My First Vlog! How To Do A Smoky Shadow

Wowowowow guys! I'm so so excited to post this, lots of you have asked for it before and I did do a picture tutorial here, but a vlog is so much better. I love watching other vlogs and seeing how they applied their makeup and brushes used.

So, I did do my face makeup first because like I say in the video, I didn't want to be a zombie and scare you folks! Usually, I always do my shadow first so if I have to clean up under my eyes from fall out it's easy to do.

Here's the look I'm re-creating, it's the one I wore for the Vegas Bachelorette Party in the UD Naked Palette Review

Sorry for some of the mumbling, at those parts I'm just saying how awkward/weird it is to do your makeup into your computer because your image is mirrored.

Ok, so here it is! Awesome opening pic right?

For the shadows I used UD Palete Sidecar, Smog, Hustle.You could also use MAC Romp and Woodwinked. MAC Typographic- for a darker look use MAC Carbon. Victoria Secret All-Over Powder in Star, this also looks great on your cheeks over your blush. Victoria Secret Beauty Rush in Gold Rush is also great.

Again, this look is great for any eye shape. You want the darkest color at your lash line and go lighter as you get into your crease. If you have small eye lids, I would probably just use 2-3 colors, the middle all over your lid, the medium on your lash line to mid-lid and the darkest on your lash line. 

Here's a guide for the shadows and the placement as well.

So what do you think? Are you going to try it? Any suggestions for my next vlog or tips in making a better one?
