My First Youtube Video: National Pink Day MOTD

Hello Listas,

Hope everyone is having a great start of the week ready for it to be the weekend. I know I am. Lol.

I am a little late posting this considering this was last week. -_- When I heard there is a National Pink Day I am like HOLLA! I love pink because it is a color that makes me feel at my girliest. I tend to look more up to things because everything is rosy with colored glasses of pink. When it is October, I wear the hell out of pink. But at the same time when it comes to makeup I am like ohhhhh….. man it is still my love/hate relationship. I blame Candy Yum Yum from MAC because I am one of the few people that hate that shade. -_-

I do like fuchsia style pinks because I think it works better with my skin tone. But I have been eyeing Posie K from Kylie’s Lip Kit and wanted to use that shade to inspire me on a pinkish nude take.

I told myself this summer, I wanted to start my filming make up videos on YouTube. So I finally created my first YouTube video with the National Pink Day look. I want to learn and grow with makeup and excited to finally have the time to accomplish this goal. I downloaded Wondershare Filmora to edit the video and was able to learn quickly how to edit it. I originally had Fifth Harmony “Work from Home” as my music but YouTube or my Facebook wouldn’t let me download it because of copyright laws. 😒😒😔😐😣 I was extremely annoyed but learned about royalty free music that can be used in YouTube videos so I had to swap it out with those. If you follow me on Instagram, I have a clip of the tutorial with my original music on there. Please be sure to check out National Pink Day MOTD on my youtube channel.

THE LOOK:

Products used:

Eyes– Coastal Scents 88 Eye Palette, Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Eye Liner, Sephora The Mascara, and Wet n Wild Fergie EyeLiner in Ex-Stacey at the inner corner and waterline.

FaceSkinn Cosmetics BB Cream, Revlon Skinlights Illuminator, BH Cosmetics Blooming Radiance Mineral Foundation, Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit, and Ulta Contour Kit.

Brows– Anastasia Brow Dip in Dark Brown, Ardell Brow Kit and Elf Cosmetics Brow Lift

Lashes– Lilly Lashes in Lush

Lips-NYX Hot Pink and Fuchsia Lip Liner  fully lined on the lips and Stila Liquid Lipstick in Baci for an almost ombre effect.

Necklace– Betsey Johnson

Earrings-Macys (no two purr)😜

Thoughts on this:😍😚😘👄👯

I call this the workable pink. I feel if I can do looks like this, I can less hate pink makeup and love it more than ever. Creating the look was easy but putting the video together is where the serious work happens. I can see how it takes forever for movie editors to edit movies. I applaud the YouTubers that do this on a regular basis and appreciate their craft and process. This takes a lot of patience and you want the outcome to be to your standards. I am happy with the reward of creating this video and still have more to research and learn from the other YouTube gurus. I am ready to do another one but now that I know the rules with YouTube and copyright music I wont over stress myself out like I did with this video. Great learning lesson for growth.

Thank you guys for reading and checking out my first YouTube video ever!!! Follow me on my Youtube, Instagram and Facebook:jeokay20 @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Have a lovely Tuesday Listas, God bless and stay tuned for the next look!

PLL Series MOTD: Part 1 (Emily)

Hello Listas,

I have been slacking a lil bit and was supposed to have this blog up and running yesterday. -_-  I blame Netflix and getting hooked on Revenge. Show is too damn good. Can’t believe I never watched it when it was on ABC.

I have been thinking for a while now that I wanted to do a Pretty Little Liars MOTD series. I was excited when Netflix put season 6 up couple weeks ago. I missed all of it on Freeform because I had so many other shows to watch 😒 and when the summer premiere happened on Tuesday (6/21), I was rushing to get season 6 finished. Took me like 2.5 days. And it was so damn good. Loved it so much I ended up re-watching it again, just in case I missed anything. It was a good call for them to bring it 5 yrs forward. Brought me back to the One Tree Hill days. And Desperate Housewives. Man……I watch too much TV. When you bring a show 5 years forward, I don’t feel as guilty of being a 31 year old woman still catching shows that take place in high school. No shame in my game at all. I am so young at heart.😁

(no copyright infringement)

My favorite character on the show is Emily (Shay Mitchell.) She is drop dead gorgeous and love everything about her. She is my main WCE (no homo) I love how genuine her character is. She cares so much until it emotionally takes a toll on her. She truly wears her heart on her sleeves.

Recently, Shay attended the I Heart Radio Music Video Awards debuting her blonde hair (turns out it was a wig) in a bad ass thigh slit lingerie inspired black dress designed by Olcay Gulsen. Brings me back to the infamous Angelina Jolie thigh slit dress from 2012 Oscars. I just thought she looked stunning. I love her smokey eye. The gold hoop earrings. The belt…..everything worked. She was more than Emily. She was a goddess on the red carpet.

THE LOOK: (took so many selfies to get this, smh)

Products used:

Eyes– Urban Decay Smokey Eye Palette, Morphe Gel Liner, Sephora The Mascara, and Morphe Gel Liner.

FaceSkinn Cosmetics BB Cream, Revlon Skinlights Illuminator, BH Cosmetics Blooming Radiance Mineral Foundation, Lancome Tient Foundation, Laura Geller Champagne Makeup Primer, Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit, NYX Butt-Naked Palette Highlighters and Ulta Contour Kit.

Brows– Anastasia Brow Dip in Dark Brown, Ardell Brow Kit and Elf Cosmetics Brow Lift

Lashes– Lena Lashes in Monroe

Lips-Kylie Cosmetics Dolce K Liquid Lipstick and True Brown K lip liner fully lined on the lips.

Dress– Bebe

Thoughts on this:😍😚😘

There are not a lot of times that I feel sexy but I completely felt sexy. Like I was on the red carpet with her. Did I get to go anywhere with my look? Nope? And that is okay. I was excited to do this look just because I couldn’t wait to watch PLL since it was the summer season opener. People ask why do you watch the show and for me it is an escape. You just can’t stop watching. I totally get it is completely unrealistic. Wouldn’t mind having friends of mine that are inner detectives finding out who is this mysterious bully called A. But I do have nosy friends (incuding myself.) And that is as real as it gets. LMAO.😁😍👄👀  I was glad to have a dress in my closet similar to Shay’s. I will have to post a full length picture of it on since I wasn’t able to do that. Smh.

Thank you guys for reading my Part 1 of my PLL series. Follow me on my Instagram and Facebook: @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Have a lovely Thursday Listas, God bless and stay tuned for the next look!

Orange for OITNB MOTD

Hello Listas,

In case ya’ll didn’t know…..today is the first day of summer. LOL! It is comical to me because it has been so effin hotttttttttttttt outside, I could have sworn summer already done been started. I can’t even be outside for 10 minutes without dripping. -_- Gotta love Texas weather….(NOT!)

If you are a Netflix junkie like me, Orange is the New Black started back Friday. I already told myself I am not gonna binge it. I am going to watch one episode a week and treat it as a regular sitcom. Or that is what I am telling myself. Hope I follow through. LOL! I think I will…..because I picked up watching Revenge. And then Pretty Little Liars starts back tomorrow. #winningwithtv

Orange is not necessarily my go to color but think it gives a dose of friendliness and spunk. Not to mention it makes me think of Nickelodeon giving the kid friendliness of the color orange or can be taken as being neutral. Okay, enough with this color theory lesson! 😁😄😉

THE LOOK:

Before and after the beat.

Products used:

Eyes- Coastal Scents 88 palette, Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Eye Liner, Makeup Forever Smokey Extravaganza Mascara, and Morphe Gel Liner.

Face –Skinn Cosmetics BB Cream, Revlon Skinlights Illuminator, BH Cosmetics Blooming Radiance Mineral Foundation, Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit, NYX Butt-Naked Palette Highlighters and Ulta Contour Kit.

Brows- Ardell Brow Kit and Elf Cosmetics Brow Lift

Lashes – Dodo Lashes

Lips-NYX Lip liner in Pumpkin (HATE) at center of lip, Mac Cosmetics Brick Lip Liner (fully lined) and So Chaud Matte Lipstick on top.

Thoughts on this:

Color for me is like a crayon box. Or box of chocolates. Whatever. Potato, Puhtatoe. Never know how it will come out until you have tried it. I have done orange inspired makeup before but I like how I did make this a more verstatile look. It could work for work, going out, dinner, etc. Would love to do this again but with more edge to it! If you seen from my previous blogs from last year, I did a OITNB 4 part series. My very first blog was OITNB Part 1, (tearface) you will see a difference from then to now. I  have grown so much in make up. I am very grateful to youtube, facebook groups, instagram, etc., that continues to push me to just as good as anyone else. And I am still learning. Very fond memories.

Thank you guys for reading and follow me on my Instagram and Facebook: @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Have a lovely start of the week Listas, and God bless!

Pray For Orlando/Gun Awareness Month MOTD

Hello Listas!

Hope everyone is having a great start of the week.

Lately, with the tragedy that happened in Orlando, my heart is completely heavy. It is like I can’t completely concentrate what I am doing. The fact that someone felt so comfortable to kill almost 50 people because of their sexual preference is just inhumane, cold and disgusting. In general, there has been so much that has been going on this year. I dont know if I can say its been a great year. We lost quite a few people. Muhammad Ali, Prince, Christina Grimmie, David Bowie, and Alan Rickman!! I now catch myself listening to throw back music more than what is playing right now on youtube. Mostly the millenials tho. But I don’t know….. this massacre in the Orlando has impacted me so much that I just feel really down.

June is Gun Awareness Month where people represent wearing the color orange on fighting against gun violence. I know there are so many people that have a strong view about this and I live in Texas where they just passed the open carry law (I DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS.)  As a school teacher, I know I am not going to be ever comfortable around guns. Especially with how people are dying so quickly from it and anyone can purchase a gun. ANYONE!!!  Assault rifles, 45 calibers…..you name it. As long as the cash is there, it can be purchased by anyone. Sorry if this offends anyone and respect everyone’s view about their second amendment right, but for me, I am just sick of seeing deaths on the news due to gun violence.

Enough with my rambling……back to blogging business. I know the only way to pull me out of my funk is doing my makeup.I wanted to create a look where it is like an ethereal rainbow mask with a metallic orange lip. I been contemplating if I should order metallic liquid lipstick, because it is trending now thanks to Kylie Jenner and Coachella pics on Instagram. I enjoy seeing her beautiful shades on her instagram and decided to create my own metallic lip with NYX Wicked Lipstick and gold shimmering eyeshadow.

THE LOOK:

 

Products used:

Eyes- Coastal Scents 88 palette, Gerard Cosmetics Liquid Eye Liner, NYX Liquid Liner in Vivid Blossom, Urban Decay  24/7 Liquid Liner in Woodstock, Makeup Forever Smokey Extravaganza Mascara, and Revlon Photoready Eye Pencil in Canary Yellow

Face –Skinn Cosmetics BB Cream, Revlon Skinlights Illuminator, Bellapierre Mineral Foundation, and Ulta Contour Kit.

Brows- Coastal Scents blue shadows, NYC Color Eyeliner- In the Navy, and  blue pressed glitter

Lashes – Dodo Lashes

Lips-NYX Wicked Lipstick in Mischievous at center of lips, Mac Cosmetics Brick Lip Liner (fully lined) and So Chaud Lipstick on top.

Thoughts on this:

This made me feel a lot better. There is something about being surrounded with your brushes, vanity, and cosmetic chilluns just looking at you saying, “Play with me.” For me it is almost as good as talking  to your best friend. I haven’t went this out of the norm since Halloween with my Black Swan Look. Makes me even more excited for Halloween.

Thank you guys for reading and follow me on my Instagram and Facebook: @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Have a lovely Tuesday  Listas,  and continue to pray for Orlando! God Bless.

SonjdraDeluxe Dupe MOTD

Hello Listas!

Hope everyone is having an easy, breezy Saturday. It is hot as hell in Houston right now. -_-

Makeup Maniacs 2 (facebook makeup group I’m in) does it once again with an amazing theme for this week. One of the members, @Peoniesandbrunch (instagram) or peoniesandbrunch (blog…follow her), created a theme for this week as favorite youtube/instagram makeup guru. I got so excited because I guess it was a given for me. I already knew who I would do.

SonjdraDeluxe is one of my MAIN makeup muses. She is one of the first people I started to watch when it came to makeup tutorials. The way she does her makeup so effortlessly, how she applies it and makes it seem so easy breezy. I think she is perfect. Love her style, her hair, her brows…… everything about her!! If you don’t follow her, I highly recommend you do so. She is awesome!

My interpretation of the @Sonjdradeluxe special.😁😁👄💘☝

THE LOOK:

Products used:

Eyes- Coastal Scents 88 palette, Lorac Pro Gel Liner in Cobalt Maybelline Color Tattoo in Temacious Teal and Studio Gel Liner, and Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara

Face= BH Cosmetics Blooming Radiance Mineral Foundation, Bare Minerals Mineral Foundation, NYX Cosmetics Butt Naked Palette  highlighters, Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit, and Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator.

Brows- Ardell Brow Kit, and Elf Cosmetics Brow Lift

Lips- NYX Matte Lipstick in Maison and Laura Geller Color Drenched Lip Gloss in Cafe au Lait

I loved doing this. I will never be into lip gloss since I am so addicted to liquid lipstick but I enjoyed how moisturizing my lips were with the Laura Geller gloss. I did come through a few challenges, but only because I am my own worst critic, and wanted it to be exactly like Sonjdradeluxe. Hope I did her proud . 🙂 😍😁😚😘😤

Thank you guys for reading and checking my Sonjdradeluxe look . Follow me on my Instagram and Facebook: @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Barbie Inspired MOTD

Hello Listas!

Feels so good to be back in the groove of things with blogging. I love SUMMERTIME! I love how much more time I have for things. I am so thankful for these 2 and a half months off. But I am sure it will go by very quick. -_-

So Barbie? Why Barbie?  Makeup Maniacs 2 (facebook makeup group I am one of the admins too) one of the members, @brookecarlson2 ,created a theme for the week as Barbie. At first, I am immediately scared only because I didn’t want to come off clown looking or Jemimaish. There was a time I loveeeeeeed pinks couple years ago, and it seems as I have gotten older I just don’t love pinks like I used to. I don’t know. Makes me kind of sad thinking about it. I am one of the few that hates Candy Yum Yum and that shade was made popular because of Rihanna.I think I hate it more because I felt it didn’t work well with my skin tone.  Le sighs.😣😢

(no copyright infringement)

As a kid, I remember loving Barbie with all my heart. I was the girl that wanted the life size Barbie. I wanted the Dream House, Beach House, convertible etc., (Never did get it as a kid)😔😢😣 She was perfect to me. Everything about her. Perfect! I am sure if I up kept my Barbies as a kid rather than stripping them from their clothes and cutting their hair (SMH) I would have been a proud collector.

There are so many wonderful diverse renditions of Barbie: Asian, Native American etc., and even celebrities like Brandy (who I loveeeeee) have their own endorsed Barbie made doll. I still will always hold a soft spot in my heart for Barbie. We all know that Barbie’s favorite color is pink of course so….here is my own rendition of symbolizing the icon named Barbie.

(no copyright infringement)

So here it is….Barbie, Barbie, Barbie.😁😁👄💘☝

THE LOOK:

Products used:

Eyes- Coastal Scents 88 palette, Colour Pop Eyeshadow in Liberty, Wet n Wild H2O Liquid Liner, Essence Cosmetics White Eyeliner, Maybelline Color Tattoo in Silver Strike, and Sephora The Mascara

Face= Dermablend Setting Powder, NYX Cosmetics Butt Naked Palette blush and highlighters, Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit

Brows- Ardell Brow Kit, and Elf Cosmetics Brow Lift

Lashes -Lilly Lashes in Lush

Lips- Too Faced Cosmetics Melted Lipstick in Peony

Thoughts on this:

This was so much fun for me than what I anticipated. I love trying things new even though I get a little scared about it. I did feel like Barbie minus the Ken. LMAO. Not that he is needed anyyyyyyyyways. The only thing missing however, was a big Nicki Minaj Barbie Necklace around my neck. I think i need to go shopping for a Barbie necklace. 😁😁😁😍

Thank you guys for reading and checking me out. Follow me on my Instagram and Facebook: @thehautelista and The Hautelista.

Once again, it feels great to be back blogging and bringing more of my personality back on digital web paper.

Have a lovely night little listas, and stay tuned for the next look……

Highlighter Challenge MOTD

Hello Lovelies!

School is out and now I can be back concentrating on my blog because it summer time. YARRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

As I am trolling on Instagram, I  began to notice a trend going on with doing a full face of makeup using only highlighters on the face. At first, I am like hmmmm…this is interesting…..let me find out what this is about. I loveeeeeeeeeeee highlighter so much, I don’t mind if I look like I’m sweating  in my pictures. Smh. I love to look like I’m glowing to makeup gods.😁😁👄💘☝

As I continue to learn more, I remember a while back last month watching a meme video of  mariya.ae doing a full face of makeup using only highlighters. The meme was about how people get when they buy a new highlighter. I thought it was funny and brilliant. Then come to find out, NikkiTutorials and Jeffree Star both create video tutorials using only highlighters and start the #highlighterchallenge on Instagram inspired by mariya.ae.

Highlighter Challenge accepted! Rather I look like a glazed donut or Goldmember from Austin Powers, my goal was to glow like J Lo times ten. ‪#‎highlighterchallenge‬

Products used:

Foundation- Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bronze Light, ELF Cosmetics Shimmering Facial Whip in Pink Lemonade, Laura Geller Under Makeup Primer in Champagne, and Dermablend Setting Powder.
