Please tell me I’m not the last person to hear about a ‘haul’ video? Please.
My sisters & I were online shopping & they kept talking about checking for ‘haul videos’ to see what the clothes we were thinking of buying looked like. After realizing that we were most certainly NOT speaking about some sort of transportation videos I finally asked & they showed me these youtube videos girls their age make where they basically show you all the crap they just bought. Apparently the good ones leave you feeling like you just got a clothing review on a real live person. I guess I get it. (For example, I’ve heard this girl is pretty good & considering that video has over 826,000 views I’m gonna say girlfriend is doing something right) By the way, I feel like this is terrible to say but teenage girls drive me BUH-NANAS. I wanted to smack that kid. Isn’t that awful? I need to get over that considering I have two that are going to be all “OMGOSH LIKE FOR REAL!” before I know it. But I digress, my issue, not yours…
These haul videos did lead me to something pretty awesome though which is the purpose of this post, I had to share her with you asap, LISA ELDRIDGE. Omgosh, I’m OBSESSED. Did you see this pic that P instagrammed of me? These are the videos I was neglecting my husband to watch. Apparently she’s a celebrity makeup artist (Jessica Biel & Scarlett Johansson to name a few) & she does these fantastic video tutorials on everything from how to do a smokey eye to the best red lipstick for your skin tone. It doesn’t hurt that she has a ridiculously soothing British accent, she should seriously consider making videos where she just reads bedtime stories, but her tips just make sense. All in all, she’s a great teacher if you’d like to expand your makeup routine/rut a bit. In fact, her videos have inspired me to up my game, who knew I loved a baby cateye or a fuschia lip?? I mean seriously, if you told me, miss lip gloss, a year ago that I’d be completely comfortable wearing bright red or fuschia lipstick I would’ve thought you were a crackhead but much like crack, or so I’ve heard, it’s kind of fun once you try it!
I’ve had a handful of you requesting I put up a video of how I do my makeup for the LPM YouTube videos & since I have all these new goodies to share I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone, and don’t you dare make fun of my no makeup face! I either have really big man spuds for putting this out there or I’m just dumb. Perhaps a little of both.
