Tutorial: Plague rats!

Hello everybody! :)

The absence of blogposts lately is due to some very time consuming things that have happened the past week. I've told in previous blogposts that I have moved recently and now it's time again. Me and Mr Noire have got a nice apartment in one of the best parts of this town and are moving in there in the beginning of May. Yay! :D We thought we'd have to wait for at least a year to get an apartment there but it took only a month.

Anyways, the other day I went to an Emilie Autumn concert which was great! What a show! She's a very talented musician and show artist so I thought I'd do a makeup look inspired by the way she usually wears her makeup.

If you're not an Emilie Autumn fan you can of course use this look anyway, just skip the heart or exchange the red for another color. :)

Whether you're a hard core fan or just like her artistry you have probably noticed that Emilie Autumn often uses a lot of black under her eyes and combined with a heart under her left eye (I think it is...) this is the characteristic of her eye-makeup look. 

It's a great look without the heart too and you can combine the black lower lash line and long bottom lashes with any upper lid color you want. :)

Another of Emilie Autumn's characteristics is doll like lips, you know, the kinds that where popular in the twenties. I like this lip-look too because it makes my lips look fuller and more proportional.

Step 1. As usual, prime your eyes with your favorite primer to prevent the makeup from creasing. Then, apply NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk over your upper lid and blend it out evenly. Take it out a bit in the outer corner since we are going to make a cateye. 

Step 2. Take a vibrant red eyeshadow (or any color actually) and pack it onto your upper lid and extend it into a cateye. You can use Scotch tape if you want but it doesn't have to be that neat so I won't bother to do so. 

Step 3. Blend the red out (very lightly in the outer edge, since we still want it a bit sharp there). With a soft black eyeliner pencil line your eye (and your waterline). Extend it along the bottom edge of the red cat eye.  

Step 4. Using a small brush blend out the eyeliner pencil and then set it with black eyeshadow. 

Step 5. Highlight under your eyebrows with a matte white eyeshadow. Fill in your brows with a black eyeshadow. If your natural brow color is quite fair you want to be careful and maybe wipe some black off of your brush before applying it onto your brows. Otherwise, it might look a bit harsh, like the brows of a cartoon character. 
Apply black mascara to your top and bottom lashes. 

Step 6. On your left eye draw a line with the black eyeliner pencil, downwards. On the end of the line draw a heart shape with a white eyeliner pencil. The reason we draw it in white first is that the white eyeliner is easier to remove in case we draw it wrongly that the black one. 

Step 7. Fill in the heart shape with white eyeliner (NYX Jumbo pencil) and then, using a small brush, pack on some red eyeshadow on top of it. 

Step 8. Draw around the edges of the heart with liquid eyeliner. Liquid eyeliner leaves no room for mistakes so be careful! 
Apply some glitter to the heart (optional) and a pair of false bottom eyelashes. The eyes are now done! :)

Step 9. Erase your lips with a creme concealer. Draw the shape of the lips with an eyeliner pencil.

Step 10. Blend out the black, inwards towards the center of the lips. 

Step 11. Fill in the lips with a red lipstick. I've used Russian red by M.A.C. and on top of that Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Cherry tart by e.l.f. 

So, that's all for this blogpost! I hope that all of you will have a lovely weekend and that I will be able to do a blogpost again soon. I'm thinking about doing a look inspired by the evil queen in the "Snow white and the huntsman"-movie that hasn't had premiere yet.
