Fave Makeup Tutorials!

Posted

This blog is a little bit different, I wanted to recommend a few of my favourite Makeup Tutorials that I think are super helpful.

This first tutorial shows you the many ways you can use your Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

These sponges are so versatile I love how I can use the different angles for my foundation, under eye concealer, blush, highlight and loose powder.

To clean my sponge, I use the BH Cosmetics Brush Cleaner! It's quick and effective while disinfecting my sponge so it's always hygienic.

This next tutorial teaches you some great tips for building an epic smoky eye while showing off one of the many looks you can create with the awesome BH Cosmetics Dark Rose Palette! I love this palette, it is such great value as you not only get an eyeshadow and blush palette but you also get a black liquid eyeliner!

I always use my BH Cosmetics Eye Essential 7 Piece Brush Set for all my eye looks, it literally has everything you need all in one set!
