Round Up: Makeup Tutorials


These are tutorials I've found and like, done by other people.



The tutorial for this look can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/e8R1Y#r1Jzv8i. I found this via Reddit, but she has lots of other awesome eye looks on her blog: StyleByCat.blogspot.com. Also, I think this would also look awesome in other colours - I tried it with some pinks and a darker pinky purple, which went great with my blue/green/gray eyes.



This is a beautiful cranberry look, a colour that looks fantastic with blue eyes. It's found here: http://www.rebeccashoresmua.com/2014/09/apply-easy-cranberry-eye-fall-tutorial/. This makeup artist is really awesome, and this is the sort of look I wear a lot.


I really love this look. This video is good, although she has some troubles with the camera quality and lighting - but so do I, so I can't judge. The important thing is the look is fantastic and you can see how to do it yourself. I love a really subtle cut-crease, because it shapes the eyelids really nicely and can look quite natural, unlike a cut crease with clashing vibrant colours, which isn't really my style. A similar look in fairly neutral tones that compliment your eye colour (subtle yellow and pinks such as those in The Balm's NudeTude palette suit my blue/green/grey eyes). It could also work using two different shades of the same colour, for a less natural but still subtle cut crease.



Now, here are a couple of simple but effective lipstick tutorials:

They are both basic but fantastic, so I recommend checking them out. :)
