Eye shadow application is my weakness. I really don't know how's the right way to do it. I watched several makeup tutorials on youtube, but I can't copy what they're doing. Maybe because they have powers hahaha kidding! But I'm really thankful because Ms. Theresa teach us the easy way how to apply eye shadow.
