Next make up & The Magpie Girl: Smokey Eye.

Sunday, August 05, 2012

When Next contacted me about doing a make up video with their new make up collection, I thought it sounded like such fun! But like most things I agree to on the spur of the moment cos they sound 'fun' I didnt really think it through! Like where am I going to film it, how am I going to film it, Ive never been a massive youtube follower so I hadnt picked up any tips along the way from watching make up gurus online. Anyways I gave it a try and am quite pleased with result. I was asked to create a smokey eye look & here is how I did it...
