░ Beauty Tutorial: Inspired by the Japanese Kimono ░

This tutorial is inspired by the beautiful Japanese Kimono. I was lucky enough to find something vintage (circa 1980's, back in my mom's teenage days) to wear that would mimic that of a Kimono's pattern. Wearing it off-shoulder type was just something I thought of. Think of it this way, "modern Kimono", perhaps?
So basically, I created this look incorporating the colors ranging from pink to purple. I wanted to emphasize the highlights, the lashes, and the eyeshadow colors as well. If by any chance you get confused along the way (while watching the tutorial), please don't hesitate to write a comment down below. I just want to keep this short to save time.
