Evie Blender VS The Beauty Blender

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past little while, you’ve heard about the Evie Blender. A silicone egg-looking blender that has been making waves all around the makeup world. The company was founded by Angie Johnson, a film and tv makeup artist. The idea was to create a beauty product applicator that would cut down on waste and thus, the Evie Blender was born. I initially was interested in the blender because of my germaphobic tendencies, I always thought about all the bacteria that could be growing in a beauty blender, so this seemed like a great alternative. This blender initially started out as a kick-starter initiative, I donated to them and ended up getting the blender in the mail earlier this week. There have been a ton of mixed reviews online, so I decided to put this blender to the test in comparison with the trusted beauty blender we all know and love!

I couldn’t fathom why anyone would want to wear orange on their face. Now, I’ve changed my tune. It… Continue reading Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana?

What The #*$@ is Contouring!?

I’ve actually heard this question a lot, especially since the word contouring has gotten so popular thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. Essentially contouring is the technique of creating shadows on your face to manipulate its appearance. Highlighting on the other hand is the technique of accentuating certain aspects of your face. Like I state in this video, I am a huge advocate of loving the skin that you’re in, but at the same time, I love to play around with makeup and I try not to take this stuff too seriously. A little while back I started a beginners series of different makeup techniques and I asked you guys to let me know if there is anything that you would like to see. Highlighting, Contouring and Baking were all highly requested videos, so after recording a few other videos that I was excited to get out, I decided to make this one. Because it is a beginners video, I kept it all very natural and easy to follow along. I really hope you guys enjoy this and as always, don’t forget to subscribe to my channel!
