So this is officially the first time I have ever entered a makeup contest on Youtube. It was kinda a last minute decision, and I have to say I was a bit intimidated to enter. The dynamic duo of Pixiwoo, Samantha & Nicola, are professional makeup artists, so re-creating one of their looks was nothing to take lightly. I decided to take a gander through and pick a look that I though was pretty and that I feeled I could recreated to some extent. I’m not looking to win, so much am I looking to showcase my skills and challenge myself. This look was probably probably one of the more challenging looks I’ve ever. Doing looks like the contest entry lets me know that I can do even better looks, and that I do have talent when it comes to makeup.
Check out the look below. Full tutorial coming soon!

I was inspired to create this blog in part, because I love all that is makeup, hair, beauty, and fashion. I’m a true girly girl at heart, but I want to convey to all women, of all types practical beauty and fashion knowledge, wearable looks, and overall insight into the world of beauty. My blog will include articles, reviews, and tutorials on upcoming products, current products, and even some old faves.
