Tutorial: Sailor Chibimoon Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Finally, Chibiusa! And with this, I'm done with my Sailor Moon tutorials series! Let me know if you want more tutorials like these! I'm using Nyx's Milk, Notoriously Morbid's Snow Queen's Return, a custom eyeshadow and Esqido's lashes in Bic City Lights!

I nearly didn't do Chibiusa because I personally find her freaking annoying and bratty. She may look like a child, but she's 900 years old. The fact that she still behaves like an entitled, insufferable brat is a testament to Usagi & Mamoru's terrible parenting. /rant

Ok, I'm going to stop ranting and get on with the tutorial...

Here's the full face! Lips is Fyrinnae's Phantasma!

Tutorial: Sailor Moon Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Ok, I know it's kinda weird I'm doing Sailor Moon close to last since well...she's supposedly the main character, but SCREW USAGI. I found her so freaking annoying. I guess I'm supposed to appreciate how she matures over the series and what a great friend she is, but guess what? All the other sailors are already mature, on top of being great friends and being talented in at least ONE FREAKING THING. What's your talent Usagi? Whining and pining over Mamoru? Come on! What qualifies her to be a leader? Being born into it? Oh, and let's remember she was so irresponsible in her past life, she killed herself because her boyfriend died. You're supposed to inherit the throne you melodramatic  moron!

Ok, I need to stop ranting. Here's the look:

 I'm using Mad Labs' Pyrite & Notoriously Morbid's Morgana, as well as Jeffree Star's Drug Lord and Nyx's Milk. Lashes are @esqido's Big City Nights! Here's the tutorial:

And the full face! Lips are Kat Von D's Bauhaus!

Tutorial: Sailor Uranus Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

I wanted to do this tutorial earlier because Haruka's one of my favourites, but unfortunately, I accidentally erased the pictures from my computer and had to go searching for it in my external hard drive. >.<

I didn't want to use fake lashes for this look, because it just feels weird adding fluttery lashes to Haruka. Plus, a bottom heavy look makes me feel badass. I went to work with this and felt badass the whole day, so I really need to channel Haruka more often. I always thought Haruka is so freaking hot. Michiru is was the girl I wanted to be with, but Haruka is the girl I wish I could be....maybe because I have non-existent driving skills (don't tell my husband I finally admit my driving's crap, because making sure you're always right totally makes a healthy marriage...). I'm using Urban Decay's eyeliner in Chaos, Make Up Store's Pollution, and Blanche Neige's Seashells.

Yellow lips because Haruka don't care! Isn't Limnit's Between the lines gorgeous??

Tutorial: Sailor Saturn Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Ok! So it's Sailor Saturn/Hotaru time! I was a bit of an emo teenager, so I like Hotaru when she was all mysterious, emo and possibly evil. So here's the look I came up with, and it looks super dramatic, but I promise it's so very wearable! Makes your eyes look huge too!

Here's the tutorial! I'm using Wet n Wild's studio eyeshadow palette in Quartz Center! Lashes are Esqido's Big City Lights!

So here's the full face! I just had a facial that involves extraction, so my face is a bit of a mess XD

Some people tell me they want to get the double eyelid surgery because their eyes look like "2 black holes" when they close their eyes. Stare, stare into the abyss....

Tutorial: Sailor Mars Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Next up is Rei! ! I just love her sass. Rei's portrayed as the typical Japanese beauty,and I have to admit I got the inspiration of this look from traditional Maiko makeup. The maikos got it right...this look is so flattering on Asian eyes! I'm using My Pretty Zombie's mNg no. 2 and Ojo De Gato, and Nyx's Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk!

Here's the tutorial!

And here's the full face!

Tutorial: Sailor Jupiter Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup! (a.k.a the Lazy Ombré Liner)

Makoto's turn! I liked how tough she is, but at the same time, I was also annoyed by how lovesick she gets. Come on, Makoto! You're way better than that! If he's not into you, who cares? You're gorgeous, tough, and an amazing cook. I'd date you!

So this is my tutorial for the Sailor Jupiter inspired look, a.k.a., the Lazy Ombre Liner, which is still my most popular tutorial ever. This time, I created a YouTube tutorial too!

Tutorial: Sailor Venus Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Ok...I screwed up and forgot to upload my tutorials on my blog before I deleted the pics off my phone. So now I have to skip to the tutorial for the Haruka and Rei inspired looks, and go straight to the Minako inspired look. My bad. >.<

So here's the pictorial! I'm using My Pretty Zombie's Bear & Scurvy!

I know I promised with would be wearable, but I couldn't resist adding a swirly helix liner at the end...

Here are the full face! Lips is Kat Von D's Bauhaus with MPZ's Bear dotted in the center!

Tutorial: Sailor Pluto Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

This is my tutorial for the Setsuna inspired look! This cut crease tutorial is definitely more challenging, and may take some practice!

1. Apply primer, then draw a wing-shaped line with an eye pencil where you want the crease to be. For monolids, I suggest a small crease that looks more like a natural Asian crease. Apply translucent powder above this line so blending's easier later.

