How I Used To Do My Makeup vs. Now


– [James] Hi sisters
James Charles here and welcome back to my YouTube channel. Jumping right into today’s
brand new video, I am very very excited but also
nervous for this video. This is something that I wanted to film for a very very long time now and that is how I used to do my makeup versus how I do it now. This trend has already
been going around for a pretty long time now so this is definitely not an original idea. A few years ago people were doing the how I do my makeup
in high school versus now challenge which was so much
fun to look back at everybody’s transformations and even I did a video a few months ago where he reacted to and recreated my first ever makeup tutorial and even though I’ve only been in the beauty community doing makeup for about three years now I will definitely say that my makeup has changed so, so, so much hopefully for the better, I mean I literally used
to have Sharpie eyebrows that took up half my freaking forehead and a man bun that was a literal rat’s nest on the top of my head. In the past three years I
will confidently say that I’ve definitely upped
my style, makeup tips, techniques and products that I used so for today that I thought
it’d be so much fun to split my face right in half and do a little beauty battle
with myself basically, when you literally don’t have anybody left to collab with and do one half of my face
how I used to do my makeup with all the old
techniques and products and the other half of my
face how I do it today, see the comparison, see
how everything has changed and hopefully you guys will
pick up some tips and techniques of what not to do along the way. So without further ado
let’s take a trip down memory lane and jump right in. (upbeat music) I just scrolled down my
Instagram for several minutes. Literally I have PTSD from
looking at some of these disgusting photos but I
came across this look that was posted on May 14, 2016
and it is captioned tangerine. I feel like for the old half
my face, this is a really good look to do today that encompasses
kind of all the techniques that I used to use and now
don’t use for obvious reasons. That has gotta be the harshest contour I’ve ever seen in my entire life. My eyebrows taking up half my forehead. I will say and pat myself on
the back a little bit too, through scrolling down through
all these repulsive looks, the one thing that I was never
horrible at was eyeshadow. Everything else has been majorly improved but I was always a pretty decent at eyeshadow and it was
always been my favorite part of the makeup routine so definitely just a super simple glam eyeshadow look. My winged eyeliner is going straight out. I don’t even think I have a lash on. My nose is not even close to
contour and my lips are lined normally and this was before
I had anything done to them so you get the picture. I think this is the perfect look to recreate today and even
though it is pretty simple, I think there’s going to be
some very dramatic changes from one side to the other
and hopefully I’ll be able to show you guys a lot of really helpful tips and techniques
so let’s jump right in. So the first step of a makeup routine is of course always skin prep. Now on the old side,
I’m just gonna go right into the Benefit Porefessional
primer, no moisturizer, nothing beforehand. I literally used to be
obsessed with this stuff. I would use the most of it. This primer for me is
one of the main reasons that started my conspiracy
theory that primers do absolutely nothing because this
primer actually hurt my skin more than it actually helped
which I’ll get into when it comes to the nose in a little bit. Now on the newer side of my face I’m going to first grab the Tatcha Water Cream. This is my all-time favorite moisturizer and a good moisturizer
is super important for me before I put on any makeup
to make sure my skin stays hydrated and healthy
all throughout the day and is able to breathe underneath
eight ounces of product. Obviously as you can see
I’m having a very intense breakout on this side
of my face right now. I’m not exactly sure why. I’ve been traveling a lot
recently and I’ve been of course taking extra precaution to make sure my skin stays healthy but we’re not gonna be taking this into consideration when it comes to
the final judgment later on. Thanks. Although I don’t always prime now, when I do skincare is of
course my number one priority and that means I usually go
the Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer which I feel like is also
very very fitting today because just like the Porefessional, this one is obviously meant
to it fill in everything and make it very, very even so hopefully we’re going to flatten out these pimples that we have going on. So normally next I would
