Over the weekend, Harleen and I visited GenBeauty 2016 in San Francisco. GenBeauty is a makeup convention hosted by Ipsy. This was our second time attending, but the first time in San Francisco. Last year, we went to GenBeauty in Los Angeles. We wanted to see what was in store this year, so that we can compare it to our previous experience. After visiting two events, I thought I should share my experience. This may be a lengthy post, so please brace yourself!
Is it just me or are Halloween makeup looks the new costume? If you haven’t seen them, you must! Some of these creative looks are incredible. To be honest, I much rather prefer getting creative with my makeup then spending $100+ on a costume that probably won’t be popular the next year.
The first day of Autumn has passed and I’m still wearing a floral maxi! The weather is completely unpredictable in California and you never know what to expect. I am eagerly waiting for the rain to come so I can pull out my fall outfits. Pouring rain is my favorite! Of course, I would much rather be snuggled up indoors with a hot cup of coffee, but dressing up and getting outdoors entails its own type of thrill.
My past bridal client—turned blogger friend—and I teamed up to recreate her bridal makeup look. Sunia from PerfectPopSF made an absolutely stunning bride for her big day. She wore a traditional rustic colored outfit from Pakistan and adorned herself with unique jewelry pieces. For the actual wedding, I did airbrush make up since Sunia wanted a natural finish but in the tutorial I used regular MAC foundation. I did a classic smokey eye that complimented the outfit fantastically. Check out the tutorial and let me know what you guys think!
An added pop of color to the eyes truly makes any look unique in my opinion. I’m not an enthusiast of an overpowering amount of eyeshadow on my eyes but a bit of color truly brings attention to the eyes. Normally I tend to go towards more of a natural, common eye but I was inspired by a look created by Dress Your Face and I became eager to create the chocolate pistachio eyes myself! This look is a ton simpler than it seems and you don’t need many shades either. Be sure to see all of my other Youtube videos as well! Youtube Channel
