August is a very important month around these here parts – Painted Ladies is 5 years old!!!! Hooray! In honor of this special occasion, I’ve put together a video with the top 5 posts on Painted Ladies. Like, ever.
This video also contains my Glamour Shots photo from high school and an outtake reel, so you’ll get a good laugh, regardless!
The top 5 posts that have ever appeared on this blog are as follows:
A really dramatic take on highlighting and contouring and one of my favorite Breaking Down Beauty posts I’ve ever done. At some point I’d like to go back and redo this post because I think I could do a better job now!
One of my goals in life and as a beauty blogger is to take the fear out of false lashes. This is another post I’d like to redo at some point because the final photo is admittedly wonky! I cringe every time I see it on Pinterest, but I’m glad it has been of some help to so many!
One of the first Breaking Down Beauty posts that ever appeared on Painted Ladies and a trick that’s saved many a broken shadow or powder in my life!
This technique is one I learned back in the day when I worked right across from a Laura Mercier makeup counter. It’s an easy process that truly boosts your eyes without piling on the makeup. Not that that’s a bad thing!
The blog post seen round the world, and the reason I’ve reconnected with family members and old friends! I am proud of this post and so thankful it’s been something that’s been of good use to you!
Thank you all, so very much, for being along for the ride for all these years. I really love sharing makeup looks, techniques, and reviews with you all and even though I haven’t met any regular readers in person, it feels like we’re old time friends!!!
This year I definitely want to expand my YouTube channel and I’m planning on some “then and now” posts where I redo some looks from the past. I am looking forward to many more years of sharing my love of the beauty industry on Painted Ladies!
