"Hi I'm Patricia Longo and I'm a celebrety make-up artist. I've worked with models from sports illustrated, Brooklyn Decker, Julie Henderson, to Alec Baldwin from thirty rock. All those things that experts do that the average person doesn't know how to do We will learn how to do it on these videos.
Now we all know the mistakes we make with eye shadow. Sometimes when we put the eye shadow on it falls on the face, of course right now its not falling on you face but lets make it fall on your face so I'm going to purposely make it fall on her face so you can see I messed up her eye shadow. Uhhh ohhhh. There is the eye shadow what am I going to do now? The biggest mistake people do is they take a sponge and they all of a sudden start smudging it. Its the worse thing you can do because then its a big black eye. The way I clean off eye shadow I wrap a cleansing towelet around my finger and what I do is I just go like this lightly. So after I've used a cleansing towelet I take a tissue a dry tissue and I wrap it also around my finger. Its the best way to clean up make-up from underneath the eye, and I just dab it lightly so it drys. If I've taken any concealer off I just simply apply with my finger where ever I've taken make-up off I just reapply it lightly with my finger. So the best way to clean up eye shadow that ends up falling on your face the excess eye shadow is using a cleansing towelette with your finger and taking it and washing it off and putting a tissue and wrapping it around your finger and dabbing it lightly dry. And then once you do that you can reapply the foundation or the concealer whatever you took off you can reapply it.I couldn't get the example to load and I've never done transcription I hope this was acceptable. Video worked great."
