Monkey See, Monkey Do

It’s safe to assume that if you follow my blog, you’re a beauty blogger/YouTuber addict just like me. I spend an exorbitant amount of my life watching other people apply makeup, chat about products they love + live their lives (who else is devastated that Vlogmas is over?!). One of my all time favorites is Jaclyn Hill, a makeup artist known for her love of a cat eye, smoking out that lower lash line + having a bold personality. I love her. I think she is insanely talented, so down to earth, honest + hilarious. That being said, when she posted her NYE look I knew I had to give it a shot, even though it intimidated me!

One of the coolest parts of makeup is seeing how a look progresses, how it can go from looking like a sloppy mess to a work of art with a blending brush + some patience. I wanted to share my recreation of Jaclyn’s look with you guys! I didn’t film it, but I can if you’d like! I wore this on NYE + absolutely loved it. I’ve never done a double liner before but honestly, it was so easy!

Who are your favorite YouTubers? I am always looking for more talented people to inspire me!

Alos, if you aren’t following me on other forms of social media, DO IT!

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.
