My First Tutorial

Today I decided I was going to film my very first makeup tutorial. I hadn't really decided what I wanted to do for the look, so I just pulled something out of my hat! I'm still editing, and quite frankly... am thinking about trashing it and starting all over. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Here's the product list of what I used to achieve the look.

Pink Smokey Eye (Day Time)
*Urban Decay Primer Potion - Eden
*NYX Glitter Palette - Sweet Chocolate Browns (nude shade)
*Tarte for True Blood Shadow - Telepath (lid), Fairy (inner corner, highlight), V (outer v, crease)
*e.l.f. Liquid Liner - Black
*Maybelline Eye Liner - Onyx
*Duo Lash Adhesive - Clear/White
*Ardell Lashes - Demi Wispies
*Tarte for True Blood Mascara - Black
*Ulta Shimmer Powder - Pink
Here's the closing snippet I did, just so you can see the look. Sorry the audio isn't aligned yet...
