Jungle Woman

Are You Ready to Go Into the Wild?

Heh

I know it’s been quite a while since I’ve blogged, I have just been so crazy busy filming/editing/uploading YouTube videos. I am having so much fun right now, it’s ridiculous!

So, what have I been uploading? Let’s work in the reverse order, since I love my latest tutorial so much. I called it “Jungle Woman” when I was saving it, but that didn’t feel descriptive enough–so I just went with Neutral Cut Crease with Teal Eyeshadow Tutorial. It IS a Neutral Cut Crease with Teal, but it is also quite a bit “Jungle Woman”. LOL It is not for wimps! This look will definitely get you noticed, trust me. I wore it to Taco Bell here in Sebring, with hilarious results. Just in case you have never been to Sebring *and I don’t blame you a bit!*, for about six months out of the year we double in population–due to all the “snowbirds” (a loving phrase used to describe old people that flock down to Florida for the winter months) coming down. So, of course, the roads get clogged and lines are long at places like Taco Bell 😉 I got a LOT of strange looks, which I love–but if you don’t like that sort of attention, I highly suggest you skip this look! Well, you know, after you watch the video and admire my creativity haha

A More Wearable Look?

If you are not into being a Jungle Woman, might I suggest this requested Burgundy Look? One of my subscribers, a sweetheart named Joanna, asked me to do a burgundy eyeshadow tutorial. When I asked, she said that she enjoys more wearable looks, so I decided to do a full face makeup tutorial featuring burgundy and gold fall colors. I actually stunned myself with this one! Look at me, I am gorgeous! Thank you, Joanna–your suggestion made me look fantastic hahaha I have never used burgundy before, believe it or not, and so this was a ton of fun to experiment with!

I’m also sporting this look in my October Favorites video, which is actually a combination video of (of course) my October Loves and a Swap Haul that came from my new friend, Rebecca. Man, this girl has FANTASTIC TASTE! I really suggest you check out her Blog because if it is anything like the stuff she sent over to me, I am bookmarking it 😉 Can I just say how lucky you ladies are over in the UK??? You guys have Sleek and Max Factor. In fact, I don’t know how I am going to go back to American mascaras now that I have Max Factor 2000 Calorie! It is amazing! I need to do what I did with that L’oreal False Fiber and show some Before/After photos of this stuff, it is unreal!

So, what is coming?

So many, many things! I have been filming and editing like crazy, and all that’s left for me to do is upload now. I have a few Tags that I’ve done, and I am sure they will be up any day now. If you enjoyed my latest (Jungle Woman haha) tutorial and want to see a full list of products, I will be happy to do that for you–just let me know.

Meoooow!

Until Then, Keep Smiling!

Two Part Peacock Tutorial

Feelin' Peacocky?

Happy Friday!

How’s it going? I am having a lovely night, and I hope that you are, too!

So, I am up to 103 Subscribers! Yay! That’s so awesome–and it means that I FINALLY get to give-away all the groovy products I have been sitting on for months. I have been waiting and waiting to send somebody all this cool stuff–Kleancolor eyeshadows, Hard Candy Eye Defs and Gloss Pencils, L’oreal and Covergirl Mascaras, OneSweep Blushes–oh my!

My son, Nathan, is six years old. I think that he is the most amazing kid. When it came to choosing a winner for the Giveaway, I decided to let him choose because there was no way I was going to do it. I have been getting to know so many of my viewers both in comments/messages over YouTube and also on Twitter, it would just be sort of weird to choose. I mean, a part of me would want to choose a lovely that I feel is cool–and then the other part would want to ignore those people because it would be like cheating, you know? So, instead of writing 103 names down and choosing from a hat (OMG even at the thought!), I decided to let Nathan point to the winner. So, that’s what we did–and I have to tell you just how great this turned out. Nathan chose a 13 year old girl, her name is beverlyheld13 on YouTube, and you should be checking her out! She does great hauls and makeup/fashion videos–and she has really overcome a lot of challenges. Congrats, Beverly! I really hope that you enjoy this stuff, you sure deserve it! I can’t wait to see what you do with everything!

 

Okay…so onto this whole tutorial deal.

Pre-Peacock

So, I have been wearing this teal/gold color combo like its going out of style. I love gold eyeshadow in the inner corner, and I am always looking for interesting ways to wear animal prints–so this look was a fusion of two things that I love. I filmed several versions of this tutorial before Halloween, but every time I sat down to edit them I just wasn’t feelin’ it. The feathers either looked too big, too straight up and down, or too sloppy. Can I just say how hard it is to do eye makeup while filming?! LOL But anyway, I refused to give up. Finally, on October 30 I got it (pretty) right. When I was editing it, I made the decision to make it into two videos so that viewers who are not as adventurous (read: crazy) could just learn the beautiful teal and gold look.

 

This look was created using Wet N Wild Color Icon palettes in Vanity (Golds) and Bake-Off Contest (Blues), along with Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadows (Teals). The eyeliners are Jordana, Maybelline, and Hard Candy. I also applied mascara (Max Factor 2000 Calorie) to complete the look. Guess what I used to prime my lids? LOL You guessed NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil, didn’t you? Heh, you would be right if you did! 😉

In this second tutorial, I show you how to map out and create these metallic gold peacock feathers that dance happily across the crease. I seriously wore this look at least ten times last month, which is a first for me–that’s how much I loved it. I didn’t even bother to change products or colors. The only change between any of the filmings was that I was originally using a liquid Wet N Wild Liquid Liner. I decided it dried too shiny, and I loved the more accurate precision of the Physician’s Formula Eye Booster Liner in Brown. Man, I love that little eyeliner pen. When I do swaps, I ALWAYS include one–usually in Ultra Black because it is shiny, something unusual in a liquid liner. Ok, sorry for the detour! haha The way to create this look is to first map out the general shapes using brown liquid liner. Then you go over with the gold, in this case Gold Rush Beauty Rush by Victoria’s Secret liquid liner. I used white eyeliner pencil by Wet N Wild, Glitter Rocks Pencil from Jordana, and Flip Side Liquid Eyeliner from Hard Candy to do the center of the feathers. Then I added two sets of lashes, just for fun 😉 The first set was Natural by Revlon, applied with Revlon Lash Adhesive. The second set was Ardell 305 Half Lashes. I originally used feathers for the second pair, the same way that I did in the other Peacock Tutorial (the one inspired by Cora, vintageortacky on YouTube)–but I had already thrown them out by the time I got this look right. I thought I would find some more at the Halloween store where I originally found them, but I was wrong 😦 Oh well, I still think it turned out pretty well!

What do you think???
