NYE Makeup Tutorial + 3 Chic Outfits

Hi y'all!


I just realized that I have never been able to post a makeup tutorial in time for New Years Eve! So I'm pretty dang excited I got do this video & I added three outfit ideas. This is my first time doing an outfit video on my DSLR so please bear with me! Do y'all have any tips on what to do with yourself when showing outfits?! Haha I am clearly not a model so I wasn't sure what to do.... *queue  Ricky Bobby*


This video & editing probably took me a good 8 hours.... goodness. I'm glad I'm on vacation because I was wiped out afterwards!

I went for a bronze, intense smokey eye. I really love me some pretty neutrals, although I do like to rock a colorful look every now and then. I guess as I've grown older, my tastes have changed. Btw, I was using my studio lights which washed out my cheek colors. Still figuring them out!

As for the outfits, I was inspired to share my style and have been on a cape craze recently so wanted to showcase them. 

The 2 capes from AMI Club Wear were sent from the company (thank y'all!). The material is quite nice and thick... like a synthetic wool almost. My only complaint is that the button holes are smaller than the buttons so there's no way to button it close (short of me making them bigger). The black cape is my favorite because the opening is just holes. The blue cape has almost a tiny sleeve as the opening. I was surprised since I know knew AMI Club Wear for clubbing or Halloween outfits so I like finding new things from unexpected stores because not everyone will have the same piece like if I got it from Forever 21.

I really don't care to spend tons of money on clothes that I know I won't get a ton of wear from (currently on my treat-myself wishlist is a BCBG bandage skirt which I know I'll wear to pieces). I opt to spend more on shoes or handbags that I know I'll get a lot of use from so I like Forever 21 for cheap dresses.
