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.
"Lots of the products that I've been trying out recently have either been glossy or glittery or shiny or quite highlighter-y; sort of appealing to the magpie in me," says Lisa Eldridge at the beginning of her new "Spring Bling" YouTube tutorial. "So this is a kind of spring look with a bit of bling." To create the look, a more-is-more glittery eye with petal-pink lips, groomed brows and flushed cheeks, Eldridge uses a selection of new-for-the-season products.
After evening out her skin tone with foundation, concealer and powder, Eldridge starts in on a peachy-bronze smoky eye. She then fills in her brows with a deep brown pencil (to contrast the soft hues of the rest of the look), adds black mascara, powder blush, glimmery highlighter and a creamy pink lipstick. Then comes the true bling, a glittery gel eye shadow (Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow) that Eldridge layers over the power base she's already created. To see every step in the process, watch the full video below.
