In this video I’m sharing some of my best eyeliner hacks, tips & tricks for mastering winged eyeliner! Eyeliner is one of the most popular elements of makeup, yet it’s something that can be difficult to master. Whether you’re wanting a really natural look or a dramatic smoked out liner, I show you how to use 1 eyeliner to create 4 different popular eyeliner styles!

There’s a look for everyone, and I break it down step by step to show you how to create each look, and correct any mistakes!

There’s a soft, natural look, 2 variations on the classic cat eye, and more of a smoked out liner!

I won’t blab too much in the description here, as I’ve already done two blog posts on this topic, but I thought I’d put together a relatively quick video on some tips for back to school beauty!

I graduated last June, and have learned quite a lot about myself and my interests in the last year. This past year has been a year of discovery for me, in which I have learned that my true passion lies in blogging and beauty.

I wish that I could invent a time machine, and travel back to my high school days to teach myself some other (and much easier) methods of doing my makeup.

I also wish that I could tell myself not to freak out over truly insignificant things-because in reality, they just didn’t matter as much as I thought they did.

What I wore in high school or how I looked has in no way affected my life. It is in no way a representation of who am I today, and I truly wish that I could tell my past-self to stop the self-hate, and to just enjoy those 3 (or 4, for some schools) years of my life.

In my awkward camera-shyness, I completely forgot to mention the beauty of oil-blotting wipes. I did, however, mention these in my blog posts. Anyways, if you’d like to check out my previous posts in which I discuss my recommendations/tips in detail, please check them out!
