Kicking off Game Day Makeup!

Hi Everyone! There's a new series on Beauty Broadcast! It's called Game Day makeup. The first video is prompted by a viewer request. Danielle is a subscriber, and she sent me a message asking for an Ohio State makeup look that she could wear to games. As a former college cheerleader, I thought a video that incorporated some school spirit would be fun! But then I thought... why not continue it through football season?

You'll notice a poll on the right hand side of my blog- you can vote for the team & colors that you want to see used in the next tutorial! Cast your vote by Friday- when the winning tutorial will be revealed!

Please remember- your school's colors can easily be substituted for these looks! Make it your own & have fun with it! Thanks for watching!

Beauty Broadcast on Daily Booth!

Hey everyone! So surely you know about Beauty Broadcast on YouTube. And on Twitter. And on Facebook. And that thing called Formspring. But guess what? Now I've entered the Daily Booth world! I'm just getting acquainted with this, but it seems like a photo-a-day kind of thing? I thought it would be PERFECT for showing FOTD's (Face of the day) where I let you know all the makeup items I'm wearing on my face- or even OOTD (Outfit of the day) where I show you what I'm wearing... heck, why not HOTD (Hairdo of the day?) Anyway... I thought it sounded like fun! Feel free to check mine out! I'll do my best to keep it updated! :D

To get a closer look, head to

Hope you all have a great week!

Look what I found at Claire's!

Hey everyone! Not too long ago I was browsing my local Claire's accessories store (where I find a lot of my jewelry) and I started looking at the cosmetics area. They have quite a few different eye & lip palettes (I've tried a few of their shadow products- some of them are quite good)- but this is the first time I've checked out their nails & lashes! I actually didn't even realize they were sold there until now. I haven't used the nails or lashes yet, but I thought the designs were really cute!
Floral & polka dot nail designs (glue is included)

A couple of styles of lashes- I plan to use my DUO glue with these :)

Have you tried any items from the Claire's cosmetics section? What did you think?

Review-a-thon #2 FOTD

Hey everyone! I had some questions about the makeup look I was wearing during yesterday's review-a-thon. (check out my YouTube channel to watch the videos). So here's a rundown of everything I had on my face! Is a listing of makeup products I was wearing in a video something you'd like to see regularly in the information bar? If many of you are interested, I'll start putting that info alongside my videos.
Aveeno Ultra Calming Moisturizer
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup in Natural Beige
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit in Natural (under-eye area)
Lancome Dual Finish Pressed Powder in Matte Buff II (over T-zone)
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Light (lightly dusted all over)
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (contour)
Cover Girl Cheekers Blush in Plumberry Glow (apples of cheeks)
Coastal Scents Sunless Body Art- Medium (lightly dusted on cheekbones)
Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Primer
MAC Trax (on the lid & just above crease)
MAC Sketch (crease)
MAC Shroom (highlight)
Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Liner pen in Ebony (upper lash line)
Maybelline Define-a-Line pencil- Black (on waterline, smudged on outer lower corner)
Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara
Ardell Fashion Lashes #101 Demi
Coastal Scents lip liner in Pinky (blended out- sheer application)
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in French Kiss
I also had some questions about the earrings I was wearing. These large hoops are some of my favorite earrings ever! I got them for probably $5 or so at Claire's (an accessory store). It was at least six months to a year ago that I picked them up, so I'm not sure about their availability anymore. I love the realistic design of the roses & how the pink really pops. I usually pair them with black and make these earrings my stand0out piece with my outfit.

Thanks so much for taking the time to watch my review-a-thon! I appreciate your kind feedback!! :D
