BeautyCon LA

 

I’m back in Southern California right now and having an amazing time! I recently got to attend BeautyCon LA 2015  as most of you probaby saw from my instagram posts. It was an unreal event. So many people attended that I’m so grateful I got the premium ticket because I didn’t have to wait in any lines and got to sit in the reserved seating for the panels.

The panels were great. There were so many youtube celebrities there, some I hadn’t even heard of but seemed to pretty popular with the audience.

It was great to listen to different artists stories and struggles and what it took for them to get to where they are now. Very inspiring.

Besides the panels and booths, there were a ton of activities taking place outside like the live music stage, meet & greets, a Ferris wheel and some great food trucks.

For those of you planning on visiting LA in the future, two places you have to check out are Sprinkles cupcakes and my absolute fav, California donuts. Both were at the show :)

There were also live makeup demos taking place like Rob Scheppy working his magic at the Tweezerman booth.

The VIP lounge was pretty cool, all the YouTube celebs were there hanging out including Christina Milian & her sisters. Cool story- I got to sit next to her sisters during her panel and had to sign a waiver to allow them to show my face on their reality show because they were filming!

Ok probably my fav moment of the whole event was meeting this guy right here- Rob Scheppy. So surreal. He is one of the artists that the Kardashians use. You usually see him working on Khloe the most and her makeup always looks amazing.

I also got to meet one of my fav youtubers and the inspiration behind most of our Bella Trois videos- Claire Marshall. She was so down to earth and generous with her advice.

This last meetup was for my friend Jackie. She is a HUGE Mr. Kate fan and I even got her to say hi to Jackie on Snapchat. So sweet.

All in all it was a pretty fun day. If you do plan on going to BeautyCon in the future, I would suggest getting there super early because the lineups were insane. Definitely worth it though!

 

My Eyebrow Routine

My eyebrow routine

 

I’m back with another tutorial for you all, and this one you guys have been requesting for a while- my eyebrow routine. I show you the technique I use to fill in my brows plus my favorite products.

 

Here’s the video:

 

 

One part that didn’t seem to record (I could’ve sworn it did but I can’t find the footage anywhere!!) is the last bit where I apply a lighter concealer under my brows to clean up the edge and make the brows pop even more. Here’s an insta video I did on the same technique:

 

 

The 3 reasons your Foundation doesn’t match

the 3 reasons your foundation doesn't match

 

One of the biggest if not the biggest complaint I hear from women when it comes to their makeup is that they can’t seem to find the right foundation.

 

We’ve all been there, you go into the store and get matched and it looks great under the harsh fluorescent lighting, but the minute you get outside your face all of a sudden looks like an alien transplant on your body. Ok maybe it’s not that bad but you know what I mean.

 

What are you supposed to do? Well I’ll tell you what not to do with the 3 reasons why your foundation doesn’t match:

 

1. You haven’t taken into account the color of your neck & chest.

Often we’re so concerned with the foundation matching our face that we completely forget to take into account that when people look at us, they see our neck & chest as well. So it’s important that you find a color that flows so that you don’t get that dreaded line that divides your face from your neck.

 

2. You use the same foundation shade all year round. 

This is such a common mistake that people make. Assuming that your winter foundation will work in the summer and vice versa. Think about it. We spend so much time outdoors in the summer, there’s a high chance your winter foundation will be too light. The same goes for the opposite scenario. Which is why you will almost always need to use 2 different shades within one year.

 

3. You’re trying to make your skin look lighter/darker with your foundation.

Ok so this one is more common than you think and totally doable BUT not with your foundation. Your base should always match your skin, and then you can use products like a lighter concealer to highlight the center of your face which will make your overall appearance lighter and/or using a bronze to darken your forehead, neck & cheeks to make you look more tanned.
