Hello! I feel like it’s been forever since my last post. I’ve decided to try posting my tutorials on Mondays instead of Saturday mornings. I just needed a change of pace but I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. I loved getting everything done and posted before the weekend and now I worry about it all weekend, eek! Is there a specific day that you check in for the new tutorial or are you used to seeing them on Saturdays? Let me know! I’m trying to figure out this new schedule (: Thanks for reading! xo, Missy

If you recently saw my Lioness Halloween Hairstyle then today I’m excited to be sharing the makeup from that video.

I used a bunch of different shades to achieve this makeup look so if you’re new to makeup you could easily use one eyeshadow and finish with the liner.  I think the real effect is bringing the black liner in towards the nose on the lower lash line along with the detailing around the nose and mouth.

Even if you don’t plan to dress up for Halloween, I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy
