On Sunday, I had planned to film my December fav's, but being snowed in by the almighty "Arctic Blast" that is sweeping the midwest to the east, I felt inspired to create another winter makeup look. This one was actually an experiment; not having practiced it before. I like how it turned out for the most part. It is pretty close to what I had in mind. However, I would like to make note that I regret having used the wet mineral shadow on the waterline. My eyes were very irritated later. But to a large extent, everything else worked out fine and looked nice (at least I think so). To see how I created this look play the video below.
What I used:
Tarte Lifted Primer
Physician's Formula Organic Black Mascara
Stila Lip Glaze in Smooch
OFRA Lipgloss plumer in Sultry

Mineral Versatile Powder in Deep Plum #13

When a sweetie subbie of mine, LesChampis, asked almost a month ago, that I do a "Saturday Night Shimmer Look" for a tutorial, I was uncertain how I really wanted to go about it. I remembered one of my favorite music videos I liked to watch when I first started doing makeup tutorials on a previous channel. In this video, Edward Maya and Mia Martina - Stereo Love, the young lady had a bronzed gold cateye. I have always wanted to do that particular look, but put my own spin on it.
After playing around with my Color Theory, I came up with this look. It is everything I imagine a glitzy Saturday Night makeup look would be.
I love pairing dramatic eyes with a nude lip, but a red lip would look just as refined.
Up close shot.
