Why: Smoky eyes are smoldering and seductive on screen and in the pages of magazines, but whenever I try to recreate the look on myself, I end up looking like a panda bear. Something always goes wrong between the blending and the smudging, the eyeliner and the mascara. Thank goodness Expert Village has taken step-by-step one step further by putting beauty how-to videos on the Web for all to see and benefit from.
Keep It or Return It? Keep it! Much more helpful than a written set of instructions, professional makeup artist Angelaâ€™s beauty knowledge videos cover everything from creating a smoky eye to choosing the best makeup colors for your skin tone. She shares her techniques for applying eyeliner, lip color, cream blush, foundation and eye shadow. Plus, she gives tips on using makeup brushes and buying products, and her â€œIs expensive makeup better than cheap?â€ video is a must-watch for budget conscious beauty hounds.
Find It: Explore Expert Villageâ€™s beauty archives to find helpful videos on everything from wedding day makeup to DIY waxing to pertinent product reviews. Be careful, though: there are no â€œhow to kick your addiction to beauty how-to videosâ€ clips yet.
