The Power of Makeup

Hey Beauties!
Thought I would show you a little look I created on myself & let you know what products I used. As you have probably read the title, I am calling this the 'Power of makeup' because it kind of shows you what the great thing that is make up ,can do. It can allow you to go from a scary/sore site to the eyes to something a lot more easier to look at.
 I warn you I did use a LOT of products on my face but I wanted to get that glamorous/flawless look that would last ages or at least until I wiped it off!
The endless list of products are as follows:
Benefit POREfessional
HD Brows Professional Eye & Brow Palette
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC paint pot - Painterly
Crave from UD Naked Basics
Brush from UD Naked Palette
MAC 217 Brush
Garnet from Lorac Pro Palette

MAC 224 Brush
TBS Angled Brush
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara
Maybelline Great lash Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Venus from Naked Basics

MAC Contour brush
MAC "Soft & Gentle"
MAC Lip pencil "Brick"
MAC Lip pencil "Vino"
MAC Lipstick "Rebel"
MAC Lipstick "Ruby Woo"
MaxFactor Max Effect lip gloss
I did warn you it was a long list!
If you want to see how I created this look in a QUICK video you can HERE. This was my entry for the You Generation Makeup competition judged by Pixiwoo. I didn't win nor did I expect to. I basically just done the video for the challenge, it was my first time sitting & doing makeup in front of a camera, first time editing a video (badly) & first time entering a makeup competition. It may not be the best video or best editing or best entry but it was at the time my BEST TRY. And for that I am proud. I have/had no intention of starting a youtube channel right now just uploaded for the purpose of the competition. But now that I have done it I really enjoyed it & liked it and I feel like it would be something for to look into in the future to help me build my confidence/skills in makeup as I think it would push me to be more daring & try new things. I'm still not sure, what do you think, should I?
And it wont be as choppy because i'll be doing it without the time limit. But as I said it is something I have to think about as it is a LOT of work & takes a lot of time to build an audience. And personally I don't know if anyone could/would watch them LOL.
Some of the products aren't seen in the video even though they were used and that's basically because of trying to cut nearly an hour long video down to 5 minutes!
 I called this the smokey eye & smokey lips look as it is a glamorous look with a twist, its your classic dark smokey eye & a red lip which is smoked out by blending in a darker colour at the edges. This is a really easy look to create & that was what I was going for. It is by no means a PRO look but a look that is easy to create with a Pro finish.
I would love to know what you thought of this look/video.
Did you enter this competition?
Give this look a try & let me see your version.
