Tutorial: Blue Smoke

Like this? Pin it on Pinterest!

I posted a video a while ago called Makeup Nightmares, where I showed everything you could possibly and definitely do wrong when applying makeup. If you missed that video, you can check it out here (link). Let me just briefly refresh your memory...

Ugh, yeaaaahhhhh um no. That look is simply not attractive on anyone. I decided to give this "look" - if you can call it that - another go, using a lot of the same products if possible, and apply the makeup in a way that is much more flattering and attractive.

Watch my tutorial with lots of tips on how to improve your application technique in general, and how to recreate this look on yourself! You can click here, or watch on Youtube:

Here's the lowdown of everything I showed in the video.

    Beautiful look! Love your nail colour as well.
    The glitter looks great done like that.
    An updated contour video and how to apply lashes would be great. Thanks Julia!

  5. The previous version looks ugly while the later version is much more attractive, sophisticated and refined. Loved it. <3

    What foundation do you use?

    This look is amazing. I love those colors. Especially on your eyes.

    I have also very fair skin and it would be very helpful if you do a tutorial on bronzing without looking like an alien or something like that.

    Dein Makeup ist wie immer super! Mir hat vor allem deine neue Augenbrauentechnik gefalle, denn ich habe sehr wenig Augenbrauen und habe meine bis jetzt nur mit dem Essence Eyebrow-Stift gemacht, was nicht wirklich gut aussieht. Wüsstest du vielleicht zufällig einen Shop in Wien wo man Kyrolan bekommt? (Ich will nicht für 2 Sachen im Internet bestellen :) )
    Danke schon mal!

  13. although i think this is a bit much unrealistic i love the 2nd look! very well put togethr <3


  14. Do you use anything on your eyelid before Manhattan Eyemazing Eyeshadow Pen? Base? Primer? Concealer?
