Dark Giesha Luis Royo Inspired

Luis Royo has some dark and sometimes disturping images, but they are never the less very beauiful. A lot of his work features woman wearing not much, but they are often strone worrors.
A lot of them have strange body and serface peircings, and tattoos and markings as well. I think they are really beautiful though.
This is my take on one of the Dark Moon 2010 images. You can see the one I used above.
I don't know if that flash of read down the side was there, but I wanted to add it in, because other wise the look is very black and white. You can decide for youself what you would like to do. I think it would be cool to add a bit of red just above the eye and at the top of the brow from the arch to the end. That to me would give it more of a Maiko feel.
From the research I have done, Maiko tend to wear more red than a Geisha.

Cheap Bites

One of my wonderful friends, loaned me the use of her neck for this one. Thanks Steph!
So as you may know, last year I did a video on how to do vampire bites using Nose and Scare Wax and fake blood. But not everyone can get those, so I was going to do a video on how to do the same look on the cheap.
I didn't have time to do it last year, so it was one of the first videos I filmed this year.
It's pretty easy to do, and I think for a night out it's probably better than using the nose and scare wax, because than can move throughout the night as the wax stays soft.

Products Used:
Eyelash From the cheapest set of lashes I could find.
In the top bite I used Raven Red by Revlon
In the bottom bite I used 508a by wet n wild
(you can't see clearly the difference it makes in the photo's though I'm affriad)
Liquid eyeliner by Revlon
All of the eye shadow I used where from my Coastal Sense, 42 matte and Blush Palette. I used a mix of different pinks, with a touch of yellow, and purple.
Red Diva 024 by Rimmal
A red lip gloss (I'm sorry I don't know the name, it is one that has been kicking around in my bag for a while and the name has warn off)
Any clear lip gloss on top.

Black Widow Spider Make-up

Halloween look number One for 2010.
Acutally I wanted to do this look last year, but I just didn't have time.

Whatda ya think?

Hope you like it! You damn well better because it gave me the creeps to do it. When I had the lashes on under my eyes, I kept thinking there was something 8 legged on my face. And when then when I had to look for pic's of a black widow spider to put on my finger, I was kept feeling something crawling down my spine, and ever dark spot I saw I'd jump at. Hahaha I'm such a wuss! :D

Here's what I used:

Painterly paint pot by Mac

Red by Star Gazer

Vitamin E Face Mist, by Body Shop

Shark Skin, Shade stick by Mac

#40 (black) Loose Dust by Napoleon
A glitter Gel, or lip balm

Midnight Star by Splash mixed with some Red Sparks! by TKB (both glitters)

Brow and Liner Kit, 02 by Body Shop

Blacktrack fluidline by Mac

Lash Stiletto by Maybelline

Individual lashes

Spidery lashes!

Soft Gold for Red heads and Blue Eyes

So! Like I was saying, this look is for a friend of mine who has a very classic red head compelction (woops spelling!).
She is very very fair, with a gaw-jus ginger, almost Honey Blonde colloured hair.
We were talking about make-up in our dance class the other day, and she said that she really didn't know what to do when it came to make-up.
She had tried going into makeup counters before at places like Mac, and some of the different makeup houses in David Jones and Myre, and the makeup advisers always had really dark makeup, and tried to do dark looks on her, which she just didn't feel confident wearing (she doesn't normally wear any makeup at all).
So this is a very soft gental look with her in mind. Once you have more confidance, and are feeling alittle bolder there is so much you can do!
I forgot to say in the video that for very fair skin, and blonde/red head complection it would look nicer to use a brown mascara instead of black, but I don't have one, and just automaticly said "apply black mascara". Use brown!

So for this look I used:
Paiterly by Mac
Body Shop Shimmer Cube 06 - Lightest shade
Jardin Aires by Mac
Soft Gold by Inglot (I will get the number, but I am at an intnernet cafe at the moment. Internet being hooked up on Tuesday!)
Woodwinked by Mac
A very small amount of the Copper colour in the Shimmer Cube 06 by Body shop, lightly swept accross the lid to warm up a touch more.
Brown eye definer by Ben Nye
Small amount of black liquid liner (I wouldn't recomment using this for very fair/redhead people, but I wanted to add it on for myself)
Mascara - I'd suggest using brown, but I used a black on myself because I don't have a brown.
