With so many people looking to pinch pennies and save these days, brides-to-be everywhere are discovering the fierceness of DIY divinity. Because the potential for do-it-yourself projects are only limited by the creator’s creativity, it’s no wonder that so many ladies in waiting are discovering their inner DIY divas and bringing do-it-yourself projects to the forefront of of bridal fashion.
And one area futures brides are really starting to dive into head first (pun intended) is makeup. While I’m a firm believer that putting on makeup is an art form – I mean helloooo?!?! You are painting a face! – I also know that practice makes perfect, which is why so many young ladies are taking to their colorful pallets and brushing on their most beautiful selves. It’s a fun way to experiment and create a whole new you without the cost of clothing, salon ‘dos or even (dun, dun, dun!) surgery!
Since so many girls begin experimenting with makeup at a young age, many often times develop a knack… But what about the ladies who feel they’re lacking the girl gene when it comes to makeup?? No worries!
I recently discovered my newest YouTube obsession while perusing the site for makeup reviews and came across (trumpets sound!) Michelle Phan. This Asian sensation beauty has an ahhh to the mazing talent for beautifying and applying all kinds of different makeup looks, and she reveals how others can get the same look in her easy, step by step videos.
But Michelle Phan doesn’t just give you the step by step process of applying the goods; she also gives you a list of what goods to use! Her channel page features everything from extensive step by step makeup tutorials and beauty tips and tricks to makeup savers and clear skin regulators. As an official Lancôme spokesperson, she is certifiably fabulous, and one of my favorite people to watch!
Below are some of my favorite tutorials, but feel free to check out Michelle Phan’s YouTube Channel for her entire beauty collection. And don’t forget, MK has our own YouTube Channel to give brides-to-be the inside scoop on wedding trends, traditions and products!
