Tutorial: MAC Starflash - Gold and Brown

Another sleepless night, but I've finally edited my Starflash tutorial ^__^!! Pretty exciting since I'm getting used to making these videos. Anyway, the reason it took so long was because I was trying to learn how to watermark my videos. Sorry, but please don't ask how I did the watermarking because I won't be able to answer or explain it to you since I didn't even know what I did. I had to keep tinkering with it to get it like that. But Google is your friend, and so is YouTube if you want to know how since that's how I pretty much did it, and asking around. I'm not a video editing whiz as you can tell since it's taking me days to get one video done. Hopefully it'll change as time progress though. Anyways, the whole watermarking difficulty has been taken care of, so I hope you guys will enjoy the tutorial cuz seriously tears and sweat went into the making of this video (ok maybe not, but might as well be) LOL.

What I used (all MAC unless otherwise stated):

Beige-ing shadestick
Goldmine e/s
Seedling e/s
Go e/s (MAC Starflash-LE)
Glamour Check e/s (MAC Starflash-LE)
Rose Blanc e/s [[ pretty good dupe for Dreammaker e/s (MAC Starflash-LE) ]]
Blacktrack fluidline
Laura Mercier mascara

Nuance Mineralized Blush

Kiehl's Lip Balm Tinted
Smashbox Dolcissima

Feel free to put in a request for looks since I think got this whole editing down :).

Anyway, for the next tutorial, I'll be doing a look using my new Stila set from Costco which was requested by Stephanie (aka Cuttibebe).


  1. pretty! i told u you'd get this editing thing down :)

  2. Love it! I think you're so cute with braces, hehehe.

    Bronze/browns are so great for Asian skin tones.

  3. It's beautiful! Thanks for the tutorial

  4. Great job, Anne! You're getting better and better. :)

  5. That'll make a really great look for the coming fall season... which never really arrives here in soCal.

    Kudos on the watermarking thing too. I know how time consuming video editing can be, that's why I just don't do it.

    Btw, yes ma'am, I will be at the pow wow. Can't wait to meet ya!

  6. Alyssa: thanks mamacita :)

    Ate Ren Ren: haha thanks. I know... I'm getting a tad bit used to it. You're my insipiration :)

    Fuzkittie: Thanks, but I hate them since it's my second time around with it. I just want it off already since I dont think I really need it.

    Beautiful with brains: Glad you liked it!

    Jaime: I know. I really like the texture too. I just mainly sticked to neutral ones though. But I did come back for Sunset B. when I B2M some of my stuff.

    Imee: Yea it does. When it's not hot or too cold LOL. but I can't wait to meet you as well!

  7. The vid looks good! What program do you use to edit your videos?

  8. i really like this look. i'll definitely be doing this for summer! :)

  9. I have that song! I was obsessed with it a while back lol

    The neutrals looks really pretty on you =] Do you think Nuance gives off a pink shade on your cheeks or more of a peachy bronze?

  10. Beautiful bronzey look! Makes me want to pick up some of the Starflash shadows. :)

  11. The colors looks gorgeous on you! and YAY on Nuance!! it's very pretty on you :D

  12. Shansopink: I edit my videos using Windows Movie Maker.

    cheeezie: I'm glad you liked it :)

    erica: Yea i liked that song too. so catchy! Anyway, nuance on my cheeks looks more or a golden bronze.

    allthatprettyshimmers: You should! They're awesome eyeshadows!

    Nicnic: Thanks! I really like it too! it's my second fave blush (my first will be true romantic bpb).
