FOTD Friday: Neutral Eyes, Poppin’ Lip via tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all It’s been a super long week. But I can’t wait for the weekend because I’ll be visiting my Goddaughter aaaaand heading to Miami for some weekend fun. I’ve really been itching to go to Atlanta for a few weeks not but uh…a sista needs some sun. Not snow. Know what I’m sayin’?

Lately, my YouTube family has been asking me to do tutorials. No bueno! While I enjoy watching some of the beauty tutorials on YouTube, actually DOING them is quite the challenge. You have to take so many things into consideration. Liiiiike….

-Am I talking too loudly?
-Am I boring?
-Am I being too silly?
-Am I talking too fast?
-Did I say “like”, “um”, “totally” too many times?
-Is the camera focusing?
-Is the lighting okay?
-Is the TuPac playing in the background too loud?

Hmm mm…all of that. It ain’t a easy job. And how regular YouTube beauty gurus do it, I’ll never know. But I tried. And here it is…

This tutorial focuses on achieving a pretty simply eye with a hot and poppin’ lip. I used..

MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45
MAC Sweet As Cocoa blush
Cargo blush in Lyon

MAC Paint in Bamboo (base)
Cargo Bronzer in medium (lid)
MAC Handwritten e/s (outer-V)
NARS Edie (between crease and brow)
Coastal Scents Matte white e/s
MAC Espresso e/s (deepens crease)

Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero
Stila’s waterproof liquid eye liner
Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara

Oyin Handmade Honeystick
NYC Cosmetics lipstick in Lyon
MAC Vino lipliner
MAC Funtabulous Dazzleglass

Such an easy look to achieve for even the most newbie-esque lady.  What do you think? What lippie do you use when you want a poppin’ lip?

Follow me on Twitter…I’ll be tweeting pretty Miami stuffs all weekend. 

Love y’all!
