Smokey Teal Glitter Eye Tutorial

Hey Guise,
I've complete my second tutorial! So excited and it was a total blast to shoot. I decided to do a smoky teal eye because I've always loved the teal color but never knew how exactly to wear it. Like usual I just started grabbing my brushes and tools and figured out this easy beautiful look.

This look is very alluring and very girly. I decided to pair the lip with a pale pinkish brown lip and soft rose coral cheek. Its a fierce eye with surrounding soft features. In this tutorial I decided to try some speed up and slow down effects in certain areas so please let me know what you think worked and what you think didn't. I appreciate your views and your opinons. Listed below are all the products I used to achieve the look.

Kpop Song of The Week..

Hey Beauty Otaku's,

Sorry this is late!
The Kpop song of this week goes to Lee Hi's Rose. When I really like a song I replay like crazy and this song is in heavy rotation at home and at work. Lee Hi's last two hits have had a jazzy cute girl vibe that I dug and it was a fresh image in the kpop scene which I appreciated; then came Rose. Her voice is crystal clear with emotion and warning.. you dont want none of this. The beat and lyrics are beautiful  and I love Lee Hi's voice so much more when its laid over a non-jazzy song. The video for the song is a work of art and her changing makeup and hair are on point. Please checkout the video!


Otaku Treasures

Hey Beauty Otakus
This week I've had my eyes on a limited edition lipstick set from Bite Beauty and a set of limited edition duo fiber brushes from Real Techniques. When it comes to limited edition items my inner battle level is usually at a 9.
My heart is like

"but it will never be made again"

but my brain is like

Well Otaku's I gave into my heart.... and ordered both.

The lipsticks themselves are very interesting and I love real technique brushes to begin with. The lipsticks are new from Bite Beauty and are part 1 of the Cuvee Deluxe Lipstick Collection, which is exclusively sold at (not in stores), what makes them so interesting is that they are derived from Champagne grapes, freshwater Tahitian black pearls, and Japanese silk powder. Fancy huh. The lipsticks themselves are limited to 1200 per shade and not only are the lipsticks new but this is a brand new formula. For $72 bucks for four lipsticks I'm hoping for a stellar product (Sephora's return policy made me feel better about the purchase too), If your interested here is a link to the set: .

Real Technique brushes are the least expensive but most amazing quality brushes I've ever used. For the price range of $5.99-19.99 they are consistent in quality and get your makeup looking nice without breaking the bank. I don't have enough Duo Fiber brushes in my collection so three for the price of $19.99 plus an Ulta coupon, it all adds up to a pretty good deal. If your interested here's a link:

Well what have you guises purchased recently or had your eye on? How are you guise spending your Sunday? I'm spending mine relaxing with a chai lattee and a Twilight Zone marathon.

Spring Time Candy Eyes a.k.a My First Tutorial

Hey Beauty Otakus!
Here in Minnesota spring isn't exactly as it should be (so much snow!). So I decided that if I couldn't indulge in the spring weather I could at least enjoy a spring inspired look. This is the first tutorial that I have ever filmed and it was a blast. I love gradient eye looks that incorporate multiple colors and the pastel eye shadows that arrive with the season; so I combined the two and sprinkled it with sugar (glitter top coat) for a look that stands out in the sun. 

Being that this is my first tutorial I learned a lot of dos and dont's. But instead of reshooting the whole thing I wanted to enjoy having a first tutorial thats "pure", ya know filled with innocent mistakes, that way in the future I could compare this video to my new ones and see how my skill has grown. My favorite mistake from this video is a misspelling of a rather simple word...I'll just let you catch it. So what do you guys think of the look? What's your spring go to look? Do you have any tips for me and my filming style (I'm still trying to figure it out)? Thanks for reading and watching, I will be posting more videos in the very near future.
You can find them on my blog or my YouTube channel:

Stay strong, healthy, and beautiful in the meantime.
