Makeup Monday Mishap + Award

Okay so I didn't have time to do a tutorial over the weekend so I started recording one this morning. I was halfway through the tutorial when the phone rang, so I had to stop recording, answer the phone, then record another video to pick up where I left off.

Now, I am sooo NOT a video whiz so I don't know how to cut and edit anything at all. Therefore, I will not be posting my tutorial today. Sad face, I know. But fear not, I'm providing you with a tutorial today, just not MY tutorial.

This tutorial is by Andrea of Andrea's Choice back in 2010. It is a very versatile look and it is great for all the colors going on in spring and summer fashion. Try it out, I'd love to see your take on it!

And before I go, here's another award I was given by the amazing Ronida of Portable Sunshine AND Val of Pink & Golden Lights! These two girls are absolutely wonderful, and not just because they awarded me! They are two of my daily reads and I recommend you take a look at their blogs! And here's the award:

Here are the rules for nominating another blogger for this award
