One night in Gotham

Hello makeup-lovers and fellow spooks! 

A couple of days ago I went to the cinema to see the new Batman movie. I'm not very surprised that it was a fantastic movie but it was far better than I could have imagined! It's full of action and great characters that are portrayed by brilliant actors and actresses.

I've been looking forward to this movie a long time so I wanted to do a special makeup-look for this occasion. :) So I came up with a dark cat eye with a pattern, that is inspired by a look by this amazing makeup-artist: http://nireyna.livejournal.com/
Unfortunately, her blog is in Russian (I think...) which made it hard for me to find the specific look that I was inspired by.

To fade out the black smokey eye and add some subtle shimmer I used the grayish brown eyeshadow Moondust by Makeup Geek. It's a perfect background for the forestlike pattern. :)

To achieve the sharp wings I used Scotch tape, which I first placed on the back of my hand to reduce the stickiness.

I admit that the teal liner on the inner part of the lid wasn't the best idea, but I don't think it's super-horrible either. Next time, I'll definitely skip it though. 

If you don't have the patience to draw this pattern then you can simply use this look without it as a regular winged smokey eye. :)

I guess that's all for now. :) Thank you for stopping by and I hope you liked the look!
