Safe For Work Smoky Eye Tutorial

Several people have been asking me to do makeup tutorials. I haven't done them in the past because I'm no makeup artist and because I'm not great on camera. Turns out, I am very good at saying "um". If you're so inclined, this doubles as a drinking game. But since several of you asked for a tutorial nicely, I thought I would give it a try. In this video, I'll show you how to do a really easy smoky eye that is totally SFW. I'll also share my new favorite way to apply blush (with a sponge!) as well as what the new Buxom mascara actually does that makes it different. I apologize in advance for this being so long. It's the thing I hate most about web makeup videos and I went and did the exact same thing. Feel free to fast forward (unless you're using it as a drinking game). Check out below for links to the products used in the video.
