Get Ready With Me! | What I’m Doing This Summer + Life Update

Hey guys! I’m really excited to share what I’m doing this summer with you all!

June is a bit crazy for me, as I’m not going to be home pretty much at all in July. This month I am pre-filming a lot of videos… 18 to be exact. Yes, 18. I’ve got some exciting things coming your way, so keep an eye out!

I’ve been accepted into the Los Angeles Ballet Academy Summer Intensive, so in July, I’ll be gone and living in LA with family for an entire month. Because it is pretty much all day for five days a week, I obviously will not have time to film or write posts or anything like that. However, I am going to try and Vlog a whole bunch for you guys to include you in what I’m doing. I’m really excited about getting my butt kicked this summer!

As far as the blog scheduling is concerned, in June I’ll be uploading my normal Wednesday and Friday videos and posts, but in July, I’ll only be posting on Wednesdays, unless I Vlog, which will end up going up whenever.

I’m really excited to share this summer with you all! I love you guys lots, and I’ll see you guys later!

Bronze Goddess Makeup Tutorial

Hey guys!

Bronzy makeup is personally my favorite for evening events and special occasions for the summertime. I thought I’d share with you one of my go-to looks for summer!

For the base, I used my Custom Blend Foundation, however other times I will use the Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation. I also used the It Cosmetics Waterproof Concealer to brighten my under-eyes, color correct, and prime my nose. Everything breaks up on my nose, so priming prevents that. To set my face, I’m using the Motives Luminous Loose Powder and I set my under eyes with the Birch shade from the Motives Elements Color Box.

For the eyes, I’m using the Covergirl Tru-Naked Goldens Palette, but I love the Present by Scott Barnes for Motives eyeshadows for a golden-bronze look. I’ll start with the lightest shade in the palette and apply that as a base. Now I’m going to use both the Motives Luxe Creme Shadows in Gold Dust and Brown sugar, which is completely not necessary to use both. Use one or the other. I then apply the matte brown shade and apply this to the crease. Then I spritzed my brush with the Motives Ten Years Younger Setting Spray and I’m using the chocolatey-bronze shade on the outer 3/4’s of my eye. Then I take the gold shade and apply this to the inner corners of the eye. I blend this out with a flat brush to create a gradient effect.

For eyeliner, I used the Rimmel London eyeliner in Sparkling Emerald (they don’t carry it anymore, so I’ll link the Motives Kohl Liner in Green Envy) on the lower lash line to add a pop of color. I blend that out with the sponge applicator on the lower lash line. I used two different mascaras, but I’m going to tell you to use the Motives Fiber Lush Mascara because it is genuinely my most favorite mascara.

For the rest of the face, I’m using the Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette (this apparently doesn’t exist anymore, I’m so sorry guys! I suck at this… lolz… here’s the link to a bronzer, blusher, and highlighter similar to the ones I used!) and I’m using the contour, the blush, and the highlight. For the lips, I’m going to use the BareMinerals Gen Nude Liquid Lipcolors in the shade Boss.

This concludes my versatile professional/evening makeup tutorial! I hope you guys enjoy it, and if you guys recreate this look, be sure to tweet or Instagram me a photo! I love you guys so much, and I’ll see you in my next video!

Spring Makeup Tutorial


    Hey guys!

I’d like to say happy spring, but I feel like the weather is not cooperating…

Anyways, I was super inspired by the rain this season and I wanted to create something that was fresh and dewy, using (OMG) these cream shadows I created myself through Motives Custom Blend! If you didn’t see last Wednesday’s post, I’ll link it here.

Starting with the skin, I applied first the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Pearl after applying my serums and moisturizers. I then took the foundation that I made myself with Motives Custom Blend (email me if you are interested at sungeunrose@gmail.com) and applied this with a synthetic kabuki brush. I then felt like I wanted a little extra coverage, so I took my Motives Long-Wear Liquid Concealer and applied that on my dark spots and blemishes and dark circles. To set that, I went into my Lorac Pro Contour Palette and used the shade Beige Highlight.

I moved onto my brows while the powder sets. I used my Youngblood Eyebrow Artiste in the shade Blonde and used the wax. I also used my BareMinerals Brow Powder in Dark Blonde and filled it in. I set my brows in place with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel. 

I then went back into my Lorac Pro Contour Kit and took the Yellow Highlight and put this under my eyes and where most of my larger pores are. I then took the shade Light Contour and using a beauty blender, I carved out my cheekbones. For blush, I used my BareMinerals Blush in Morning (I linked Vintage Peach because it is the closest to Morning). For highlighter, I dampened my brush lightly with some water and used the Makeup Revolution Baked Highlighting Powder in the shade Peach Lights and applied this to the high points of my cheekbones and on the tip of my nose.

