Samples Anyone??!!

Here is a Quick Step by Step of how I spiced up an old picture!! 

Step 1: I used Photoshop Express! Reduced Noise and used the Vibrant effect!
Step 2: I cropped the photo, used the FASHION effect or filter using I Camera! 
Step 3: I used Snapseed to create a Grunge effect smoothed out the texture strength and played around                        with the style! 
Step 4: I uploaded it to Instagram and I decided on the Nashville filter one of my favs!! ( See Picture Below)

Beauty Secrets SHHH!!!

            It's been a while since Ive posted anything new!! Today's post is about my BEAUTY SECRETS!! Let's talk MAKEUP!! For all of you ladies out there who are new to the Makeup scene I will try my best to give you all the best tips!! No.1 I always get questions like "How do you find the right foundation?!! I can never get my skin to match my foundation!!" Answer: There is no perfect match so here is what I do: I use a lighter foundation and then a darker powder, or vice versa!! The powder should either be a shade lighter than the foundation you use or if your using a lighter foundation the powder should be a shade darker!! In this case I use MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY FOUNDATION and L'OREAL TRUE MATCH POWDER!! I suggest these two because its smooth and doesn't have that cake effect!! 

 Now onto blush!! The safest blush I recommend is MAC Raisin!! You can use this blush with ANY look!! Which brings us to the shadows!!  For my eyes I try to keep it natural as well!! I experiment with different eyeshadows! I'll give you my favorite brands in the next post which will have a tutorial. Another trick.. People always ask what highlight or shadow I use for my brow bone!! Answer: None! I actually use concealer!! Concealer is a great way to highlight your brow bone without it fading throughout the day!! If your darker use a very light concealer on the brow bone to give it that pop!! 
             On to eyeliners, mascara, and eyelashes!! For eyeliner the best to use is REVLON COLORSTAY for the waterline as well as the top! 

The best mascara is L'OREAL VOLUMINOUS. It makes your eyelashes long and thick!! I never leave the house without it!! Seriously!!

For eyelashes it depends on the occasion but if you are on a budget I suggest to try a beauty supply store.. Eyelashes can range from $1.99 - $10.00. ( Will show in tutorial how to apply).These are just a few of my makeup BEAUTY SECRETS that will have you looking flawless in no time!! Hope this was helpful to you!! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask or leave a comment!! STAY TUNED for the video tutorial!! DONT FORGET TO SMILE :)
