This tutorial is way overdue, I have been slacking tremendously but at least I have a new video camera to showcase my work.  I wanted to focus on products that you would be able to find at your nearest drugstore (minus the Smashbox blush that I used).  The main products for this smokey eye look are from L’Oreal .  You probably have seen the ads and the commercials for these little pressed/loose (are they pressed or loose? Who knows?) eye shadow pots that come in a variety of colors.  I have about 12 of the colors and I love them to pieces.  The Midnight Blue is to die for and so is the Perpetual Purple.  I will post the MOTD’S I created using these two colors.  The color payoffs of each of the colors are so bold and the longevity of the wear is wonderful.

Back to the brown smokey eye… I received an email from one of my instagram/facebook follower, Brian.  The picture was from Pretty Little Liars and it was a deep intense brown glittery smokey eye.  I wanted to create more of a cat eye smokey eye to change it up a little and I did this with the help of scotch tape.  Here’s a little tip before you apply the scotch tape right on your face.  Make sure you get the tape tacky by placing it on the back of your hand and rubbing the top of it a little.  This will prevent the tape from hurting your poor delicate eye area when you take it off later.  Trust me I’ve done it and it doesn’t feel too great. OUCH!  

Hope you enjoy the new quality of the video!!! Can’t wait to make more… if I don’t get into the lazy spell again.
