As I’ve mentioned several times in the past, one of my very favorite things that I get to do with this blog and my YouTube Channel is fulfill requests from my followers/subscribers! It is always really cool for me to know that what I am creating is something that at least one of you really want to see! It’s especially cool, though, when I get a request that I find particularly challenging or allows me to really get creative with a specific concept. Today is definitely one of those cases!
I got a request on my Facebook Fan Page from a user named Mary Serra from Brazil asking for a look inspired by Brazil! I wasn’t entirely sure where to go with that, as the request simply stated “inspired by Brazil.” So, initially I thought of doing a look from a Brazilian celebrity, like Adriana Lima or Gisele Bundchen, but I thought it would be more interesting to do a look inspired by the Brazilian culture itself. So, I immediately thought of doing a look inspired by Carnival, the annual party/festival/celebration that takes place in Brazil! I also stumbled upon some images of the Brazilian flag and thought it would be cool to use the colors from the flag for this look! Of course, Brazil being such a beautiful, tropical climate, I also knew that the skin needed to be bronzed up and have a real sun-kissed glow! Check out the tutorial below!

So, there you have my Brazilian-inspired look! I don’t know if it’s entirely what Mary Serra was looking for but I know that it was a lot of fun for me to put together! As mentioned before, I absolutely love fulfilling requests and would love to fulfill any requests any of you may have! All you have to do is let me know! In the meantime, though, I wish you all a beautiful rest of the week and a beautiful life!
