Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

It's glitter makeup season. And the whole point of glitter is to wear it unapologetically — but also avoid any sort of twee cheesiness by being strategic about how you apply it. In a new video tutorial, makeup artist Violette (a.k.a. the living embodiment of the Cool French Girl archetype) shows us all how it's done. "I'm kind of obsessed with glitter right now because the holidays are coming, so it's making me in the mood," Violette says in the video. And here's the best part: The look she creates isn't just stunning — it's also super easy, doesn't require brushes and takes only a few minutes. 

"Makeup is fun, makeup is almost therapeutic. Like, if you're feeling down or are not in a good mood, wear glitter and you'll see that something is going to change inside of you," says Violette. You can watch the full video (and see every product she used to create the look) here:
