2014 Makeup Favorites

Reaching the end of the year always calls for reflection which usually spawns lists of what we have most loved over the previous 12 months. Some people chat about movies, music or adventures but over here on Amber Rae Beauty, I am all about the cosmetics! I decided to present my makeup favorites to you in a fairly non conventional way (for the YouTube community, at least) and do a quick tutorial using all of the products I most used + loved. What did you love most this past year?

Classic Holiday Red Lip

I planned on doing a voice over for this, however, our family suffered the loss of most adored feline friend + I just can’t bring myself to record something. I have instead used music from a Christmas EP I recorded last year with my boyfriend as the soundtrack + have listed all the products below + in the description box. Please give all your loved ones, both human + furry, lots of hugs, kisses and cuddles and tell them every single day how much you treasure them.

This look is your classic holiday makeup, complete with a long lasting red lip + lots of shine.

Upside Down Blue Smokey Eye

Well that’s a mouthful! This look focuses on a bright blue eyeliner on the lower lashline + features soft definition and cat eye on the upper lid. It’s an unusual but interesting way to wear color on your eyes + a method I like to employ often. You don’t have to have the same products as I do – I am showing you a technique that can be achieved with any colors + products you have! Have fun, be bold. Enjoy!

Wine Lip Pin Up Tutorial

Autumn has finally arrived! I don’t really care how basic my enthusiasm about Fall makes me, I love everything about it – annual apple orchard trips, apple cider, seasonal beers, and most importantly, Fall lip colors. You may remember a month or so back I talked about a Bite Beauty lip color purchase that was begging for cooler weather + crunchy leaves. Well, folks, that time has arrived. I present to you, a Wine Lip Pin Up esque tutorial! A cat eye and well contoured skin comprise the pin up aspect of this look. I used a nude pencil in my waterline to really open up my eyes after applying a cat eye so intense I felt like it needed to be tamed a little bit (but only a little bit!). If you want to see how I achieved this look, please check out my latest video!
