Tutorial | Smoked Lavender

Hey guys! Happy, happy Sunday! This is strange for me because I usually never post on the weekends but I haven't got work to do (for once) and something exciting to share so I thought, why not? Live dangerously and all that jazz, yeah? Haha! Anywhos, I was thinking of a tutorial to do for my YouTube channel and wanted to do something exciting for spring, but not something bright. So I went straight to a smoky eye but I wanted to make it a bit different and more spring like. Since spring is all about bringing out our 'pops of color' I decided to create a smoky eye with a pop of color. Pretty straightforward thinking, right? This tutorial is what I came up with! I used deep browns to keep the smoky eye from getting to harsh and lavender as my pop of color! I don't know why I've been so drawn to wearing variations of purples this year, but I'm loving it! I'm actually super happy with that way the eyes turned out! I've never been comfortable with smoking out my eye looks but I think I did a pretty good job (if I do say so myself!) If you'd like to see how I created this look, the tutorial is right down below. I'd totally appreciate you taking the time to watch and give me some feedback. Let me know what you think!
