Nude Lipstick/Everyday Lip Product Collection AND a Mother’s Day Giveaway on Instagram!

may 8, 2016 | by: mercedes | filed under: makeup, videos


Sharing my nude lipstick/everyday lip product collection on YouTube this Sunday, complete with lots of arm swatches which end up looking like a beautiful work of art when I’m all done! It’s the little things. I’m also intending to do a companion video of my bold lipsticks – my one true makeup love!

Also, Happy Mother’s Day! Amaki Beauty, who sponsored a Valentine’s Day giveaway I did, sent me a box of beautiful products for a Mother’s Day giveaway. These things would make beautiful gifts, or I would NOT judge you if you decide to keep them for yourself.ย I show product close-ups of everything in the box on the intro to my video on youtube today, but here’s what’s included:

Mother’s Day Gift Set, valued at $51, includes –


Rose Water Hydrating Mist Toner 4 fl oz

Jasmine & Rose Nourishing Oil 4 fl oz

Konjac Facial Wash Sponge
If you don’t win the giveaway but want one of these sets anyway, it can be yours! It’s $37 plus free U.S. shipping,ย http://www.amakiskincare.com/products/mothers-day-gift-set


All the details will be over on Instagram, so head over there to enter!


Updated Everyday Makeup Routine (Eco/Luxe)

march 27, 2016 | by: mercedes | filed under: makeup, videos

I’m realizing that I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing makeup-centric videos on my channel and I’m intent on changing that! More GRWMs! Those are such good videos to watch. So more makeup videos to come, but in the meantime I thought it was about time to show you my updated everyday makeup routine. This is what I’ll throw on in 10/15 minutes tops before work – I usually rotate between 2-3 products in each category, and sometimes I’ll forgo the liquid liner for a wash of cream shadow, or I’ll change up the lip (though it tends to stay in the neutral family…forever trying to rock bold lips during the day but I just always revert to what’s easier #humannature). Watch below, or head over and watch on Youtube (and subscribe while you’re there!):
