Five Excellent Eye Makeup Tutorials


It’s not always as simple as sitting down at your vanity or standing in front of the mirror and doing your eye makeup just as you envision. Women everywhere have moments where they don’t know how to produce the makeup look they are striving for. Sometimes, a girl needs a little assistance.

Doing eye makeup can be tricky, in both senses of the word – it can be difficult AND there are tricks to help us. Luckily for us, beauty tutorials run rampant on the internet. Skilled beauty professionals and regular gals with talents for makeup can help show us the way. Here are a few of the best eye makeup tutorials around.

1) Michelle Phan is what you would call a Youtube celebrity, especially since starring in a major advertising campaign for the site. She is a complete makeup chameleon and is beyond brilliant, turning herself into everything from a “Spanish Rose,” Daenerys Targaryen, Lady Gaga, or even a seductive vampire or “Zombie Barbie.” For a particularly stunning eye makeup tutorial, look to Phan’s “Gatsby 1920s Flapper Girl” video. The dark shadow is beyond glamorous and perfect for any big night out and pairs perfectly with the subtle pink lip and flawless skin Phan teaches.
