I have an urgent and important question for you, friend!
Are you ready…?
Brace yourself. Here goes: what’s your karaoke song?
Okay, so maybe it wasn’t important in the Merriam-Webster sense of the word, but I’m curious.
Me? I have a couple of musical standbys honed by the fires of fifty Filipino family gatherings! Seriously, you can always count on two things at a Filipino party — 1) a redonkulous amount of food and 2) karaoke! 🙂
Myself, I like to warm up with a little Phil Collins…
“She’s an easy lover! She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it!”
And then really get the crowd going with Cheap Trick…
“I waaaant yoooo to want meeee!”
The later meets the three crucial criteria of a top karaoke song. It’s upbeat, almost everyone knows the words to it (so they can sing along), and it doesn’t require any complex vocal gymnastics, which is good because I reserve that kind of thing for my car or shower.
Next time I hit the mic (hopefully soon — karaoke, anyone?), I’m wearing Anastasia’s new holiday 2012 eye makeup kit, because not only does it pay homage to my go-to karaoke tune, but the colors are just plain pretty!
The $34 limited edition Want You to Want Me kit’s lush velvet case houses enough eye makeup to keep your eyes glowing softly while you rock all night long.
The kit includes…
- A gift box with a velvet cover, chain detailing and a magnetic closure (so pretty!)
- An eyeshadow palette with nine powder shades in mostly shimmery brown, beige, taupe and purple colors; the palette pops out of the larger velvet box for easy touch-ups on the road
- A black liquid eyeliner with a thin brush applicator
- A clear brow gel
- A small dual-tipped brush
