Inspired By: Tanya Burr

Tanya Burr…she is so many things! YouTuber, Author, Creator (of her own Lip Glosses, Nail Polishes + False Lashes) + All Around Lovely Human. Aside from being a talented makeup artist, Tanya is also one of the sweetest people that I feel like I am best friends with even though I have never met her. She is genuine, humble + hardworking. Just a few reasons why it was a total no-brainer doing a makeup look inspired by her.

I have been tossing the idea around lately of doing a YouTuber inspired series. A lot of the ladies I watch on YouTube have very different and distinct makeup styles and I am constantly drawing inspiration from them. Tanya is all about having a flawless base, glowy cheeks and eyes + glossy lips. It is effortless and youthful, simple but stunning. I hope you enjoy this look, let me know if you’re interested in more YT inspired looks! Also, side note, my hair was air drying while filming and the lighting isn’t great, I hope it all isn’t too distracting! xo

Date Night Makeup

For this look, I practiced what I preach…I was bold + went outside my comfort zone! I was watching a Jaclyn Hill tutorial recently + she was wearing lashes by a brand called Lashes by Lena. They. Were. STUNNING! On JH’s big, beautiful eyes they looked so soft and lush. And there was a coupon code. Queue  me racing to the website to buy my very own pair of Bianca style lashes. In the box, they don’t look like anything insane. But on my tiny eyes, oh honey! They are a commitment. I was shocked when I applied them. I was tempted to take them off but then I thought, screw it, let’s just finish off the look + see how I feel. And let me tell you, I ended up loving them. I wore them for the rest of my day, including a stare-filled trip to the grocery store (they don’t bite, people!). Once I trimmed them to fit my eye size, they were great. But every time I looked down, I could definitely notice them on my eyes + I could feel them. Maybe it’s just my inexperience with lashes, who knows, but I will definitely be pulling them out for special occasions in the future.

In addition to a big, fluttery lash I went for glowy skin, cause who doesn’t want that?! Using light infusing primers, a damp sponge + cream products help to accomplish a lovely, healthy dewiness. For the lips I chose an insanely long wearing liquid lipstick by Stila in the shade Beso. You can easily adapt the look + use whatever colors your heart desires!
