my beauty essentials and a makeup tutorial

It's makeup time!  It's taken me about a year of requests to finally get the courage up to make a video tutorial.  It's kind of nerve-wrecking to put yourself (and in my case my far from perfect skin) out there on video, but picture by picture seemed a really inefficient way to illustrate makeup techniques, not to mention the essays that would accompany them.  Thus was born my first tutorial video.  I realize now that it's incredibly beefy, however it covers my daytime and evening/blog photos makeup application, as well as tips on products, techniques, and tools.  That being said, I think I will eventually do breakdown posts with more succinct videos and detailed write-ups of each product.  Until then, here is my whole routine, in vivid detail :)

Below are the products I used:

1  ||  2  ||  3  ||  4  ||  5
1  ||  2  ||  3  ||  4

And of course the video tutorial.  I had an array of technical difficulties, so my apologies for the lack of focus, and general choppiness, but videos will only improve from here (if it's worth making more).  I'm kind of a makeup junkie, I love it more for the art than necessarily wearing makeup on my face every day.  So if you have any questions, or topics you'd like to see covered, please let me know in the comments below!

And yes, this was easily the most attractive screen shot from which Youtube let me pick.

Thanks for reading (and watching!) and have a great weekend!
