In The Vault: Spring Pink Makeup Tutorial

I started video blogging my love of beauty and skincare long before I started blogging on Stay tuned every Thursday for a look at little-old-me… well, me in 2010…

I thought it would be appropriate to start sharing my older videos by starting with my first tutorial, a Spring makeup look! Don’t I sound so different in this video? I feel like I’ve changed so much in these two years! 

Products used in this video:

1. Clinique Acne Solutions Concealer, 01 
2. mark. Speedway Do Everything Makeup, Ivory (discontinued)  
3. mark. Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint, Cheeky 
4. Almay Pure Blends Loose Finishing Powder, Translucent Matte (discontinued, similar here
5. mark. Glowdacious Illuminating Powder, Prettied Up  
6. mark. eyeshadow, LuvStruck 
7. 96 Color Palette, Peach color 
8. Loreal HIP pigment, Restless (discontinued, use any soft light color)
9. Revlon Eyelash Curler 
10. Almay Pure Blends Mascara (discontinued, I recommend the Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes instead)
11. mark. Totally Balmed SPF 15 Lip Balm, Totally Sweet (discontinued but on sale now for a limited time!) 

So  many great products! I can’t believe how many of them are discontinued! 

Come back next Thursday for another look into the vault. In the mean time, share your favorite makeup looks for Spring in the comments! To see more videos from my YouTube channel as they come up, subscribe here.

Haul of “Little Things”

{I forgot to cut out the mistake in the beginning! How funny. Wish I had realized before I uploaded.}

I have been really good at keeping my shopping to a minimum (as per my Living Minimally resolution) but I did splurge on an adorable necklace and purchased a few other things that I was running out of. 

My splurge necklace was originally $50 (I think) but I was able to get it on sale for $30 at Hautelook (an online deals site) so I was extremely excited! I’ve been wanting to buy a Dogeared necklace for over  a year but they are a little too expensive when they aren’t on sale. Isn’t it darling? I am happy I cheated a little to buy this necklace because whenever their necklaces are on sale they sell out immediately! Sign up for Hautelook here if you want to see what other items they have on sale. 

I purchased four other items, three of them I needed and the last one I won’t need for another few months. I got them all at Sally Beauty Supply. If you don’t have one in the area, I’ve linked the items in their online store below. They have amazing values! I got so much product for so cheap! 

1. Beauty Secrets Nail Hardener
2. Beauty Secrets Top Coat
3. Beauty Secrets Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover (They also have one that is a gallon sized!) 
4. Hair One  Olive Oil Cleansing Conditioner for Dry Hair (Comparable to Wen)

That is all I have purchased this month! I hope you enjoyed the video. 

What have you purchased lately? Have you ever shopped on Hautelook or Sally Beauty?
