I love Vimeo! It’s a positive, encouraging community of artists that share their passion to create in the form of video. The site is clean, organized and aesthetically pleasing. There aren’t annoying ads everywhere, nor mean spirited viewers that leave hateful, unproductive criticism. This site is about sharing your art, and building a support system. I actually have more videos posted on my Vimeo Channel than on YouTube because there are less limitations. YouTube makes me compromise what I want my finished product to be, so you’ll also notice slight differences in some of the original videos on Vimeo. If you haven’t subscribed to my channel yet, please do. On my channel, you can watch makeup videos that include tutorials and cosmetic product reviews. I give away the more exclusive and hard to find beauty products for Vimeo contests, so it benefits subscribers all the way around.
I love the new Wonder Woman makeup collection from M.A.C.! Everything down to the packaging is top notch. I got the Mineralize Skinfinish Powder ($35), “Lady Justice” eye shadow quad ($40), “Red Russian” matte lipstick ($15.50), “Wonder Woman” lipglass ($20), and “Themyscira” blue Opulash mascara ($15). There’s really no point in doing a review on this line because everything M.A.C. creates is amazing. I’ll cut to the chase and show you all my new tutorial!
I am OBSESSED with MAC’s Clear Gloss texture gel ($18). The skin trend is changing to a more refreshing, dewy, moisture-drenched look that I am absolutely in love with. Dab a little clear gloss on the high planes of your face and you’re ready for a photo shoot. Here are some examples of new, natural beauty:
This gloss can be used anywhere on your body and face. Dab a little in the center of your smoky eyes and you’ve got vintage Hollywood glam. Mix it with pigments and/or glitter and you can create any color of lip gloss you want. Clear Gloss is so versatile, it’s worth the $18.
Jane Doe: I have an eye infection (stye) that keeps recurring. I’ve now washed all my brushes and replaced my mascara (i know it should be replaced or I’ll get eye infections, which is now very obvious). I start a job next Monday, should I replace all my other makeup too (powders, blushes)?
Me: If you keep having infections and you are using your brushes and couble dipping in your eye shadows, then those are most likely infected too. face makeup should be ok to keep. Now some q’s for you:
1. what are you washing your brushes with and how often?
2. how long have you had your makeup you are thinking of replacing?
3. how often do you clean your makeup?
4. how often do you change your mascara?
1. Just washed my brushes for the first time in a year with dish soap.
2. About a year. And it’s my face powder – bare minerals.
3. WTF do you mean by “clean your makeup”?
4. Just bought new mascara because of eye infection.
Also, I admittedly do not always wash my face before bed (too tired, meh). So I know I need to change that. And my pillowcases, and my washcloth.
Me: Infections are not caused by not washing your face, pillow cases, etc. Here are some tips on how to prevent eye infections.
1. Your brushes should be washed after every use, but get in the habit of at least once a week for now. Dish soap is ok, but can mess up your brushes. Just be sure it’s a mild formula and anti-bacterial.
2. Your face powder should be ok as long as the brush you are using for it never came in contact with your eyes.
3. especially if you don’t wash your brushes regularly, you should- spray alcohol on, then swipe your lipsticks on a paper towel once a month.
wipe the tops of any dry pressed powders with a dry tissue once a month
spray a paper towel with alcohol, then wipe off the top layer of any cream makeup you have once a week.
4. Mascara should be thrown out after 3months of the first use…and that’s the extreme maximum. When you pull out the wand and don’t hear that kissing sound, then it’s time to get a new one. Also, don’t pump the wand into the tube because you are providing more air for bacteria to breed in there.
My new video shows you what to look for when shopping for MAC Cosmetics on eBay. There are thousands of counterfeit M.A.C. Cosmetics in the world, and the internet makes it that much easier to dupe people into thinking it’s the real thing. In my video, I cover brushes, eye shadow palettes, and the Hello Kitty collection. I’ve learned from my mistakes, and I now know that there’s no better deal than buying MAC from real MAC counters, real MAC stores and the MAC website. They are extremely reasonably priced, and the US sells it for less than any other country in the world. This tutorial is meant for those of you who seek out those discontinued or limited edition products that are no longer available. A tip for brushes: JUST DON’T DO IT. The video explains why…
