[VIDEO] April Empties - Products I've Used Up - Makeup, Skincare + Nailcare

Hello! Just wanted to share my April Empties with you all : )

A lot of people were saying that it's not showing up in their YouTube subscription box so I figured I'd post it here.

I missed March's video and was going to film it but ultimately decided to skip it. When I looked at everything it was just a lot of the same shampoo and conditioner as you've seen in months past. Kind of boring. April's products were much more interesting and May's are going to be even more so! Finally cycling through some of my makeup! (I am trying not to buy as much these days especially since, like in this video, I haven't been wearing as much. No eye shadow on top in this video - just liner, lashes and some brown shadow on my lower lash line (always a must for me!) and I've been loving it. (I wanted to see if it was acceptable for on camera though since normally for filming more eye makeup looks better on me but I think it looks okay :)  

And of course I have stopped wearing liquid foundation - just spot concealing and finishing off with powder and it feels amazing! I think after under eye brightening with concealer and adding blush/bronzer I can hardly tell the difference from afar. (every time I say afar I think of Jafar from Aladdin - anyone else? Just me? Okay. lol)

Anywayyyyyy I will stop blabbing now and let you get on with the video.

  1. Jafar hahaha that's so random it cracked me up! I love the no liquid foundation look on you - I can't even tell the difference. I'm working up the courage to try it myself, but I'm afraid it'll look good at first and then I'll randomly see myself in a mirror at the mall and be like omg.

  2. I really want to try makeup forever duo mat!

    Check out my OPI nail polish giveaway!

  3. Lol Jafar, no you're not the only one that thinks that. Right after I read Jafar, I thought to myself, "a whole new wooooooooooooorlllld!!!" Anyway, I love the eyelook as well. It's my pretty much my makeup for every occasion/every day. Just liner, mascara, brows. If I am not too lazy I'll pat a touch of bb cream all over and call it good. ^__^;;
