Sultry Glowing Makeup Look

Hi everyone! I wanted to try out  a new filming area in our house and this was the look that I created. I honestly had a difficult time keeping myself from squinting since I was facing the windows directly. I guess that’s the reason why my eyes have become so sensitive to bright lights the past few days. I finished filming in 3 hours. I actually edited the whole thing yesterday night, the same day I filmed the tutorial. (Yes, I worked on Christmas Day!) For some reason, YouTube acted up and I wasn’t able to post it right away. I was having second thoughts about the video because in some parts, I had “almost crying” eyes because of the light. Because of this hesitation, I posted a preview photo an hour ago and asked everyone’s opinion about it.  Due to positive feedback, I uploaded the video (which I’m glad I didn’t delete!) I’m elated that some thought it’s different from the usual makeup looks that I do—that made me feel really glad. Thanks to everyone who helped me!
