Kim Kardashian West’s makeup look for the recent 2018 Met Gala was my absolute favourite look – I know everyone has been obsessing over it and recreating it, but I simply couldn’t resist – as soon as I saw it I knew I needed to create a tutorial for a look inspired by this makeup! It’s a sexy smoked out cat eye, and I can guarantee it will instantly make you feel 10x more fierce.

For my second prom/grad/special event tutorial, I wanted to do something a bit different than what I’m used to. Something a bit darker, edgier, and cooler-toned. I went for a silver, sparkly, smokey halo eye, paired with a light nude-pink lip.
With a look like this, in order to keep it still looking soft and classy, I think it’s important to pick your main focus. For this look, the eyes are definitely the focus, so I wanted to keep the face and lips a bit more subdued.

I took a break from youtube for a while, due to school and work and what not. The idea of making a tutorial was terrifying, and I think that’s perhaps why I put it off for so long. But I really do love making videos, so I decided to just give it a try and see where it goes.
For my first ever youtube tutorial, I thought I would do one of my favourite eye looks. This look is kind of a shimmery smokey-style eye with a sharp crease that is inspired by a cut crease but blended more softly.
I wear this look a lot at work for makeup galas and special occasions, and have gotten quite a few requests to make a tutorial on it!
Since it’s graduation/prom season, I figured that my first youtube tutorial should be more of a special occasion look.

The boutique that I work at recently hosted another beauty gala! This gala was a big makeup and nail event to support the LGFB (Look Good Feel Better) association for women battling cancer. We had a lovely nail technician come in to do manicures, and all the proceeds from the manicure appointments and tickets, and goodie bags were donated.
We had reps from different brands come in for demonstrations and makeovers, and I got to meet so many wonderful people.
I also got the opportunity to do makeup on my aunt for a wedding!
We went for a brown and gold smokey eye, a thin cat eye, and soft pink lips!

To get into the spirit of spring, the Beauty Boutique that I work at had a big spring gala! We had music, snacks, makeovers and facials, as well as representatives and makeup artists from different brands! The energy in the store was incredible, and I got the chance to do makeup on some wonderful ladies!
It was exceptionally busy, so unfortunately I didn’t have time to take as many pictures as I had hoped, but I did manage to take a few quick pics!
Here are a couple of the makeup looks I did, on two different age groups:
The first look was a smokey eye with purple tones, a soft face, and pink lips. We kept the face as natural as possible as the client is very young and has such naturally gorgeous skin. The second look was a brighter eye with brown (although it looks rather silver in the photo) definition in the crease, and coral lips.
For my makeup, I wanted to something a bit more fun and dramatic than my typical look. I did a brown smokey eye with gold glitter.
I will be doing a tutorial on this look soon!
It was such a good experience, and it felt so good to do makeup again on other people!
If I wasn’t in the mood for spring before, I most definitely am now! Bring on the pastels, corals, pinks, and flowers!
