Dark Passion

Happy Holidays everyone! Now that Christmas is almost over, things are slowly getting back to normal - and so is the blog! There might even be some more looks than usual over the next few days as I'm on holidays and for once, not travelling! A few days ago, I came across some digital images of fantasy make-up and was wildly inspired by the fabulous designs, so I decided to do something similar today:





How to achieve it:
1. Prep your lids (I prefer Bare Canvas when taking pictures, as it evens out my lid colour and surface like nothing else!).
2. Apply Your Ladyship pigment on the browbone.
3. Apply matte black shadow all over the lid and in the crease, starting slightly behind the tearduct.
4. Apply matte red shadow above the black across the outer two thirds of the lid with a pointy brush (MAC #219), blending into the black.
5. Take a fluffly brush (MAC #217) and apply Peppier eyeshadow above the red with a very light hand.
6. Line upper lid with black gel eyeliner, drawing the line further out in the inner and outer corners. Also line below the lower lashline and blend the harsh line with black eyeshadow.
7. Apply matte rd and Peppier on the lower lid in the same style as the upper lid.
8. Apply Majolica Majorca RD544 red metallic liner on the inner half of the lower lid as well as the outer half of the upper lid.
9. Put a small drop of lash glue to your hand and dip some red rhinestones into it one by one, then apply the rhinestones to the outer lid and on the browbone. Pick up and apply the rhinestones with tweezers. Add a clear one in the inner corner as well.
10. Line the lower waterline with white kohl pencil.
11. Apply false lashes and mascara to the upper lashes, then mascara only to the lower ones.
Done!

I think this tutorial was very helpful and I enjoy the look immensely as it is rather gothic in my opinion. I would love to see more tutorials like this.
