My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Day 10 – Black

ruflag

 

I have done many versions of black makeup for various occasions. Bold black makeups for going out. Grungey or gothic black makeups for rock/metal gigs and events. Scary black makeups for Halloween. You name it. So if there is one single kind of makeup that I can easily do anywhere anytime, it’s got to be this one.

???????????????????????????????

The face makeup today is the usual one with a couple of minor deviations, the first one there being no blush at all. A good black makeup is when you look your palest! For the same reason I am applying a little bit of concealer, which has a lighter colour than my foundation, all over the face, on top of the foundation – but not too much: a pale face is ok, a Marilyn Manson face is not.

???????????????????????????????

As for the eyes, the first step is to fully contour them with a black eye pencil.

Then I draw a line with an eyeliner, on top of the pencil, along the upper lash grow line.

Using some black eyeshadow from the 3 Couleurs Smokey palette by Dior I cover the whole mobile eyelid and most of the area above it. The eyeshadow is rather transparent, and no matter how many layers you apply, it won’t become opaque.

So, to make the eye contour darker I am using the black colour from my Coastal Scents palette and applying it all over the mobile eyelid and also under the bottom lid.

A generous layer of mascara is applied as a final touch.

For the lips, I am trying to find a really dark and deep colour on my Bundle Monster palette, but then suddenly decide to go a bit crazy and get out the jar with my black Inglot lip gloss!

???????????????????????????????

And that’s what the end result is like! No matter what anyone might think, I know it turned out damn good!
