Hey everyone! Yvette here with an Eva Marie hair and makeup tutorial. Eva Marie is a Diva on WWE and is also on the reality show Total Divas on E!

Hey everyone! Today's video is another Halloween tutorial. This is Lady Tremaine aka the wicked stepmother from Cinderella. Cinderella is my favorite Disney princess movie so I really want to create a couple characters from it. Lady Tremaine has striking green eyes and sort of an ombre lip going on so I decided to bring some of her features into a real life makeup. I decided to do two versions of the stepmother a pretty version and then a wrinkled version. I hope you all enjoyed this video and I will see you in the next one!

Grim Reaper | Halloween Makeup

Hi everyone! That time of year is here...Halloweeeen! For the first of our Halloween videos I wanted to do something a little creepy. This is my version of the Grim Reaper. I created an exaggerated eye shadow that went all the way up to my hair line. I also went for hollow cheeks to look a little more skeletal. I wanted to draw on teeth but I didn't like how it came out so I went to my old faithful trick of making chapped lips. If you do decide to do teeth I would highly recommend it to pull the look together even more. Oh and also you can carry around a scythe to really freak people out! I hope you all enjoyed the video and thank you for watching!

Disclaimer: I do not recommend putting on contacts after you apply makeup. I only do this because my eyes cannot take contacts for a long period of time. My eyes start watering like crazy and then I can't see what I'm doing. Just quickly wanted to mention that for you all. :)

How I Contour & Highlight + My Best Makeup Tips

Hey everyone! Yvette here with my highly requested highlight and contouring video. Since my first get ready with me video [from a year ago] I got tons of requests on how to highlight and contour. I truly appreciate your support and please keep the request coming. So sorry this is long over due but I just wanted to wait until I upgraded my video equipment. Hope you all don't mind and appreciate the high quality.

This technique is definitely inspired by Kim Kardashian's makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, who uses a damp sponge to blend and correcting powders like Ben Nye's Banana powder to conceal. Since he revealed his secret I feel like I have seen this type of contouring and highlighting every where. However, I do feel like Josh also known as petrilude was the first to say that these are drag queen secrets which they have been doing on the stage for years.

Throughout the video I inserted some of my favorite and best makeup tips on how to contour and highlight. I touch on correcting concealers but didn't want to go too in depth because I do have a video all about it which you can view here. I hope you all like it. Enjoy!

Full list of products:
Makeup Forever primer
Real Techniques brush
Graftobian HD palette
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge
Ben Nye Banana Powder
Morphe Flat Contour brush
Makeup Forever Sculpting Kit 2
MAC 116 brush
Makeup Geek Infatuation blush
MAC Cheeky Bronze Mineralize Skinfinish

My BEST MAKEUP TIPS for contouring, highlighting, foundation & blush
 #1 Highlighting and contouring shades close to your skin tone give a more natural effect
 #2 When picking a foundation shade, choose one that matches the undertones of your chest
 #3 Having a light right above helps reveal your natural shadows. Helping mark out where to contour
 #4 When using your sponge use one side for your light shades & the other side for your dark
 #5 Correcting powders are not universal, when picking one keep your skint one in mind
 #6 Keep in mind the grayish cast that natural shadows have when picking a contour powder
 #7 For a more natural glow a pearly shade for fair skin works well. Warm golds compliment those with deeper complexions

Get Ready With Me ❤ A Night Out

Hey everyone! Yvette here with a fun glittery purple smokey look for a night out. If you saw my HUGE PHAMExpo haul you know I bought a bunch of fun new makeup here. I am super excited to start using them in tutorials like this boss ass glitter, which stole the show. I have heard great things about Violet Voss glitters so when I was getting ready the other night I had to reach for "The Fair" glitter. This glitter has so many different sparkles and lasted all night. I definitely had to wait for it to dry because it began to crease when I was doing the rest of my eyes. So that would probably be my only tip. Since the eyes were such a statement on their own, I had to top off this look with a mauve/nude lip. I hope you all like it. Enjoy!

Sin City A Dame To Kill For Gail | Grayscale Makeup

Hey everyone! I'm back! I took a small break from filming to get better from some whiplash I was going through. I'm all better now and I wanted to say thank you to everyone that sent me get well comments and messages!
Let's get onto the video! This look is inspired by Rosario Dawson's character Gail in the movie Sin City A Dame to Kill For. I took inspiration from her eye makeup in her character poster and the rest is inspired by how she looks in the film. She was completely black and white and had no other colors showing through. Sorry I didn't spray paint my hair black but I recently dyed my hair purple and I was afraid to stain it hehe. This look is a very easy way to make yourself look black and white without using hard to find products. Of course if you were to wear this out you would have to paint your hands and any other skin showing. I hope you guys enjoyed and I can't wait to film more videos!
