Aha!! YouTube finally made way for my video to come rolling right in (after almost a dozen tries) and I’d like to present my very first video tutorial embedded at the bottom of this post in which I demonstrate how I apply gel eyeliner, no tomatoes please. This also serves as a review slash product comparison for Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (whew) and Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. A few lovely blogger friends have been requesting that I post a video on how I do my eyeliner so finally here it is with a bit of initial reluctance. I am admittedly a bit of a goofball when it comes to being in front of the camera, so you’ll have to forgive me and my point and shoot cam kind of has a subtle lens distortion that makes my face bulge in the center, so I look obviously different in person . Next time I’ll be more composed and organized plus will have better lit and clear surroundings.. This photo by the way was taken late last year but I am using the same method and product as in the video so it’s perfect as one of the introductory images for what you are about to watch, however please pardon the slightly rough edge in the photo I used a different brush to apply, I nearly got the same result but I prefer the brush I used in my video which is the Make Up For Ever 2S Brush.
Yea, yea I know, enough stalling (YouTube’s done quite enough of that) and onto the video. Please…please…be kind *covers face*, I’m usually working on videos and not in them so I’m heaps of bashful right now, okay.
