V-Day Makeup Tutorial: "Touch My Hand" by David Archuleta

OMG! Connie with bright pink lips!

Dark bronze smokey eyes, though highly captivating, are a dime a dozen. After seeing Troy Jensen's work on Rachel McAdams and falling in love with the look, I thought I'd brave myself to wear a bright pink lip. What do you think?

"Touch My Hand", to me, is a powerful and timeless love song but with such innocence to it. I figured this bold yet somewhat sweet look would fit perfectly.

This eye makeup works for a Kim Kardashian look as well. Simply pair with some nude lipstick and bronze up the cheeks. You'll transform from sweet to bombshell in no time!

"Touch My Hand"
by David Archuleta
(music video)

Saw you from a distance
Saw you from the stage
Something about the look in your eyes
Something about your beautiful face

In a sea of people
There is only you
I never knew what the song was about
But suddenly now I do

Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
Reach out as far as you can
Only me, only you and the band
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand

Can't let the music stop
Can't let this feeling end
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never see you again

Can't let the music stop
Until I touch your hand
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again

I see the sparkle of a million flashlights
A wonder wall of stars
But the one that's shining out so bright
Is the one right where you are

Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand
Reach out as far as you can
Only me, only you and the band
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand

Can't let the music stop
Can't let this feeling end
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never see you again

Can't let the music stop
Until I touch your hand
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again

Saw you from the distance
Saw you from the stage
Something about the look in your eyes
Something about your beautiful face

Can't let the music stop
Can't let this feeling end
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never see you again

Can't let the music stop
Until I touch your hand
'Cause if I do, it'll all be over
I'll never get the chance again
I'll never get the chance again
(Reach out to you, touch my hand)

I'll never get the chance again
(Reach out as far as you can)
I'll never get the chance again
(Only me, only you and the band)
Trying to reach out to you, touch my hand, yeah
