How To Apply Liquid Eyeliner {Blushing Basics Series}

hands down my most popular video on YouTube (with 70,000 hits and counting), i thought this would make a good Beauty Blog Backtrack. BBB will be posted every Friday to show you guest posts i have written for other blogs, or to repost popular posts.

i decided to create a series focusing on basic makeup application techniques. some future videos will include: how to apply mascara, lipstick, concealer and foundation.

if there are any other specific areas you would like a video for, please let me know.

ps. don't forget to enter my Julep Maven Sneak Peek Box giveaway, or my Clarisonic Mia giveaway!


  1. I love liquid eyeliner for the same reason. I don't tend to look like Droopy Dog (eyes) when I'm wearing it ;)

  2. eyeliner is one thing i really don't use because i just can't seem to master it :( i guess i need to keep practicing LOL

  3. Thanks for the tip! I'd really like to see a video about applying eyeshadow. I've seen them a thousand times, but I'm not still not sure about my color selection and application.

  4. Hi there! I just want you to know that I stumbled upon your blog and have really, really enjoyed it! I am not much of a "girlie-girl" and it seemed that what little girlie I did have in me had faded to the background since having my two little boys. Since finding your blog, I've been buying new make-up and trying new things. I'm excited to get myself ready in the morning instead of just hurrying through it! I think my husband has even noticed a difference!
    I would love it if you could do a series on easy everyday up-do's. I can blow dry and I can curl (thanks for that post by the way) but I am clueless when it comes to doing anything other than that!
    Keep up the great work!!!!

  5. Tiffany, i couldn't agree more! :)

    Kiwi, it is definitely all about practice. the more often you do it, the better you get.

    Ali, eyeshadow application and color selection would be a great addition to my {blushing basics} series. you should probably see that in a couple weeks. thanks!

    Melissa, thank you thank you for the compliments. i love getting feedback, especially when it is positive! haha. great idea for the easy everyday up-do's. i will definitely include that in the lineup of videos to come.

  6. Thanks for being my makeup mentor and giving me the courage to wear liquid eyeliner. After that Thanksgiving when Charlotte came and taught me the Taylor Swift look, I wasn't sure if I could pull if off, but thanks to your encouragement, I haven't gone back! :)
