HOW TO GET PERFECT EYEBROWS

Beauty

How to get perfect eyebrows!

This video was created due to popular request…. LOL. I feel like people always say that when nobody actually requested anything. But, in this situation it seems people are very interested in how I do my eyebrows lol. And it just so happens that I have LOTS of wisdom to share on the subtle art that is eyebrows.

This video was 45 mins long, and I condensed it into 6 minutes of goodness for your viewing pleasure.

***A quick little rant before we get started here***

One thing that has been driving me NUTS, like totally bonkers, lately is how there’s this trend of big time makeup artists doing brows FIRST.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY. 😩

It. Is. So. WRONG.

I had a rather ragey bit in this video that took up about 2 minutes where I went deep into why it should be illegal to do your brows first, but it took up too much time so I had to cut it in editing lol.

But alas, I WILL BE HEARD!

Let me explain why it makes NO SENSE AT ALL to do your brows first when glamming.

  1. When putting on foundation, you will move them or get foundation on them and mess them up.
  2. When concealing, the same as above.
  3. When blending, the same as above.
  4. And after you’ ve messed them up by doing steps 1 – 3, you will have to re-do them in the end anyways.

WHICH IS WHY, my brows, will always and forever be done LAST! After I’m finished with the other 6 million steps it takes to get this girl looking beat.

Phew, already feeling better now that I have gotten this out on the internet. It was necessary. Can’t be having you thinking it’s okay to start glam with your brows. The thought of it causes me severe anxiety. 💀 (<– that’s me, ded from brow anxiety.)

I need a prosecco now to recover from this traumatic experience we’ve just had here.

LOL. I kid.

But I really do feel very strongly confused at why anyone would ever do brows first.

***RANT OVER*** (and far too liberal use of caps lock in this post, apologies)

SO yeah. Back to my video and the awesome contents of said video…

I shared the BEST tips and tricks on how to get natural, bombbbbdiggity lookin’ brows in this tutorial! Some VERY REAL pro tips in here that are easy to integrate into your makeup routine.

Oh one more thing… I only used 2 PRODUCTS. Yeah, it’s actually a pretty practical and useful tutorial if I do say so myself in my entirely biased opinion. 😇

This blog just got outta hand so quick lol! Ya girl is fired up rn with all this talk of starting glam with brows.

hahahah im crazy.

That’s enough outta me tonight. 🤡

Talk soon.

PERFECT WINGED LINER

Beauty

Scotch tape, works every time!

New makeup tutorial!!!

These are sO MUCH FUN TO FILM. I love glamming SOOOOooooOOOoooOOOO MUCH! And my new camera makes it so much easier to see wtf is going on on my face.

You know?

This tutorial was inspired by a look that Chloe Morello did of Bella Hadid. The badass winged liner was achieved VERY easily by using some scotch tape! Watch the full video to see how I did it!

Also, make sure you give this video a THUMBS UP!

Once you’ve gone and learned how to get a gangster winged eye liner above and left me a cutie little comment and “like”……

LET’S MOVE ON TO A LIFE UPDATE.

3. More. Days.

UNTIL I MOVE TO COSTA RICA!!!

Like wtf? Is this life?

Ya girl cannot wait. I am so impatient with these things. Not going to lie the last few weeks in Vancouver have felt like a lifetime. Time always seems to move extra extra slow when you are excited about something.

Do you feel like that too ever?

Anywho… I’ve got about 6 million chores to do before I leave. Really annoying pre-travel stuff haha. SO IMA GO DO THAT.

Hope you like the video!!

BIRTHDAY GLAM TUTORIAL

Beauty

Birthday glam tutorial! <3

MY BIRTHDAY IS IN 3 DAYS WTF!!!!

How did this happen? I’m freaking out.

Every birthday over the age of 25 just gets worse. I swear. I’m not even willing to type out how old I’m turning because teens will think I am ancient. Teens, do you read my blog? I feel like you don’t….. 15 year olds thing anyone over 20 is soooooooo old. *cue eyeroll* I know this because one time I told my 14 year old cousin that “I really liked instagram” and she told me “instagram is for old people.” I laughed it off like it was no big deal (because I am obviously a chill/cool/hip older cousin), but I really went home and cried.

