kutv- fresh living: tween makeup/back to school tips


with my cute tween models


embroidered dress c/o from coco and main
dolce vita boots from nordstrom




fresh, fun and affordable makeup from target- all under $10 each


vanessa, 10yrs old
"sweet heart"
clear mascara, pink shimmery blush and pink lipgloss

 



emily,12yrs old
"sporty spice aka the tomboy"
shimmer bronzer, brown mascara, pink lipgloss




abbie, 13yrs old

mineral foundation, soft eyeshadow trio pallet, brown eyeliner, brown mascara, 
rose blush, rose lipgloss




dyllan, 14yrs
"sassy babe"
bb creme, gold glitter gel eyeliner, black mascara, pink blush, hot pink lipgloss



this segment was super fun to do. 
tweens are one of my favorite to teach makeup to because they are so eager and so 
excited to learn makeup.
a common mistake that all young girls do is dive in and apply too much makeup.
a good rule of thumb to remember is to start slow and build up with age, yet applying each tween's unique personality into their look.
(which is what i did on each one of my cute models.)
* side note, please excuse my mommy brain.. 
as i was talking during the segment i would blank out- thanks to lack of sleep 
(thanks to my poor teething babe) oh man..
 if you have any questions please let me know :)

ron was jealous of my high-waisted pants


we needed some props and so these were the ones laying around! haha


all products can be purchased at ulta beauty
product details and tips:

1. l'oread magic anti-redness correcting primer. 
primers are super important, even in the summer time. primers help even our your imperfections. it fills in any fine lines or wrinkles, leaving your skin ready of a smooth foundation coverage. this primer is awesome because it evens out all red tones. a lot of us get flushed of a little sunburnt in the summer, so this is the perfect primer. 

2. revlon photo ready concealer.
using a slightly tacky dense stick concealer with your fingers will stay put longer than liquid concealer.
3. bare minerals complexion rescue
tinted moisturizer is sheer yet gives you options to build up your coverage, choose a tinted moisturizer that contains at least 30 spf.

4. urban decay naked skin 
need more coverage, layer on over your tinted moisturizer or use alone. this liquid makeup is weightless and luminous, giving your a demi matte finish.

5. bobby brown bronzer
pick a bronzer with a peachy-pink hue that contains shimmer. summer is the perfect time to incorporate your shimmer bronzers. focus on places the sun would naturally hit your face, like your cheek bones, your hairline, the bridge of your nose and your chin.

6. taste blissful cheek stain.
two-in-one products are awesome. dab on some cheek stain and use it as a lip stain as well. choose a color that best resembles your natural flush. 

7. maybelline color tattoos 24hr and nyx high voltage lipsticks.
 add a pop of vibrant color. be it your eyeshadow or your lip color! summer time is the best time to experiment with fun fresh shades.

8. covergirl max volume flamed out mascara.
 use a water resistant mascara in place of a water proof mascara. it is less drying and easier to remove, yet smear free. so you can steer clear of "raccoon eyes" at the end of the day.

9. nyx matte blotting paper
use blotting tissues in place of pressed or loose powders. this way your sweat won't clump up the powder and is super quick and easy. focus on your forehead, the bridge of your nose, your cheeks and your chin.


i hope this helps you stay melty-face-free all summer long!!

on mahh bodayy:
chicago bulls sweatshirt- rue21, diy torn black skinny jeans- forever21
cowboy boots- old, bracelets- alex and ani, lipstick- stila "fiery"

no bull about it!!
sport these trendy ripped black skinny jeans yourself for under $10!!
how??!!
whelp first, go get these jeans they are like $7 at forever 21 or you can use your own.
i like to put the jeans on first and feel where my knees hit, then i mark it with a permanent marker. 
slip off the jeans and cut your holes. 
i usually go smaller at first with the holes and then i rip it bigger. 
then i try them on again to see if the holes need to be bigger, etc.
no hole is too big :) hehe
*sidenote: if you like your holes more frayed, toss your jeans in the wash and then dry them in the dryer
super super easy!!
