Celebrity Looks Makeup Tutorials

My Celeb!

Every once in a while someone will tell me I look like Adriana Lima. (a great thing to do before asking me for a favor)

I LOVE this compliment….even though I realize a few hard facts:
Things I DO NOT have in common with her:
a multi-million dollar modeling contract with Victoria’s Secret
professional basketball player husband
I could go on…

Things we do have in common:
dark hair
light eyes
the inability to comfortably close our mouth over our teeth.

I may just be a poor man’s version of Adriana Lima…
but hey,
I’ll take it.

Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions!

This photo is a perfect example of my “mirror face” it’s an involuntary reaction to looking in the mirror. I can not help it. I hope some of you also have mirror faces that look like blue steel from Zoolander. I have seen people do kissy faces in the mirror too, which is just as funny I think:)


I used:
MAC Linen eyeshadow
Smashbox eyewish palette 5 & 6
Black Eyeliner
LA Girl Eyeliner
Ardell Lashes – Demi Wispies
Makeup Forever HD Foundation – 130
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage – SC 3
Covergirl Perfect Blend (as lipliner) – Mink
Victoria’s Secret Gloss – Taffy Go Lucky
Light Pink Gloss
Smashbox – Artificial Light

    I love the look but I had a question about freckles. I’m really not too self conscious about them but I’m not sure how to use some of the products without looking like I’m trying to “cover” them. So I generally don’t use any foundation. Do I need to? PS You’re amazing!

    Gorgeous! I can’t wait to get to a store and get some products to attempt this…and attempt really is the key word here haha.

    I do have a couple questions though. I’ve watched so many of your videos in a row that they are all kind of running together at this point (I should have taken notes 😉 but I’ve noticed you use a few different highlighter type products for the different looks… if I can only buy one of them, which should I get?

    And also, I’m loving your green eyes! I’ve heard you mention you play around with colored contacts…any suggestions where to buy them? I’m out East so our stores aren’t the same, but have you found some good ones online? OK thanks! Sorry for so many questions!

    Haha! I also have a “mirror face”, which I never noticed until my now ex-girlfriend pointed it out to me and giggled when she saw me looking in the mirror one time. I was like, “what??” Lol, I was oblivious. *Sigh* memories

    I can see the resemblance for sure, but! The first time I ever saw you I thought you look a lot like Megan Fox! So so pretty! I’ve noticed that you pretty much use the Mink like almost all the time. This has changed my life. Just saying. It’s simplifying everything.

    Beautiful beautiful beautiful beautiful!!! I have been told I look like actress Heather Graham. I don’t see it, but hey if someone wants to think so who am I to convince them I don’t, right? Right!!! 🙂 A cheerleader for the arena football team, Talons, of San Antonio, Texas asked me several different times if I get told a lot that I look like Heather Graham. It made me smile. 😉

    I love your celebrity makeup tutorials. Would you please consider doing one of Taylor Swift’s look from the 2015 Billboard Music Awards?