jump right into foundation, but on the old makeup side we actually have a few more steps to do before that so I’m gonna let the primer sit on the new side and right now we’re going to go in and a color correct using the LA Girl Pro concealer
in the shade Literal Orange. So I obviously am a man and
I do have a 5 o’clock shadow that is really, really inconvenient. I am getting laser hair
removal all over my face to get rid of it because I absolutely hate it but now I just use a full coverage foundation and a lot of concealer to cover it up to kind of eliminate using 87 different products on my face but back then it was not the case, so I’m gonna put this basically
everywhere that hair grows. I was apparently convinced that
I was doing drag every time I put my makeup on. I’m just gonna blend that
in using my Beauty Blender. This next step I cannot
believe I ever actually did, but if you scroll back to one of my first YouTube videos, it isn’t
most definitely there. When I first started to makeup
I had a major, major issue where every time I would do my foundation they would always
completely slip off my nose and leave little holes and
cracks and look disgusting whenever I tried to nose contour. I was so convinced it
was the oils in my nose that I was literally just sweating all day long but I later found out once I was educated that it was actually
the Porefessional primer not really working together
with a foundation that I always used and that is why. That is also why I stopped
using it this combination but at one point I did
finally find a trick to fix that and I taught you guys in my videos if anybody remembers from literally day one and that was using a Mac Paint Pot and literally putting a huge layer of that on my nose before I actually put any foundation on and the logic was that if the
foundation slipped off when I tried to contour, there would be another extremely
thick layer underneath. Absolutely ridiculous. I really could not tell
you why try new primer or try new foundation
never crossed my mind like a normal human being but this trick did do the
trick for a pretty long time. I’m gonna keep my Paint Pot out because we’re gonna be using it
later on on the new side when it comes to eyeshadow but it is now time to
move in to foundation. For foundation on the old side I’m gonna grab the Make
Up For Ever Ultra HD stick in the shade Y325. Now if you’ve been along since day one you would know that this was literally my ride-or-die Holy Grail. I still to this day I really
like this foundation and the formula to it a lot if you guys saw my finding my perfect
foundation shade video from a few weeks ago
this was literally one of my top contenders and
so many of the comments said you guys really, really
liked this color on me but when I moved to LA it
was just a little bit too dry for my skin and I’ve obviously
moved on to Born This Way, which is what I’m gonna put
on the other side of my face. I’m gonna start by blending this in using my Morphe M439 brush. Use code James for 10% off. That has never changed. I can already tell that this color is way, way, way too yellow for me. I would always just blend
the foundation right over the color corrector
as well and then always be really upset and confused when I would get hate comments telling
me that I looked orange. Should’ve listened. Now on the newer side of my face, I’m gonna be using the Too
Faced Born This Way foundation and for today’s look
I’m gonna mix together the shade of pearl and natural beige. The Born This Way
foundation is a little bit more medium coverage but can be buildable and I like this formula a lot better because it’s more hydrating and keeps my skin looking healthy throughout the day as opposed to cakey and I’m just blending this and using the brand new Jeffrey Star X Morphe contour and highlight sponge. (beep) Of course my camera stopped
recording for a few seconds. Sorry you guys I am back. Would it really be a James Charles video without a technical difficulty? No. Next I was obviously going to be concealer getting right back into things. I went in on the old side
with the LA Girl Pro concealer in the shade of porcelain,
literally the lightest shade that they have. I actually have nothing bad
to say about this concealer. The formula is really, really
bomb and it’s only $6 as well. I just wanted to move on and
try out different formulas. So on the new side, I use the Too Faced Born This Way concealer
in the shade vanilla. I’m just gonna blend this
in using a Beauty Blender. I want to move on to the
next side pretty quickly because no matter on what
foundation and concealer and primer I’m using on my
face if I don’t work fast I get very, very creasy
and crusty pretty quickly. So I’m gonna grab the Coty
Airspun powder on the old side. Obviously you guys know
this powder has been with me since day one. I love this one. This treated me very, very
well when I was living back in New York but this
is also the powder that created Flashback Mary and definitely made me
