5-Minute Makeup School - Eyeshadow

Last week we learned how to get our brows on fleek.  If you missed the lesson, get caught up here.  This week we are tackling something that I personally have a real phobia about.  Yep, you guessed it.  It’s EYESHADOW!  So let’s jump into our lesson.  Oh, and I haven’t forgotten my promise to you to keep these lessons short and sweet. So here is our 5-Minute Makeup Lesson for the week – Eyeshadow.




LESSON PLAN:  So here’s the plan –

I’m gonna give you suggestions for tools and products (can’t do anything without the right tools). Then comes a quick tutorial video or two (5 minutes or less). And lastly you do the homework.

The goal of this post is to introduce or help you master a makeup technique FAST For immediate results.  So you can either practice this lesson now or bookmark it for later tonight.  Now you can look put together in 5 minutes.

Now on to our lesson.
