A little while back Siera asked whether I could do her makeup for a shoot she was planning for a character created by the artist Sylvia Ji. I wanted to test out the makeup on myself first to get a feel for the look, this is my second attempt which I stupidly started at 10pm at night and finished at 12:15am on a weeknight 😛 So I didn’t manage to do as much detailing as I had originally wanted since I was craving sleep instead :/
Given time and a third attempt I’d confident I could do a much better job, fingers crossed when Siera arranges a time for the shoot she’ll look many more times amazing 😀

Prime your face, and then apply white foundation all over the face, neck and upper chest. I’d considered doing the shoulders too if you’re planning a real shoot.
The rest of the look is actually very straight forward, simply copy step by step each detail from the original artwork to your face. I primarily used a black gel liner for all the black patterns and used a purple gel liner for the finer details (though it seems to have photographed black) Make sure you have a fine eyeliner brush and be prepared to constantly have to clean out your brush from the white foundation build up.
For the eyes, after placing the gel liner I would set it with a black eye shadow to prevent creasing.
For the yellow I used a yellow cream eye shadow then put on a yellow powder eye shadow to intensify the colour.
I don’t think there is much else I can say about the look tutorial wise, but if you have a specific question let me know in the comments~
