I am pleased to have posted my FIRST youtube "how-to" video tonight and to compliment my video, below you will find an INTERACTIVE photo. Yes, that is right, I-N-T-E-R-A-C-T-I-V-E!! Feel free to click on the points on the photo for product information. You even have the option to click on the social media icons on the bottom left hand corner of the photo and be directed to my social media pages. I am SUPER excited for this new adventure!

Get the Look: Sultry Arabic Eyes

I wanted to try something a little different with the way I presented which products I used to achieve the look of the day.  I am a very visual person and thought it would be a neat idea to make a collage of all the products used to create the look.  Being a big fan of design and inspiration boards,  I would like to think of this collage as an inspiration board in itself. 

The look I created today was fun, sexy, and sultry.  I usually don't plan the eye makeup I will be doing, and I like to see where my creativity, and the colors take me.  Today's look speaks for itself!

I highly recommend this amazing product for anyone who likes to wear a dark eye and wants to minimize any fall out!
