Soft Neutral Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial
Sandra Friday, May 29, 2015
I recently published this instagram photo and some of you lovely ladies asked me to film a tutorial for the makeup look I was wearing, which is what I have for you today. My eye makeup look is slightly different, because I don't remember all the shades that I used the first time around, and I also toned down the intensity. On purpose. When I film a video knowing I won't be going outside that day, I always put on a few extra layers. My studio lights tend to 'absorb' makeup, meaning it always turns out less intense on camera than it actually is in real life, which is why I allow myself to be heavy-handed sometimes. But when I know I'll be walking around in public afterwards, I tone it down a notch to avoid the noticable cakyess and potential weird looks. Hence why this makeup tutorial turned out a bit meh. It's annoying, but let's roll with it, haha. When I was trying to come up with a new, appropriate title for the look, I asked my sister for suggestions, and she described it as the 'I'm going out with friends but I'm going home before they hit the club, because I'm way underdressed' look. While the title didn't make the cut, being a wee bit too long, I think she was spot on. Where would you wear this look?
