I <3 BEAUTY
What's Dark, Shiny, and Glamorous All Over?

NYE party plans? Check. LBD? Check. Bedazzling eyes? Check - once you've watched Youtube sensation and beauty guru Michelle Phan's tutorial below, that is. In this episode, she dishes out her recipe for a gaze so glamorous that once you've locked eyes with that dreamboat across the bar, he won't be able to look away.

Sounds great, right? And it's super-easy, too. Phan always makes her various guises look like effortless (how does she do it without a mirror?!), but this look really is rather simple and only requires a few key products beyond what you most likely already have.

My girlfriend and I, well we decided that this New Year's, we will stuff ourselves with these tasty fried pieces of perfection.

Ingredients:

About 5 cups vegetable oil
