NYE Jennifer Lawrence Smokey Eyes + Makeup Tips and Tricks

Hi muserrrrs

So this tutorial was my official final video for the year 2013. What a great way to end a crazy year!

As I wrote in the info bar for the video, since I've recently been doing a heap of quick, fast voiceover/non-voiceover tutorials, I decided to do a detailed live tutorial giving you guys real, practical advice on makeup tips and tricks, especially for asian eyes. These are little things I have figured out on my own from years of experience, not taught to me by anyone in particular! In fact, this is the very reason I started my Youtube channel in the first place - to share techniques particular to my eye shape that simply cannot be generalised as a 'rule-of-thumb' method that will work on anyone. So I was very happy to do this.

I do apologise about the video length but I'm glad a lot of you guys found it very useful and learnt a lot from it, as I am reading from your comments!