The entire experience was V traumatic.

To console my rapidly aging self…

***PAUSE FOR DISCLAIMER*** to anyone reading this who is older than me and thinking “you little piece of sh*t you are so young”….. 1) You remember what it was like when you suddenly went from your early 20’s nearing 30. PRACTICE EMPATHY MY FRIENDS. 🙏🏻 2) I know 27 is actually SO YOUNG it’s cray cray. I am just being dramatic/jokey/this is all in good fun. 😝

*Back to the regularly scheduled programming*

To console my rapidly aging self, I made this video on how I’m gonna glam myself UP for my birthday this Sunday! And, more importantly, I made this video so everyone knows my birthday is coming and sends gifts. 😉

Anywho, this makeup tutorial is a bit longer than I normally do, but it is honestly SO HARD to fit a full face glam into under 10 mins, PLUS this time I did two different first impressions in the video as well. One of which was the Sephora birthday gift for this year. Which is V relevant cuz you need to know what to pick when your birthday comes!!

Lots of good stuff in this one.

Take a gander, and if you like the tutorial pretty pleaseeeeeeee go to Skinny Belle Youtube and throw a thumbs up on this bad boy. It helps a lot. And it makes me feel happeh inside. V V happeh. 😊

LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK.

PERFECT EYELASH TUTORIAL

Beauty

How to get PERFECT, BIG, SEXY, eyelashes!

Hey babes!

My latest beauty tutorial is here – how to get perfect eyelashes!!!👀 I get asked almost daily about my lashes, if they are fake, and if not, which mascara do I use?!

All V good questions.

Because when people see me WITHOUT mascara (referencing the horrifying image on the left) they never believe that my eyelashes are real. So, here we have it! The super-duper-officially-official eyelash tutorial. And proof that I don’t wear falsies every day. 😂 Because, ain’t nobody got time for THAT. 🙅🏼

I am obsessed with this video because there are SO MANY GOOD TIPPITY TIPS IN IT!! ✔ It’s great being able to share all the tricks I learned over my many years modeling and working with makeup artists.

And makeup is fun. I’m never not having fun whilst glamming. So there’s that too.

What do you guys think? Do you like this beauty tutorial? Or, do you have another favourite? Comment and let me know!

Ifffffff you like this tutorial, pleaseeeee click here and give it a thumbs up 👍🏼 on YouTube! I’m still a noobie in the Youtube world, and the “thumbs up” really helps my content get seen. 🙏🏼 Pls and thankssssyou! ❤

Also: thanks for your patience with the quality of my videos. It’s still only been about 3 months since I first shared a video, and I didn’t even notice the EXTREME difference in quality between my first posted video and now. I actually had someone comment on YouTube the other day saying how I used to look really shy and awkward and now I am being myself and the quality of my editing/filming has improved drastically. After she commented I went back and watched my earlier videos… OH MY GOD. I am already so embaressed and want to delete hahaha. Fuck. Oh well. They will be there for us all to laugh at I guess. Anyways, kind of a random tangent I am on here but I just wanted to thank you for your patience — I am so used to being photographed and writing all the time, but the video thing is new for me. The learning curve has beena wee bit steep, but I promise you things will be better and better with every edit. If there is something you ever want to see, please TELL ME! Slide on into my dms, comment here, whatever. I value your input a LOT. ❤

LOVE YOU ALL. GOOD LUCK IN THE OLYMPICS!  WHICHEVER TEAM YOU ARE CHEERING FOR! The whole world has come together for this event. Pretty epic considering the climate of things right now. (Again, the olympics really has taken over my life lolz.)

OK BI.

VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP

Beauty

This is low-key my favourite glam tutorial yet!

OBSESSED WITH THIS VALENTINE’S DAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL!!!!

But first, I need to tell you something. Or, bitch. Whatever.

There is good news, and bad news.

