Teen Week: Easy, Flirty Evening Look

 
  
  
  
The goal of this look was to create a really simple but effective smokey eye that isn't too dark and dramatic, and that is easy to achieve using just 2 eyeshadows and a minimal set of basic eye brushes. I know many teens do not have a large makeup collection and just have the basics when getting started, so I wanted to show that even with some basic skills and products, it's still possible to achieve a nice smokey eye look. This look would be perfect for going out in the evening with friends to a movie, or on a date! I hope you enjoy the final installment in my teen makeup series!

    I kind of missed the hip-hop and goth looks. Although I don't know if any of that is still going on where some of you live (Where I live it's still alive and kickin')

    I would request a punk look but that, I know, is not in its best moment. (Sadly)

    However, all in all and statistically speaking, impeccable selection!

  18. I haven't been a teen since almost ten years but I really liked your teen videos. I'm having much fun lately with bright colors and dramatic looks, and it's been great seing simple yet sophisticated looks. I tried your Preppy/Blair Waldorf one the other day, it was very flattering.

    Hallo, liebe Julia!

    Der Look sieht wieder einmal traumhaft aus! Wollte dich fragen, ob es den Bronzer von Barry M in nur EINER Nuance gibt oder gibt es mehrere Farben davon? Er sieht übrigens toll aus an dir!
