Bonjour! My first make up video is complete. I have to say it's a tad funny to watch yourself apply your own makeup. I've been asked countless times to create one of these tutorials but to be honest am a bit camera shy (and slightly awkward) but I decided to give it a whirl regardless. I also thought it would be the perfect opportunity to send in this video for an amazing contest that is happening with MAKE UP FOR EVER (one of my favourite make up brands I must add). For the make up look I decided to keep things simple as I wanted to do something that others could, themselves, easily do at home with products they already have. I love using liquid liner and the lashes just add that extra "glam". I completed the look with a bit of definition using a matte bronzer and a nude/light pink lip. I love this look and hope you love it just the same. Merci et bonne chance at tous! 

See the video here and the steps below.

1 | MAC foundation & Revlon mixed together and applied using the MAKE UP FOR EVER "152" brush.

2 | Anastasia eyebrow duo (used darker shade) and applied with Anastasia brow brush. Use small brush strokes to create hair like effect. Brush out when complete.

3 | NARS concealer stick in shade "pear" used on the inner corner of the eye, around nose, down the middle of the nose and up in the middle or the forehead as well as in the middle of the chin. Also make a line from the bottom outer corners of the nose up into the hair line. Shades with yellow tones conceal better. Blend everything with a brush like this one or the beauty blender. I used both!

4 | Apply the shade "naked" from Naked palette 1 to the crease of your eyelid with the MAKE UP FOR EVER "218" brush. Wipe off any extra product and use the same brush to apply a lighter shade to the brow bone. I used "virgin" from the same palette.

5 | I like to apply my lashes before I complete the remaining of my eye make up. I curled my eyelashes using a lash curler, hold on each side for a few seconds. I used MAKE UP FOR EVER false full lash strips "23 " and applied with the glue that came with it. Apply the glue directly to the lashes and let dry a few seconds. Apply directly to lash line using your fingers, tweezers or the end of the MAKE UP FOR EVER brushes to secure them in place.

6 | Apply black liquid liner to the lash line creating a cat eye effect. Begin by drawing a line at the outer corner of the eye and a line from the inner corner, connecting both lines. Fill in the rest. I used Stila stay all day liquid liner pen in "Jet Black".

7 | Apply a black shadow to the outer corner of the eye only. I used Chanel Les Quatre Ombres in the black shade. I used the MAKE UP FOR EVER brush in "218". I also applied a small amount of the lights shade in the inner corner of the eye, from the same palette.

8 | Using a big powder brush apply a matte bronzer to the temples, under cheek bones, along the jawline. Use a smaller flatter brush to apply the same bronzer along the outer sides of the nose and at the tip. Avoid the middle!

9 | Using the beauty blender, dab the larger end in the cream blush. I used MAKE UP FOR EVER HD blush in the shade "215". Dab in the apples of the cheek and blend a bit of colour towards hairline. This blush is awesome!! love the colour.

10 | Apply a nude or light pink lip colour of your choice. I used Maybelline lipstick in shade "910" as well as Revlon Colorburst in shade "065" over top. You can use a lip brush if you prefer, for lighter shades I simply apply right from the tube.

11 | Reapply a bit of concealer if needed. Apply a finishing spray or powder if needed. I typically use this spray by MAKE UP FOR EVER or this powder by lush.

12 | Apply one coat of mascara of your choice. I used Covergirl lash blast in black. One coat for my upper and lower lashes.

Tip |  Don't forget to wash your lashes when you are done as you can use them again.
