Makeup Tutorial: Bronzed Out!!

Hi everyone!

As some of you may know, my friend Elessa (aka Pursebuzz), put together a beauty mixer a few weeks ago (dubbed BBC - Bows, Balloons, & Cupcakes) in San Diego. When I posted pictures from that day, I had a few people ask what I used/requested a tutorial. I ended up recreating this look for a birthday event... and decided to record myself so I could make a tutorial out of it!

Pictures of the look!

Some of the products used I received for consideration. Others I bought with my own money, or got them as presents! Regardless of how I get products, anything I use is badass. I won't show anything on here unless I like it!

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for ALL the support/love you've shown me!!!

Please comment the video & let me know what you guys think about voiceovers!! I know it's echo-y so it's not the best voiceover in the world.... but of course if you guys don't mind it, I'll probably invest in a mic and do these from time to time! You probably know I get really busy (this shows through in my lack of video making lol) so recording myself just getting ready & doing a voiceover later increases my chances of putting videos up!

Anywhoo-- if you have any requests for looks.. please post of them on my facebook page! I started using that a lot more often now! You can visit that here:

Also, if you have Twitter, you can follow me there & tweet me pictures as well!

Take Care!! I'll be seeing you all soon again!
