Super Easy Fancy Makeup Look For A Wintery Lazy Day

When it's raining outside all day long, sometimes I don't feel like sitting down and doing my makeup for too long (like I usually do..). Especially if I'm not sure if it will last.. With all the rain.. and wind.. and... Uuuhhhh I miss summer!
Anyway :)
When I don't feel like doing my makeup, but I do want to look red carpet ready on a rainy day, it's always a good idea to throw on a dark vampy lip and call it a day! :) That's what I'm going to show you in today's video. A very simple and easy to create, quick, soft eye makeup, paired with a dark lip.
Because who said you can't look glamorous, even when you're lazy?! ;)

Easiest Eyeliner Technique EVER!

With practice comes experience.. And with my experience as a professional makeup artist, I have found the easiest method ever to create a winged (or not winged) liner. Without using liquid, or even gel liner (!)
You can always go over the with a liquid liner to create a more crisp looking liner. But I find, for me, that what I am showing in this video, is enough.
Grab a pencil liner and some eyeshadow, and watch the video below for step by step instructions! :)
Good luck!
