PINK SMOKY EYE (A Make Up Tutorial For St. Valentine's Day)

So, I got two nice requests recently: 
  1. To do a pink smoky eye make up tutorial
  2. To do a St. Valentine's appropriate make up look
I put the two&two together: Pink smoky eye IS ideal look for a St. Valentine's Day!
& that is how I combined two requests in one video! :)
