Tutorial | Shimmering Summer (Everyday Make Up) + I NEED YOUR HELP!

We (I) interrupt this program of "face/base" posts to bring you my latest tutorial! It's the look I've been wearing a lot this past few weeks. It's very subtle make up, on the verge of a "no make up" look but it's got a bit more glitter. Now that it's getting warmer I'm enjoying wearing less make up on my face and using more natural colors, which is surprising because if you know me you know I'll take any opportunity to wear some fun and bright colors! Any darker colors used are used to just accentuate/define my eyes. I also added a bit of sparkle using a glittery base and then a super sparkle packed eyeshadow. I hope you guys enjoy it!

ALSO, if you're following me on Twitter or my Facebook page you'll know that I was chosen to be a participant on "The Best in Beauty" competition, which is a beauty competition being held on YouTube. I'm competing against 11 other YouTubers and one is actually a fellow blogger! So this video is not only a tutorial but an entry for the first round of the competition! To make it through each round I'm going to need some votes and could really use your help! After you've watched my video head on over to this link right here --> ( http://youtu.be/caLGyb66puw ) and basically all you have to do to vote is leave a comment on that video with my username (TheModMermaid) If you vote, you MUST comment on the video I linked you to otherwise it won't count ): You can only vote once but in that one vote you vote for up to three girls, so make sure to check out some other videos if you'd like! I'd really appreaciate you guys taking the time to vote as I'd love to get as far as I can :) Thank you to everyone who has already voted and thank you to everyone who's planning to! It really means a lot to me! :)
