Tutorial: Birthstone Series - #4, April "Diamonds"

This is the look I came up with for the April birthstone, diamonds. I could have gone with the sparkly eyes and the sparkly lip, but I decided to go for old hollywood glamour.
Why? Because whenever I think "Diamonds" I think Marilyn Monroe and "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend". I did put a little bit of a twist on it by adding a slight shimmer to the middle of the lid, and didn't keep it completely matte.
I was also inspired by a Chanel ad for their new Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss. It's probably my favorite ad of the year I've seen so far. It's stunning...
Anyways, here is the tutorial, and all the products mentioned in the video!
