Here is the how-to video for the eye shadow I did this past weekend for my formal. It’s the weirdest thing videoing yourself because basically you’re just talking to yourself… Sorry if I’m awkward, but hey, at least I keep it real. Hopefully I’ll get better at this as time goes on. Below are some pictures of the completed look as well as a list of the products I used.

  • This is a more complicated/heavier nighttime look. When trying this out, be conscious of where you are going, what you are wearing, etc.
  • When in doubt, go lighter rather than darker. I made this mistake so many times in high school… Yikes.
  • The key is blending!