For eyes, I first went in with my custom created cream eyeshadow in what I called “Mermaid” and applied this all over my lid with a flat synthetic brush. You can use a flat brush or your fingers, and it will turn out beautiful either way. Dipping into my Motives Cosmetics Elements Color Box, I took the shade Abergine and applied that with a tapered blending brush into my crease. I took a clean blending brush and blended out the harsh lines.

I then took the shade Serene and applied that with a flat shader brush and carved out my crease slightly. I went over my lid again with Mermaid because I felt like I lost the color a little bit. I then went in with another one of my custom created cream eyeshadows in the shade Diamond White and gently applied that over the blue shade. It created this fresh, almost brightening effect with the blue that I fell in love with.

On a small brush, I took Mermaid on my lower lash line and blended that out from outer corner and faded it in to about halfway. I used Diamond White to highlight the inner corners of my eyes. I also went into my Elements Palette again and used the shade Birch as an eyeliner for the inner rims of my eyes.

For Mascara, I used both the Motives Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara and the Buxom Mascara. I love the formulation of the Motives Mascara but I love the brush of the Buxom Mascara, so I end up mixing the two to get my perfect lashes.

For lips, I used a BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in the shade Fly High (I’m sorry, I didn’t know it was discontinued). I wanted to tone done the lavender undertones and I went over that with the Motives Moisture Rich Lipstick in the shade Icon.

There you have it! One of my favorite looks for spring. I hope you all enjoyed this! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week and I love you guys! See you guys on Sunday!

I Made Foundation & Eyeshadow?!


Motives Cosmetics Custom Blend Event Training

    Hey guys!

Today, you guys get to follow me today to Brea, California to learn about how to custom blend foundations, concealers, powders (including bronzing, blushers, and highlighters), and eye products!

I just want to give a quick shoutout to our amazing trainer and friend Lynda who was absolutely incredible! Not only is she gorgeous, but she is incredibly talented and her story is inspiring. I’m so thankful to have met her!

This event lasted all day, however it was incredibly worth it. I was so inspired by what I learned, and I’m thinking up some ideas and excited to start creating things! I got to learn how to properly match the colors for different skin tones and how to look for their undertones. I got to create my perfect foundation through this course, so I am so excited to be inviting you guys along in the journey.

I especially was excited to create my own custom cream eyeshadows! I wanted a blue-green eyeshadow to create a really fresh look for spring, and I got to create a color that was perfect for what I wanted. I created three other colors as well, all so intensely pigmented and surprisingly EXTREMELY long-wearing. Long-wearing as in, did not budge through a long 12-hour day of dance, school, traveling, etc.

There will be a video coming soon using these shadows and of course, my foundation. I can’t wait to show you guys!

I hope you guys enjoy the Vlog! Give this post a like and please share with your friends! Love you all, and I’ll see you Sunday!

Valentine’s Day Makeup Tutorial

   Hey Guys!!! Welcome to today’s blogpost! It’s all around Valentine’s Day, obviously. Of course, you can modify this look to whatever you choose, but this was the look best suited for me. I find that purples look good on all eye colors, whether it’s blue, brown, hazel, green, etc. I hope you guys enjoy this, and let’s get started!

We’re going to start off with foundation. I’m mixing the Motives Mineral Liquid Powder Foundation and the It Cosmetics CC Cream Foundation with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter. I will be blending this is with my terribly battered beauty blender. For concealer, I’ll be using the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless concealer and I’m using this to highlight my under eye area, my nose, chin, forehead, and on any scarring or blemishes I have. To set all of that, I’ll be using my Tarte Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation and the Ambient Lighting Palette in the shade “Radiant Light.”

For eyes, I’m using the Motives “I DO” palette and it has easily become my new favorite. I’m taking the shade “Lace” and applying this all over my lid, through the crease, all the way up to the brow bone. Now I’m taking the shade “Cake” and using this in my crease, bringing it down slightly into the ouster corner. I’m using these Bare Minerals Shadow Sticks (honestly, I have no idea what it’s called). The writing is so tiny that I don’t actually know what the shades are, but I’m taking the darker purple shade on the outer corner and the lighter white shade on the inner corner. I’m going to use a fluffy blending brush to blend that together.

