Tag: What I'm Using Right Now

I found this tag on the lovely Holly's blog! Since I am often asked which products I use on a regular basis, I figured that this tag would be fun, and helpful for those of you who are curious! I'm going to modify it a bit, and list what I am using right now and what I use everyday; for those categories with more than one product, I'll specify! If I don't, it means I use it now and everyday.

Random Collection of Great VS Make-Up Photos

So this is a bit of a random post, but I have found some great Victoria's Secret photos that show their make-up very well. I figured I would share!

Taylor Swift @ CMT Music Awards Make-Up

Hi everyone,

The photo to the left is of Taylor Swift at this year's CMT Music Awards. For the Youtube video tutorial, I tried to duplicate her make-up using similar products and colours. However, I chose not to use the GIANT false lashes she has, simpl
y because I feel that they tend to look very false and "over the top". On Taylor Swift they look beautiful, but she is also being filmed from a greater distance...and she is also a celebrity. haha

If you do decide you want to apply falsies, I'd suggest finding ones (Makeupforever - MUFE has some great ones) that are VERY VOLUMINOUS on the outer corner, but have very few lashes as you move toward the inner corner of your eye. This will keep the contrast between the highlight on the inner corner of your eye, and the intense black of the outer corner.

Keep in mind, however, that MUFE lashes are pretty expensive if you
plan on only wearing them for one night. A more economical choice is to purchase 'regular' lashes from a drugstore, and cut one of them in half. Then just apply them on the outer corner of your eye.

The products used in the video are:

Urban Decay primer potionStila kitten e/s
Coastal Scents 88 Palette (
MAC Carbon e/s
Revlon colorstay liquid liner in Black
NYX eye pencil in Black
Bare Minerals mineral veil
Maybelline the Falsies mascara in Blackest Black
Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in Born With It

The nailpolish colour I am wearing is called "Watermelon" by the brand Essie.
