MAKEUP: My failed attempt at a 5 minute face – A Makeup Tutorial

I really wanted to do a 5-minute face video for you all, but apparently it actually takes me longer than 5 minutes, especially when I am talking! Lol.

Following is the list of products I use every single day. Like I wish I could tell you that I often go fresh-faced and makeup free. But I don’t. Like ever, ever, ever. I come from a long line of women who LOVE their makeup!

Following is the list of products that I am currently using and used in the makeup tutorial video.  And I tried to make it easy for you by giving you the links to where you can find these products. Some of these links are affiliate links and all are products that I love!


My 5-Minute Face Makeup Products:






At the beginning of the makeup tutorial video I mention the starter pack of colors that I got last spring from Younique so I could test several of their products and colors. You can find that HERE.


And there you go…. my 12-minute face or something like that. Lol.

To my creative business friends, if you are a part of my Inner Circle Coaching group, you know that I am a huge pusher of you doing Facebook LIVE videos to grow your online community. I personally always add a little extra makeup for my LIVE videos and my tv segments because otherwise TV can just really make you look washed out. You need extra emphasis on your features – hence the term STAGE MAKEUP. On normal days I don’t always use the bronzer, eyeliner or Younique lashes, but those help a ton when you are on camera to feel good about yourself (and hint… when you feel better about yourself you will be more likely to do more LIVE video!!!) ! Also, I have a lighting tip that is absolutely HUGE for whenever I do a Facebook LIVE video. You can get that here.

If you were able to sit thru this makeup tutorial video, you may also like to see a tutorial about my hair routine and tips for styling naturally curly and wavy hair.

And if you need help styling your clothing, especially as a busy creative entrepreneur, see how I’ve used Stitch Fix for the last 15 months so that I never have to go clothing shopping for myself (I love clothes but hate to shop)!!!

Hope these resources are all helpful for you!

    Just came across your blog and signed up. LOVE IT. I want to do videos so badly but look so tired. This is great. Yay VOLUMOUS I have used this ever since it came out I am sure lol. I build furniture and plenty of other DIY too. Looking forward to your facebook live.

    OH and by the way. You are gorgeous without the makeup up. Hones to goodness. A little mascara and a touch of foundation and you would look just as spectacular.

    🙂 xoxox Sheryl
