MAC Sugarsweet Tutorial on Women of Color Part I

Hi Bellas,

I decided to mix things up for this tutorial. I usually do a look on myself and call it today. This time around I used my bestie for a model. I get a lot of requests from women of color to recommend shades for them since they don't think they can rock the bright colors that I do. Wrong! It just takes the right application and the right bases to use the same products. My bestie is an NW45 and she loves wearing bright colors.

This video also gives me the opportunity to demonstrate how I do makeup on others. I was pretty laid back in this video but I do explain my technique and give tips on applying makeup on others.

FYI, I had already airbrushed her foundation beforehand to save time. She also has on MAC lip erase in Dim which explains why her lips look so light, lol.

Check out part 1! I show you everything from eyeshadow to applying lashes.


Part 2 will be up on Wednesday where I show the complete look including pictures! Ciao Bellas!
