With Halloween just around the corner, YouTube beauty guru Michelle Phan's "futuristic" makeup tutorial couldn't have come at a better time! With minimal product and a couple of simple steps, you can completely transform your eyes for a dark, edgy look.

A few tips from Michelle: Changing up the shape of your eyebrows can dramatically affect your look. Applying concealer generously to your eyebrows creates a blank canvas on which you can draw a new shape. Using a blonde-light brown eyebrow pencil, fill in your eyebrows like you normally would, but instead of going in an arch-like motion, extend the shape so the eyebrow looks more straight and structured ("Like Spock," advises Michelle). Also apply concealer (or eyeshadow base) around your lids to prep for the matte eyeshadow. And finally, using a little concealer on your lips keeps all of the focus on your high-drama eyes.
