Dermablend Smooth Indulgence Foundation vs. NEW Smooth Camo Foundation

Hi guys.  Today's video is comparing and demonstrating two products made my Dermablend.  Dermablend is known and recognized globally for having wonderful products to cover acne, rosacea, birthmarks, discoloration, age spots and even tattoos.  It has made a wonderful difference for those people who struggle with skin conditions on a daily basis.

But don't you HATE when they change a product you LOVE? Well thats what happened to me.  I was a user and lover of the Smooth Indulgence Foundation.  It wasn't as heavy as the cover creme, and got the job done.  You can still find it online (as linked above, link is affiliate) but it stores like Ulta, that sell it for purchase same day, you are going to find it replaced by the Smooth Camo Foundation. 

I had a really hard time getting this foundation to work the same way as the original formula did, but however I did find a technique to make it look FLAWLESS and make it last as long as my original smooth indulgence foundation did.  Don't believe it? I did a side by side comparison! Check it out to see the results!

Half Face HIGH END Half DRUGSTORE Makeup! DUPE? or NOT a DUPE?

Hello Everyone! Todays video is a fun one! This took a lot of time of researching.  Trying to find enough dupes in my collection to do one half of my face with high end makeup and the other half with drugstore!  I literally sat down and swatched almost every single makeup item I own!

The hardest was the lipsticks! I have like 50 pink lipsticks so some of these have got to be the same color, right?? Well apparently Im pretty dang good at not picking the same shades LOL.  So I went with a very popular dupe that is posted all over Instagram...and well if its really a dupe you will have to see for yourself!

It was really fun to see which products I had that were similar and get to know which items I would repurchase and which I wouldn't.  Heres some photos of the finished result! Can you tell which side is which?

Hmm...if you look closely you might be able to see a difference here. Although almost the same when applied one side of my eye shadow has faded.... Can you guess which side? 

Please ignore all the clutter on my fridge.  Yep, it happens. The one place my kids can't reach so lots of things tend to end up there!  :O

Dear Future Husband Megan Trainor Official Music Video Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys! Today's post is about the super popular new video from Megan Trainor called Dear Future Husband.  If you haven't seen the video, well you need too! Don't worry..ill wait. :)

I had a lot of fun recreating this look to suit my hooded eyes.  Her eyes are more angled and don't have as much brow bone area as mine do so I did have to change the wing of the liner slightly to fit my eye shape.

I hope you guys enjoy this look! Check out the full video tutorial below!
