How to Highlight & My Fav Highlighting Products

Ok so how did this post slip through the cracks??
I totally thought I did this to accompany my Highlighting video when I posted it. Apparently not.
Anyhow, here it is.
Highlighting is one of those "fine line" matters. In that there is a very fine line between "candle-lit and glowy" and "disco ball frost explosion". Sounds dramatic, but it's true my friends. You also have to be careful considering that heavily frosted products (like so many highlighting products are) will do nothing but emphasize pores and fine lines when applied over them. So it's like a double "fine line" matter. ha. ha.
...Anywayyy, check out the video below for lots of my tips on how to avoid these highlighting pitfalls and to get glowy, angelic skin and to emphasize your best features by highlighting.
But first, here are my list of favorite highlighting products mentioned in the video.

Sofia Vergara's Golden Globe Simple Smoky Makeup Tutorial

Did any of you watch the Golden Globes this year? I have to admit, like most of you, I watch primarily for the fashion and makeup.
One look that really wow-ed me this year was Sofia Vergara. She wore the most beautiful navy dress paired with a brown smoky eye and fuchsia lips.
The makeup is classic, versatile, and so easy, you'll flip. I literally used one brown for the look, paired with a highlight shade. Super simple, yet super sexy and flattering. Love it.

Products used:
Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadow in Bad to the Bronze
MAC Pro Longwear eye shadow in Make Your Mark
MAC Pro Longwear eye shadow in Carefree
MAC Fluidline in Dipdown
Armani Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara
Benefit Hervana
Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting

MAC Lipglass in Nymphette

How I Use Hot Curlers

Ok, so is it "hot curlers" or "hot rollers"? I'm guilty of interchanging both terms... but I'm just curious as to which is most widely used.
I keep wanting to say "rollers" in all the titles for the current video/post/tweets on the subject.
...and something always tells me to go with "curlers".

Ok, enough with the words, Tiffany.
I really love using hot rollers/curlers. I mastered the use of them early in my high school years and never looked back. So much so that the thought of using of a curling iron was crazy to me. (I didn't learn to use one of those babies until just a few years ago.) Anyway, I find that knowing how to use both is a good thing because they actually yield much different results.
I love using a curling iron when I have some extra time on my hands to get ready and when I want more defined, deliberate, "vertical" looking curls.
When I only have about five to ten minutes on my hands to actually mess with my hair, I go with hot curlers. I can get these babies in my hair in five minutes, then do my makeup and finish getting ready while they "set" in my hair. I love them. The result? Beautiful, soft curls that last all day.
To see exactly how I use mine and to get some tips on how to get the best results from them, check out my tutorial below.
