I have a secret, y’all: I do not have perfect skin. *GASP*

If you know me personally, you probably know that already, because I frequently go around without a stitch of makeup on. But those of you who only see me on occasion or in videos or on Instagram may be under the illusion that I have amazeballs skin solely because I know *how* to work with it. I mean seriously, SO many of you have complimented my complexion and then been totally shocked to find out that underneath my makeup there is acne and scarring and all sorts of normal-and-not-so-pretty shit going down. That’s life – being good at makeup doesn’t make me immune!

All of this makes today’s post extra super duper exciting. I have been contemplating filming my Makeup 101 series for so long due to popular demand (and my inability to have one-on-ones with all of you) and finally found the time! This is the kick-off video for the series which will be divided into four categories:

  1. Face (this video)
  2. Cheeks
  3. Eyes
  4. Lips

Each video will be in-depth and packed full of all of the information I would give you if I took you on as a one-on-one client. Seriously — I share every tip and trick I can think of, along with production recommendations, terminology education, and addressing common questions that come my way. These aren’t specific to the clean and green community – in fact, most of the products I talk about do not fit the tab – but rather a video on technique. If you like this series and want to see more, do me a solid and go HERE to give the video a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel:

So, without further ado…
