This is not a tutorial...

Seriously, it's not.

1) I'm barely explaining what the heck I'm doing.

2) There are a brazillion tutorials already out there by people with more skill and better lighting.

Also, the video quality isn't the best...
This is just sort of... proof that I tried this. And it mostly worked. I went out in public with this makeup on my face and my friends (who like me enough to be honest) didn't tell me to go wash it off.

I love the look of the classic smokey eye, but I've never really been able to pull it off. This is actually the third tutorial I followed tonight, and the second one I filmed, and you know what... this is as good as it gets.

Super-secret eyebrow drawing technique learned from Christi Harris. Music is "Trip Like I Do" by The Crystal Method, remixed (ever-so-inexpertly by me). You know, I got my degree in Broadcast Journalism and my favorite classes were the video editing ones. Granted, this free program I downloaded after I took the video I thought was going to have no audio because the last time I tried to record with my webcam my microphone didn't work and though I've changed NOTHING about it, it now all of a sudden works... that program isn't as fancy-schmancy as the stuff I got to use in college, but I still had a pretty good time.

I generally just aim the makeup brush toward my eyeball and smear for a second like a 12 year old, so I admire anyone who actually applies technique to the process.

I have tried so many different ways, including yours... I think my eyes just like to take everything and turn it into raccoon face, sadly
