This last one was after dinner but you can see the shadows are still holding strong :)

This was my first time doing a voiceover tutorial. What do y'all think? Do you like voiceovers or would you rather I talk through the tutorial?



  1. Sexy eyes! :D I like your tutorials either way. Keep up the great work Stephie! <3

  2. You are so cute Stephie! Love the eyes! :) Glad you are back!! hehe.

  3. i love ur tutorial video!
    talk through tutorial is less hassle for you??:)

  4. I literally gasped when I noticed that you uploaded a new video ! (: You are my absolute favorite guru on youtube and since I am pretty new to make up, I am happy to say that everything I know about make up today, I learned through watching your videos (: I finally had the courage to comment on your blog >_<" hehe This is a really great tutorial and I will definitely try this look out ! To follow up on your question, I honestly prefer you speaking in your videos better but the voice over is great also ! Either way is fine (: P.S I loved the Mike bit in the video, SUPER hilarious haha Have a great day Stephie !

  5. I LOVE the look :)) !
    I laughed pretty hard when Mike stepped into the frame for a bit! haha~
    I nearly died though when you said "PLEASE, fill in your brows." hahahha :p Everything else was optional till then! haha
    I love watching your videos! you're gorgeous.

  6. Gorgeous! I love matte black smokey eyes!

  7. You look so beautiful! Modesty is a great your-lips-but-better shade.

  8. what a gorgeous smokey look!! the Tete-a-Tint is a great transition color.

    as for voiceover versus talking through the video, i actually prefer talking through the video, but either is ok with me.

    hooray for a new video too! :)

    cute & little

  9. Gorgeous smokey eyes!

  10. whats the lid color? i cant seem to find it over google, was it part of a palette or something? thanks!

  11. The lid color was part of a limited edition palette. However, Handwritten e/s can also be used on the lid. They're pretty similar in color. Hope this helps!
