Makeup Tutorial: Aveda Smokey Jewel Tone Eyes

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video tutorial!  Halloween is far from over, so it's about time that I post a good old, wearable makeup tutorial, lol.  You recently saw my recent FOTD featuring Aveda.  Today I went for a dramatic, jewel toned look featuring many of the vibrant colors from the collection.  If you like deep, smokey eyes with color, this one is for you!

Check out the video!


The great thing about these shadows is that the finish is a mix between satin and subtle shimmer.  As a result, I didn't find the need to find other mattes and shimmers to mix in with the look, since these colors all blend together so well.

The final look!


FYI, sorry if the picture quality is not great.   My Sony CyberShot that I bought in June takes really bad pictures but great video...but now it's not working at all.  I'll hopefully be getting a new camera for Christmas :)

Here's What I Used (All Aveda Products Unless Mentioned):