GOOD NEWS

This Valentine’s Day makeup tutorial is so damn good. It is the perfect flirty, natural, yet sexy look for the big day. We even use some Kylie Cosmetics products, which always make for a big sexy pout. 💋 And the eyes are a bit more spicy than normal with pink tones and a soft winged liner.

This glam is everything. And you neeeeed to try it! 💞

BAD NEWS

(This is the part where I bitch. Sorry but I need to tell you what is going on!!)

I posted this last night on YouTube, and it was LIT. So many views, comments, and likes! As a new YouTuber, that is a V big deal. And I was stoked!

This morning I woke up to a bunch of messages telling me that the video randomly cuts off 3/4 of the way through the tutorial. 😭 There was no way to fix this, so I had to delete my video and repost it (the version you see above.)

This majorly sucksssssss.

Re-posting a video means losing all momentum from the awesome possum engagement I had on the original version. NO FUN AT ALL. 🙅🏼 Apparently this issue of videos getting cut off was happening to a bunch of other people this week as well. 😔

Anyways, I’m in the process of healing my mind, body, and soul from this deep trauma. LOL totally kidding, but it did suck.

Needless to say, the whole situation was frustrating. But now I’ve gotten it all out, and we can move right along.

BACK TO THE GOOD NEWS

The video is now live IN FULL so you can see how I got my Valentine’s Day glam! This is the exact look I’ll be doing for my Valentine’s Day date this year. So if you want to get the look, or get some inspo, check check checkkkkk it out

If you guys like this video, tell me by throwing it a big thumbs up! 👍🏻 It’s really helpful to know which videos you vibe most 😊

Hope you enjoy the tutorial. I am off to drive about 9 hours to get home from Lake Tahoe! It’s been a super fun week and I am soooo sad to leave. Girl had the best time skiing all day every day.

We shall talk back in LA!

Love you guys. ❤

BOTOX, LIP INJECTIONS, MICRONEEDLING, & MORE: DR. MCGILLIVRAY INTERVIEW

Beauty

Look at me all serious and interviewing!!!

Oh yes oh yes oh yessssss!

Skin care is my everything. And in this episode of Skinny Belle – The Podcast I interview the famous Dr. McGillivray, founder of Project Skin MD, on all things skin care.

This girl wants to be looking as-is until she is 90. (Not even joking in the slightest.) 😂

Things got really real with Dr. McGillivray and I asked all about botox, lip injections, microneedling, chemical peels, and basically everything under the sun. We also talked about Kylie Jenner and Bella Hadid and discussed what procedures they have/haven’t done.

This is definitely my favourite podcast episode yet. Dr. McGillivray is so informative, and I honestly learned so much interviewing him.

It was awesome.

My whole goal when doing this interview was to find out the TRUTH on different aesthetic medicine procedures (I feel like there is a lot of rumours and false truths out there.) I really dug deep to also find out which products/ingredients you guys need to be using NOW to keep your skin looking fresh.

If you are like me and are way too OCD obsessed with skin care (it’s a thing), you will definitely want to listen to this episode.

Oh and also, if you haven’t rated Skinny Belle – The Podcast 5 stars on iTunes yet… would SUPER DUPER appreciate it if you did! ♥️

NATURAL GLAM TUTORIAL

Beauty

FINALLY!!! I filmed my favourite natural beauty glam 😊

Yes yes yes!!! I am sewwww happpehhhhh this is here. Took me a minute but girl finally filmed my classic Natural Beauty Glam tutorial.

I’ve worked with a number of makeup artists over my 9 year modeling career (literally, hundreds of them) and learned a thing or two in the process. So, it’s about time I share some of my best tips and tricks for glamming! 😁

Personally, I do love to try and use makeup to enhance my natural features, instead of cover them up and change how I look. That is why I am such a fan of this kind of glam! 💋 There’s a bunch of super useful tippity tips in this tutorial, so check it out and let me know what you think!

If you’re looking for the product list of everything I used in this video, I’ve linked it all on Skinny Belle Youtube below the tutorial.

This is one of my classic “Robyn” glams, that I do about 70% of the time. 😄 Hope you like the video! If you do, make sure you throw a thumbs up on that bad boy. 👍🏻

Hope you’re having a fab week! 💞
