ELF COSMETICS H2O LINER PEN VS MAC BRUSHSTROKE FELT EYELINER

Image
Happy to bring you a dupe for the Mac Brushstroke felt eyeliner. Not only is it a dupe and supremely inexpensive but it's also CRUELTY FREE! I don't know how ELF cosmetics does it but all I can hope is that they keep doing it! #crueltyfreemakeup #elfcosmetics #elfvsmac As of February 1st 2019 every product I purchase professionally and personally is cruelty free. I will no longer support the testing of cosmetics on animals by purchasing products from brands that test on animals. In my 2019 Project Pan, I have a ton of products that were tested on animals that I previously purchased and therefore ignorantly supported animal testing in the past. These products I will use until I am finished and will no longer purchase those brands. In the near future I plan to do comparison videos and blog posts with those said. It’s 2019, there are alternatives. xoxo Erika www.ForlinisBeautyBar.com https://www.amazon.com/shop/erikawithak

Hi everyone! I have been using a new computer and so a new editor for my videos. I have been using the Photos App for Windows 10 which is free but definitely harder to use than Movie Maker. So after I messed around with it a bit, I decided to make this video for anyone else having a hard time or just starting out with YouTube using the free Photos App on Windows 10. This video is great for beginners. If anyone want's more in depth videos please let me know in the comments below on what you would like more info on!

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

Image
I’ve been changing things up a bit here and so I thought I’d take a minute FINALLY to talk about the big changes. So, for starters I want to say that I am no longer “brand loyal” to any business other than Blush Brush and Blow Dry by Erika with a K. I am loyal to my business and what it stands for: Beauty+Integrity. I’ve morally been here for years but it took me too long to physically get my brand here. I am proud to scream from roof tops that my business is OFFICIALLY 100% CRUELTY FREE!  What does this mean? In 2019 brands are still testing their products on animals. And we, as a society, allow and support it by continuing to purchase products from those said brands. I just want you to really think about that. Or maybe look up what some of those testings include. It may not seem like a big deal to some but to me it is a HUGE deal. So I’ve been working on some major changes in the last few months to seamlessly get us to this new place.  What does all of this mean for y
