Week in Instagram and Giveaway Update!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since my last post because I've been super busy flying all around the US this last week. If you follow me on Twitter @frmheadtotoe, you may already know that I've been working on a webseries called Away We Happened with Wong Fu Productions and AT&T alongside my costar, Victor Kim (whom you may recognize from Quest Crew). I am so, so excited for it to go up later this month so I can share our hard work with all of you. :)

I can't go too into detail quite yet, but here's a little peek of my last couple of weeks through Instagram:

  • I absorbed Spring neons and went to the park with Cherry.
  • Recorded my next tutorial. Do you have a guess of what it may be?
  • Sang karaoke with Victor. We did a duet to "A Whole New World" from Aladdin because that's how all the cool kids roll.
  • Loved taking in the NYC skyline!!
  • Filmed with the Wong Fu guys. Here Victor is acting, Ted has the boom mic, Wes is behind the cam, and Phil is directing.
  • Caught the NASA space shuttle landing at JFK airport. You can see it piggy-back on top of the plane. Then we went onward to LA for more filming.
  • This guy was at the airport waiting to propose to his girlfriend who apparently loves elephants! Partly creepy but mostly really freaking cute!
  • Delicious macaroons to brighten the end of my short LA visit.

I'm heading back home from California tomorrow, but I just wanted to first of all thank everyone for entering my giveaway. I am really thrilled and overwhelmed by the positive response and wealth of feedback I've received from all of your comments and I hope it can help me improve my channel to make it even better for you!

Unfortunately it's come to my attention that there's been a spammer on Youtube who has been trying to mislead those who have entered my giveaway by posing as me through a fake account "frmheadtootoe". Please know that I do NOT have any second accounts and I would never have a secret giveaway for any reason without letting you know publicly. Please do not give them your information!!! I didn't even get a chance to choose the winner yet, although I promise I will soon after I get back home. I will announce the winner on my blog so until you hear, please beware of this fake account.

Otherwise, I hope you all are having a fantastic week! I'll be hard at work on my next tutorial which will be up very soon. Be safe and I hope you are all getting the good rest that I haven't been able to get yet. ;)

250K Youtube Subscribers Giveaway!

Hey guys, today I just wanted to say THANK YOU a million times over for all of the love and support I've received throughout my blogging/youtubing adventure. I recently hit 250,000 subscribers on Youtube which feels like such a huge milestone! I know that compared to others, the number is nothing but I am the type who never assumes that people actually watch any of my videos so when they do and actually subscribe, it really means so much to me. Because of the positivity and strength you've given me, I wanted to give back with a giveaway of a few of my favorite things. :)

Sephora V.I.B. 15% Off Haul

Hey everyone! So a couple of weeks ago I was browsing the Sephora sale section, as ya do, and came across some lovely train cases that were on sale. I have been keeping my eyes open for a nice basic train case for a while so I decided to make an small order.

Little did I know that evil Sephora had planned a 15% off VIB coupon to be sent out only a week later! Needless to say, I decided to do a double order and wanted to share with all of you what I decided to purchase. (It may include some paper, plastic, and even a laser gun. Bwahahaha...)

Video, a full list of products, and what's on my nails below!

Tangerine Tango Makeup Tutorial

As many of you are probably already aware, the Pantone color of the year is a lovely reddened-orange color called "Tangerine Tango". I have personally been obsessed with this color for about the last year and a half but I wanted to share my peachy-orange tutorial inspired by this shade with you. It is a very intense, saturated orange which may be off-putting for some, but I promise it is much easier to wear than it looks!

I subdued the eyes, created contoured peachy cheeks for that bronzed glow everyone loves for Spring, and some statement lips to add some drama. To see the whole video tutorial and breakdown of the look, read on!

@frmheadtotoe on Instagram

Happy Easter everyone! I hope that however you celebrate, you will keep happiness and blessings in your heart because this day is about the gifts that can't be bought with money or chocolate. :)

I'm spending today with my family but I just wanted to share a few recent pics from my Instagram. I know some of you are the nosy types (me as well, haha) so if you want a glimpse into my life you can follow me: @frmheadtotoe

This past week:

  • I got my hair trimmed and colored
  • Hung out with my favorite band, Family Force 5
  • Rocked out some sweet new accessories
  • Caught Cherry being insanely adorable
  • Saw Mars, Venus, and Jupiter (We downloaded the Night Sky app and you can see stars and planets just by pointing your phone at the sky! I thought they were planets, hubby thought it might be satellites. I won. :D) Stargazing puts awe in my heart knowing how big the world is and how small we are. SO pretty lately!

I'm thinking about doing weekly snapshot updates like this on my blog. Is that something you would like to see? Let me know in the comments. :)

Easy Loose Curls Tutorial

If you've ever watched a Victoria's Secret commercial and wished you had the soft, wavy curls of the models but didn't know how to achieve that without looking *ahem* inappropriate, I wanted to show you an easy way to get those sexy, natural curls in about 10 minutes.

Today's tutorial is a very, very basic lesson on how I get loose, everyday curls that I frequently wear in my videos. There are many ways to curl hair including with a flat iron but I find that using a good old curling iron is the quickest and easiest method for me. Click on, dear readers, for the video!

How to Apply Blush & Highlighter

One of my very favorite makeup items in all of existence is blush. Isn't it funny that we try so hard to cover up our rosy red cheeks when we become embarrassed, but then try to mimic that flush with makeup? I think there's something quite charming and attractive about a beautifully applied blush that can't be replaced by anything else in a makeup routine. Even with no other makeup on, it brings a liveliness to the face that I really adore.

There are plenty of techniques used to give us that effervescent, lit-from-within glow that we all seek but I've found one which is easy to master while helping to slim and contour the face at the same time...
