It's 2016 and we're still trying to figure out how to properly put on our makeup without spending way too long figuring it out. And YouTube is full of so many tutorials, we barely know where to start. Fortunately, thanks to Glamour, we narrowed down these top 5 makeup tricks to master in 2016.
Want to know how to achieve that perfect Kardashian contour? Of course you do. Luckily the Pixiwoo sisters have all the steps laid out in one easy, simple-to-follow video. And in case that wasn't enough, a simple tutorial for gorgeous metallic eyes has also been thrown in for good measure.
2. Blemish Concealment
Makeup artist Lisa Eldridge is one of the most respected figures in the beauty industry, and for good reason. Not only does she deliver beautiful step-by-step guides for some gorgeous makeup looks, she also works hard to provide videos that will really help her audience in a big way. Take, for example, the above tutorial in which she instructs her subscribers how to cover up acne and blemish-prone skin. Lisa believes in using light, skin-friendly techniques rather than piling on heavy product to simply cover the problem, which we seriously respect her for.
3. 'No Makeup' Makeup
Our favourite Canadian-born blogger is witty and full of banter and, oh, she seriously knows her stuff when it comes to makeup. From gorgeous short hair how-tos to this great stripped-back look, Estée covers all bases with her channel. We also sort of wish she was our best friend.
4. Cat Eye
It may sound simple but a video showing us how to create the perfect feline flick is practically a God-send. It's one of the hardest things to achieve, and even beauty pros can find it hard to get even, smooth lines. Makeup extraordinaire Charlotte Tilbury shows you how to achieve the look with minimal effort and maximum results.
5. Smoky Eye
We love a good smoky eye as much as the next girl, trust us. But sometimes it can be hard to get the look right... too much product, not enough blending, inevitable smudging: there are a plethora of things that can go wrong. Lisa explains clearly and slowly how to achieve the perfect dark sultry eye with ease.
