Makeup Monday: Try This With Me False Lashes

Makeup Monday

Over the past couple of years, I went from “sometimes putting eyeliner and lipstick on” to learning how to take care of your skin and how to do that with makeup. I just wanted to share the love for all things beauty and skin-care related. Let me know what you think!

Trying out a new series called Try This With Me, where I try out something I’ve never done before, and you experience it with me! I think it’s gonna be like a first impressions combined with some learning while doing, which is how I learn!

Today’s Try This With Me is false lashes for Makeup Monday! Before this video, I had never had false lashes before, and you get to follow along on my first time trying them on! I also included a couple of check-ins, and an end impression at the end of a 12 hour day!

Sorry for being off camera at times! I tried to cut out being off camera as much as possible, but the camera was definitely at the wrong angle most of the time.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for a Try This With Me, and I’ll see if I’m up for it!

My Five Favourite Animals

Like I said on last Sunday’s post, I want to post a new video each week on something random, like a “get to know me” video or a challenge or something. I’ve just been bit by the YouTube bug, so I like making stupid, random videos I guess! So here’s the start of some random videos I wanted to do!

For this first video, I decided to share with you my top five favourite types of animals, but this was really just an excuse to gush over cute animal pictures! Please let me know what your favourite types of animals are, and if you like the same animals as I do!

I want to do a list on my favourite Pokémon, my favourite comic book characters, my favourite movies, etc. What do you think, please let me know if this is something I should keep doing!

Inspiration Thursday: Confidence and DIY

Inspiration Thursday

Whenever I get to Thursday, I just feel like I need some extra inspiration to get me to Friday. This is what is getting me through today!

First thing is from one of my favourite Youtubers, Belinda Seline! She talks about ways you can be happy and confident. She’s amazing!

Next is a video from Philip DeFranco. I’m pretty sure I’ve put one of his videos on my Inspiration Thursday before, but this is different, he also talks about self-confidence in this video!

And lastly, I’ve been watching a lot of DIY and I’ve been particularly obsessed with this Canadian duo! These girls are so cute and their personalities are great! Here’s one DIY that I enjoyed since I’m also redoing my room!
