Make Up Tutorial First Attempt!

If you're anything like me, a lot of you probably watch make up tutorials on YouTube. I spend waaayyyy too much time watching them and trying out looks, and I thought that, as I quite enjoy making vlogs, I'd attempt one myself. I'm no make up expert by any means, but it's sometimes nice to see that normal, non-make up artists can recreate looks too, so I've filmed my first tutorial.

The look I've done a tutorial for is this Dakota Fanning ELLE UK cover:
Dakota Fanning ELLE UK February 2012 subscriber cover

Kirsty posted the image on her blog Forty Four Sunsets and I loved the make up, so I decided to attempt it for myself.

Here's my video - let me know what you think!


If you liked it and think I should do some more tutorials let me know. If you think it's terrible and I should never go near make up again, let me know too (but be nice and tactful about it please!)

  3. Great tutorial!
    I'd love to see a photo of the finished look on you, just because the quality in the video isn't as high as a photo would be, otherwise I love the look!

  4. Lovely look, the lips really suit you, I can't really carry red off myself. I'm amazed at how long your lashes are!! Definately up for more vlogs!

  5. You did such a great job. Definitely do more. I think you should include a picture with the video so we can see the finished look clearer. But you were really natural in front of the camera. I know I would be terrible! x

    1. Thanks :) I'll definitely do a picture of the finished look next time. I ran out of light for this one though, damn these short winter days!

      It's not cheap, but it's amazing and I've had mine for months now and it hasn't dried up at all. It's also really good over the top of volumising mascaras if you need to separate your lashes out.

  7. I haven't managed to buy that Elle yet, but the first thing I thought when I saw it was 'Oh my word, the make up is DIVINE.' And then lo and behold this video appears! Also, thinking back to your first MAC post, when you had no eyeshadows, and now you have a full palette! Makes me laugh, since I know the curse of those palettes- you can't help but fill them up! I'm currently on about 9 shadows, which isn't too bad, but the temptation is always there to buy MORE, but I must resist! Especially since I did far too much sale shopping :( I think this was a great video but perhaps you could do with slightly better lighting, but as we all know at this time of the year its a bloody nightmare finding some damn sun!

    1. I bought far too many MAC shadows in Austria out of sheer boredom! I'm so tempted to start a second palette now, and try and replicate my favourite colours from other brands, even though that's a complete waste of money, just because I love how neat and lovely a full MAC palette looks!

  8. The tutorial was amazing, you should definitely make some more! The HD Brows kit is literally my fav thing ever, the taupe-y brown is my everyday brow filling in godsend and they make very pigmented eyeshadows! x
