here’s a very simple tutorial on the look I did last week. one statement eyeshadow, a bold look. and a handful of new great products sprinkled about.
juicy berries, from deep wine reds to shiny blue-violets, so much to play with in this week’s monochromatic look. I ended up extending the eyeshadow up to the inner corner of my brow and out, so it became a very fun vintage-inspired glam 20’s flapper vamp thingy.
playing with the vibrant vitamin C-inspired colours that are all over Instagram this summer.
I talk so much, it took me almost a day to get this video under 15 minutes… but I think I got to make a good bundles of tips and favourites for you guys.
my final look for this NYE makeup bash is the classic deep black smokey eye. it’s flattering on everyone and never goes out of style.

I decided to gather them all in one post and throw them a party.
I haven’t had this blog for too long, but long enough for you to know that I’m a sucker for cream eyeshadows. I had to give these KIKO ones a go. they’re a steal for 6,90€, and I usually really like the KIKO eye makeup products.
