Whether you want to focus on eyes, lips or both, these videos will enhance your best features and have people asking “who did your makeup?” Smile, and tell them that you did it yourself.
Check out six How-Tos from some of our favorite YouTube beauty stars:
1. Green Eye-Liner: Jennie Jenkins
This green liner look is unexpected yet fantastically festive. Apply this pop of color to your lids if your outfit comes in a more muted palette.

Paint an irresistible red lip and highlight your eyes to create a soft yet sexy makeup look. The glitter in the crease of your eye makes this beat extra special.
3. Purple Shadow: Jayde Pierce
This purple eye look is absolutely stunning. Paired with a pair of false lashes and a nude lip you’ll definitely get compliments.
4. The Photogenic Look: Nabela Noor
It’s New Year’s Eve so the likelihood you’ll be taking pictures is very high. Look your best in photos with this burgundy lip and bold brow look that will make your Instagram photos pop.
5. The Low-Key Look: Kylie Versoza
This makeup smolders in a subtle way with a pale pink lip and brown smokey eye. Perfect if you like to look glam but not necessarily super made-up.
