Happy New Year! Red Wings/Kohaku Uta Gassen EOTD New Year's Eve

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!  Did you glam it up for New Years Eve? I did a festive look for the Red Wings game I attended last night.  Red and White are also the colors I could have worn for a Kohaku Uta Gassen viewing party in Japan.  Kohaku Uta Gassen is a girls vs. boys singing competition on NHK network every year in Japan.  The literal translation is the Red (ko) & White (haku) Song Competition.  Top musical acts compete on either side and a winner is chosen... it's not really unlike New Year's Rockin' Eve on TV in the U.S., except they make a little "competition" out of it! A quick google search shows that last night the Red Team (girls' team!) won... and so did the Red Wings!  Good omen for the new year, no?

  5. This is beautiful. I love red as an eyeshadow, and the placement and vibrancy of the red adds a remarkable "oomph" to the look.

  11. When I clicked on your blog, I literally said out loud, "Oh, wow!" when I saw your eyes. I never thought about creating wings over my eye lids. That's super interesting!

    Happy New Year, beautiful! :)

  12. Happy New Year, Bonnie! Actually I didn't intend them to be wings, lol ;) I live in Detroit and my fave team is the Detroit Red Wings (hockey). We went to the Wings/Blues game on New Years Eve so it was team spirit ^.^;;
