Madam Noire d'Antoinette

Hello makeup-lovers and fellow spooks! :)

Today I'm actually doing a tutorial, which is something that I haven't done in a long while now. The inspiration for this look comes from Marie Antoinette and a contest that Lime Crime is having on I'm not going to enter the contest since I did this look a little bit late but it was a great theme to create makeup on. :)

Oh, and another thing; I've been creating a lot of jewelry lately and here you can see a hair-piece and a choker that I made. :) I will probably put some of them up for sale on etsy sometime in a not-so-far-away future. I think homemade jewelry is a great thing to use to make an outfit unique. :)

With that said, let's move on to the look!

Oh, I realized you can't really see the hair-piece that good on any of the pics. :/

And here the little pendant on the necklace has been turned the wrong way. XD


Step 1. Start by priming your eyes. I don't have a primer at the moment so I'm using Studio Finish Concealer by M.A.C. It works quite good as a primer but not optimal. And yes, I've shaved off most of my eyebrows. And I love it, although it looks kind of grotesque. ;)

Step 2. On the inner part of your lid, apply the Jumbo Pencil in Milk by NYX and blend it out. On top of Milk, apply the champagne color Shimma shimma by Makeup Geek. Leave the part underneath the eye white.

Step 3. On the outer corner, apply Poison plum by Sugarpill, and blend well. Also apply it beneath your lower lashline.

Step 4. I've met so many people that find it hard to use eyeliner, and they usually end up with something like this. This is how the liner looks before blending. ;)

Step 5. Using a M.A.C. #266 brush I've blended out the sharp, rickety lines drawn with Smolder (eye kohl, by M.A.C.). On top of smolder I've applied Corrupt by Makeup Geek, which is a matte black.

Step 6. Also using the #266 brush, I've drawn on the eyebrows using Poison plum (Sugarpill) on the inner part and Corrupt (Makeup Geek) on the outer, and then blending them together.

Step 7. On the inner part of the lower lid, apply Buttercupcake by Sugarpill.

Step 8. Finish the eye makeup with black mascara and a pair of falsies. These falsies are #28 by Red Cherry.

Step 9. On the lips I've used a Smolder by M.A.C. as lip-liner but left a part in the middle of the lips untouched. Apply a black lipstick on top of the lip-liner. On the untouched part, apply NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and on top of that Poison plum. As a highlight I applied a little more Milk on the center of my lower lip. Blend the purple and the black together.

Step 10. On my cheeks I've used a warm pink blush from e.l.f. It is called Glow I think...

I hope this tutorial was helpful!

Have a nice day everyone! :)
