Video: Neutral Smokey Eye for Valentines Day!

Decided to do another video, yes another one. I don't know, I'm just really enjoying filming them in the morning and then editing them in the afternoon. Anyway today I decided to do a 'sultry' looking brown smokey look for Valentines day, whit whoo!
I went for really warm eyeshadows on the eye, with matte browns in the crease, I then used a gel eyeliner along the lash line and then smudged it to further smoke the look out!
I wanted the face makeup to be full coverage, cause when it comes to a smokey eye you want your skin to look perfected otherwise you can end up looking tired otherwise. I also wanted to go really simple on the cheeks with just a little bronzer to sculpt and warm up my complexion a bit and a hint of colour on the cheeks with the blush. Finally I went for a matte nude lip to tie the whole thing together!
