I recently had a local event to attend with my husband and family. It was a charity comedy night, but to me it was more an excuse to dress up a little bit. I ended up creating a soft smoky makeup look and I filmed it for you all to watch. I finally found an angle in my new bedroom that I was kinda happy with, so I perched the camera and started filming. It’s been quite hard getting used to the new set up and mostly managing my time wisely, sometimes (a lot of the times) I feel pulled in so many directions, that my YouTube and blog end up being the biggest casualties. It’s fair to say I was quite proud I actually managed to film something for you!
So this look was sort of in between ‘I’m not making too much effort’, and ‘I am making a lot of effort’. I thought going with a thin line of liner, no contouring, no severe highlighting, I would look a little less try hard. Let me know if you think I managed to achieve that? Ooh I also tried out the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics eye shadow palette and it is fair to say I have fallen for it quite dramatically. It has the most beautiful packaging, and the shadows are so buttery and more importantly, all matte! It was so easy to create the soft smoky makeup look I was after.

I would love to know what you think of it, I’m using a different set up so would love to know if you think the quality is clear, if my face is close enough or too close even to camera, did I explain it properly to you? Basically I would really appreciate any feedback you may have. I hope you liked my soft smoky makeup look, and remember if you DID like it, please like the video and subscribe. Now, what shall I film next?
