Are your eyebrows microbladed?
Yes! Here’s a whole video on my experience
What do you use to prime your eyes?
I typically use a concealer (like Tarte shape tape) and I set that with a translucent powder.

I've been wearing makeup for years, but never kept up with current trends or many actual techniques.. and I have hooded eyes, which I didn't even figure out until a little while ago, LOL. so this is super life-changing to me. new subbie, for sure!

I love this tutorial.... the only thing is using a concealer on your eyelids causes your lids to become extremely oily. Eyelids are already naturally oily.... a lid primer is a much better choice

this was a video i definitely needed to watch. i’m a complete beginner at makeup, other than lipstick, gloss, mascara, and eyeliner, and i’m just getting into this now and i’m in my 30’s. i’m always fascinated by eyeshadow blending and ESP crease cuts. omg, they always look so beautiful. i’m so glad i clicked on this video because it just happened to be in my recommendations. i still haven’t invested in an eyeshadow brush set yet. i want to get sigma brushes because i’ve seen various people in the makeup world using them and speaking very highly of them, and i know that they’re cruelty-free, so that’s a plus. now i know which ones to get since the ones you used were perfect for everything you did in your tutorial that i realllly wanted and needed to learn. i’m happy there’s a lip brush, because i’m constantly misplacing or losing my lip brushes. thank you for this totally needed video. 💖
