Fall Soft Glam Makeup Tutorial 2021

I honestly didn’t think I would be creating content again but I decided to make a quick pumpkin pie video on TikTok few days ago and realized that I actually missed it. I think the pandemic really got to me and I’m sure it has all affected us in some way. I worked from home and I was mostly in sweatpants and t-shirt. I didn’t have the motivation to film videos or even to do my makeup. I posted stories on Instagram and Snapchat but that’s about it. However, I now feel ready to be posting photos and videos again. I did have to get used to the new updates of my software program and I'm still working on my filming setup.

Here's a quick fall makeup tutorial featuring Huda Beauty Naughty Eyeshadow Palette. Hope you guys like it! :)
