I am so FREAKING excited to start this new video series today! It’s called: Teach Me Your Ways! And basically, that’s what will be happening! Haha, I love learning, and I love hanging out with talented people! So in this series I’m asking people who are an expert at something to teach me, and all of us, how to do something cool, fun, or useful.
In order to make it an official series I asked Eric to help me record a little jingle to use at the beginning in each of the videos. ARE YOU IMPRESSED? He totally auto-tuned me. Hahaha. Isn’t he the best though? It’s so useful having a husband who is a music producer/sound engineer, ESPECIALLY when you are trying to build an empire and take over the world.
For the first video in Teach Me Your Ways I’m having my friend Kayti Oldham from The Beyouty Bureau teach me how to do an amped-up makeup look. But I am a complete moron when it comes to makeup, so this is good if you’re a complete beginner like me! OR even if you know a lot about makeup I bet you’ll love the product recommendations and applications Kayti comes up with.
I was inspired to do this video after speaking at the LuLaRoe conference to over 1000 people the other week. It was in Southern California, and I had to do my own makeup! HAHA now before I sound like a HUGE diva (too late?) Kayti spoils me because she is one of my best friends, and is always willing to doll me up when I have a big event. So I went to do my makeup, alone, after about a year of Kayti spoiling me silly and making me look hotter than I am, and I was like UHHHH WHAT DO I DO?! I really didn’t have any idea on how to do much more than powder, blush, and lipstick.
I have been practicing the skills Kayti taught me all week and I am looking SO HOT! Haha. But really. It feels good to be able to amp things up a bit when you want. Obviously I don’t do my makeup like this everyday, but I had a business lunch today and wanted to look nice, and it was very empowering to feel like I had a polished put-together look! Even if I was also wearing on over-sized pony shirt. Balance in all things people!
I know people like short videos, boom boom boom to the point, and I edited this sucker down a TON, but like I said, I also REALLY like to learn, so I tried to leave some good meaty info in there as well. After learning from Kayti I went online and bought 4 of the items, haha and have been loving every one!
So I hope you love this! I hope you’re excited about my new series! Please don’t tell me things you’d love to see on “Teach Me Your Ways!”
