Hey guys, I have an exciting post for you all today, so I hope you enjoy it! A couple of weeks ago I got together with Charmaine to create a pretty spontaneous collaboration, which developed over our mutual love for F(x) and their new song 'Red Light'. If you've seen it, let me know what you thought in the comments^^ But this isn't a review oh no, myself and four other beautiful bloggers have worked together to bring you a series of makeup looks/tutorials inspired by each of the members. I chose to do Sulli's makeup, despite the fact our hair and features are completely different~ I just liked the mysterious and sultry look her makeup had, and I wanted to try and recreate that on myself.
Here are the other girls and their blogs so go check them out too!
Charmaine - Krystal
April - Victoria
Also, the plan for this post was to do a tutorial alongside, but that didn't go very well at all>.< Basically it took me a few attempts to be happy with my makeup, and when I was happy it was a result of literally just blending a bunch of dark colours together until it looked right - no method involved whatsoever! Since the focus of the whole look is on the eyes, I decided it would be better to leave out the tutorial and just share the end result.
If you do have any specific questions about products, tools or techniques I'll be more than happy to answer them in the comments~ so don't hesitate to leave me one! Thanks for reading guys^^
|Here's her teaser photo that I was trying to recreate|
As you can probably tell our eyes are differently shaped, and I found that if I covered my whole lid in black shadow and eyeliner like Sulli, it looked pretty comical, but this is an 'inspired' look so I hope you guys can appreciate that haha>.<
Basically the trick to the eye makeup is to use a mixture of deep purples and blacks, putting on a little bit at a time and blending like your life depends on it. I found going straight in with the black was messy and very hard to blend~ so be patient and go slowly!
