Contest Etiquette

So I just ended my last giveaway and I have yet to receive the results from all my judges, and I will be selecting the comment winner when I make the video.

As many of you may have noticed- this giveaway was actually extended out of popular demand.

I had experienced a little trouble over the closing of this contest regarding one particular contestant that never got to enter her video because she was, I quote not "very computer saavy like everybody else" therefore she couldn't work out the timezone and didn't know when the contest ended. And I don't want this happening again in the future because some of her messages were very rude and demeaning.

At some point of the conversation she even accused me of having chosen a winner beforehand, which I can't because I'm not judging this myself.

Taking in account I wasn't being very nice either- Actually, I was quite bitchy... But hey! At least I typed in proper grammar and actually apologized while she continued arguing with a girl at least half her age!

I'll include some screenshots of what you shouldn't do to anger me and get yourself disqualified at the end of this post.

Anyway, continuing on to the time zone problem. It's simple easy maths. You find out how many hours ahead or behind we are and you take it in account. So if I was to close this contest at GMT+8 and you live in PST you'd find out the time difference which is slower by 16 hours.

So you'd have to upload your video 16 hours before this contest ends.

So I guess thats all I wanted to say.

Basically, if you treat me with proper respect as a fellow YouTuber and try to be as civil as possible. I'll do the same. You be bitchy to me, I'll be bitchy to you. You're as sweet as an angel can be, I'll try to be the best person to you. Easy right?

And that ends up evil rant- wasn't it nice to hear me not be all goody-two-shoes for once?

Anyways~ love you all!

Much love,
Syuri

PS. Enjoy looking at the evil side of me.

Cry-fest

I don't normally do a lot of video features (that aren't 'video upload' vids), but this is special.
This is inspirational. He is a true role model to all children around the world for me.

乌达木 is 12 only, but I feel like he is a much better person than a lot of us can ever be already. He understands so so much.


I cried so much. I'm still crying.
It's so touching. 

I can't express how rude I thought one of the judges were when they interrupted through the song with their commentry.... Although I only understand very few words from the song since it was Mongolian- I'm still crying right now. 

I have heard this song beforehand- before he sang it. And I have cried in all the versions that this song has ever been in. But this is the only time I have ever cried so much. I have already cried so much I had to take my medication so I could continue breathing- and crying. 

To all those that can- please please please vote for him. He is a real inspiration to every child around the world.

I truly pray that his mother in heaven can watch over him and listen to his beautiful perfomance.

Natural Smokey Eye

I just posted my natural smokey eye tutorial- it's the first installment of my Prom Collection ^^
Thankyou to 11tiggers for requesting this for her prom- I hope she has a wonderful time in the event!

I would have never tried to do a Prom Collection without her since we don't have proms here at my school T^T

It can be played up if you swap in a bright color for the gray brown or darker color (eg. black); or toned down if you don't add the extra little color in the inner corners of your lids =3

But check out the video okay?

Next Tutorial: Angel Salvatore

The next tutorial I'll be doing will be an inspired look from the movie "X-Men: First Class", because I'm a comic geek and I love the movies just as much no matter what anybody says XP

This look will be something semi-dramatic and great for dinner parties and other functions as it looks classy but not overdone... Here are some shots for this look (I'm still editing the video) ^^

I was originally doing this look for 11tiger's prom request- but then I realized that it was similar to Angel's makeup in the movie when I saw it, so I thought... why not both? ;3

As this is natural, it should go with all dresses, shoes, and hairstyles- and for prom, you want people to notice your dress first! Makeup should only accentuate your natural features for the mass of photos =]
