Soft smokey eye tutorial – Favorite Face of December 2015

If you have been around for a while now, you may have gotten used to my “Favorite Face of…” series. Of course I cant tell whether you are bored out of your mind or looking forward to my monthly makeup ramble, but I have been meaning to keep it up.

Now I have started this month with a yearly favorites, so the “Favorite Face of…” is a little late and probably does no longer count as “December Favorites”, which is why I named it “Tutorial” for the upload on You Tube.

Not very surprising it features a soft smokey eye, using browns and a hint of violet (I feel I have been wearing barely anything else this winter), paired with either a nude or a bolder lip.

You all know the disclaimers, I am no professional, just an enthusiastic amateur, both when it comes to makeup and to videos, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless.

I am not quite sure why the eyeshadow started looking that purple about halfway though the tutorial, so I included some pictures (taken with different lighting) and edited them into the video to show you the finished result.


What have you been wearing a lot?

Are you over the winter purple and smokey eyes already and craving spring makeup?
