I've heard about makeup tutorials on YouTube, but I never felt I had the patience to sit down and watch them. I also figured that applying makeup like a pro is just something you're either born with or you're not. I obviously considered myself the latter.
Well, yesterday I was searching for some new blogs to follow on bloglovin', and decided to peruse the beauty section. That's when I found Tanya Burr's wonderfully informative & fun beauty blog and makeup tutorial vlogs. I watched a few yesterday, and this morning I was feeling inspired and decided to give one of her tutorials a shot. I honestly can't believe I was able to accomplish it! The end result is pretty amazing---a complete transformation! A million thanks to Tanya Burr! If you guys haven't heard of her, you definitely need to check out her makeup tutorial vlogs. Plus, she's from the UK and who doesn't love listening to a British accent?
Here is the tutorial that I followed:
And here are some photos of how my makeup turned out, but first starting out with the dreaded "before" photos:
This is what sleeping on wet hair in a pony tail looks like.

What do you guys think?
I decided to post this on a Friday in case anyone wanted to try out this tutorial this weekend. The makeup I used was not the same as what Tanya used, but I tried to use all similar colors. I think the only product I used that was the same was the NARS foundation. On the bottom of this post I've included a list of all the products I used to get this look.
Moral of the story: If I can learn how to do my makeup following an online tutorial, anyone can!
