Hi everyone! Here is a super-fun video (with bonus cute dog) to make your Friday amazing. If you can't see it below, you can watch it here.

Points of interest...#1. Brain problems are real. Maybe the term that I am most proud of introducing into the beauty lexicon, I explain what they are and how to manage them. (0:53)#2. YAGNI. What does this acronym mean? How does it apply to makeup? Learn why keeping it simple (sweetie) is the best approach. (1:41)#3. Don't be too hard on yourself. Prepare for some motivational slogans and feminist dinosaur advice! (2:16)#4. Rules aren't real. The sad, sad tale of my lifelong fear of blue eye makeup, as well as the ONE rule you absolutely, totally must not break. I bet you can guess what it is. (2:58)#5. Don't get stuck. Another story, this time about a boss I had once upon a time. The importance of trying new things and being brave cannot be overstated! (3:39)

And now, let's talk: What's the best beauty advice that you wish you could go back in time and tell your beginner-self? What's the best beauty advice you've ever received? Have you ever had the delightful experience of being covered in sweat and dog hair while filming a video? Because it is WONDERFUL.
