NYX Daytime Bright Eyes

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial.  This is the look I wore in my H&M haul video a few weeks back.  I finally got around to uploading it.  The look features NYX Cosmetics which is a really great, affordable line.  I've been meaning to do a tutorial featuring them for a while so better late than never.  The look is super wearable yet bright and fun at the same time.

The key to this look is keeping the color low on the lid.  That way, you can rock the bright colors and have it be a little more daytime appropriate.  The NYX St. Lucia Palette is super fun and bright and I like all of the colors in there except for the yellow, which can be a bit chalky. Overall, NYX is a really awesome line that keeps getting better and better.  Recently, I picked up a whole bunch of items at an ULTA sale.  They're definitely worth checking out.

The final look!
