Best Makeup Tutorials of 2013

Hi! Today I’ve got my Best Makeup Tutorials for 2013 to share with you. I feel like my skills have really improved by leaps and bounds this year, mostly due to practice, partially due to my Wayne Goss brushes. Looking through the past year of tutorials in review, I wish I had found the Wayne Goss mascara tutorial sooner. My lashes look terrible in the older posts! These are listed in order from the newest to the oldest.

Here are my picks for the best video makeup tutorials I created for 2013.

Rose Gold Cat Eye with Sugarpill and Urban Decay.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Radiant Orchid Tutorial – Reader request for more Naked 3 tutorials, how to wear radiant orchid beauty, and Darling Girl Glitter Glue.

Darling Girl Death by Unicorn – another reader request. Love how soft this one turned out with Darling Girl and Makeup Geek.

Naked Pentacle with Urban Decay Naked 3 and Morgana Cryptoria – another reader request.

Morgana Cryptoria Don’t Blink.

Urban Decay Blackheart. LOVE this!

Reader Request with the Urban Decay Shattered & Anarchy Face cases.

        I only picked the ones that I thought were good, and the ones from January – May made me cringe!

    • FabZilla_Kath

      I love all of your makeup looks. Just like your hair, you can get away w/ any color or eye makeup. By the way, your videos don’t work on my iPad, I wonder why.

      • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        Aww thanks! I think it’s because of the ads thing.

    • http://www.honeygirlsworld.com/ Honeygirlk

      You are the bees knees… I love all of your makeup looks, just gorgeous. And, your hair – you make me miss my purple hair. :) Love it all! :D

        Thank you! You could get some purple clips :)