look very very cakey because I was using way too much of it but that’s the whole point of learning and improving as an artist. So I’m just gonna grab a
powder puff and dip right in, pack this into place. I can’t believe that I
used to literally do this. On the other side of my face, I’m gonna grab the Laura Mercier
translucent setting powder and I’m going to use my beauty sponge to melt this into the skin. Just for you know slightly lighter coverage look, I really really like using my same damp beauty sponge to push in
the powder to the skin. I’m not really sure
when I made this change but I am so glad that I did because I feel like this just does
so much better of a job to still set everything in
place so it doesn’t slip around during the day but it just looks so much more natural when you’re up close you don’t get that same kind of gross cakey and dry texture that you can sometimes get using a powder puff. I just feel like it really
holds up a whole lot better. Then I’m gonna grab a tiny
little bit of extra powder on a fluffy brush and
just go over everything to make sure everything is
nice and set in place and that I didn’t miss any areas. Now that both halves of
my face are set in place, the next step of my routine
is of course going to be to contour and chisel everything out, add some dimension, but
before I do that on the new side I want to go ahead and give myself a quick spritz of the Morphe Prep and Set setting spray just to kind
of melt everything together and this is not something
that I used to do before so I’m going to keep my palette
up here to separate it. (wind chimes) I don’t know if you can
fully see it on camera but looking in the mirror
this side of my skin is definitely just looking a
little bit more radiant, you can kind of see the
skin popping through, which I really, really
like whereas this side is still really beautiful, it’s super just full coverage and very, very matte so really just depends on the
type of look you’re going for. Now for contouring the one
palette that I used to use every single day was the Kat Von
D shade and light palette and not gonna lie, it had a
really, really bomb formula and I loved it for a long
time but unfortunately I no longer have it in my collection and I refuse to go buy it and support her so I’m just gonna use the
Anastasia contour kit and just go a little bit
more heavy-handed than usual. Gonna grab my Morphe M405
brush and dip right there into the middle shade and
just go right in there. I used to be obsessed with
going in at the absolute most with contour and I’m
really not even sure why. My cheekbones and jawline are already pretty defined to begin with. I really just wanted that like chiseled jaw line moment which really
didn’t even look that good. It honestly just looked ridiculous but we’re just gonna recreate it today for the sake of the video. I’m gonna use even more to
contour out my forehead. I mean this honestly has
not really changed that much because I’m definitely still
insecure about the sides of it but I am a lot better
at making it look softer and blended while still
bringing it down a little bit. Now you’re probably thinking
all right James that looks crazy, let’s move on to
the other side and trust me I’m thinking the same thing
but 2016 James was not because one thing that I
loved to do was after my contour was already laid down I would take a smaller fluffy brush and dip into an even darker contour shade
and just get you know a little bit on there
and just go right into the absolute hollow of my cheek bone and just put down a little bit more. Okay now that was maybe a little bit much. It never really looked that bad. Now going into that same exact M405 brush. Well not the same exact one but same type, you get the point and
dipping into the same color, I’m gonna go in and contour
the other side but just go a little bit lighter. Holding this brush right
between my side burn and ear and just lightly blending this downwards in circular motions,
keeping it very, very light and soft pulling just a little bit onto at the top of my forehead and still underneath the jawline as well and then just gonna grab an M527 brush and dip into this shade next door which is a little bit more
bronzy, caramel type of color and I’m gonna use this to
go lightly over top of that contour color just to
kind of blend together the natural skin tone and the contour without making it look too harsh. I’m gonna quickly apply a little bit of the MAC blush in the shade Peaches on my Morphe E4 brush. You guys know this blush
is my all-time favorite but I’m only gonna put
this on the new side because I literally hated blush when I first started doing
makeup and never wore it. I really did not know what I was missing because this looks so pretty
and youthful but oh well, you live and you learn I guess. And now we get to move
