One of the things I love most about doing Youtube is that I get to share a part of my past and culture with other people. Kpop is something I've loved since I was a little girl listening to 룰라 (I was as obsessed with 비밀은없어 as I was with Ace of Base's The Sign) while dancing in my living room, so I of course think it's so amazing that new Korean music is sent to me through e-mail, youtube, and twitter messages requesting tutorials for the latest songs.
Lately, I've had a flood of requests for Miss A's "Touch" and when I queued up the video, I immediately saw why...
Here is Miss A's video:

For reference, I took a few screencaps. As you can see, the feel of this video is very edgy and almost gothic with sharp winged eyeliner, crystals adorning the eyes, and babydoll stained lips.
For my version, I chose to do a monolid version using a charcoal grey wing and spidery lower lashes. The crystals right beneath the eyes add interest while the rest of the face is kept relatively plain to keep focus on the eyes and lips.
One of the biggest highlights of this look are the stained lips. This type of gradient lip is quite popular in Asia since it gives the appearance of a smaller, babydoll mouth.
Here you can see the straight line from the outer corner of the wing to the middle of my eyelid. This photo also shows the soft double wing on the lower lash line as well as the bronzer used to contour my nose and cheeks.
Overall, I feel like this is a sharp look for going out on the weekend. It's not your typical smokey eye and nude lip but it still gives the same sort of edgy feeling.
I hope you guys enjoyed watching and let me know in the comments what you'd like to see for future tutorials!
