Tutorial: Tone in Tone Makeup

Hello everyone! I've been majorly MIA from this blog, I apologize. I have, however, been really busy with moving house, which I vlogged about here, and I've also been posting a lot on my Vlog channel TheThirdShift, so you may want to check that out here if you're not up to date.

But anyway, on to today's makeup tutorial. I've been loving this understated, tone-in-tone look, which I've been wearing a variation of for years. Sometimes I'll combine the eyes with a bold lip, for example a really bright color, but today I opted for a neutral caramel tone on the lips.

Watch my tutorial below to see how I did this look!
