Happy Friday and Happy Glow With Pride Day! Today is June 15th and that means we are exactly halfway through Pride Month, so what a perfect day to celebrate being YOU and finding YOUR perfect look! Willow is really excited to have been able to bring you Glow With Pride, and in honour of today’s amazing event, and the power of makeup to transform, we are revisiting some of our favourite Aveda makeup tutorials in today’s post.
If you haven’t yet been to the Aveda YouTube channel (honestly, what’s stopping you?!?) you need to know that there are DOZENS of tutorials aimed at helping you create that perfect look for you.
Bold red lip? Check! Subtle, neutral look? Check! Smoky eye? You know it! Or maybe you want just the basics. They’ve got that too.
We here at the blog LOVE the YouTube videos because they’re short – long enough for you to get what they’re doing, and short enough not to be overwhelming. We also love being able to pause, go back, pause again, go back…repeat repeat repeat…so as not to miss anything. And, the pause button is your best friend when you want to test something out step by step. Watch step 1, pause, give it a go…well, you get the picture.
So. Enough with the chitter chatter! Let’s get to the videos, and here – in no particular order – are our Top Five Aveda YouTube Makeup Tutorials:
Oh this one is sooooo pretty! Beautiful blush and golden tones on the eyes, soft muted colours on the cheeks, and all topped off with a striking red lip! To die for.
A work of art needs the perfect canvas and this tutorial not only shows the makeup side, but also gives you tips for prepping the skin in order to ensure makeup goes on smoothly – and stays put. Technique is important too, and in the video we learn how to apply foundation (in this case Aveda’s tinted moisture) for even, complete coverage. There’s a lot packed into this 2-minute video, and it’s worth watching every second.
Ah, the nude lip. So sought after! So elusive! Well, not anymore! Take 1:46 out of your day to see how it’s done properly, and recreate the look whenever you want. A perfect look for summer.
This video is one of the most gorgeous less-than-two-minutes-long videos ever shot. It’s positively romantic, and the final look is dramatic but soft and sweet. Definitely more of a special occasion look for most of us!
The one we’ve all been waiting for! Smoky eyes are nearly always in style, so why not learn from the best, and dazzle ‘em wherever you go.
We hope these Aveda tutorials have inspired you this morning! Whether you’re attempting one of these looks for the first time, or you’re looking for a new way to work an old favourite, remember Aveda (and Willow!) for all your makeup, tools, and prep product needs.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone, and if you’re coming in for Glow With Pride, we look forward to seeing you later today! Chat with you all again on Tuesday!
