Friday shoutout, my pretties! Before we jump right into my roundup of the best eye make-up tutorials on Pinterest, I really want to ask you how you’re doing! To be honest, I’m pretty ready for the weekend, as the past week was a bit hectic, both emotionally and physically.
On the up side, I took part in my IRL friend and fellow beauty blogger Katrin‘s very first influencer event here in Zurich…
…which was a lot of fun – but also pretty informative, too, with a talk from Anne Höwler of Cover PR in Germany, who had a lot of good tips on blogging in general. Emotionally, it was a bit of a tough week, because a good friend of mine, Mirjam, died two years ago this week after a lengthy battle with breast cancer, and her kids have been on my mind in the past few weeks… but now, especially. So get your boobies checked, ya hear?
Diving right in to some of my favorite eye make-up tutorials is the PERFECT antidote to feeling a bit blue… and a great start to the weekend, don’t you think?
I don’t know if you’re aware that Hey Pretty is pretty active on Pinterest.
If not, join me there. If so, follow me and get a ton of beauty inspo daily, because I LOOOOVE me that platform!
So all you need now is two eyes, an eye shadow palette, eyeliner, mascara, and (if you really want to go all-out), a pair of fake lashes for the dramatic finale.
Ready, get set… DIY eye make-up tutorials!
