I did a Priceline haul a couple of months ago, and in my YouTube video I was wearing a smokey eye look by Maybelline (eye studio eyeshadow quad range). I remember people commenting after that video that they liked my makeup and would be interested in a tutorial- so here it finally is!
Today I was wandering around Kmart (Kmart stock a slightly different range to Priceline which means a few products that I don’t usually see tend to pop up here) and I came across this eyeshadow palette by Australis. As I already have the AConTour palette (of which I am a big fan) I figured for $9.75 it was definitely worth giving this newbie a try.
Ever since Urban Decay came to Mecca I have been dying to get my hands on their Naked eyeshadow palettes. Urban Decay offer a range of different eyeshadow palettes, ranging from $42 (for 6 matte eyeshadows) to $78 palettes which come in Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3 and Naked Smokey (this one is sadly not yet available for purchase at Mecca).
Today I filmed a quick bronze smokey eye look. I often am asked how I achieve this look, and so I thought I would make a quick 1 minute video to show you the stages. Please enjoy 🙂
In this video I review Nude by Nature Mineral Foundation, Maybelline Eye Shadow palettes, Maybelline Brow Drama and CoverGirl Eyebrow Pencil (you can see my other vidoe on Eyebrows for more info on these), AConTour countour kit by Australis, Color Drama lipsticks in shades Fab Organge, Light It Up and Nude Perfection by Maybelline.
I’ve been asked many times how I do my eyebrows, so finally I decided to sit down and do a YouTube eyebrow tutorial. In this video I am basically just walking you through my daily routine (which I can do in about 2 minutes, despite my 7 minute video tutorial)…
Anyway. The tools I used (as pictured above) are Maybelline Brow Drama in deep brown and Perfect Blend Covergirl Eyebrow Pencil in dark brown. As I mention in the video, if you are planning on doing your eyebrows in a shade darker than your natural eyebrow hairs, I recommend getting an eyebrow tint first so the pale eyebrow hairs can’t be spotted through the eyebrow pencil. I get mine done for $10 at a little place in Moonee Ponds and the tint tends to last me about a month before the hair fades back to my natural brown shade (definitely worth it- especially when you feel like going make-up free or can’t be bothered to do your eyebrows!)
I hope you enjoyed my video, if you have a YouTube account please subscribe! I will continue to upload my makeup reviews and tutorials. 🙂
I have tried many eyeliners over the years, and have finally found my all-time favourite. Master Precise liner is so easy to apply that I’ve found I can do my eyeliner in under 3 minutes. This is a new record!
