Happy Monday! I’m back with another makeup tutorial – this is my everyday go-to makeup look, and the best part is: I only used 1 eyeshadow palette. I also show you 2 lip options at the end of the video – 1 wearable lippie, and 1 bold lippie. Thinking about it now, both options are liquid lipsticks from the drugstore! So many of you have asked me to feature a couple of liquid lipsticks from the drugstore on the blog, so your requests must have been in the back of my mind when I picked the lip products.
The lighting in this video is a bit all over the place, I filmed it later in the day using natural light (so the sunshine kept changing). As mentioned here on the blog a while ago – I bought studio lights and have set up a proper filming room, but the artificial light situation is a total nightmare for me at the moment. I’ve been trying to play around with my camera settings, and the positioning of the lights…but I’m still not 100% happy. So until I’m completely happy with the footage using studio lights, I’ll be filming during the day again. I hope you enjoy the video!
Please note: I listed all the makeup brushes I used on the screen while I’m using them. I also linked to additional review blog posts of some of the products featured in the video, in the ‘Show More’ section of the video.
