Dear Cally, Eyeshadow?!?
My very first follower (who was not a member of my immediate family), Jenny Bradley, asked me a question:
Cally! How do I apply eyeshadow? I don’t get it when the magazines have those diagrams - I can’t tell what face shape I have, let alone eye shape. Then hair and eye color comes into play? What if I dye my hair? How do I look like a fun party girl ready for anything with some color above her lids as opposed to looking like someone, who if they had a 5 year old niece, let said niece apply makeup on their face? It boggles my mind.
I will now attempt to unboggle your mind because once you get the hang of it, eyeshadow is so fun! It’s like finger painting, except you don’t have to wear a smock. I made you this very poorly lit video to show you an easy way to get started and after you practice a little, go nuts! Get some turquoise and gold and neon purple and glitter and put it all on at the same time and it will be awesome and send me a picture.
Now…BRACE YOURSELF because my voice is so high it’s stupid. Enjoy!
Oops! I forgot about the very abrupt ending…my bad! You get the idea though, right?
I hope this helps! Please email me with any other questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