on to one of the most important parts of my makeup routine which is my nose contour. Now if you’ve been
following me since day one, I’m sorry first and foremost because my nose used to look so bad
in all my Instagram photos because I did not know how to
contour and even when I was learning how to contour it was still a really really rough process. At first I could not figure out how to do the illusion,
so it just looked bad. Then I’d learned how to do it. Then I learned how to
Photoshop and FaceTune so it looked so fake to the
point where I couldn’t even breathe and now several
years later I am finally at a place where I’m confident with my nose and how it photographs in photos. I stopped erasing the
entire thing in editing apps but I definitely still
do contour quite a bit so I’m gonna grab my contouring
brush and dip into the same exact contouring palette
firstly on the old side, I’m just gonna grab
that same contour color and a lot of it too and I’m just gonna go right in on the actual edge of my nose. Oh my god this is triggering. I’m blending that shape right upwards. Oh wow, this hurts. This hurts a lot. Now if you really like the
way that your nose looks in makeup naturally of course this step doesn’t really matter but for me personally I
prefer my nose to look a lot more narrow so I’m gonna grab the same exact contour color once again but instead of putting it on the absolute edge of my nose and going around the bulb which just makes it look
really, really wide, I’m gonna kind of focus this
color on the top of the nose bridge and pretend that
the bulb tip isn’t there, just go right over it, kind
of straightening it out, which gives the illusion of a more pinched and straight nose. Just gonna do it another
quick spritz of setting spray before I move on to baking
which is the next step. – [Man] You’re kidding. – [Woman] That’s kind of-
– [James] Wow. (laughs) – [James] Are you kidding me? Let’s try that again, a little
bit of urban decay this time. Then just going in with some
more Coty Airspun powder and a powder puff to bake. I used to put the setting
powder here and just go straight down and then I’m bringing it all the way up to the back of my head, I have no idea why and
then right on the center of the forehead and then just using the Laura Mercier on the other side, I’m gonna bring this powder all the way up to the side of my nose to snatch it and create that illusion and
then just keeping it focused right underneath my eyeball in
this little triangular area. I am very excited to tell you guys that for the brow portion of today’s video I am actually partnering with
Anastasia Beverly Hills, that’s right, to show you guys
their brand new dip brow gel and how I like to use it
and also how I wouldn’t necessarily recommend using it. If you’ve been around
since day one you probably remember the James Charles
block brick Sharpie eyebrows. Now at the time I loved them, a few people on Instagram loved them but for the most part they were disgusting and everybody made fun
of them all the time including the Queen herself, Anastasia Beverly Hills who tried to get me to tweeze them all off and I literally looked at her face and
said absolutely not. Can you say ego? They had no arch to them whatsoever. In fact, they almost looked like I was frowning half the time. They literally took up half
of my forehead in thickness and they also had no dimension either. They were all just one
color up straight like dark brown almost black all the way through. Three years later after
a whole lot of bullying, hate comments, tweezing and practice, I am finally at a place
where I really really love my brows so let’s
compare the old to the new. Starting off I’m gonna
grab my Anastasia dip brow in the shade dark brown and my Anastasia number 7B brush and I’m just
going to dip in to the palette right here and I’m going
to grab quite a lot. I usually like to take the spoolie first and go upwards just to kind
of get the shape of the brow but I’m actually going to use the spoolie and brush them this way to
actually kind of have a flatten them out since I’ve definitely tweezed an arch into eyebrows
over the past few years and I’m just gonna go right in starting at the front of my brow which I never recommend doing any more and just drawing a line. This really used to
happen every single day and then at the very last
second straight down. (screams) Oh no. I’m grabbing a little bit more on the same little angled brush. I’m just going to sketch
in the tail of my eyebrow, going out the top, straight down and then
using whatever is left which is apparently a lot. Just gonna brush that right in. Can’t believe I’m doing this right now. Ah oh my god. That used to be on my face every day and I never thought there was
anything wrong with it. As if that was enough I’m next under grab the brand new Anastasia dip brow gel and I’m gonna layer
