Youtube makeup tutorial – Behind the scenes…

March 12, 2013
I recently did my first Youtube makeup tutorial (see here). So I thought I’d share some pics from the day itself.
As you can see, my apartment was turned upside down for the shoot (sorry about the kitchen) with sarees drapes everywear to create that ‘desi’ look:

A whistle-stop summary of the products I used for this Youtube makeup tutorial are:

Base – Murad Blemish Fighting Primer

Eyeshadow – from a palette available at Debenhams (unbranded)

And here’s the final look…
