    It was awesome seeing the layout of the eyeshadow, it was like creating art with all the steps. The face defining steps were good because you could really see the difference

    For me, using the brush to blend the eyeshadow colors was most helpful–I always had a problem with eyeshadow looking awkward cause I didn’t blend :p

    The tip that was the best for me personally was to use a bronzer to contour your face. Love it and will definitley be doing it from now on!

    One of my favorite tips was to use eye primer–I’ve found that by using it, it really does make your makeup on your eyes stay on for so much longer than normal!

    One of my favorite makeup tips is to use a flat top kabuki brush to give a flawless finish. I usually just use my fingers because i thought that was the best way but minette’s finish showed it is flawless. A tip i would like to share is to use a q-tip to wipe of excess on waterline then apply the eyeliner, it keeps the eyeliner to last way longer.

    I love the advice of using a blending brush to erase all crease lines. I’m a beginner on make up and this really helps! Thanks for your videos I love them and they are really helpful! Never quit making these videos and I’m a great fan of you! Great job. :)