that right over the top. Now listen I’m actually really
excited to tell you guys about this product today because
it’s really, really dope. This is a super, super
pigmented, full coverage, waterproof new brow gel
but it can also be used like dip brow to actually sketch in hairs and actually add hairs in place. I’ve personally been
loving using this on myself before I even draw anything in and also on my friends that
don’t have as many brows hairs because it does such a good job of kind of sketching it in and still making it look like a natural look but like I said this is very, very pigmented so if you were going for this block eyebrow
which I would not recommend, you could really just go right in and push that product right in there for the original James
Charles Sharpie eyebrow look. Gonna grab a little bit more
of the LA girl Pro concealer and I’m just gonna
squeeze that onto at the back of my hand and then just grabbing
a Morphe M410 brush. Just gonna clean that up a little bit. Now moving on to the now side of my face, thank God, I’m gonna
grab the Anastasia brow in the shade medium
brown to start this off. Using the spoolie, I’m just
going to a brush all the hairs upwards and then going right
in, I’m going to lightly start in the middle of my brow drawing just tiny little hairlike
strokes at the bottom just to create a little bit of dimension. Then just following the
natural shape of my actual brow bone and going above that going to bring that line upwards creating an arch which is flattering for human faces and then when I get to the tail, I’m just going to pull
that line straight out as opposed to straight down. Going back in with the
spoolie each time as well to make sure that nothing
ever gets too intense or dark. Then I’m just going to fill in the tail. I’m gonna clean this brow up in a second but I’m pretty happy
with the shape so far. I’m next going to go
back into the brand new once again Anastasia dip brow gel but this time I’m gonna
use the color soft brown which is lighter than
my natural brow colors. Like I said this product
is very full coverage, so for someone like me
who likes a defined brow but doesn’t want to look like this, I like to use a lighter shade and go in super, super lightly and use this brow gel to still lock everything in place while adding a little bit of extra color but not a whole lot. What’s super cool about
the dip brow gel as well is that it does of course
set down and lock your hairs in place but the drying time is a little bit slower so I’m actually going to take another clean brow brush. This is the number 12
and just go right in and use the excess dip brow
gel that is in the hairs, use this to lightly
blend the product forward into the front of the brow
and then using that same brush just making tiny little upwards flicks to mimic the appearance of real hairs in areas that are a
little bit more sparse. Now the new dip brow gel is smudge proof so it is definitely not going anywhere but I do want to go ahead and
clean it up just a little bit so I’m going to grab the
Born This Way concealer one more time and then just
a rounded concealer brush and I’m just gonna go right in and really make sure it is super clean. All right sisters and those
are both eyebrows all complete. Go ahead take your screenshots. I’ve handled the bullying
once, I can do it again. Let’s just be thankful
that there’s been quite an improvement over the last three years. Here of course we have the original James Charles sharpie brick eyebrows and on the side we have the new and improved sister snatch brow both created using the brand new
Anastasia dip brow gel. It’ll keep your brows
waterproof, smudge proof and looking absolutely
fantastic all day long. If you guys want to check this
out, it is launching online at AnastasiaBeverlyHills.com
and in stores on March 7th and it is only retailing for $18 and I totally would recommend. That took plenty long enough and I never want to experience that again so I’m gonna move right
on to the next step of my routine which is of course going to be the eyeshadow. Now for eyeshadow primer, once
again for the third time in this video I’m gonna go to
the LA Girl Pro concealer in the shade of porcelain and
I’m just gonna go right in and paint this on the lid. This is what I used to do in
every single one of my makeup looks and then I’m just
going to blend this in and I’m gonna set that base
in place using some more Coty Airspun powder on
a dense packing brush and then for the other side I’m gonna grab my Mac Paint Pot once again
for a slightly different use this time and I’m just going
to lay down a generous layer of this right over top of my
eyelid and I am not going to set this one with any
translucent setting powder. Alright you guys so to create
this warm tone smoky eye that I had on in the original
photo, I’m of course gonna grab the James Charles
X Morphe iconic palette and I’m going to basically
