How to Wear Eyeliner as Eyeshadow

This is something I’ve done since I started wearing makeup. I think it’s an easy way to get a professional looking eye with very little work. Try it at home with your favorite gel liners! For more drama try black smudged out with a pop of shimmer in the center. Don’t forget to blend your edges!

Makeup Mystery Theatre Episode 2: Concert Makeup!

I love these MMT videos because you’re in for the surprise along with me. When you’ve been doing makeup as long as I have or get to the point of owning as much makeup as I do, it almost makes it harder to plan out looks because there are so many choices! It’s like trying to order something at the Cheesecake factory.

Once I turn my camera on, all bets are off. I like the way this look turned out, I got tons of compliments that day and it was great seeing some old friends that night, I felt like a rockstar.
