VIP Beauty Journal | Doable Makeup For Every Day Even If You’re Running Late

FRESHLY PAINTED DO NOT TOUCH

Last week, I talked about how makeup is becoming so complicated with the crazy complex contouring and elaborate tutorials. I am getting stressed and exhausted again just thinking about it *wink*

So, for this week’s Beauty Tues, I am going to use a the fabulous VIP Beauty Journal to showcase some doable makeup for everyday–even if you’re running late! No, you don’t need a lot of products or a lot of time to look picture-perfect beautiful–all you need are a few essential goodies + a little time!

Now, let’s take a look at what makeup basics we will need to achieve doable makeup.

Phew! That list wasn’t near as long as a lot of makeup tutorials on YouTube make it out to be *wink* Now, let’s take a look at this month’s VIP Beauty Journal entry which is all about neutral inspiration!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

This week on Beauty Tues, I am stately styling my eyes by embracing bright shadows and colored liners! 

Y’all know I am no makeup expert, so rather than embarrassing myself trying to apply cool and fun colors to my lids…I decided a VIP Inspiration Board was a better idea *wink* Now, while I go look up YouTube videos for applying colored eyeshadows, y’all take a look at this week’s VIP Beauty Board + helpful hints! :)

Beauty Tues: Beauty Journal Entry 5, July Must-Haves

IMG_9644

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to Beauty Tues.

To kick off the first full week of July beauty-fully *wink*, I decided to whip out my VIP Beauty Journal to compile a quick, doodled list of my beauty must-haves for the month. From perfectly colored lips to a flawless complexion, July is going to be my beauty month! Now, to schedule a mani/pedi *wink*

I had so much fun creating VIP Beauty Journal Entry 5 about July Must-Haves because July is one of my favorite months. The weather is warm, the skies are pretty, and it makes me crave bright lips, healthy skin, and colorful nails *wink* So, I picked out a few things that will FOR SURE be a part of my July beauty routine to share with y’all *wink*

Now, don’t forget to sketch-up YOUR July must-haves and share them with the VIP team on social media by using the hashtag #VIPBeautyJournal. You can also mention @AbbyHathorn on Twitter/IG and post directly to the VIP Facebook page here! :) Share your awesomeness with us so we can share it with the entire world *wink*

For my artsy readers out there who have been asking about what pens I use to doodle in my Beauty Journal...this is for you *wink* For this week's entry, I used The Faber Castell PITT artist pen (big brush) to doodle the header and I used PrismaColor Premier fine line markers for the rest :)
