A New Obsession

I'm not a makeup maven at all and to be honest I don't really know all that much about the world of makeup.

I am now obsessed with the YouTube videos of Makeup Geek. She's so adorable and bubbly and explains how to apply make-up, what products to use and how to use them. I also love that she recommends products that aren't going to break the bank.



I'm so enamored with the world of makeup right now that part of my Christmas present from Sean is going to be some new makeup brushes and products from her site.

Do you have any favorite sites or products?

Um.... I totally watch Makeup Geek too! I think I blogged about this once but I don't like the MAC brushes. I prefer the Sonia Kujac (Sp?) ones from Target. They hold up a lot better in my opinion.

Ok, now here is something I KNOW off the back of my hand! I was a make-up artist prior to being an army wife. And as much as I love the expensive make-up, and all of the fun random stuff. If your going for not caring about price, I suggest MAC, NARS, or Dior. If your going for Walmart, or target prices which have the SAME ingredients as the pricier products. Some of the best are Neutrogena, Olay, and Covergirl is okay, but it has an awkward smell in foundations. Also, all of the pigmented makeup, such as eyeshadow, all brands are great.

Now this is a topic I have fun with hehe. I totally feel you def need a 2 or 3 eye shadow brushes for sure. I think if you were going to get any type of makeup brushes I would reccomend to anyone ..hands down get eye brushes. They make a world of diffrence.

I am a Mac a holic and Nars a holic but there really are lots of really good affordable products out there.

I <3 makeupgeek she is super cute. Check out Kandee Johnson on youtube as well she is fun too watch.

For eyeshadows hands down MAC ..for lower end ..NYX is awesome and recently I discovered Wet and wild palettes that are actually not bad at all..really well pigmented.

anyway oh yeah if you haven't tried arleady ...get UDPP (Urban decay potion primer..It really makes not so great shadows look better and the great ones even more fab.

Ok I will shut up now..I can go and on about makeup. =P

have fun exploring the fun world of makeup.

CHeck out.. Specktra.net It's a fab cosmetic/beauty forum. There are post with peoples FOTD aka Face of the Day , Tutorials and what not ..a lot of the Makeup Guru's on Youtube frequent specktra. Specktra was kind of the pre youtube video makeup hub hehe.

I <3 makeup. My current love is the sephora #55 brush and cover fx foundation-the brush makes the foundation apply like an air brush! It's amazing. The brush also works well with liquid foundations.

For eyeshadow i love dior and MAC is ok for the price point. For lipstick i love armani lip wax, ysl rouge volupte, and guerlain.

I also started doing my own gel manis. It's not hard at all and saves me over $50 a month!

Even though I don't wear a ton of makeup at a given time, I do own a ton of it so that I can come up with different looks. My favorite makeup is Bare Escentuals...it feels really nice and lightweight on your skin!