Tip: You can apply the shade “Dance” from the “I DO” palette on the outer corner and the shade “Rings” on the inner corner. I did this later to add a bit of extra dimension to the eyes. I am now taking a clean fluffy brush and blending this all out do there’s no harsh lines.

For brows, I’m using the Youngblood Eyebrow Kit and I’m taking the wax and carving out my brows and filling in the sparse areas. I will then set those brows in place with the Browgal Clear Brow Gel. To highlight that brow bone, I’m using the Loc Shadow Stick in the shade “Out of Your Shell.” This is the first time I’m using this and to be honest, I don’t know quite how I feel about it yet. I will then set that with the shade “Lace” from the “I DO” palette.

I’m taking the Motives Liner in the shade “brown” and putting that in my waterline. For my lower lashline, I’m mixing “Cake” and “Dance” together and smudging out the eyeliner to smoke it out slightly. Now we are going to do some winged liner, so I am using the Tarte Precision Long-Wear Liner in “Black” and I’m going to create a wing. And I’m using the Motives Volumizing and Lengthening Mascara for my top and lower lashes.

Back to the face, we are using the bronzer in my “I DO” palette in the shade “Toast” and I’m going to contour and bronze. Right next to it is the blush in “Love” and it is beautiful. My favorite part of the entire look is applying highlighter, so I am using the shade vows, which is my favorite highlight that I own, which is a big statement BTW.

For lips, I’m using the Motives Moisture Rich Lipstick in the shade “Icon” and then I felt like it needed something a little bit extra, so I used the BareMinerals All-Over Face Color in the shade “True.” It’s quite glittery and highlight-y, and you all know how much I love a good glow. And that concludes, this Valentine’s Day Makeup Tutorial!

I hope you guys enjoy this! Have an absolutely wonderful Valentine’s Day! See you guys Sunday for LIFE ON POINTE! Love you all!

My Go-To Natural Makeup Look

This natural makeup look is really quick, easy, and simple. I just want to let you guys know that I don’t always do this. Somedays, I’ll just put on some moisturizer and sunscreen and go, but I like to do this when I feel extra tired. Just know, you do not have to wear makeup to be beautiful. You are beautiful with or without makeup, blemishes and all. But just in case you guys are looking for something easy to achieve on a day-to-day basis, here’s my look.


Starting off with the face, we are first going to moisturize, and put on some sunscreen. You will want to prime your face, but I’ve ran out and it’s on my list to get a new one. I’m using the Rodan+Fields Soothe Sunscreen. I then mix two foundations with a bit of my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl to get my perfect color. The first is the Motives LaLa Liquid Foundation and the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Liquid Foundation.

When it comes to a natural makeup look, flawless skin is a big must for me. So today, I am using the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer to cover up any blemishes and my dark circles. I then set my face with the Tarte Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation and the Motives Luminous Loose Powder in Medium. I will then set my under-eye area with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in the shade Radiant Light.

For bronzer, I’m taking the shade Dim Light from my Hourglass Palette and for highlight, I’m taking the shade Incandescent Light. I don’t do any blusher since I feel like it’s a bit extra for me personally. I like the super natural, your-skin-but-better look.


I usually go back and forth between the Covergirl TruNaked Goldens Palette or the Lorac Pro I Palette, or I just throw on mascara and be done. Today, I went for the Lorac Pro I Palette. I take the colors white and cream and put them all over the lid, crease, and brow bone with a flat shader brush. I will then take a fluffy blending brush with the color taupe and lightly dust this into the crease, keeping it more in the outer corner for a natural shadow.

Going back with the color cream, I’m going to lighten up the lid just a bit more with a small flat shader brush. I also decided to add a little bit of light pink for a similar effect.

I’m going to now take a precise tapered blending brush or a pencil brush and I’m using the color espresso to gently smoke out the top lash line for a little extra dimension, which will make your eyes look a little more awake.

Now I’m taking the Motives Kohl Liner in Coffee and I’m going to tight line. To make my eyes look wider and more awake, I am only putting this on the outer half of my lower lash line. Back with the pencil brush, I’m going to lightly smoke out the lower lash line with the two colors sable and espresso. I will then go in with my Motives Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara on my top and lower lashes.

Now I use my BareMinerals Brow Powder and my Browgal Brow Gel for my brows. I feel like this is a really important step with your brows frame the face, so I go a little more on the heavy handed side for my brows when I do natural makeup.


Now is the time when I will either throw on some chapped stick or a lip oil on and be done, but today I wanted some color to my lips, so I chose the Motives Moisturizing Lipstick in Icon and the Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain in Lucky for my lip combo.
