Best Of Beauty 2016 Makeup Tutorial

Best Of Beauty 2016 Makeup

Oh, happy day!  If you read yesterday’s blog post, then you probably know today is my birthday – and what better way to celebrate this special day than to share my first video for 2017!  I’m very excited about this particular video because it’s a full face makeup tutorial featuring ALL the products that rocked my world during 2016.

I’m going to keep this blog post short, because I want to take the rest of the day off to relax.  You know…maybe watch an episode of ‘Midsomer Murders’, stuff my face with cupcakes, spend some quality time with my fur babies.  Neal’s at work today, but we’ll celebrate my birthday tonight.  Oh, and remember I mentioned we were going to go to a fancy restaurant in yesterday’s blog post?  WELL…if you’re based in Pretoria or Centurion – you NEED to check out ‘The Black Bamboo’ restaurant at the Menlyn Boutique Hotel!  Neal and I opted for their 7-course Tasting Menu….oh my goodness, the food was incredible!  Their dishes are so unique, and the components of each dish work so well together.  If you’re familiar with ‘La Mouette’ in Cape Town, then you’ll know what I’m talking about.

Alright, enough about food (I’m getting hungry) – let’s take a look at the video, shall we?

Please remember to give the video a ‘thumbs up’ if you enjoyed it (it really helps me out), and share on your social media platforms if you think it’s something that might interest your friends or family.

Remember to watch in HD (720p) – all you have to do is click on the gear icon at the bottom right corner of the video screen and choose 720p.

I hope you enjoy!
