Eye Makeup Tutorials

Last night over dinner with friends, the subject of eye makeup came up.  I’m 25 and I guess I kind of thought maybe I was the rare one that actually had to FIGURE out (and still am) the different ways to apply makeup (it’s like an art, seriously!)  I mean, I knew basics…but, as a teenager I mostly stuck with neutrals – whereas I’ve experimented with some bolder colors and outfits now that I’m…older (*cough*).

Anyhow, I thought I’d share a couple of helpful how-to videos from YouTube by Makeup Geek.  They’re easy and don’t come across like a MAC commercial like so many do.

I know many of you, like me, probably don’t have the cash or local stores to buy MAC and Urban Decay products (although they are online) – so, I found a couple of my favorite drugstore (or Walmart) products to share with you.

My favorite eyeliner:  L’Oreal Infallible (in the dark brown…black is too harsh for me).  It usually runs between about $6-8.  Then, after I apply it, I use a little bit of powder to brush lightly over it to set it.

My favorite “out on the town” eyeshadow:  Wet N’ Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio.  As a kid, Wet N’ Wild had a reputation for being the trashiest and crappiest of makeup brands, but I have to say… I REALLY like these trio sets.  They’re bold and fun and pretty.  Also, if you’re not familiar with eye makeup, each color is labeled as to where you put it (with a diagram on the back of the packaging) AND your colors are already put together for you!

I have the one above, but this one is my FAVORITE set of colors:

Now, for the videos…
