Well, the pigs must be flying, because I’m getting ready to share an eye makeup tutorial here on my blog!
You guys have NO IDEA how hard making this video was for me! Let me explain why…
Have you ever been asked, “If there was ONE thing you could change about your physical appearance, what would it be?”
I have, and my answer has always been my eyes.
Not my hair, or my teeth, or my hips, or my height….but my eyes.
I have tiny eyes. Like, I used to get teased when I was younger because they were so small. When I smile, they get all squinty, and I am always so jealous of girls that have big, round eyes. The kind that you don’t even have to wear eye makeup with, and you still look beautiful.
When I don’t have eye makeup on, I don’t even look like the same person. I’ve had people see me without full eye makeup on, and they say, “Wow! I didn’t even recognize you! You don’t even look like the same person without makeup on!”
Of course, I do not take that as a compliment, because no one ever follows that statement with…“and you look so pretty!” haha!
So basically, my eyes have always been an insecurity for me.
But this past year, I started wearing my eye makeup a little differently, and all of a sudden the NUMBER ONE question I get asked on my Instagram stories is “Can you do an eye makeup tutorial?”
Not, “Can you show me how to style a coffee table?” or “What are the paint colors in your home.” or “What is your decorating style?”
It’s, “Can you do an eye makeup tutorial?!” A HUNDRED TIMES A DAY!!!!
Well, I certainly take that as a compliment, but I laugh because I feel like I have NO IDEA what I’m doing when it comes to makeup tutorials. And truthfully, I don’t. So watch this video at your own risk. haha!
And if you are a beauty blogger or know anything at all about how to apply makeup, I suggest you click away ASAP. :) This video is not for you. This video is for those of you who no absolutely NOTHING about applying makeup. hahahahaha!
No, seriously, I am sharing this video because I LOVE MY TRIBE of ladies that follow me on Instagram. I love them so much that I will even film myself without eye makeup on, even though it is one of my biggest insecurities. That’s love, y’all. :)
Below the video is a list of the products I use. I thought that all of my brushes were from Sephora, but actually, only the blending brush was. I bought it in a “airbrush” set that you can see linked below this video. But I found some similar brushes to the other ones I used, like the angled brush, and I linked them below the video as well.
If you have any questions about any of the products I used, just let me know in the comments!
