A Quick Summertime Makeup Look

Published in: Beauty Tips, Makeup Tips/How To, Video


Heya, ladies! How’s your Saturday coming along? This comes out of left field, but last night I saw and absolutely loved Pixar’s Up, their latest animated flick. OMG! It’s effing delightful — poignant, breathtaking to see — and it restored some of my faith in humanity. If there are people out there thoughtful and capable enough to make a film like Up… well, anyway, I can’t recommend it enough.


As for today’s video post, it’s just a quick summertime makeup look (click here to see the video) using a few of my favorite products. πŸ™‚

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!

    How simple and useful! Love it!

  2. Martha says:

    Up was indeed wonderful.

    If someone doesn’t get through the first 10 minutes without weeping like a newborn baby, they are a robot.

  3. Zara says:

    Really super cute! :3

    I’ve been curious about posietint but i’ve been a little hesitant, afraid that it would not show up on my tanned skin.

    But you look like you have a simmilar skintone… so now I don’t know. haha!

    Thanks for the video! Cute music too!

      Hi Zara,

      I was afraid it wouldn’t show up either, but it does. If you’re very tan you might have to use a few layers, but it’s worth it. Plus, it’s super easy to apply and blend.

    I saw Up yesterday as well, and I was crying everytime he looked through the adventure book after she died and during the scenes when she was hurt and it was soo sad πŸ™ Everything else was FANTASTIC, though!
    Love the jacket πŸ™‚

    Ha ha, the kitty image was so cute! I’m forever going to associate that cat with the lipgloss. πŸ™‚

    i saw UP as well. and it was amazing! i cried at least 4 times.. i couldn’t hold it in!

  10. Caitlin says:

    Cute video! And I saw Land of the Lost yesterday, a bit crude for supposedly being a kids flick, but funny to everyone who embraces how kitschy it is! I realllly want to see Up, since everyone is raving about it so much! Hopefully the bf will take me out to see it soon πŸ™‚ Have a great rest of your Saturday!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Caitlin,

      Did you ever watch Land of the Lost when you were a kid? I totally did! I will probably watch that one on DVD… Will Farrell always cracks me up, plus, I’m all about the kitsch. πŸ™‚

      You have a great rest of your weekend, too!

    I usually carry MAC wipes with me everywhere, but putting them in the cooler is such a good tip, especially for beach days (or regular old hot days like we’ve having)!

    Oh, and I saw Up last weekend (not the 3D one, though, it was sold out) and it was glorious! Cartoon or not, it was honestly one of the best movies I’ve seen in a really long time!

    PS: Keep the videos coming, I love!

    Hey karen, Bodyshop has a very pretty lipgloss, perfect for summer, you may want to check out. It is Liquid Lip Color No.2 Golden Coral. It is a gorgeous color!! And it’s my favorite lipgloss.

  13. Miss QQ says:

    Hi Karen! You look hot! Thanks, I really want to watch Up after what you said. Pixar has come up with great, inspiring movies in the past as well and I am impressed. I’m sure I will like this. Need to check when it opens.

  14. Sarah says:
