Tutorial time again, loves! Trying to keep a balance of video and pictorials for you guys as well as a balance between supa’ bold and supa’ wearable so today’s look is going to be a really wearable, pretty look that’s appropriate for nearly every occasion and is really easy to pull off! I’m planning on my next eyeshadow tutorial being a really colorful, bold look so if that’s more up your alley, just hang in there because the plan is in action. 😉

Next I’m going in with in with Sugarpill’s Buttercupcake (yellow) and that same brush and basically placing it in the same area only not taking it quite as high this time.
