I blogged about Xteeener’s YouTube videos awhile back. I haven’t done any intense research on make-up gurus on YouTube or anything. Maybe because I found Xteeener and I love her, so I never looked elsewhere? I feel like her tutorials are very user friendly and she favors a natural look. She also features affordable products, in fact, most are drug store finds! I love that. Her videos have really helped me wade a sea of crap make-up to find effective products, and achieve the look(s) I am going for.
Recently she posted this video that I think a lot of you ladies might find useful. She created an every day look in about ten minutes. I estimate that I spend about fifteen minutes every morning doing my make-up, but I don’t make great use out of that time. I wouldn’t describe my look as polished, and I rarely wear eye make-up (even though I kinda need it. Damn you, disappearing Japanese eyes).
I tried following her tutorial one morning, and really enjoyed challenging myself to re-create her simple day time look. I failed the timing part and took thirteen minutes, but I looked more put together than I usually do. Also, I need to find a nude eye pencil ASAP! My wedding day make-up artist used the nude liner trick, and it really brightened up my eyes.
How long do you spend doing your make-up in the morning?
