MissChievous Contest Entry

Ok, so one of my all time favorite YouTube gurus is MissChievous. She is so knowledgable and creative and I love watching her videos because she just talks about the makeup, no fluff. I like that. I also love that she hails from Germany, if I am not mistaken. It’s nice having someone in another country that has the same interest as you. Makes you feel more connected to the world.

Anyhoo, Julia from MissChievous has partnered up with Sigma Makeup to bring an AWESOME giveaway contest to her subscribers, which, of course, I am one of them. There are four ways to enter (how cool is that?) and she has listed them all in this video. You can enter via Twitter, Facebook, and I believe two ways on YouTube, by leaving a comment and by submitting a video response. For the video response you have to answer the question “What does makeup mean to you?” The great thing is you can enter all four ways, but there are different prizes for each method of entry which she lists in the video.

Here it is:

And here is my video response and my daughter Vivienne’s YouTube debut:

Of course I hope I win but the selection is random so it’s up to Lady Luck to make that happen and she is NEVER  kind to me, LOL! But I am going to be sending some positive vibes her way and hope she throws a sista a bone, na’mean? Good luck to all the entrants, it’s a great contest and thank you SO much Julia and Sigma! You guys ROCK!!!!!!

Sephora Ad “Orange Lips” Tutorial

Here is a video of a tutorial I did based on a Sephora “Orange Lips” ad in the latest issue of InStyle magazine. I will also include a photo of the ad itself. In my March Must-Haves post I talked about some orange lip products that I got at Sephora and I thought that I need to do some kind of look with the lips so folks would know how to actually wear orange lips in real life. When I stumbled upon this ad I HAD to recreate it. They did a phenomenal job! Anyhoo, on with the show!

Here is the ad:
