i love all of your makeup looks! they are all so great! you are so creative and imaginative with colours! i also wanted to ask how you got an actual, tangible version of your capital district identification pass??
Have you gone to the capitols website? I thought it was really interesting how the assign you a district and ID card. P.S I love your whole hunger games tutorials, I feel like it got everyone pumped up in the beauty world. But maybe for a capitol look, if you still want to do it, it could be more on a focus of editorial airbrushing? Just a thought. :D
Hell yeah I’ve been to the Capitol website! I even had them mail me a real ID card hahaha
That’s a good idea for the capitol. It will go up tomorrow. I still have no idea what I’m going to do for it haha, I have been so busy redesigning my website all weekend that I haven’t had any time to think about it!
i know you did a video for the new urban decay shadows, but are they really that different from the original shadows? like, are they really smoother, have less fall out? worth it at all?
I really like the new shadows, but that being said I dont have much experience with the old UD ones. I’ve had some of their palettes in the past, but it’s been awhile since I’ve played with them but I do remember some feeling kinda grainy, these new ones are all really smooth, even the mattes. I remember trying out the new blackout shade next to the old one at their HQ and the old one kinda skipped when applying it, while the new one went on nice and smooth without grabbing the skin. I don’t personally have any old shadows that match the ones I have in my palette, so I can’t comment 100% on how different they are.
First of all I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOVE district 4 makeup. and second, Your district 5 make up is on the district 5 facebook page. I just thought you should know! and I did district 12 and it came out amazing! So yeah. I must say your fab. :)
thaaaank you!! :D i just saw it was on their facebook page, thats so cool!!
Other than the ridiculous Capitol make-up (I actually agree with you that they pushed it a bit far), What did you think of the movie overall? Do you think it was a good book-to-movie adaptation?
i dont know how i feel haha. i didnt think it was BAD, but i felt like the beginning took forever, and the end was overly rushed. i felt like rue got 5 mins total screen time, so little that i couldnt even feel bad when she died because she was BARELY there. I thought that they started the whole peetaxkatniss stuff really late into it, and it was rushed (and i also thought they didnt push enough that she was doing it for the cameras, if i hadnt read the book i wouldnt have realized) i LOVED how they filmed the trackerjacker scene, i thought that was the most spot on part of the film. I LOOOOOOVED Ceasar Flickerman (stanley tucci was amazing as him, i was weary from the previews but he nailed it) and i adored rue and prim. I also really liked seneca and president snow, and i LOVED how they showed seneca’s “death” so to speak with the berries. brilliant!
overall right now i feel like its 7.5/10. i told my friend (who hasnt read the books) id see it with her tomorrow, maybe a 2nd watch and seeing it when i wasnt exhausted will make me like it more haha :)
The same(previous user response), there are many people who would never want to do any of the looks you have done. But I thought the capitol look was fantastic, they were completely as I imagined. I see no issue, but to each is there own, right?
i understand that, but the difference is that they are looks that i would wear. i wouldnt want to wear the makeup they did in the films haha. on another note, i wanted the video to come out yesterday because i’ve realized that doing 12 tutorials in a row is way too many for a series for viewers (many many comments of people being bored and over the hunger games videos) and im sort of ready to move on to something new.
why was there a copyright issue? I don't really understand how you were copying anything :/
i dont know why. i just got an email that said my video was taken down for copyright infringement, when there was nothing in the video that wasnt filmed by me, in my house. The only reason I can think of for being flagged is the thumbnail for the video having a district logo on it, but considering you can change the thumbnails on videos without doing anything to the actual video, thats a VERY extreme reason to accuse someone of stealing and demanding their video gets removed
I feel like they pushed it too far. I know that in the books its described as being insane, as its told from the perspective of someone who barely has basic necessities, but i feel like they wanted to emphasize that SO much in the movie that they made them seem downright alienish. i mean, i get it, but i feel like they passed the line from over-the-top to just plain ridiculous. I waited until i saw the movie before thinking of how i wanted to do a capitol look, but after seeing it all i can think is “who would ever WANT to look like that, let alone learn how?” haha
"Can I make the intro with this elaborate crazy Capitol look, go “here’s the Capitol look! Enjoy!” then it’s really a 5 second clip of me applying gold eyeliner and saying CINNA! And then it’s over" -- CAN YOU PLEASE.
I totally would. But the internet might implode. People went a little iffy when I accidentally called revlon lip butters “rimmel”, so if I made a lulztorial I’d have torches and pitchforks at my door lol
So, I think it would be hilarious if for your hunger games capitol tutorial you just put on gold eyeliner and were just like, "It's Cinna!" And have it be over in ten seconds after this whole long build up. Not a question but, uhh, Was your day good today?
Oh my god. Can I make the intro with this elaborate crazy Capitol look, go “here’s the Capitol look! Enjoy!” then it’s really a 5 second clip of me applying gold eyeliner and saying CINNA! And then it’s over
This is random, but I recently went back and watched your videos from when KiKi was missing and it made me so sad! I'm a cat mom myself and I don't know what I would do if Oliver went missing, which could happen because he's curious and loves to escape. After rewatching that, I'm going to get Oliver microchipped as soon as I can!
that was definitely a hard time! getting a microchip is definitely a good thing, just make sure you register it. if someone finds your animal and brings them to a vet, the vet will scan them and if no one registered the microchip then they really cant do much :/ happy shes here and safe!
other than L.A, what IMATS are you doing?? Could you make a video about tips and tricks for IMATS? I'm going for the first time [hopefully] this year to the Toronto one. I'm going alone, so I don't really know what I'm doing :\ slightly nervous!
as of right now im only planning to attend the LA one. IMATS is a trade show, so it’s lots of brands at discounted prices, along with classes you can attend. go early, bring cash and cards, and if you plan to attend any of the classes, make sure you find out what times they are at and get to the classroom early so you make sure you have a spot.
Next week I'll be flying out to see my bf and I'm taking some makeup with me but I also read that it's suggested to take your makeup with you as a carry-on to prevent it from getting broken/stolen. Do you have any tips on traveling with a makeup kit?
i always carry a good portion of my makeup with me if i can, mainly because i get paranoid. i see the way those dudes throw luggage on and off the plane! if I do need to pack it for whatever reason, i alway at least carry on my eyeshadow palettes that i know can break easier than most things. make sure liquids are in ziplock bags (cant tell you how many times i’ve arrived somewhere, opened my bag, and a good portion of stuff is covered in some liquid) and try and stuff your makeup bag between clothes so there is padding.
How do you like the Benefit They're Real! mascara? I've been considering trying it out, but don't want to waste my money! Btw, you look amazing! I wish I was that dedicated to getting fit!
if you like plastic spikey mascara wands then you’ll probably like it. i usually dont, thats why its not my favorite. but thanks, im not that dedicated haha that video was 2 years ago, slowwww weightloss (but ive heard thats usually more permanent than quick ones, so ill take it!)
What days do you post videos? I'm going to the Hunger Games midnight premiere, and I was wondering if the District 1 (my district) look will be out :) Thanks! I love your tutorials!
I try really hard to get these tutorials out on Wednesdays and Fridays. Although sometimes that doesn’t work out (ie last week) I promise all the district tutorials will be out before the Thursday of the midnight premiere :)
First of all OH MY GOSH. The district four look is sooooo gorgeous! And I was wondering what nail polish you're wearing in the video? My prom theme this year is Under the Sea and I'm definitely going to wear this look. :) I love your makeup tutorials, they're so bright and fun! Oh, and last thing, do you get your hair dyed at a salon or do you do it yourself at home?
Thank you so much!! It’s Chimera by OCC, it’s coming out in their new collection. And I get my hair dyed at a salon :)
