Make Up Look #1

Hey guys! I know, I'm going crazy with the blogging today! This however, is one of the posts I have been looking forward to doing the most.

My experience with make up is pretty short lived. I started using make up only a few years ago, and I never really did anything other than applying eyeliner and mascara. I really got into eye shadows when I discovered make up gurus on Youtube. Those videos pretty much took over my life. I've tried doing a lot of looks only to fail miserably, but you know what they say; practice makes perfect. Here is something I decided to try today!

I tried to take the best pictures I could, but my 8.3 megapixel Cybershot can only do so much :( I need a new camera!

All of these pictures are taken in different settings to give you a good idea of how the make up looks. There's dark room with flash, lit room with flash and lit room without flash. Hopefully you can tell what I've tried out here.
