Fortunately thats a fairly easy look to do.  I’ll start out by talking about what the model in the pic you posted is wearing.  It appears she has a nude shade on the lid.  The liner can be a bit tricky but I just found this article this morning and it may be helpful to you:  http://www.lovelyish.com/772873053/make-the-most-of-your-eyeliner-with-these-5-pro-tips/

 

To make your eyes appear more open and brighter, use a white eyeliner on the water line of the lower lid, also the highlighter that you are talking about is a white shimmer or white shadow that can be applied just under the brow bone and also in the inner corner of the eye.  When you are using it under the arch of the brow bone, you want to be sure that the eyebrows are tweezed well because the white makes any dark hair really stand out.  The model also has defined eyebrows, most likely filled in with pencil and brow powder. 

The perfect skin is the focus of this look, and I used ELF high definition powder for my own skin on my wedding day.  It gave that airbrushed look, and worked very well.

All in all, this appears to be a 50’s inspired look, so typing that into youtube listed tons of results.  You’re not really going for the pin up look of the 50’s.  I found this one in a quick search.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUJaqWWMn6E

This is totally do able with a little practice.  Another tip is to buy a felt tip liquid liner, as sometimes they are a little easier to control over a brush liquid liner.    If you get a little practice, you can totally do this yourself.

@beautifulmama28:  Wow, that makeup is perfection. Pixiwoo is amazing, and she has a few retro makeup tutorials (and she gives pretty detailed descriptions of what she’s doing and how she’s doing it):

@tallierand:  That makes SO much more sense. I was wondering how she changed her voice and face between videos LOL

@MlleFabuleux:  Hahahaha! A lot of people make that mistake actually. I’ve been watching them for years. Their names are Sam (1st, 3rd, and 5th photo you posted) and Nicole (2nd and 4th photos). ๐Ÿ™‚

@beautifulmama28:  Elf is sold at Target but you can also get it here.. http://www.eyeslipsface.com/

 

The white shadow can be either shimmer or matte.  I personally like to add a bit of a shimmer one, but don;t like to go overboard or it tends to look too made up.  You can always blend too to make it look more natural, and should blend so there are no visible lines of where the shadow starts and ends.  I’ve found that the NYC taupe pencil is an adpatable brow pencil for most brow shades in the brown category.  It’s what I use on myself, and use short strokes instead of long ones.  If your brows are pretty sparse you will need both the liner and the powder, however if your brows are pretty sufficient, like mine, you will only need a stroke here and there, and not fully filled in… or you get a clown effect and unnatural look.  I also used the NYC brown brow powder on my wedding day.  It comes in a duo with a “wax” on one side and a powder on the other.  You dip in the wax first, then the powder.  I also helped seal the brows with a clear mascara to hold them in place.
