First Impressions GRWM + Purple Smokey Eye Tutorial

Happy #BEAUTYMONDAY! I ran a poll last week asking whether or not you guys wanted to see more Youtube challenges / tags or more first impressions / tutorials and first impressions / tutorials won by quite a bit – so I’m back at it today with a first impressions GRWM + purple smokey eye tutorial! I am using ALL new products and testing them out on camera for you and I LOVE how this look turned out. It’s both sultry and wearable – and that pop of teal is EVERYTHING for summer. To check out which products I am totally obsessed with now, and which products I could do without for probably ever – watch the video below!

First Impressions GRWM + Purple Smokey Eye Tutorial

This was such a fun video to film – I love doing tutorials, and I love using color. I am the WORST at getting caught in neutral makeup ruts when I’m not filming and I am totally working on being better at that. I am literally COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS until my next #100daysofmakeup challenge (that starts July 23rd, btw). It was SUCH a success last year – and I cannot wait to do it again this year.
