    Should have used the same products on both sides to really compare the differences. Like change the shading if you have to, but comparing the two looks with different brands just seems like you're comparing brands rather than techniques.

    Great video. In my opinion, her brows in 2014 looked better than her "recreated" 2014 brows and her updated brows. It looked so soft, natural and gorgeous!

    The way your eyes look makes your face look sideways, I definitely see what you mean when you say it makes your eye look bigger 100%

    It's so fun to see you recreate a look you did a few years ago. You were literally the first makeup youtuber I started watching and inspired me to start my makeup journey and constantly improve my skills. I love it how you've grown as a channel and mainly as a person.

    question to Nikkie or you guys in the comments, how do I make sure that my eyeshadow residue doesn't collect under my eye when it falls off? I always make sure to tap my prush off before applying but I still end up with a little residue powder of the eyeshadow under my eye...any tips for a beginner? Thaaanks xxxx

  • Illidana
    Illidana 17 days ago

    I feel like the left side is so RuPaulish while the right side is something anyone can totally rock without the drag vibe. And looking back at the 2014 video, things were more natural...the skin, lips even the teeth. Let’s not bring drag into a daily routine, let’s not give ourself a plastic surgery every time we do makeup, let’s still embrace our natural eye shape and lip shape and nose shape. Ultimately, let’s still have fun with makeup.

    the new one is beautiful and more dramatic..but i think the old one is better. The eyebrow is more natural and the colors and shape of eyeshadows makes your eyes bigger and sexy.