use all of the shades in the middle row but this
video is already getting very, very long so I’m gonna do the eye portion off-camera. Like I said earlier the only
one thing that I didn’t have that much trouble with was eyeshadow. Of course I’ve improved my techniques and gotten better at blending but regardless I’ve done so many different videos on eyeshadow techniques so
I’m gonna cut quickly, still use the techniques
that I would have used then versus now and I’ll
come back and show you guys the finished look and
move on to the next step. All right sisters we’re back and I just completed the eye shadow on
both eyes off-camera quickly. As you can see the looks are
a little bit different because I wanted to recreate the
look exactly on this eye. It is just a little warm tone half cut crease moment and it looked like it was a matte shade on the lid and on this side, I did kind of like a modernized version if
I was to do a warm tone half-cut crease, this is
kind of what I think of, just kind of orange and brownie tones pulled out into a nice little wing and then a metallic
glitter right on the lid, kind of messily placed just
so it reflects in the light and looks so incredibly stunning but regardless I think both
eyes with different styles and techniques still look
really, really beautiful. That being said, the next step
of both of these eye looks is a winged liner. Although drawing a winged liner has never really changed for me, I
definitely did learn a lot about where I like to place my wing. Probably the worst part
of having a thick eyebrows aside from the hate
comments was the lack of eye shadow space that it actually gave me to work with and at the time I obviously didn’t know this but when your eyebrows taking up half of your eye region and then are just straight downwards, it really cuts off a lot of this outside area that I would now like to use for blending really big eye shadow looks. So when it came to drawing winged eyeliner when I first started, I really did not have
a lot of room to do it, so the one mistake that
I made all the time was drawing my wings
straight out just like that. Now don’t get me wrong drawing your wing straight out can be a really,
really helpful technique. In fact, for my sisters
that have hooded eyes, it is the absolute best way
to draw on a wing eyeliner and make sure that it is actually seen but for me as someone who
doesn’t have hooded eyes, drawing your wing straight
out could actually tend to drive the eye
downwards and especially with a brow that doesn’t have any arch it’s really not helping. Over on this side, I’m
going to pull the wing liner much more upwards in the same shape that I drew my eye shadow in. Just like the eye shadow
it is two completely different techniques and styles. I do honestly think that they
both look really, really good. This wing turned out better
than I honestly anticipated but I definitely still
prefer a wing that is much more pulled up. I just think it really makes the eye look so much more snatch and gives it life whereas this eye just
kind of looks a little bit more dead and basic in my opinion. Moving right along, I’m
gonna give both sides of my lashes a nice curl and then going to apply a heavy coat of the
Benefit Roller Lash mascara on the old side and then on the newer side I’m gonna add a light coat of
the Mac Extended Play mascara. Now as for lashes, I’m
zooming in on this photo and it looks like I don’t have any on. I’m not exactly sure
but I do naturally have pretty long and thick
eyelashes to begin with so I honestly might not
have been wearing them considering when I first
started doing makeup I literally could not put on lashes without gluing my eyes shut so
I guess I’m gonna be skipping that on this side of my face today but on this side I’m gonna
pop on the Lilly Lashes Miami So Extra. Use code James chains for
15% off your purchase. Alright guys those are
both eyes all complete looking beautiful, looking
fabulous on both sides, kind of. We’re going to go ahead
and dust off the bake because this powder has
been sitting on my face for literally like too
long now so let’s do that. It is now time to get our
glow on and what is so crazy is that we’re actually going to be using the same product on both sides of my face and that is the
Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood Illuminator. This is literally the
first highlighter that I ever bought and I have
stuck with it since day one. I love this color. It works so well on my skin tone. I still reach for it every
single time I do my makeup. Clearly as you can see
she’s seen better days, but she’s still working good as new. A lot of you guys know
when it comes to applying a highlighter or metallic
shadow using a tiny little bit of setting spray can
really make a color pop. Now when I used to apply highlighter a very very long time ago I would do what you’re not supposed to do which is basically drench the brush first, this is a Morphe M501,
