TUTORIAL: Sophisticated Spring 2015 Makeup Look (Drugstore)

This natural, sophisticated Spring 2015 look is inspired by my recent trip to Japan! Many of the women in Tokyo were sporting bright pink blush, sheer glossy lips, and glowing skin with almost unreal clarity, which inspired me to recreate the look for you! Since the final result reminded me of the delicate budding sakura flowers — otherwise known as cherry blossoms — I decided it would be a suitable name for this tutorial. Best of all, the products used in this tutorial are affordable! Since I am only able to film a few drugstore videos each year, I know how much my teenage and college-aged viewers look forward to these. I hope you'll appreciate the change of pace and enjoy the look!

Giorgio Armani Eye Tints Review, Photos, Swatches [Obsidian, Gold Ashes, Shadow, Émeraude, Cold Copper, Green Iron] + Complete Look

Giorgio Armani's lovely new Eye Tints ($38 USD each) were inspired by the Maestro foundation, blending smoothly for a "no makeup" feel. I have been testing them for a few weeks now, and it is positively one of my favorite 2015 beauty launches thus far. We are seeing the 'fluid' trend build even more momentum in both eye and lip departments, and the improving performance of the products make it clear the trend is not going away any time soon! I tend to wear a lot of highlighter shades and less impact color like purple or navy eyeshadow, so I was very excited to see the fun yet wearable shade lineup. All swatches and a complete eye look are after the jump!

REVIEW: Makeup Brush Guide + My Holy Grail Brushes by Chikuhodo, Wayne Goss, Hakuhodo, Tom Ford, and more

I can hardly believe it has been almost two years since my last favorite brushes video! I have garnered so much knowledge and experience since then, and my skin has been through hell and back, so my brush preferences are rather different. Since discovering the beauty of artisan brushes, I have not looked back. The craftsmanship and attention to detail oftentimes astound me, even if I've owned the brush for a year or two. Each brush is shaped by hand and the natural tips of the fibers are much finer, which ultimately lead to a much softer feel on the skin as opposed to laser-cut hairs. More details after the jump!

Tom Ford Lips&Boys Review, Photos, Swatches, and Comparisons

Tom Ford's Lips&Boys Lipsticks finally hit stores last month, and they have been selling like hot cakes! I have ten of the 50 "mini" color collection ($32 USD each) to share with you, and they are all individually unique and beautiful. These Lips&Boys boast 0.07 grams of product while the full-sized Lip Colors contain 1.0 grams. The quality is impressive and the colors are highly pigmented as expected. Check out the swatches after the jump!
