Get Ready With Me: Everyday Hair & Makeup

Get Ready With Me: Everyday Hair & Makeup


A few lovely ladies have requested that I begin to integrate more makeup and specifically makeup tutorials into my YouTube channel.  Normally, I welcome and try to honor any and all requests received….however, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but me doing makeup tutorials will most likely never happen.  First of all, I don’t consider myself an expert (self or formally taught) on makeup.  Second, makeup tutorials require a lot of work both to film and edit and I think I do an amazing job just to maintain a regular posting schedule – if I added that, you’d never get videos from me regularly!  But, I don’t have a problem hitting the record button from time to time as I simply get ready in the morning.  That is provided I get up when I should (I am a ‘snooze’ button hitter) and am not frantically throwing stuff on my face before dashing out of the door – which is usually the case!

  • This year I want to dabble in make up more. So this looks super easy and I have a lot of this stuff already. Happy New year girly!

    • Thanks, Happy New Year to you as well!!! I really have been enjoying my collection and even with super simple looks like this, I love having subtle changes and stuff. YouTube really stepped up my makeup game but I was able to stop myself before I became a fanatic!

    Hhahhahhaha…ikr. I don’t have a clue abt makeup…the best I can do is line my lips and eyes with pencil; and slap on some lip gloss….well done!

  • Kimber

    Great video. I love the wig, where did you get it?

  • Andrea Williams

    Thank you for posting. I am about to buy the Lancome Teinte Idole 24 Hour Foundation, but was curious as to which color to buy. What a great color match for you, and now me! (lol) I’m going to try the Mac Blusher in Melba with this for a similar natural/ flawless look.

    • I’m so glad to have helped, thanks for letting me know! I am going to take a look at that blush color since you say we are similarly colored and looks great on you, hopefully it will do the same for me!