and then dip into the pan. Well this does apply a very
very blinding and metallic glow, this can negatively affect
the formula in the pan because you’re basically adding a setting spray and water to the mixture where it was not intended to be. Also when you apply highlighter wet, it can look really really
beautiful but it can also look super streaky. This might not look that
bad on camera but in person this looks absolutely ridiculous. I know everybody loves
a good glow and trust me so do I but it just is not flattering. I also used to shoot my Instagram photos in a basement using only a ring light so I used to have a major problem actually getting my highlight to
reflect for some reason and I think that’s
probably why I went so ham on the setting spray
and highlighter before but regardless let’s go in
and highlight the other side and make it look nice and
pretty the way I do it now. This time around I’m gonna
grab my setting spray but instead of spraying my brush first I’m gonna actually give my face a good up little spritz. Once again to kind of melt all the powders together but also
to give us some wetness for the highlighter to stick to and I’m going to be using
the M504 brush this time which is a little bit
smaller than the M501 I’m gonna dip into the once
again So Hollywood illuminator getting quite a lot on there
and I’m just gonna apply this right on the top of the cheekbone keeping it most intense right here and then just using any excess
that’s left on the brush to blend it out. Much prettier in my opinion. And then I’m just gonna
grab a little bit of Face from my palette and add that right on top. Oh that just looks so pretty and the little of sparkle glitter. Grabbing a little bit more
Face on that same brush, I’m just gonna tap it off
so there’s not a whole lot of product on there and
I’m gonna pop a little bit right above my brow bone for
subtle little highlight here and then also a little bit on
the top of the chin as well. My nose highlight has never changed, just grabbing the M431 and a
little bit more face on the end of that brush, I’m just
gonna draw a straight line right down the center and
then a tiny little dot at the tip for my little
explanation point. Alright you guys, with our
highlighter being on and glowing to the Gods we can go ahead and move on to our last step which
is going to be the lips. So for both sides of the lips today, I’m going to using the
Ofra liquid lipstick in the shade Venice. This is another one of
those products that I’ve been using a since day one and literally have not find a better version of. I really, really like the
formula of the Ofra liquid lips. Now since this photo was
taken a few years ago, a full disclosure I have had my lips done. That was a personal choice by me. It has been well over a year
since I actually did them though so they are definitely
going way, way down but they are still nowhere near as small as they were in this picture so I’m just gonna go ahead
and apply this lipstick to the old make up side and
I’m not going to over line literally in the slightest
bit and then on the newer side I’m gonna go just slightly outside of my lip line for a more voluminous look and we are finally
finishing off of both sides with a little bit of sister setting spray to lock it all in place. (windchimes) (upbeat music) All right sisters, then I think that is my how I did my makeup then
versus now look all complete. Oh my gosh you guys it was so much fun taking a trip down memory
lane and reminiscing all the old products, tips
and techniques that I used to use a few years ago. It’s only been three short
years but I am so proud of the progress that I’ve
made from this to this. I do think both sides still
look beautiful in their own way but I can also happily
admit that three years ago, I came to the beauty industry
with a whole lot of passion but also a whole lot of ego as well. I truly thought I was the best, the best that I could not get any
better but boy was I wrong. Practice really really does make perfect and I am so grateful for every
single one you guys out there who saw potential stuck
by me and also left constructive criticism
and that goes for all my artist friends out there as well. Thank you guys for always
teaching me new tips and techniques that I get to
integrate into my routine and just overall thank
you for inspiring me and being really cool friends. I had so much fun doing
this video today and seeing how my style has changed and what’s even so crazy is that I’m
probably gonna look back at this video in five years and be like ew this looks absolutely disgusting but regardless I hope that all of you sisters will still be here in the long run and we can look back and laugh together and I cannot wait to see where the makeup industry takes us both.
