Today's tutorial is another dramatic look that is perfect for the upcoming New Years celebrations. I've had tons of requests for a New Years party look and when I grabbed my NYX Glitterati Palette, the hot pink spoke to me. Who am I to refuse very compelling hot pink glitter?

Here are some pics of my look:
I'm a fan of the yin-yang thing going on with the inner corner of my eyes and the outer corner wing at the end. With makeup, it's all about balance. Heavier smokey eyes need this balance to not look overwhelming on the face.
Here you can see the sharp angle of the crease and how the hot pink pops. I also want to note that the end of the wing is at the end of my eyebrow. If you want a wider wing, draw the eyebrows out further as well to match.
Here's a close-up of the eyes. Can I just say that I'm totally obsessed with the Sugarpill Lumi pigment? It's so glowy and iridescent, but not too shockingly teal that it clashes with other brights. I need to use this as a main part of a future tutorial!
Obligatory smile! :) I noticed a few perceptive Youtube commenters saying that my eyebrows are more arched than usual. I trimmed them and decided to go with a sleeker look, which works really well with these types of dramatic eyes! What do you guys think? Does it suit me?
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial and have an incredible last few days of 2011! I have so many new projects in store for 2012 including more Kpop looks, "basics" tutorials, and some HIGHLY requested tags that I know at least a few girls will be looking forward to. Until then you will just have to sit here and patiently wait, and ponder, and maybe also consider giving me suggestions for videos you'd like to see in the new year.
