I’ve been getting a ton of request for a tutorial for my day-to-day eye makeup so I decided that after over a year since swearing off videos (I had some major editing issues last time), I would try again. I’ve borrowed a fancy shmancy camera, worked out editing and thankfully have a successful new video!
So, without further ado, I present my very first makeup video tutorial! I apologise in advance for the funny makeup faces, weird comments and the fact that sometimes you can’t actually see what I’m doing because my hand is in the way! Promise I will get better!
Here is a full breakdown with tips and products-
I started with Dermalogica Skin Perfect Primer, then applied MAC Matchmaster Liquid and MAC Studio Fix over the top.
Lid- I used the lightest colour in the Chi Chi MATTES eyeshadow palette and applied using a oval brush (similar here)
Inner Corner- Applied Inglot Pure Pigment Powder in shade 75 with a smaller brush (similar here)
Crease- I used the dark brown in the Chi Chi MATTES eyeshadow palette and first applied with a large rounded brush in the corner and then up around into the crease. I then switched to a brush similar to this one although I’m not sure if this one has the flat edge.
Undereye- Smudged some of the same dark brown colour from the crease 3/4 of the way underneath bottom eyelashes using Suesh wide smudger (similar here)
- Always start with a properly prepped base- primer, concealer/foundation and powder – for optimum longevity
- For powders, natural bristles work best.
- If you have deep set eyes, avoid using anything too dark in the crease.
- For the colour to apply on your eyelid, choose a colour no more than 1-2 shades lighter than your skin. For the crease, choose a colour much darker than your skin.
- If you are just starting out with liquid eyeliners, try using a gel liner or pen tip one so you have more control over the product.
- Try to apply liquid eyeliner with your eyes open- just make sure you know when you need to blink to avoid any mess!
- Draw the flick on each eye first, ensuring you are drawing them straight out from the corner of the eye- not too far up or down
- Apply mascara first to the top of your lashes so that the base of the lashes are not left out.
- For a more natural look on the waterline, use a beige or nude coloured pencil instead of white
Any other questions please just ask!
