I'M ON YOUTUBE NOW!

YAY! I officially have a YouTube Channel

Over time I've had a number of people ask me if I do YouTube videos and I
recently got a better quality camera, I decided to look into filming videos & editing.

This last week has been VERY BUSY and a bit stressful. But I managed to learn a video
editing software, and through trail and error, kinda figure out the lighting situation and angles for
filming videos. I still have to get use to it and I have a lot to improve on...but I promise I'll get better!

So far I have three videos done and uploaded :)
I would love to get some feedback to see what you all think of them.

Disney Vogue Snow White Inspired

Disney Vogue Snow White Inspired

@Luve_Kat is having a contest on Instagram.com inspired by Disney Vogue Princesses and I decided to enter. I tried to duplicate all of the elements from the photo I was inspired by from the eye color, large eyes, dramatic brows, lip color and shape, bow and the clothing. I'm not entirely happy with the way it turned out I wanted it to be more soft & feminine. Anyway, here's my entry.

Milani Eye Tech Extreme Review & Swatches

Milani Eye Tech Extreme, Blackest Black

Review:

The GoodI like the sleek thin design of the product & the shape of the felt tip applicator. The color is actually very black which I love. It's pretty long lasting (8+ hours) & easy to use. You can make very thin precise lines or thicker ones thanks to the design of the tip. 

The Bad: I really don't like that you can't dip it in to get more product on it, you just kinda shake it up & hope for the best, but it does make it less messy I suppose...

Here is a shot of the packaging & a few swatches:

Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes: Review & Pics!

Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes Review &  Pics!

I stumbled on these Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes for sale at CVS Pharmacy, and couldn't help myself so I bought all 4. I usually like much bigger & bolder lashes but want to try new styles and these were really pretty and only $3 so I figured "why not?" Here's what I bought:
- Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes Ka-Ching (Green)
- Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes Ka-Boom (Blue)
- Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes Ka-Pow (Purple)
- Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes Individuals

REVIEW: Overall I really like the color & style of these lashes and will be purchasing more but probably from Madame Madeline's site cause they're a bit cheaper :) originally $8.50 at CVS, $7.99 on MadameMadeline.com

PROS:The Katy Perry Color Pop Lashes lashes are very wispy & pretty. They're medium fullness/thickness so they're not too subtle which is a plus for me. Each Box comes with a small tube of glue which is great because I really like Eylure lash glue, it also comes with instructions & a sticker. The individuals come with both glue & glue remover! These lashes have a double layer type style which makes them appear more full and I like that. The band is pretty flexible, but not as flexible as I usually prefer but I'm pretty sure it's made that way to maintain it's shape. I do wish they had more strands of color because I like color :)

 CONS:  The only thing I really don't like about these is that they're a bit uncomfortablel; the edges of the bands are pointy and sting. I tried adjusting them but it didn't do much, all  3 pairs gave me the same problem which sucks, but won't stop me from wearing them.

Here are some Products photos & each pair applied (except for the individuals)









PRODUCTS & WHERE THEY WERE USED:

EYEBROWS:
• Lime Crime eyeshadow helper (all over brows)
• Anastasia Brow Powder Ebony (using Sephora brow sculpting brush)
• Anastasia Brow Powder (over brows to lighten)

EYES:
• Urban Decay primer potion Original (all over eyelid)
• Too Faced Naked Eye palette:
   - In the Buff (highlight)
   - Satin Sheets (top lid & tear duct)
   - Unmentionables (top lid crease)
   - Lap Dance (along bottom lid)
• Urban Decay eye liner Desperation (waterline)
• Prestige liquid eye liner black (eyeliner/wing)
• Duo Brush-on Lash adhesive
