IMATS LA 2012 Haul and Vlog!!!

Hi guys! Yvette and Ruby here with our IMATS haul and experience. If you guys want to buy any of the products we show in the video, we have them all listed below! :) This is definitely one of our favorite times of the year, we get to see a lot of award winning makeup artists, take amazing classes, see YouTube gurus we love and of course buy makeup at great prices!

We did vlog a litttle bit, just kind of showing you different booths and what stock they had. And we did film Ve Neil's class! Which was uh-amazing!

Ve Neill is an award winning makeup artist and is known working on films like The Amazing Spider-Man (comes out JULY 3rd YAY!!), The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean, How the Grinch Stole Christmans, Mrs. Doubtfire, Batman Returns, Bettlejuice and the list goes on and on!! Ve Neil is also one of the judges of Face Off, a makeup competition reality show that airs on SyFy (which we love). If you want to see parts of the discussion from IMATS we've put the vid on our VLOG here. <coming soon

Another great discussion we went to was the Face Off panel, which was so fun and informative! Some of the contestants from Season 1 were there and all the contestants from Season 2 were there except Matt :( These guys are truly talented and amazing, we got to ask them questions and listen to their experiences and what they have been up to since the show. We also got a pleasant guest Glenn Hetrick! Who is an amazing winning makeup artist, known for working of films and TV shows like The Hunger Games, Legion, Blade II, The Chronicles of Riddick, X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Heroes and the list goes on and on!

TAG : $20 Makeup Challenge

Hi guys! Yvette here with my very first tag! The idea behind this tag is that you're traveling and some how you misplace your makeup bag, either the airline loses or something. And you only have $20 to replace all your products. This was really hard!! For many reasons, one being no brushes! I definiteley wanted to use my blending brush, but that alone would have taken up half my budget, if not all of it. The second thing that was really hard was foundation, I just simply couldn't do it with this budget and had to use concealer. All in all this was fun to do and I tag everyone to do it! Hope you guys like it. Enjoy!

Kleancolor Eye palette $1 (bought it at my local $1 store)
ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder $3 (Target)
ELF Brow Treat & Tame $3 (Target)

Hi guys for today's tutorial I'm going to be showing you how to take a metallic shimmery eye from day to night. Mixing metals is huge right now! In clothes, makeup and accessories.
