I actually admire “dos and don’ts” movies, like this one from make-up artist Jackie Aina. Solely listening to somebody inform you “Don’t do xyz” isn’t as efficient for viewers as “Don’t do xyz, as a result of it’ll seem like this.” On this video, Aina creates a wonderful make-up look on her left eye however demonstrates frequent errors on her proper. (She additionally acknowledges the assorted eye shapes that viewers might have, which is a pleasant change from a number of YouTubers who appear to imagine that everybody seems to be like them.) Aina introduces this as a newbie video, so she retains it comparatively easy. 

I discovered make-up artist Wayne Goss’s tutorials via a YouTube search just a few years in the past, and I’ve bookmarked just a few of his movies. Sure, this one has a super-clickbaity title (clearly it labored, as a result of it has 12 million views), however don’t let that put you off. Though Goss notes that he’s certainly not the primary to consider making use of eyeliner with a lash roller, I do know I’d by no means have thought to do it myself. 

I actually like movies during which the YouTuber applies make-up to 1 eye at a time somewhat than doing a bit of 1, then a little bit of the opposite till they’re each completed. Seeing a “earlier than” and “after” on somebody’s face on the identical time actually highlights the impact that’s been created. However as a result of hair and make-up artist Tina Yong makes use of her favourite merchandise to finish certainly one of her eyebrows first, technically this video must be known as “Good Eyebrows in SIX Minutes,” as a result of she does the second forehead off digicam. It’s nonetheless a fantastic video to take a look at, although! 

In the event you’re like me, your typical mascara utility “course of” is to hurriedly swipe some onto your prime lashes and … that’s it. Let’s name it, er, minimalism? If you wish to go additional (primer, eyelash roller, and so on.), try this video for particular ideas and methods from a Sephora Assortment Training Artist. (In the event you’re not a fan of Sephora-brand merchandise, simply ignore the product recs, after all.) I actually like this make-up artist’s persona — she chats with the mannequin as a substitute of utilizing her as a prop, and he or she’s actually enthusiastic. (She exclaims, “Lashes is my life!” at one level.)

This video from make-up artist and Lancôme International Inventive Director Lisa Eldridge could be very thorough, so it’s longer than these above, however she doesn’t particularly discuss eye make-up till a few minutes in. (She begins with recommendations on stopping your glasses from rubbing make-up off of your nostril.) Eldridge gives methods for each nearsighted individuals, whose glasses make their eyes look smaller, and farsighted individuals, whose glasses amplify their eyes — so as to see each on her face on the identical time.

(Psst: right here’s tips on how to cease your eyeglasses from fogging up whereas carrying a masks from the Cleveland Clinic.)
