This week, it was a lot about the makeup. I really enjoyed this Sophia Loren makeup tutorial, a luxury makeup dupes video (who doesn’t love dupes?!) and an eyeshadow technique that makes your eyes look huuuuge (in a good way… and any eye size can pull it off). Let me know if you came across any new YouTubers or found any particularly helpful videos this week in the comments.
As mentioned in other ‘best ofs,‘ Lisa Eldridge is a celeb makeup artist and Creative Director for Lancome, so you know she knows what she’s doing when it comes to makeup. She recreated this amazing Sophia Loren makeup look on internet beauty sensation, Huda Kattan, who is known for her Instagram and fairly new false lash line that tons rave about. The finished result was stunning on her and fun to watch Lisa and Huda chat about makeup (from one beauty lover to another). What do you think of this look?
Tati’s another favorite of mine and she’s definitely been hitting up the super high end luxury brands lately in her “WTF” series, where she’s been testing out uber expensive brands to see if they’re worth the hype. She found quite a few great dupes (some $10 and under) for things $50+. Anything catch your eye? Tell me in the comments so I can check it out.
Ok, so I can’t really say if this is an ‘advanced’ technique (maybe it is… I’m not a pro trained MUA), but I know this is pretty much exactly the technique I’ve used for years to apply my shadow. Shimmer on the lid, mid tone in the crease… pulling out and the dark shade concentrated outer half and blend, blend, blend. I don’t know about you all, but his 03 and 05 brushes are calling my name hardcore. They look SO soft.
