Instagram perfect pictures in 8 items: The Beauty Bonehead feat. Alex George

It’s not being self-deprecating when I dubbed myself the Beauty Bonehead.

When it comes to makeup, I seriously just don’t know what I’m doing at all.

Which is ironic because I love makeup. I have more eyeshadows than I know what do do with. Ditto for blush, lipgloss and even foundations that serve more as decoration than functional beauty products.

So when I found out that celebrity makeup artist Alex George was in town, I invited her over for some last minute beauty tips right before I left for spring break. When Alex saw what I was packing, she was beyond mortified. Alex subscribes to the “less is more” philosophy – with helpful tips like how to multitask your basics (using your eyebrow shadow as an eyeliner, or using your concealer for subtle contouring.)

Alex dumped my beauty bag, showed me the only 8 items I need for a subtle, instagram ready look, and taught me her fool-proof technique, so even I couldn’t mess it up.

    I would love to know what Alex’s fav mascaras are. I think beautiful lashes always make a big difference. Had so much fun watching this and learned some new tricks.
