    Love these videos and started using your techniques in my everyday makeup routine. One thing for me is I love a nude lip color but can’t seem to find one I enjoy. So I end up adding my darker lip stick over it. Are there any tricks for picking the right nude shade? Must be a shimmer for me. Just sayin…

      Jacque- I have ALWAYS loved the nude lip, but I found I never liked it on myself. It wasn’t until I found a nude lip that also has a pinkish tint that I started wearing it all the time!
      And you are so right, gloss always helps.

    Can you do a hair tutorial for putting your hair up in the pin curl clips? Just go through the process of how you put it all up, how big the sections are, and if you use any product before and after? Love following your journey as Miss America! ❤️

    LOVE THIS!! Can you do a more detailed hair tutorial on using rollers and pinups to make your hair have so much volume? I absolutely adore how you make our hair look, but have no clue how to do it myself. Love you, and love following your journey! ❤️
