Double SNOW WHITE Tutorial, Part 1

IMG_1651

Good morning everyone. I’ve said this many times but for those who didn’t know, my nickname is “Snow White,” and has been since I was little due to my really dark hair, brown eyes, and fair skin. My family members and friends still call me that. Because of this and that I’ve always loved Snow White and have embraced having her as my nickname I decided to do a Snow White tutorial. Her look is very on point to my beauty style, hence why I get called her, and wanted to show step by step instructions to create a fairy tale Snow White makeup look. 

   Now this makeup look is very beautiful and very simple so I decided to do a two part makeup Snow White tutorial; THE FIRST STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL HERE IS MY SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL BEFORE SHE EATS THE POISON APPLE BY THE EVIL QUEEN/WITCH.

   THE SECOND TUTORIAL COMING UP AFTER THIS, IS MY PERSONAL SNOW WHITE TUTORIAL AFTER SHE EATS AND SURVIVES THE APPLE! OF COURSE SHE SURVIVES THE POISON, SHE GETS POISONED BY A WITCH AND SHE IS SNOW WHITE, WHICH IS MY NICKNAME AND I’M A WITCH! BOOM!!!!

Here is my first innocent Snow White step by step tutorial. It’s a a very simple tutorial that anyone can wear on a daily basis. It’s a very beautiful vintage Disney look that anyone of any skin tone can pull off. I’ll tell you exact what I did to create this look plus the products I used:

For my first step, I applied my foundation with a beauty blender and I used Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able full coverage foundation. It’s great full coverage so I didn’t need concealer.

   The second thing I did after applying my foundation was to set it with powder. I decided to use my gorgeous LaMer setting powder. That setting powder is definitely a luxury powder and has very fine mica sparkles in it to give your face a soft beautiful finish. Under my eyes, I used the Laura Mercier  Secret Brightening Powder to  help make my eyes sparkle even more.

The third step was doing my eye makeup. This is very easy to recreate. Snow White didn’t really wear eye shadow or eyeliner, especially my signature pinup winged liner. She was a natural beauty. I still wanted to give her a light eye definition so this was I used:

For eyeshadow, I first used my “Tako” white shadow from Sugar pill just in the inner corners. Then I used my classic favorite nude eyeshadow Revlon color stay quad and took the lightest color and swept it all over my eyelid. I wanted to give my crease a light definition so from the same Revlon quad palette, “Addictive 500,” I took the second to lightest shade with the same brush I used before and swept it the crease.

                     For eyeliner, I used my Laura Mercier cake eyeliner to give a little definition. Again I wasn’t planning on doing a big wing so I used the cake liner just to simply line my eyes making them look bigger. I curled my lashes and applied my Clinique High Impact mascara just on my top lashes. Again the purpose of this makeup look is basically to make the eyes look bigger like Snow White.

                    For my brows I kept them natural and just used the dark brown brow gel from Brow Bar by Reema just to keep the hairs in place.

After that I applied a soft pink blush to just the apples of my cheeks to give a natural flushed look. For my blush, I used my MAC Peony Pink blush.

For my last step for this look, all I had left was lipstick. Snow White had beautiful red lips so finding a good red lip color was very easy for me. I used the 24/7 Urban Decay lip liner in 714 and my Jeffree Star Velour liquid lip in “Cherry Wet.”  I then set my makeup with my new cherry matte setting spray from Pacifica beauty.

Those are all my steps to create my “Snow White” makeup tutorial, (before she eats the poison apple.) Stay tuned for part 2 of this tutorial to see what I look like after surviving the poison.

   The Poison Apple and Snow White necklace are from my girl  Luna Moon Gothic and my flower apple hair clip is from Pinups and Pearls.

Difference Between French Girls and American Girls Regarding Makeup

I briefly lived in Paris many years ago and have a lot of French friends. I also have a huge collection on French novels, Style tips, French mannerisms, and more. I thought this would be a great topic to talk about.

DISCLAIMER: OBVIOUSLY NOT ALL FRENCH AND AMERICAN GIRLS DO THIS AS A MAKEUP ROUTINE, BUT THE MAJORITY DO FROM MY OBSERVATION AND TALKING TO MY FRENCH friends.

When it comes to French women, they tend to wear a lot less makeup than Americans. Nowadays in American, people tend to wear a full face of makeup, from huge coverage foundation, a bunch of eye shadow colors, a lot of contouring, fake lashes everyday, etc. (I sometimes do this too, except for maybe the contouring which I only do on some photoshoots.) 

French Girls are different. They would rather spend their money on skincare, the best they can afford to make sure their skin looks the best without covering it up with a lot of makeup.

The French girl’s philosophy is to enhance their natural features, (which has a very retro and vintage flair about it which you all know I love,) that give them their “joie de vivre.”

Here’s a typical routine most French Girls have with their skincare and makeup:

For skincare they use gentle cleansers that work for their specific skin type. They apply their eye cream, and they prime the skin. But when they do prime the skin, it’s usually a primer that doubles as a moisturizer such as BOBBI BROWN’S FACE BASE. Unless their skin needs a lot of coverage, they usually will use a BB or CC cream with some sunscreen instead of foundation. Like I said before when it comes to French makeup, the ladies are more interested in naturally glowing from within.

When it comes to applying concealer, the like to use it under their eyes for brightening and on any blemishes or imperfections. A lot of Americans love applying the concealer every where to brighten their whole face which can feel heavy on the skin and/or clog your pores. After the French apply their concealer, the use either loose or compact setting powder to set their makeup by gently pressing it into the skin with the concealer, either with a beauty blender a powder puff, or a kabuki style brush. They don’t tend to swirl the powder around the face for fear they might wipe off some of their concealer, foundation, or BB/CC cream.

When it comes to eye makeup, there are different ways French ladies do this look. The first way is to just curl your lashes and apply a beautiful mascara. The second way is for French women to use eyeshadow but it usually tends to be a neutral color, a pastel color all over the lids. Then curl their lashes and apply mascara. Very subtle and chic. The last way French women tend to their eye makeup is to do the above steps but add a little eyeliner to the top only and even bring it out to a little wing. (Of course this is my favorite look because it’s the most my style and has a very retro and vintage look to it.

For Brows, instead of changing the shape of their brows like some American girls do, French girls keep their natural shape and usually just fill in with a pencil if they need to.

For Blush, they add so a hint of blush just to give a nice healthy flush to the apples of their cheeks. Some French girls also use highlighter on their cheekbones but’s a subtle highlighter and they don’t really high light any other part of their face, except for sometimes the Cupid’s bow.

And for Lipstick, French ladies stick to classic colors. It’s usually no lipstick or a gloss, a light pink or nude color, or the classic French signature red lip.

Another cool thing about the French and how they do their makeup is that when they are going out in the evening they usually don’t have to reapply their whole face. They’ll just out dark eyeliner or dark shadow on top of what they already have for a smoky eye look, make a little shadow or liner underneath, and a darker lip shade.

Here’s me with my French Style Makeup Look of Today:
