Happy Valentine’s Day! (V-Day Tutorial)

If you’ve been following me Instagram, you know that I’ve been on a half cut crease kick! I’ve been obsessed with creating makeup looks with this technique! If you’re stumped on what kind of eye makeup to wear tonight for Valentine’s, I would try it out! It’s a pink rose toned half cut crease look.

What are your plans for your today with your loved ones?

New YouTube Videos

To be quite honest, last semester hit me hard. I was at school everyday and I was constantly bombarded with homework. I got an internship as well and had to juggle my time around that. I was so exhausted that I had no time for YouTube.

However, winter break came and has now ended. Spring semester has officially started as of yesterday. I have uploaded two new videos on my YouTube recently so it would mean the world if you checked it out and show some love!

Life Update

Good morning guys! Happy New Year! This isn’t going to be some fancy blog post with a fancy header like my usual posts.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Life was happening. My school semesters have been crazy hectic. I miss blogging and with all the changes happening on Instagram, I think I want to get back into it. I’ve also been slacking off on my YouTube, which I also need to get back into.

I’ve already made a list of goals for 2017 and filmed a few videos for my channel already. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I hit my milestone of 50k followers. It’s amazing but one thing is so discouraging. The new IG algorithm… oh boy, I’ve never heard a single person say they like it. My photos don’t get as much engagement and I don’t receive the likes I used to get. Before the algorithm, I average 1k-3k likes on my photos and now I am barely hitting 400… last night I posted a picture and it only got 178 likes within 2 hours.

So I’m trying to find different ways to grow my channel. 2016 was a good year, I got to be apart of the new NYX campaign for their Total Control Drop Foundation, super exciting stuff!

Just a mini rant post. How do you all feel about the new IG algorithm? Are you seeing more engagement or has it dropped?

If you’re not following me on Instagram (monair), I would totally love it if you did!

Cheers loves!

Music Festival Inspired Makeup | Coachella/EDC

Hi all! If you love music as much as I do, then you probably know what is happening over in the desert for the next two weekends. That’s right, Coachella Music Festival! So I created a music festival inspired look that’s not only good for Coachella but for EDC as well and other upcoming music festivals.

I wish I was attending Coachella this year but unfortunately had to sell my tickets last minute due to midterms! It’s alright, there’s always next year, right?

Check out my video below & please like/subscribe while you’re at it, it would mean a lot to me!

What music festivals are you attending this spring and upcoming summer? Let me know! I can’t believe it’s already April. I’ll be at EDC Las Vegas again this year!

Easy Metallic Plum Smokey Eye

Black smokey eyes could be kind of intimidating at first so this easy metallic plum smokey eye is perfect for those who are just beginning to attempt really dark smoke eyes!

This shade is so easy to achieve, I only used two shades! To make this look a bit more fancy, I did a glitter inner corner highlight. However, you can opt out and use whatever you would like!

I hope you guys enjoy this makeup tutorial! This has got to be my favorite eye makeup look that I’ve done! Let me know if you have any questions!

 

SPRING MAKEUP TUTORIAL | Rose Gold & Purple

Spring is here and that means all the bright colors are coming out to play! However, I know that some of us aren’t too comfortable with going all out on bright colors so I did a makeup look with very warm toned shadows and pop of color with a bright lavender winged liner.

Hope you guys enjoy! I really want to get back into blogging but school has been hectic this semester! I can’t wait for summer! You’ll definitely see more posts from me then.

PROM MAKEUP | Soft Glam Eye Makeup Look

Prom season is approaching and I accidentally did an eye makeup look where I realized that I would have totally worn this look to my prom if I went! So I filmed a tutorial on it. It’s a really soft eye makeup look so if you want more of a natural and not so bold eye makeup look, I think this would perfect for you!

Would you be interested in seeing a more dramatic look for prom? Let me know!

 

VIDEO: Cranberry Smoked Eyes Tutorial

Rituel De Fille recently sent me a few of their products to try out and they’re all so beautiful! I create this very cranberry smokey eye with their Ash & Ember eye soot in Viscera.

If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m making it a habit to upload a video once a week! For now, most videos will be uploaded every Friday at 12PM PST. I’m so happy to finally have an idea of my uploading schedule! Hope you guys are excited as well!
