Makeup Video Tutorial

I hope everyone is having a great start to their week! This post is a little different to my usual fashion looks, but I really want to incorporate some beauty as well. I used to be a makeup artist so I have a huge love for makeup and what it can do to enhance a woman's beauty. When used properly, makeup can really work wonders!

In this video, I am giving a tutorial for a polished day look. This is what I wear pretty much everyday, but most people might cut some corners to speed up the process (I can do a shorter video on a "5 minute face" if you are interested). This particular look is perfect for anyone that deals with the public for work, or for a nice lunch/daytime party.

I hope you enjoy it and please let me know your thoughts. I would also be happy to take suggestions for other looks that you would like to see :)
