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 no longer February, which means it's not really winter anymore (despite what high winds and still-pretty-cold-temps might lead you to believe). So with that in mind, why not go for a cheerful, spring-y beauty look? Makeup artist Violette's "nude rose" tutorial strikes just the right seasonal-transition chord, and we can't wait to try it out this weekend.
In the video, the makeup artist, who normally can be spotted pulling off elaborate techniques in the back of a moving cab, looks comfy and relaxed at home as she creates a subtle look full of blush-pink tones. "It's a very homey look; when I do a very natural look like this, I always start with healthy skin care," she says, just before putting on a lip mask to prep for the lip color she'll be applying after.
Watch the full video below to see exactly how Violette achieves spring-y makeup perfection.
