MakeUp Videos Showcasing My Huda Beauty Lippie and Wet and Wild Lippies

I am loving my Huda Beauty Lippie and the Wet and Wild Lippies.

Check out the latest makeup videos I made. The first one is a more natural look. The second one is a lot more colorful and is a night look.

Here is the natural look.

Here is my final look. I absolutely love how simple and natural-looking my makeup looks.

Here is the more colorful night look.

Hello everyone! I wanted to create a night look using my new Huda Beauty Bawse Demi Matte Lip Cream. I love this lip cream because it is long-lasting. The color is very bold and helps create a very striking contour of my lips. The lip cream has a hint of menthol so it has tingling feeling when you put it on your lips. It uses a formula called Maxi-Lip and it helps hydrate your lips.

Here is a video of me buying the Huda Beauty lippie.

A few months ago when I first came back from Nicaragua and Costa Rica trip I went to the mall and tried on the Bawse Huda Beauty lippie.

It was awesome and I absolutely loved it. I finally got it and last night I thought I would try on the color along with my other makeup. Check out the final look in the video up top.

Sophisticated Night Look

Here is a video tutorial featuring my Huda Beauty Bawse lippie.

I Made Lip Balms Using the STMT D.I.Y. Tinted Lip Tint Kit


Hello Everyone! I tried the tinted lip tint kit. It was lots of fun.

Check out this STMT Lip Tint kit. This was lots of fun to work with.

Check out my tutorial video.

Why Do I Love to Create Video Tutorials?

I love to create video tutorials because I would like to share what I have learned to my blog viewers. In the past I had always wanted to create my own beauty products, but I did not get a chance to until I got these STMT kits from Target. Once I got the kits creating the beauty products was an easy task. After I got my hands on the kits I decided to film me creating the beauty products. I then turned the video clips into video tutorials so I could show you all how easy it is to make beauty products with the use of the STMT Kits.

What Inspired Me to Create Beauty Products?

I have been inspired by the magazine Willow and Sage. They have the best recipes. I have a few of their magazine issues. I also have used the internet to search new recipes from Willow and Sage and have gotten awesome ideas.

I also often go to the grocery store to check out their beauty products. I love seeing what kind of lip scrubs and soap they have. I have also been frequenting the BABS Bath Shop to check out their products. BABS Bath Shop is located on Main Street in Red Bluff, California.

My Future in the Beauty Industry?

Some day, I hope to be able to sell my beauty products at the Saturday market here in Red Bluff or online. Check out more of my blog posts to see all of the videos tutorials I have created. STMT kits and also the Bramble Berry Kits were the best kits for me to use for creating the products and the video tutorials. You can purchase STMT Kits on Amazon and Bramble Berry Kits can be purchased at BrambleBerry.com.

Graphic Design Section of Tailor Brands

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you all a feature that TailorBrands has. It is the graphic design section. You can create really cool posts for your Facebook and Instagram using the templates they have. Here are some of the cool posts I made.

I just clicked on the graphic design tab on the left and chose the create a social media post for Instagram and this is what it popped up with. As you can see here I had some fonts to choose from. It was a really easy process.

You can also choose to create Facebook posts using this feature on TailorBrands.com. Here is a view of what I was able to make for Facebook.

Here is a cool post I made 🙂

Creating social networking ads is an awesome way to reach your audience. I made a Facebook page and a Twitter page specifically for my Peri Winkle Petal company. I have 10 people so far who like my Facebook page. It is a step in the right direction.

I think reaching your audience via social media is a great way because it is cheap and easy. In the future once I have my products, I would like to purchase some ads. I think it will be one of the best ways to reach my audience.

I have also purchased business cards and I would like to be able to reach a target market with those; however, business cards are to be passed out and it is harder to reach a large audience unless you go to a conference for your specific product or attend social gatherings that may have people interested in your products.

Free Give Aways and Discounts

I learned that you can do free give aways and discounts to help boost traffic to your site. For example, you can post, visit my site and get 10% off on your first purchase. Another thing you can say is visit my site to receive a free give away.

I am still exploring how to reach my target niche so I am in the beginning stage of marketing my company. I will be sharing with you more of my marketing Peri Winkle Petal experience. Stay tuned for more posts about starting your own company.

Here is a video I made about my advertising experience for Peri Winkle Petal.

I also made an Etsy profile. I made a really cool logo with image pic on Tailor Brands. It was really easy to do. I just used a template.

Here is the link to my Etsy shop. I don’t have anything posted yet, but I will soon: www.etsy.com/shop/PeriWinklePetal

I also sent out an email with an email banner with the Peri Winkle Petal logo. It was just a short message, but it announced that I have a product coming soon.

I wrote:

Hello everyone!
There is a new lip gloss coming out soon on my site PeriWinklePetal.com. It is a Peach Bellini lip gloss made out of Bramble Berry products.
Thanks, Therese


Here is the banner below that I made with Tailor Brands.
I also made a new blog post with graphic design work made on TailorBrands.com.

Here is the ad that I made.

Hello everyone! Check out my latest tutorial! It is how to create your own signature scent. It was lots of fun to make. I also made a video tutorial. Later on below I talk about why video tutorials are great for teaching students how to create their own beauty products.

I am loving my signature scent kit 🙂

Why Video Tutorials Are Awesome!

Great for Visual Learners

Video tutorials are great for visual learners. It allows your students to learn using a visual and audio type of learning. Video tutorials are great for teaching students how to create their own beauty products because it allows them to see the ingredients, how to combine them properly, how to mix them, and get the final product ready.

Accessible at Any Time and Students Can Learn On Their Own Pace

Tutorials are great because it allows the students to access them at any time and they can learn on their own pace. They only need WiFi in order to be able to watch the lessons. The key thing I try to do is to make sure my videos are short and to the point. The students can also skip around when learning. For example, they can start with learning about making lip glosses or they can start with making roll on fragrances.

Kits Have All of the Things You Need

The kits have been great for teaching because all of the ingredients are all there and ready in a package. There is no need to go shopping for each ingredient. I think kits allow anyone to be able to get the ingredients at a cheap price. There is no need to order each ingredient online if they are not available in stores.
