Tutorial: Emilie Autumn


Halloween is coming, and I've been asked to do several tutorials, including zombie, vampire, witch, Elvira, Moricia Addams... And Emilie Autumn.

First I want to say, that to be real honest, I have no idea who Emilie Autumn is. I guess she has something to do with music, but unfortunately I'm  not familiar with it. Maybe I should :D

But I googled some pictures of her looks, and here's what I did:

And here's the original:

So you need:
  • Primer
  • Light foundation
  • Deep dark/ burgundy base
  • Red eyeshadow
  • Black eyeshadow
  • Black eyeliner / gel liner
  • Mascara
  • Individual false lashes
  • Red lipstick
  • Wig cap
  • Red wig
  • Couple dreadlocks
  • Colorfull hair pins etc

Here's my face with out anything:
Then primer, I used L'oreal Studio Secrets:

Then a bit foundation that you would normally use. I mixed some white crease paint from Grimas to my normal foundation:

Then eyebrows. Emilie has quite natural looking brows, so don't pick anything too dark:

Base your lids with something dark-ish, I used Michael Todd's Cream Eyeshadow in Michael Todd:

Then some red eyeshadow over the base:
I used Sugarpill Love+:

Then some black eyeshadow to inner and outer corners:

I used Sugarpill Bulletproof:

Do also a lining to upper lashline with black:

Then the lower lashlines:

Smudge black eyeliner / black eyeshadow on them. Also line your waterline with black:

Smudge lower lashlines more:
I mean A LOT:

Then I added mascara, and drew the little heart with black gel liner:

I filled the heart with red lipliner:

Then I drew some "lashes" lower lashline:

Then I added couple real individual false lashes on lower lashline:

Then I lined my lips with black gel liner. Only the middle part, of course:

.. and I filled it with red lipstick (Illmasqua Faust):

Then wig cap:

And then the wig, and look is done!

  21. Ms. Jangsara,

    I've been admiring your skill for months and finally have decided to post a comment. All I can say is that your skill has blown me away. You've inspired me in so many ways. I've even blogged about you and posted links to you. I wish there was a way to put in words how amazing your makeup skills are. Please continue posting!


    PS. I'm a big fan of Emilie Autumn!

  22. I stumbled upon this and I think you did an excellent job capturing Emilie Autumn's look, but I was wondering where you got your red wig? It seems like fairly good quality and with little garish shine.

  23. love this make up .. thanks for step by step pictures .. xoxo
