I love getting dressed up and wearing makeup - and I've never grown out of the excitement of giving makeovers. At family parties you'll find me applying makeup on my aunts, cousins... pretty much anyone who'll let me get near them with a blush brush!
Although I love learning the latest makeup techniques, I'm not a makeup artist AT ALL. I'm just someone who likes learning and sharing easy tricks and tweaks to looking glam.
In the video below, I'll be featuring a quick and easy makeup tutorial to get you holiday party ready - hope you find it helpful!
Some notes before you click "PLAY:"
- My friend Shaile was a DOLL to let me film her for this video
- I am in awe of YouTube makeup artists - it's REALLY tricky to apply makeup on somebody while trying to capture everything on film! I hope I was able to get the general techniques across, but in real life, I'd probably spend a lot more time patting and blending everything in.
- Don't be alarmed by the brightness of the highlighting concealer. It's a celeb-favoured technique that enhances your facial structure and brings a glow to the face (à la Jennifer Lopez). While it may look conspicuous at first, it will look more natural by the time the bronzer and blush are applied.
If you want to recreate this look at home - you're in luck! One YMC reader will win a Target gift package (retail value $160) containing all the makeup used in the tutorial including:
