Basic Everyday Makeup Tutorial


Do not let the fabulous rainbow colors fool you: this is a pretty simple, everyday makeup look. Now, I’m no makeup artist, and yes I fudge up sometimes in the video (and trust me, I’m aware). But I do put on makeup everyday, and have been doing so for the last 15 years or so. I’ve created this video in a more sophisticated editing program that I’m trying out. Do you like the way this video runs? I would love your feedback on my videos, so I can continue to bring you content that you guys want.

Also, I try not to talk about politics or other divisive topics here on the blog, but I would like to give a very special hello and thank you to my gay readers. This (rainbow saturated) post is for you: may everyone have the right to marry whomever they choose. ♥