2. Blend a purple eyeshadow above the line, smudging it out.

3. With a pencil brush, blend a darker purple eyeshadow into where the line was. 

4. Grab a concealer and use it to draw a wing shape underneath all the eyeshadow.

5. Apply yellow eyeshadow to 2/3rds of this bottom blank space.

6. Apply brown eyeshadow to the remaining and blend it into the yellow

7. Line it any way you want, and clean up the bottom using a cotton pad soaked in eye make up remover.

8. Line the outer 2/3rds of your lower lashline with purple eyeshadow

9. Use mascara/falsies and that's it!

Tutorial: Nude Makeup with 7 products only!

Ok, so this is one of my favourite work appropriate looks, and it's so easy to do! Definitely beginner friendly!

* Amazing Cosmetics’ concealer in Fair Golden
* IT Cosmetics CC Cream in Light
* Esqido’s lashes and lash glue

Tutorial: Flattering Monolid Makeup for Day AND Night

Ok, I love colour-shifting eyeshadows, and this is one of my favourite ways of showing them off! This is a really simple look that's perfect for a night out, but you can also use it during the day if you have hooded monolids since monolids can hide a lot of drama!

Tutorial: Sailor Neptune Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Next one on my Sailor Moon inspired wearable looks! Michiru!

I had the biggest crush on her because I think violinists are so hot. I tried learning the violin and had to quit because I couldn't stand the sound of myself practicing, so I have tons of respect for talented violinists. I'm kinda upset her relationship with Haruka keeps getting censored. 

This one is a wayy more simple look than what I normally do, and closer to Asian beauty trends. I figured I should challenge myself by doing a look influenced by Asian beauty trends every now and then. 

Here's the tutorial!

1. Apply primer, and apply loose powder on the top half of your lids. The loose powder is the key to getting a smooth blend.

2. Apply silver eyeshadow to about 2/3rds of your lids, making sure it peeks above your eyeline.

3. Apply teal eyeshadow to the remaining outer 1/3.

4. Grab a fluffy blending brush and just keep blending until you can't see anymore hard edges.

5. [OPTIONAL] User a regular liquid liner, or a dark green eyeshadow mixed with Illamasqua's Sealing Gel, and tightline your eyes. I say this is optional since, if you have hooded monolids like me, only the outer corner shows up. So I normally don't bother, but if your monolids aren't hooded or if you have a small crease, this looks good. Go with what works for your eyes! Apply lashes/mascara.

6. Line your lower lashline with the silver eyeshadow and that's it!

Here's the full face...I did the Korean style ombre lips using Face Shop's lip tint in Bloody Red!

Tutorial: Sailor Mercury Inspired Wearable Eye Makeup!

Thanks to work, I've been too lazy to do fun looks during the weekdays. I thought I should challenge myself by setting a theme I have to complete, and I decided to go with Sailor Moon, the first ever manga I fell in love with and got me hooked on mangas & anime. The catch is that all the looks have to be wearable AND I need to do a pictorial for them so everyone else who's craving a pop of colour at work/school can try them out too!

So first up, Ami a.k.a Sailor Mercury! I did Ami first because I love her the most...she gave me hope that nerdy, socially awkward kids like me could have friends too XD

Anyway, here's the tutorial! I'm using Mad Lab's Blue Zircon, Eccentric Cosmetics' Fish Tank Amusement, NYX's JEP in Milk, Backstreet Makeup Co's Usky, and Wardah's white eyeshadow! Lashes are Esqido's Lash Named Desire!

1. Apply primer

2. Apply a light blue eyeshadow to 2/3rds of your lids, making sure it peeks above your "eye line".

3. Apply a dark blue eyeshadow on the remaining 1/3 of your lids, going higher as you go upwards to make a sail-like shape.

4. Grab a blue eyeshadow, dab it in between the dark blue & light blue eyeshadow, and blend it outwards. In 4b, I've outlined where I placed the eyeshadow. Some people prefer putting the middle colour right after the lightest colour, and you can totally do this if it's your preference. Personally, I find that with colour gradients, I get a smooth gradient faster when I put the middle colour last. If you're still struggling with getting a smooth gradient, this may help.

5. Grab a cotton pad, soak it in eye makeup remover, fold it in half, and align it along the same angle as the angle where your outer lower lashline starts to slope up. Swipe up and down so you get a straight, flat edge instead of a wing.

6. Line your lower lashline with a white eyeliner, and go over that line with a white eyeshadow to prevent smudging. Don't worry if this is messy.

7. Clean up your lower lashline with concealer while applying your undereye concealer, apply mascara/falsies, and you're done!

Kinda hesitating sharing the full face because I have this MASSIVE cystic acne on my forehead, and it made me look perpetually stressed. On the positive side, my husband was extra attentive all day because he thought I was stressing out.

But screw acne...I'll share the full face just so you can see how this look looks zoomed out. I have Jeffree Star's Posh Spice (sorry) on my lips!
