    Eyeshadow pallets have multi colors. This doesn’t explain anything. Like choose light for here. Dark for here, etc etc

    This look is amazing!! I’m just starting to (try to) get into makeup and wear it more often. I’m just confused on one thing.. with makeup being so expensive, I feel like there’s a huge waste in the “tapping excess off” part. I totally understand why you don’t want extra powder on your eyes, but it looks like you just tap it all off onto the table 😨 Is there any way to achieve this without wasting a majority of the makeup?

    I like your tutorials only if ud talk less would be better in my opinion coz frankly ur repeating the same words over n over so it kinda gets boring n I feel the urge to fast forward the video. Overall I really like ur technique 😊

    I’m new to you and just watched your tutorial for beginners and really loved it because I like how you zoomed in on the eye and I could see exactly what you were doing. And you were very clear in your explanations which I like. Funny sense of humor! The only thing I would like to say is when you got done with the eyeshadow if you could show us a less glamorous eyeliner and eyelash because for me personally it was a little bit too much mascara and eyeliner. But otherwise really enjoyed your video, and I am subscribing.

    Fantastic video! But I can't understand how you were able to take that very light colour and get it on the inner corners of your lids ON TOP OF the darker colours. Every time I have tried that, it never works. I can never see it as the darker colours clobber it. Did you wet it or something??

    How come you put shadow on the bottom? And not just leave it on the top. What does that accomplish in the look? I’m just confused.

    Finally a very descriptive tutorial! I bought my first nice eyeshadow palette the other day and I’ve been messing around with it. I always got eye shadow from Walmart so it isn’t pigmented enough to see mistakes. But these pallets I got show all my mistakes and this video helps so much. Thank you!! ❤️

  • habiseca guhasuthan

    I have a question: i have just gotten 4 different morphe palettes for my bday from friends bc I said I liked eyeshadow n wanna learn how to do it. I'm a newbie btw and was wondering how u fit shimmer colours/tones with your other colours? Sometimes I find some to be too silvery or too yellow even if they r gold n I was just wondering if there was a method to see which wld fit certain colours.
    Idk if you've done a bit on this but cld u show/explain how to match completely different colours with each other without one overpowering the other or it just being too much? Thank you
    Btw I really appreciated u holding the colours up n showing how dark/light they were and ur brushes n how to fix mistakes (needed this the most) thanks!!😁

    Love this! No one else ever talks about how to hold your mirror, where to look, how to apply, use your brush... etc...Most people don’t even think about that stuff, and just assume that you know! Thanks for making everything so clear and easy to understand!
