A few years ago (maybe more), I filmed a monolid makeup tutorial video with my sister as the model for the look! This time around, we decided to feature her favorite makeup products and she put them on my face. Even though we are genetically the same person, it is fascinating how different our styles and preferences in application are. This was such a funny and enlightening experience for us, so we hope you'll enjoy watching our antics!
Although I have introduced her to the fantastic worlds of Tom Ford Beauty and Clé de Peau Beauté, she taught me how valuable the itty bitty BeautyBlender Micro.Mini sponge could be. I always wrote it off as unnecessary, but if you have small(er) eyes, this neon green sponge could be your next beauty essential! I can no longer blend my concealer without it. The edges look seamless! My sister also reminded me how much I loved the La Mer Loose Powder when she started working for La Mer. Though she has moved on to a new (and non-beauty related) opportunity, we are both very dedicated to the translucent power because of its supremely creamy texture and soft-focus finish. There were rumors that La Mer planned to discontinue to the powder a couple years ago, and that is why I stopped using it for a while, but it seems that The Loose Powder is here to stay!
Of course we cannot forget to mention the lashes, which always complete our looks. We are both huge fans of Velour Lashes! There's simply no comparison. Velour makes the best lashes for photography and videography, and they are reusable for an average of 6 to 8 outings. My sister and I both enjoy wearing Dollywink on low-key days, Velour Lashes (silk) for a little extra flair, and Velour Lashes (mink) for glamorous drama. Pair with a glossy lip and you'll be set to go!
