I’m sure you all know where the inspiration for this look came from, and if you don’t then clearly you haven’t heard of wonders that are Illamasqua‘s Toxic Nature collection~
The hardest part was ensuring both eyes were even, which still didn’t turn out exactly the way I had hoped, still not too bad for a first go. Please note that besides the first and last photo, I’ve digitally removed my eye brows to enhance the overall look~ I wanted to leave them in for some of the photos to give you an idea what it looks like naturally.
Hope you enjoy the look 😀

After primer and foundation, use a powder foundation to set as we want as much coverage as possible. Next sculpt your face, don’t be afraid to use a heavy hand here, we really want the look to be dramatic. Use a bright magenta powder blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend, and then top off with a highlighter. Contour your nose with the bronzer.
This particular step of most tutorials is essentially the same, but what differs is the amount of product and pressured used. Using this same technique you can get a variety of looks just but adding or reducing the amount of makeup used.
Coat your eyebrows with wax to flatten them, then cover up with concealer so that it almost appears like you don’t have any brows.
Prime your lids, then take a black gel liner and start to outline the design around your eyes. For the black droplets under my eyes I used a liquid eyeliner for added intensity. Randomly draw tiny spots all over your cheeks.
Fill in the area on your lids with a purple gel liner for colour intensity then cover with purple eye shadow. Next fill in the area above with a pastel green cream pigment. Fill in your lower lash line with the same pigment. Take a dark brown eye shadow and draw in the brows. Add a tiny bit of hot pink eye shadow to the inner corner of your eyes.
Retrace the black gel liner with a black liquid eyeliner, and heavily line your upper lash line.
Curl your lashes and apply a thick coat of black mascara, then apply the longest biggest set of black false lashes you have.
Fill in your lips with a tan cream eye shadow, then take a brown gel liner and line your lips and create the shape you see in the photos. Take a touch of a pinkish red cream blush and dab it on the centre of your lips.
Photo below is with half the look and half without any makeup! I thought the contrast was really interesting 🙂
