6 Realistic And Actually Easy-To-Follow Makeup Tutorials

Sometimes YouTube is the only way to go.

If you're anything like me, you spend hours every week watching makeup tutorials of all sorts wishing you could do half of the makeup these Youtube gurus do. Makeup does take a lot of practice and a lot of mistakes will occur, but here are some of a few that actually will help you. I've watched every single video that I mention and link down below!!

1. Jaclyn Hill's How To: Contour, Blush, Highlight, and Bake The Face

Jaclyn Hill is my one of, if not my favorite Youtubers so you'll see a lot of her in this article. Aside from her natural humor, she is one of the best out there at describing how to do certain looks and it makes it seem so easy. This video is one of my favorites of hers and I often look at it for help.

2. Casey Holmes' My Go-To Makeup Look!

Casey Holmes is right beside Jaclyn Hill for my favorite beauty gurus and I find myself watching her videos alllll the time. Sometimes her videos can get lengthy, but I could watch and do the looks she talks about all day long.

3. Laura Lee's Easy Natural Makeup | 5 Minute Makeup|

If you're looking for someone funky who's always doing different and new things you have to check out Laura Lee. Every video she does her makeup she reminds her viewers why she's doing certain things and gives plenty of tips and tricks too!

4. Genamourr's How to Use ABH Dipbrow Pomade

Maybe it was just a me problem, but I had literally no idea how to use this stuff when I bought it. Every time I dipped a brush in the pomade, a ton of product would come off and it literally looked like I painted my eyebrows on. It was brutal. This video I've watched probably six times while trying to get the hang of it.

5. AlexandrasGirlyTalk's How to Apply Eyeshadow PERFECTLY

I'm guilty of watching this video a million times too. It's so easy to follow along and understand what she's saying and where she's getting at. Eyeshadow is by no means easy and this tutorial helped so much!

6. Carli Byble's Simple Every Day Makeup Tutorial

Carli Byble is another huuuuge Youtuber with well over 5 million subscribers, so trust me when I say she knows what she's doing. In general, talk through tutorials are so much easier to follow along compared to voice over ones and luckily she does mostly talk through ones!

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

8 Tips For Showing Your Cold Who's Boss

How to feel a little more alive.


I've been battling a cold for the past few days now. As I've lain around my house suffering and sniffling, I've realized that others share my predicament. A lot of people have been getting sick lately, so I thought I'd write something that might help a few of those people:

1. Prevention.

The best way to deal with a cold is to not get one in the first place! Taking vitamins, washing your hands, and not eating other people's food will make sure you stay healthy. Things like stress levels and diet can also mess with your immune system and make you more susceptible to disease. There will most likely be times when you still get sick, but you'll get sick a lot less often if you are taking preventative measures.

2. Rest.

Take your time. Don't push yourself too hard. If you need to take a day off from work or school, then take it. What's been helpful for me is staying home and taking naps. You may have trouble sleeping at night if you're sick, so take some time to nap, if you can. We live in a busy world that isn't so forgiving on us if we take a break, but if you can, you should.

3. Nutrition.

I feel like I talk a lot about nutrition in my articles (maybe I should follow my own advice). It's because nutrition is so vital for your health, especially when you aren't healthy. Soup is a classic remedy for colds, and it's easy to see why when you have one! If you get a light soup, like chicken noodle, it'll be easier on your stomach if it's upset. Make sure it's got plenty of veggies in it. Soup is also easy to swallow if you have a sore throat. Be sure to drink plenty of water, too. You can add some lemon, lime, or other fruits if you want.

4. Medicine.

I don't usually take medicine when I have a cold, but if you need cold medicine, go ahead. (Just be sure not to stack medicines or take too much at a time. Medicine is great, but it can also be dangerous.) You can also find some Vitamin C tablets or powders. I've noticed a huge difference in how I feel and how long my cold lasts when I take Vitamin C.

5. Fresh air.

Even if you just step outside for a minute, getting some air and sunshine will boost your mood. If it's rainy and cold, feel free to forgo this tip for a bowl of soup and a warm blanket, but if it's a nice day, maybe sit on the porch and enjoy yourself. You can feel really cooped up, stuffy, and icky if you've been quarantined to your room all day.

6. Light exercise.

Even if you feel like death, a little exercise can help with your health. This isn't a great idea if you're practically bedridden, but if it's been a few days and you're feeling a little better, then take a light walk. Stretch your legs and get your blood pumping. You can combine this tip with the previous one, too. Just be gentle, though. If you're beginning to feel like it's too much, don't push yourself. Let this exercise simply be refreshing, not super challenging.

7. Get dressed.

When you've got a stuffy nose and cough, people will understand that you want to wear sweats. Feel free to! Getting dressed, though, can help boost your mood. I don't mean wear a dress and heels, but something as simple as wearing jeans instead of leggings can make you feel more put together and more human.

8. Clean everything.

Throw away your tissues and empty Vitamin C packets, wash your blankets and clothes, and spray everything with Lysol! Your living space has been a Petri dish for the past week. This is especially cathartic when you've just gotten over your cold. Open the windows and let some fresh air in. Enjoy the health you have longed for so desperately!

I hope these tips can help you feel a little better even if you feel like your head will pop with all of the congestion you have. Remember, colds don't last forever. Just hang in there!
