Welcome to our beauty blog! This first post is written by me, Emily, but Ashley will also be posting as well. We just created our own youtube account (aemakeup) where we will give reviews, tutorials, hauls and everything between. While we plan on doing videos that are our own ideas, it's also important that y'all give us your suggestions and requests as well! Like I said, we just created all of this today so as far as frequency of posts is undecided. So far today I've already loaded my short intro and am currently uploading a video about products I regret buying and a two part video about products I'm loving. Check them out and please subscribe!
Now, a little bit about me. I have wanted to blog and do videos for a long time, so I am so excited to finally get into it! I'm an artist, so naturally makeup has always interested me. Hello, it's art for your face. While I've always been interested in makeup, it's only been in the last several months that I've really started getting into and building my collection. While I love the youtube makeup guru community, I feel like many of them aren't as active as they used to be. I'm not criticizing them in anyway, but if y'all feel the same way I do you want to see more!
As far as my collection goes, I use both drugstore and high end products. If it works, it works and I will try anything once.
My philosophy on beauty is that it is SO important for every girl to feel beautiful inside and out. While I think appearance is a huge factor, even all the makeup in the world can't make you a beautiful person. So, to all of the people that are going to think I'm being superficial, I'm really not. If anything, makeup is just a tool. For me, I feel totally confident when I look my best and I want to translate that to all of you as well.
Enough of that, let me give y'all a run down of the first two (well, three I guess) videos.
Products I regret buying:
Wet 'N Wild Creme Eyeshadow Pencil in Techno.
Wet 'N Wild Wild Shine Lip Lacquer in Passionate
Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation
Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer
Ulta Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Desert Mesa
Products I love:
Chanel Mat Lumiere Foundation
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils
NYX Blush in Pinky
Chanel Pressed Clarifying Powder(I can't remember the exact name, I'll edit when I get a chance!)
Chanel Exceptionel Mascara
Smashbox O Gloss
I'm writing this in a hurry so when I get a chance I'll fix anything I forgot.
Hopefully today I'll get a chance to film a foundation tutorial (why not start with the basics) and Ashley and I will have a chance to film a little intro together!
Oh and Ashley will be uploading her faves and hates tonight as well.
Suggestions, requests, and comments are welcome!
