I totally recommend you get the sugarpill white eyeshadow (I think it's called tako?) which is a very pigmented matte white eyeshadow & it's not stupidly priced.....definately worth it though if you use a lot of white shadow :)
Loved the tutorial :)

Thanks for the tutorial! You've inspired me to try fake eyelashes!

Rebekah Bradford said...

Fabulous, Alex! Thanks so much for the video :) I have had troubles before with fake eyelashes, so they didn't leave such a good impression on me when I first tried them, though I'm wondering about using them again sometime... I think I may just need some different glue ;P Anyways, I will definitely be taking away some great makeup tips from this video, so thanks!



Hannah Barta said...

I loved it, Alexandra! You've inspired me to mess around some more with makeup.... :)


Jordyn said...

I gave up on eyelashes a couple months ago, maybe I should give them another chance. I love the way they look!

Pretty Lovely

Sydney Jordan said...

Linda B said...

What was the brand and name of the eye shadow primer that you used?

Thanks for the great video!


Alexandra Marie said...

@Hannah Heyne-- oops, I forgot to link it! Hard Candy- it works wonders! I picked it up at Walmart for $6

Like some others have said, this feature has inspired me to have some fun with make-up, Lord knows it looks fantastic on you! I don't typically fuss with anything other than my normal routine! I ADORE the eyelashes, I am def going to give that a go as well : )

Maybe you mentioned this or maybe I missed it, but do you have a favorite, go to RED lipstick color, or do you use a variety of colors?

THANKS for sharing!


Alexandra Marie said...

@Diana Thank you so much! Yes! I have this small red lipstick obsession ( probably at least 7+ shades of red) but my all time favorite is MAC's Russian Red- it's the red I wear in almost all of my photo shoots, as well as this video :)

Diana said...

THANKS for the info---I will have to give the Russian Red a try!!

It did not feel like you droned for 30 minutes! That video went by fast. So fun! I need to wear fake eyelashes more often; they are amazing. And I'm totally cheap with my brushes and makeup too. I think it's nice to see tutorials using affordable makeup.

Great video!
You are very dedicated to your style...I admire that. : )
I've never had much expertise in the makeup department, but I don't have much time to myself in the mornings anyway! With little children, it becomes impossible to even keep your nails polished.
: )
I too love listening to 50's tunes, and 30's/40's as well.
I have Sirius xm radio, and I like to play "50s on 5" during the day, and then transition to "Siriusly Sinatra" or "40s on 4" in the evening.
Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ricky Nelson, Elvis...I love them all!
