Making video tutorials is one of the most requested thing you ask from me. And even though it’s definitely a challenge for me, I’m trying to film something every once in a while.

This time I did a tutorial on the makeup trick that I use daily for my eye shape. So now you can see exactly how I apply eyeshadow on my deep set/hooded eyes.

I have to say, I did enjoy making this video a bit. And I learned a lot! I think when it comes to videos you just need to start doing them and learn as you go. Here’s to hoping my next video will be even better!

About the makeup

I love this makeup look, even if I say so myself. I think it happens every spring – I fall in love with pink colors. I used earthy natural tones in this look, but I made it more fun by adding some pink on my lower lashline and on my ‘crease’. I used the NYX Perfect Filter* palette in the shade Golden Hour. It’s one of my go-to palettes with easy colors. The pink color I used was actually Milani’s Baked Blush in the shade Pink Delizioso*.

    I wish I’d seen this decades ago! I have exactly the same eye shape – downturned and hooded. I tend to do an elevated liner on the mobile lid to get a cat’s eye shape but this is much more effective. Also solves the problem of shadow inevitably transferring to the hood.
    Seriously the most helpful technique I’ve ever seen for my eye shape. Thank you 🙂
