Recap: Amanda’s ‘Beauty-ful’ Snapchat Takeover [Videos + Photos + Notes]

Mission accomplished.


As promised many, many (many) emails ago, Blog Xpressions is working fast and furiously to secure the eyeballs of women – worldwide, that is, by incorporating live video into our content! 🎥

Get ready, Xpressionists! We’re going to be producing more than just blog posts. We’re aiming for more videos! How about that!?

The goal is to empower, educate and enrich the lives of our beautiful women.

I am so grateful that God gave me the talent to be able to write and capture the hearts and minds of women who are in the need of something positive, consistent, and, most importantly, helpful and uplifting.

As I have mentioned many times before, I run this writing machine by myself! Just me. Solo. That’s it.

And while I do value the fact that I don’t have to answer to anyone (unlike my full-time corporate job), I am happy to GIVE answers and a platform for other like-minded women to #xpress their God-given talents.

Working with other people here on Blog Xpressions has been an absolute blessing. I am so thankful for my contributors for kicking some serious butt on the blogging circuit!

Their contributions to the lifestyle section of this blog have really helped me and other women learn a lot from their talents.

Let’s take Ms. Amanda, for example, she’s an amazing makeup artist.

We all know that when it comes to makeup, you either have it or you don’t.

And we gotta admit, the girl is fire! 🔥

With all that being said, let’s jump into Amanda’s amazing Snapchat takeover that she did on July 19.👻

It was Blog Xpressions’ first takeover and she kilt (spelled like this on purpose) it! Sending a HUGE thank you to all the people that tuned in – we appreciate your support!

With over 250+ snaps teaching us how to care for our skin, showing us the products she uses to achieve a flawless look, and lastly, the finished masterpiece, Amanda proved that she’s definitely worthy of “beating some face!” 💄

By the end of that tutorial, she achieved that ‘glow up‘ effect.🌞

I know some of you couldn’t make it in time to view the snaps (Snapchats’ videos/images vanishes in 24 hours), so I downloaded some of the snaps.

Lucky you.

Here’s the link to view: Amanda’s Snapchat Takeover

The best way to view the downloaded snaps is in ascending order. Again, these are just some of them to give you some insight of how the takeover went.

She went so hard by giving an impeccable tutorial on her skincare, foundations, eye makeup, lip hydration, etc. (“Don’t have crusty lips!”)

Wanna take a peek at my notes? I tried listing and categorizing all the products she mentioned during the tutorial.
