Today I am releasing my very first video tutorial 'ever'. I'm sure I will look back at this in a few years and chuckle because I am definitely 'learning as I go'. However, I have a 'very' good teacher- my dear friend Caryn is teaching me the ropes of video editing and I am endeavoring to be a good little teachable student. :)
A few words about eyeshadow blending:
- A good rule of thumb when blending is to 'pat' the eyeshadow onto the eye before sweeping it back & forth. When you start with patting you are ensuring that the area is covered and concentrated with the eye color. This makes blending much easier and gives you great pigment.
- Always tap the excess shadow off of your brush before applying the color to the eye. Otherwise you will inevitably get shadow powder under your eyes. This can be 'super' annoying, especially if it's a dark color.
- Once you've finished creating an eye look, use a large blending brush and go over the entire eye with a back & forth sweeping motion. This will give you that 'makeup artist' flawless finish that you see in magazines.
