Lets ditch tradition. Everyone loves the flowers, chocolate, teddy bears that don’t last past the month. They are great for every special occasion. No-one wants the traditional items. We want the makeup.

Makeup is a booming business not just for the makeup mogul but for every lady, man and child that has a fascination with color and detail.

Every beauty lover knows the only way to their heart is a true blood red matte lipstick, sensual candles, and a ton of bath bombs waiting to be unleashed. So here are a few things to get yourself or that makeup mogul.

The Eye Embellishment

Glitter and stickers make everything sweeter. Even if one is bitter; don’t let the glitter linger. That you will regret but don’t fret.

How could you not be in a good mood when you’re wearing glitter and or stickers on your face.

Keep the eyes neutral but grab a sticker and pop it on. Super easy and you will definitely get some attention.

Scrub A Dub

Skin is our largest organ. Before we can even apply our hail Mary primer, we need to exfoliate the skin. So many Youtubers that I follow, MannyMua, JeffreeStar, and a few others have been gushing over a timeless classic.

The Tatcha {Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser}. Retailing at only $16; it makes for a great addition to your valentines set.

Lippies for the Lips

Scrolling through the makeup reddit feed. I came across the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme. Suppose to be one the best drugstore lipsticks on the market. For only $6.50, with 8,644 reviews and 4.2 for a rating on ULTA. This lipstick was a must for long events especially schools days, and day dates; reapplying is tiring and its clutch friendly.

Oh the James Charles Brushes? Ha.

No James Charles did not make this list nor to the 2020 Grammys this year. However Jeffree Star’s collection has made it to our list. One they are pink!! So cute ontop of my vanity.

His kit comes with three face brushes (foundation, powder and concealer blender brush). The kit also includes four brushes for the eyes and its perfect purse size.

Pose.

Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph

Once you have bought all of your makeup now is the time to put your talents on display. Book a photoshoot for yourself or significant other.

Documenting your progress of your passion while you are exploring and creating. Is one of the best motivations to keep creating.

Once you’ve painted the picture; created your stills. It is the time to finally pay it forward. Start that Youtube channel you’ve been wanting to do.

Even start with a blog. No matter the medium in which you like to create.

Just be you and create.

Love Always,

Dottie.
