YouTube Makeup Mania
Not long ago little girls and their mothers would telephone their trusted Mary Kay ladies or their Avon reps to find out how to master the latest beauty trends. With the invention of the internet, however, MK and Avon have become nearly obsolete. Enter: YouTube. Everyone from twelve-year-old tweenies to fifty-year-old career women are heading to the Tube to find out what’s hot and what’s not. More importantly, they’re searching for videos that demonstrate how to conquer the popular deep burgundy lip or how to perfect the classic cat eye. Here are a few of the hottest do-it-yourself videos we’ve selected for you and your friends. Gather ’round and check them out.
Futuristic Cat Eye
Add a little shock-value into your standby cat eye and you’ll be sure to make ‘em purr. Topshop has the tutorial for you with Topshop: Core Midnight Eye. (For the toned-down classic, visit celebrity makeup artist Kandee Johnson. We’re obsessed with her!)
Punch up your pretty pout with goth-like shades of purple. Are you nervous it’s a bit much for your modest makeup skills? No worries! Test drive the look at home while watching Lisa Eldridge: Dark Lipsticks.
Grab the essence of your favorite supermodel with ReLook TV: Kate Moss. This is the first of four videos to effortlessly transition you from Day Kate to Naughty Night Kate.
Forget those wimpy brows of yesteryear. Step in line behind Balenciaga, The Row, Gucci, and Valentino for a strong, healthy arch that spotlights the eye and livens up your visage. (Think Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon, but don’t admit you secretly love that movie.) Go to MAC Cosmetics: Power Brows to learn the know-how.
