Karyn’s Video, Bobbie Ross, and Xsparkage Guest Look!

Happy Halloween!

 Hope you had a Happy Halloween, Lovely!

I sure creeped myself (and all my family and friends, to boot!) this year. I dressed up as Bobbie Ross in a playful tribute to Bob Ross, the famously calm painter. Think “Happy Little Trees”… LOL

So creepy, right?

I filmed a Bob Ross Tribute Makeup Tutorial, after Heather (Sokolum79 on YouTube, check her out for even more creep-tacular tutorials…) tweeted that I was the “Bob Ross of Makeup”. LOL! Its so funny–because its so true! I don’t know why I am always so Bob Ross Calm in all my tutorials. Its like I flip into “teacher mode” or something…

Ok, so one more for the road…

Like My Fro--or My Beard Best?

HAHAHAHAHAHA~ Ok, now time for something a little more serious.

Meet My Friend, Karyn

The video that I have been talking about all month is finally out! Yay!

Karyn, my amazingly positive and sweet friend, has been through the ringer. About a year ago now, I think, she found out that she had bilateral breast cancer. =( She’s since had a double mastectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation–and almost the entire time with that same beautiful smile on her face. She is such an amazing person, and I knew that I wanted to do something special for her on my channel during the month of October. Originally, I hoped to film a makeup tutorial using all pink–but when she told me about ‘Look Good, Feel Better’-a division of the American Cancer Society that helps women, men, and children find ways to look and feel just a little better while undergoing all sorts of cancer treatments–I knew that I had to do something that would support this wonderful cause.

When YouTube invited me to monetize a few days later (isn’t it funny how things work?), I decided right away that all proceeds from my videos would be donated to this amazing program. I saw so many amazing all-pink looks coming out for the month, and I decided I would instead like to sit down with Karyn and shoot a video describing her personal story of what ‘Look Good, Feel Better’ meant to her. There were a few scheduling problems, to be sure, but on Sunday we finally managed to get it done–and I am so happy to now be able to share it with you! Karyn is a natural, I am telling you–she needs her very own channel. In her video, she tells you all about a makeup class she took part in, and then we show you all of the amazing beauty products that were donated and given to her. The lighting is not perfect, but I know that you will forgive us since its for charity and all 😉 Anyway, please please please watch this video! I would truly appreciate it, and also know that every single video you watch on my channel (except a few starring my little boy, I was thinking that would be kinda weird to monetize a video with him in it, kinda exploitive…) will help out this very worthy cause. I have learned through Karyn’s experience that cancer is more than just a physical situation–there is so much emotional stress involved: losing not just your hair on your head, but also your eyebrows and eyelashes and everything else…dryness all over, peeling/dry skin, it goes on and on. Its comforting to know that there are organizations out there that focus on this part of the battle.

Ok, so pleading over with. I only have this one last thing to share with you…

Vivid Blue Cut Crease

Thank you so very much to Leesha, who is Xsparkage on YouTube. You already knew that, didn’t you??? Anyway, Leesha chose my Vivid Blue Cut Crease Tutorial for Small Eyes as her Guest Look this week! Joy! I am so incredibly excited about this, and the comments have been so kind from everybody that’s been seeing it.

So, more people are finding out about me–which is so nice. I am almost at 100 Subscribers! Yay! When that magical moment happens, I will be announcing on my channel and on here who my 100 Sub Giveaway winner is! Just think, if you subscribe, it could be you! What am I giving away, you ask? All kinds of stuff! Kleancolors stuff featured in my last haul, MAC and Sephora goodies–I’m telling you, its worth subbing for… 😉

 

As always, thanks for stopping by!
