Makeup Tutorials

Sexy Swimmer Alert!

This video is my tutorial on how to look super cute when you are swimming ( even if you plan on ACTUALLY getting in the water 🙂 OH, and I use gloss in the video but if you made that lip stain I showed you it would work even better!

I used:

Tinted Moisture by The Balm
Hot Mama Blush by The Balm
Secret Camouflage by  Laura Mercier
Sun Dance bronzer by Rimmel London
Taffy Go Lucky gloss by Victoria Secret
Aviator sun glasses by WALMART! 5 bucks!

    I love your videos, and especially this one! You are beautiful, and amazing at what you do. Who wants to have raccoon eyes or drippy mascara at the pool? And.. us STG girls simply need our pool time 🙂

    Couldn’t you just use rubbing alcohol on your bronzer to reset it?

    You take it and make sure it’s all a fine powder, no big pieces. Then add a little of high % rubbing alcohol. Just make a thick paste and mix it around (with a toothpick or something) Use something to make it flat and smooth and push it down firmly into the compact. It takes a couple of hours to dry completely, but because it is alcohol and not water, it should evaporate without damaging or changing it. I’m sure you could google or youtube it. Hope this helps, you’re site sure is helping me!

    One of my most favorite things to do especially in the summer is get my lashes tinted. You get the look of mascara when you are swimming, but get to avoid the raccoon look. I love how it makes my eyes pop. 🙂 Just an idea!

    You can fix your broken bronzer! Break up the pieces more, add rubbing alcohol to it, spread it, and let it dry. Check out the link.

    Does this makeup all come off once you get your head wet? Is it waterproof?
