Spring Time Candy Eyes a.k.a My First Tutorial

Hey Beauty Otakus!
Here in Minnesota spring isn't exactly as it should be (so much snow!). So I decided that if I couldn't indulge in the spring weather I could at least enjoy a spring inspired look. This is the first tutorial that I have ever filmed and it was a blast. I love gradient eye looks that incorporate multiple colors and the pastel eye shadows that arrive with the season; so I combined the two and sprinkled it with sugar (glitter top coat) for a look that stands out in the sun. 

Being that this is my first tutorial I learned a lot of dos and dont's. But instead of reshooting the whole thing I wanted to enjoy having a first tutorial thats "pure", ya know filled with innocent mistakes, that way in the future I could compare this video to my new ones and see how my skill has grown. My favorite mistake from this video is a misspelling of a rather simple word...I'll just let you catch it. So what do you guys think of the look? What's your spring go to look? Do you have any tips for me and my filming style (I'm still trying to figure it out)? Thanks for reading and watching, I will be posting more videos in the very near future.
You can find them on my blog or my YouTube channel:

Stay strong, healthy, and beautiful in the meantime.
