Tutorial: Broken Doll

Still more Halloween looks... :D
Here's a broken doll tutorial: 

First use light/white base for your face if you want. Also put on your contacts, if you're planning to wear them. Mine are Diamond Blue contacts from bornprettystore.com:

Shape the broken areas with black pencil or such:

Darken the broken areas so that they look 3d:

Add blush, I used quite a lot to make the doll look. I also used nude eyeshadow to do a bit of shaping around nose and eyes:

Then the eye makeup. I went with using black on the outer corners, but you can use what ever style you prefer:

Then mascara and big false lashes, mine are from http://eyecandylens.com/:

Then I added short lines under the eye:

Finally do brows, lips and wig and stuff, and ready!

Tutorial: MAC Twisted Sweet Savage facechart

This is a tutorial based on MAC's halloween facechart:

If you are pale, start with few shades darker foundation what you normally use:

Start the mask by shaping the "ornaments" with light/white pencil:

Then use darker pencil (light brown, brown) pencil to shade the ornaments:

Use small brush to apply light brown or brown  eyeshadow to make the ornaments to pop more:

Apply some light/ white eyeshadow to the the light parts to make them pop more too:

Add more brown and white, until you're satisfied:

Then apply eye makeup, I lined my eyes with dark brown pencil, and then blended them with dark brown eyeshadow:

Finally I added mascara and lipstick:

And the look is done!

Tutorial: Purple and bright green

I finally made something I can show :D
I've been struggling with my makeup lately, everything looks too bright or dark or slutty or messy, so I've been using a lot of just mascara.
But here's something bright finally, enjoy!

Look is done using Manly 120 palette:

First of all, use primer, and then apply white base to whole lid:

Then use a flat brush to apply the deepest green to outer corner:

Then apply the bright green to the middle of the lid:

Then the lightest green to inner corner:

Use a crease brush to apply black to crease:

Then apply purple(s) above the black:

Then use light color to blens the edges and highlight:

Add some black to crease with blending brush, so the edges aren't too hard:

Then extend the purple to the lower lashline:

Apply black liner to waterline:

..and finally to upper lashline too, and add mascara:

Add false lashes (mine are Elise #201), and the look is done:
