Soft Smoky Valentine's Day Makeup Tutorial [Photogenic Makeup Look]

In the last two months, I received several inquiries about what makeup is best for flash photography purposes. And I figured Valentine's Day was the most appropriate time to share these makeup tips and produce this tutorial, since many of you will be going on romantic dates in dimly lit restaurants. If you're celebrating Single's Awareness Day, however, you can still rock this look! Add more liner and take the color higher up the lid for more fun :)

Hope you enjoy!
