VlogTalk: Simply Beautiful

YouTube Preview Image

So there you have my makeup routine on most days.

P.S. I usually do my makeup in the bathroom and not at the dining room table but for filming purposes it was easier to sit at the table.

P.P.S. Yes my bathroom counter is an ugly shade of pink. So is the shower. One day we will remodel it. Today is not that day. Tomorrow is not looking good either.

Your turn….

    Too funny! I was going to be really impressed if you had managed to fully make your self up with two children surrounding you!

    Love that you have TONS of amazing name brand make-up and you just use chapstick. Go fig. Monkey and Monster interruptions were the best ;)

      I have so many different shades of eyeshadow it’s not even funny. And I keep buying more. I hope it never goes bad.

    Your daughter(s) did a great job! I say daughter(s) because I suspect the oldest was acting like a pro, while the youngest was probably being…well, a baby! :) This was great! I think you need an extra set of arms. I can loan you mine for a few years. I’d welcome not having to drag them around.
    Sandra recently posted..This is what bloggers do on Saturday nightno- really- they do!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      My oldest put on her best acting skills for this one. My youngest though is insane all the time. If you lend me your arms maybe I can actually put on more than just chapstick in the mornings.

  6. Carri says:

    YAY! I love MAC. Even more so? The fact that a good girlfriend of mine is a makeup artist and gets it for me at 40% off! :)
    Cute vlog… I’m off to do mine!

    You are such a skilled movie maker! I am genuinely impressed!

    PS- Compared to me, your routine is so much more organized. And all I have is a dog.

      I have 2 dogs too who get in the way of my makeup process also. So many distractions so little time.

    Nice job. You have lots of swaggy cool makeup, but doesn’t look like the girls let you use it, lol. The chapstick is all you need, you have gorgeous skin!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      If the girls had their way they would take all my makeup. Luckily I’m still bigger than them. For now.

    Your oldest daughter pretending to put the make-up on in the background is awesome. I think you have a little actress on your hands there. She’s definitely good at the drama. ;) Funny video and LOVE the kiddo participation!!

    OMG! That was hilarious! I love it! Your girls are adorable & your oldest is certainly going to be the star of her own blog one day, I can see it now!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Ha! She is already trying to take over my blog. I let her write a post one time and she talks about it all the time and keeps trying to convince me to let her write more.

  13. Christi says:

    That was so funny! I’m really enjoying your vlogs and I’m wishing I had a sexy voice like yours. Mine is too high pitched. Sometimes, when I answer the phone, people even confuse me with my 11 year old daughter. If I had a sultry voice like yours, perhaps I’d vlog all the time! :-)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Thanks! It’s funny to hear you say that about my voice because when I watch my vlogs I hate the way I sound.

  14. XLMIC says:

    Your girls are hilarious! You have such a glorious makeup collection! I am jealous… even though I wouldn’t know what to do with it :P I love your vlogs!

    Love it! Just like my make up routine. My 3 yo daughter is watching with me and she wants to watch it again and again. Maybe you could get a Nick jr spot??

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I had a feeling your makeup routine would be similar to mine. Except you have more kids in the mix. I don’t know if I can get a spot on Nick Jr but I definitely can take advantage of my YouTube channel.

  16. Hehe! Well you are so beautiful that you don’t need much makeup…but I am always happy to “meet” a fellow makeup addict such as myself ;)

    So funny! I can relate! Only I usually try to lock my kids out when I’m getting ready in the morning. Unfortunately, 2 out of my 4 kids can still get in and usually the entire herd follows. :)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I’ve tried locking them out too except my oldest can get in and then the little one comes in followed by both dogs.

  30. Anne says:

    Very fun! I’m impressed that you’re able to use as much make-up as you do with the kids in the background! I love mac make-up, too. I’m still working up my nerve to do a vlog….

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      The makeup is really just for decoration on the counter lately. The only thing that really gets used is the chapstick.

  31. Rusti
    Twitter: rustilyn

    loved it – your makeup collection rocks (not that I’d get much more use of out it if I had a similar collection)… how sad though that it sits alone and neglected.. ;)

    your girls are adorable :) loved it!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Maybe one day when the children are older I will get to use it again. Hopefully it’s not all expired by then.

    Hey there. A total newbie to your blog and the whole Vlog talk. I linked up though I don’t think I had the prompt right.. I signed up so I’ll be one the ball next week.. LOL.

    Love your blog. Looking forward to following along!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Thanks for joining us for VlogTalk. It’s okay if you didn’t have the prompt right, it’s your first time. Hope you will continue to join us.

    Twitter: mrsscottmcd

    Wow, that’s an impressive makeup collection! If MAC ever sees how many products you’ve bought from them, they’ll probably make you an endorser. Hopefully, you can use your MACs someday soon, instead of just chapstick! ;)

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I hope to use them all too and the picture cut off the rest of my makeup. I really do have a lot it seems.

    Twitter: beeswithhoney

    You never look like you’re ever wearing make-up. Miss O Natural, I’ve always thought. You’re make-up routine though sounds and looks a lot like mine…the being distracted by the kids part mostly!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I’m usually not wearing more than chapstick. Sometimes I put on some eye shadow but that’s about it. Nothing on my face.

  36. Teresa
    Twitter: PatchOfBlue724

    LOL! I loved this. This is exactly why it takes me hours to get out of the house. It’s “mommy, look, mommy, look!” and a two yr old hugging my leg, pulling my shirt, as I drag myself from room to room.

  37. Tonya says:

    Love that the kids make a guest appearance again.

    Do you really own all those MAC eye shadows?! If so, then I REALLY need an eye make-up application lesson from you.

    That was hilarious. At least your kids think enough to call you by your name “Mother” – my name is “Justin took my headband” and “I’m Firsty”.

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      Ha! Those are my names sometimes too, well except for the word Justin. I don’t have boys.

    She’s having way to much fun bouncing and saying Mother over and over…Sadly that’s the reason I wear little make up. Lip Gloss/Stain and pinch of cheeks for everyday. Only add eye shadow for special outings. ;)

      I would like to wear makeup everyday but it’s hard to get ready with children whining and screaming while trying to put it on.
