Almost 100 followers! Whooo! Quick question for y'all!

Hello, gorgeous ladies! With my new job (eeeek!) starting probably Tuesday or Wednesday, I have time to write ONE tutorial before then. I wanted to give you all, my fabulous followers, the option of what that tutorial would be on. You get to pick from three options.
 

MAKEUP BRUSHES- "What are these things? What is each one even used for?"
It's perfectly okay to not know what all of your brushes in your set (if you have one) are for. This is one option for a tutorial. I can pick out a popular brush set & go brush by brush to give you the 411 on what to use it for. It's understandable that it can get confusing. There are a LOT of brushes that come in a good set!


 
EYEBROW PENCIL TRICK- "I've heard you can use a pencil to get a perfect arch. Is this true? How do I do it?"  Yes, this is true. If you don't want to spend the money getting your eyebrows professionally done and would rather do them yourself, more power to you! I can show you how to use a pencil (yes, like a school pencil with an eraser) to get the perfect arch in your brow. That is another option for a tutorial.
 
 
 
 
SMOKEY EYED LOOK- "I have never been able to nail this look. I see it on so many women and it looks amazing. I want to learn how to do it!" It's totally fine that you haven't nailed the smokey eyed look. It takes practice, and a lot of patience, in my opinion. I can teach you, and even include a youtube video I found on how to start practicing this look. Every woman should know how to get the sexy smokey eyes! This is your third option.
 
So here is the deal: You get to pick one tutorial for this week. That's only because I am going to be so busy training and all those other sorts of shenanigans this week, too. I am SO very happy to have this job, but I also want to take care of my readers! So, with learning how to balance my time (I have been reading an E-course on loving my blog--balancing real life time & blogging time is a big part of the course, thank God) and my new job, I want to give you a tutorial that will help you out tremendously. Just because we can only do one this week, doesn't mean the other two are gone for good. That just means they will be added to a list of tutorials for another time.
 
"So what do you want me to do, Brani?", you might be asking yourselves. Look them over, decide which tutorial would best help you out right now, and leave a comment with which one you want to learn how to do/use this week. That's right; it's really simple. Just leave a comment with either: brushes, pencil arch trick, or smokey eyed look. I'll give you all time to leave a sufficient amount of answers and then get started writing the tutorial. Please understand that I feel so extremely blessed to have found this job, that until I know what my schedule is going to be like and how blogging will get done (and it will; I promise it will), this is how it's going to work. So, happy choosing! I'll get to that tutorial ASAP once your answers have been submitted.
 
PS. About my job--I will tell you in time. I still have to put notice in at my other one on Monday. I loved serving, but with the car accident and all of my injuries, I just couldn't do it anymore. This new job is the type of job that I can grow in, and make a career out of. Thanks for all of the congratulations. :)

  2. Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog today. I vote on the use of all the brushes, but ideally not listed here I'd love to learn how to start wearing makeup. I don't wear any...ever. So a slow introduction to beginning to wear makeup and how to keep it looking natural. :) Yes, I'm 24 and don't wear makeup. I have a professional job, so I think it is time I step it up a bit.

    1. Megan, I can always help a beginner learn how to apply the basics of makeup and keep it natural looking. I, personally, like to keep my makeup on the more natural side every day, anyway. It's very rare, unless I'm feeling bold or it's a special occasion, that my daily look is something extreme. :) You actually gave me a really great idea for a tutorial, so thank you in advance. And yes, at 24 with a professional job, it is the perfect time to start learning how to apply the basics (a little bit of blush, mascara, and lipgloss at the very least)! I'm so excited you decided to follow here! xo

    3. I also know of a great video if you are a YouTube person. It's not one that I made, but this girl does a great job answering questions about the basics of makeup. She's brilliant at explaining many things. Is there a reason you don't wear makeup, may I ask, or is it just that nobody ever taught you how?

    4. Well #1 I've always been told I don't need it. #2 Never really been taught. #3 Have no idea where to start now. I occasionally wear eyeliner and eye shadow.

  5. Good luck in your new job! :)

    I also totally can't pick which one I want more...I'm torn between the brush one, and the smokey eye tutorial! I think the brush one, and then a smokey eye tutorial next!?
