Ruby's No Mirror Makeup Challenge!

Hi guys Ruby here with the no mirror makeup challenge!! I have been wanting to do this video for a while and it was also requested by  E Alaniz. Yvette is planning on doing this video as well so stay tuned for that :) I wanted to do a colorful look just to make it more challenging. You could kind of see a little bit of the covered mirrored behind the camera when I show the CS Palette and I promise you it was covered enough to not see myself I was just too lazy to cover the entire mirror lol.

Hope you guys enjoyed and I hope that you guys didn't mind the length of the video but I cut it down as much as I could without editing out my TV talk so you guys can get to know me a little more since I still don't talk too much on camera but I promise I'm trying to do better.  :))

Quick Tips: For Moms on the Go

Hi guys! Yvette here with a makeup tutorial requested by Xiomara. She's a busy mom who asked for some makeup tips that are quick and affordable. Everything I used is from the drugstore. Also, I used a lot of two-in-one products which saves time. I hope you like it girl. Enjoy!

Full list of products:
Revlon PhotoReady BB Cream
Sigma F84 Angled Kabuki brush
Revlon ColorStay concealer
Revlon Nearly Naked powder
   applied with Sonia Kashuk brush
Revlon ColorStay Torch Shadow Stick
   applied with Real Techniques blending brush
MAC Engraved (Revlon Grow Luscious liner is an exact dupe)
Wet N Wild Mega Plump waterproof mascara
Revlon ColoStay Ultimate Suede in Trendsetter
Wet N Wild Mellow Wine blush

Tip #1: Use two-in-one products
  - products like BB creams and shadow sticks save on a lot of time
  - a BB cream will be your foundation and moisturizer
  - a shadow sticks act as your primer and shadow

Tip #2: Use big brushes
  - apply your foundation not with a paddle but with a big brush, it spreads your makeup faster
  - apply your eyeshadow with a big blending brush it will do all of the work for you instead of going in with a small detailed brush

Tip #3: Eyeliner
  - liquid and gel are super time consuming a soft pencil is quick and easy

Tip #4: Long Wearing Color
  - a bold lip and cheek are the way to go, they add color and make it seem as if you spent a lot of time on your makeup. BEWARE some lipsticks that don't stain will bleed so make sure to get one that is long lasting

- EYELINER on the bottom lash line, it's not really necessary and for day time it can be a bit much. On your top lash line is somewhat of a must if you have small or tired eyes.
- HIGHLIGHT on your cheeks, it looks nice but for the most part its just an extra step that you can do without on those late days.
- BRONZER/CONTOUR, I know many women who can't live without this product but on those days that your running late a blush is always the way to go.
- LIP LINER, although I am a big fan of this product it takes precision to get your lips exact so skip this step if you can.
- GLOSS, this product does not last, and you need to keep checking on it and reapplying throughout the day, just skip it all together.

Sea Witch -- PinkStylist Villains In Vogue Entry #2

Hey guys! Ruby here with entry #2 for PinkStylist's contest Villains In Vogue. This look is a sea witch and I hope that came across lol. I had a very hard time creating this look because I got stuck for a very long time but I did like how it came out. I know the eyebrows aren't even, I haven't mastered covering eyebrows and drawing them on symmetrically but I covered up the bad one with the bangs of my wig ;-)  I had covered my eyebrows in the morning thinking I had time to film a video but I ended up having to leave with covered eyebrows. That's why some of my real eyebrow hair is poking out. So anyways I hope you guys appreciate my attempt at some very dramatic makeup and hope you enjoyed!
