I’m so excited to finally share my first YouTube makeup tutorial with you!! Y’all have been asking to see tutorials and videos from me on how I do my hair and makeup. While I do have full tutorials in the works, I figured rolling out a simple eye shadow how-to would be perfect just in time for the New Year! Today, I’ll be talking all about my new favorite eye shadow palette from Nordstrom.
Before we get started, I want to let you know that I am no makeup professional. I just know a few tricks that work well for me that I’ve adopted from professionals and friends over the years. I’m also not trying to be a makeup artist by any stretch of the imagination. I just simply want to share what my favorite eye shadow products are and how I use them each day.
About a year ago, I bought makeup from Lancome at Nordstrom. I was trying one of their new mascaras and received a free gift with purchase. In this gift was the most perfect eye shadow palette. It was a small travel size but all the colors were perfect for creating a subtle smoky eye. Needless to say, I use this palette every day until it was gone! I went back to Nordstrom to buy the palette in a full size but the color option wasn’t available. As in none of the options were even close to the shades I had been using. You can guess my level of sadness at this point!
A few months went by and I found a few other palettes that I liked and that did the job but none of them were exactly like the Lancome palette I’d previously used. But then it happened! I was shopping at Nordstrom with my mother in law earlier this month and she was looking at different makeup. Our Nordstrom at Perimeter Mall just had a huge makeup revamp and it’s amazing!! They literally have every kind of makeup and beauty product you could ever need! So as I’m browsing the Lacome palettes, I see a color option that is basically identical to the little palette I loved! I made the purchase and have been wearing it everyday since!
You guys have been asking me non stop about how to apply this palette for the perfect daytime smoky eye. I wanted to do something a little more permanent than an Instagram Story so I figured I would put my new camera to use and record a video!! I hope you like it!!
***Disclaimer*** I referred to the palette as Estee Lauder when it’s actually Lancome Beige Brulee.
Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts! I would also love to know what other videos you want to see next!
Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring today’s blog post! As always, all opinions are my own!
