. I have learned to adapt and adjust the beauty products I use. I hope that my channel with help you with selecting the best products as well, and teach you how to apply your makeup like a pro! If you like my videos, please share them!
