Elemental Series: Fire

So while attempting to come up with a theme for a series of make up looks i settled on Sailor Moon. Remember? It was a cartoon that i practically grew up on. Anyway, after deciding on a theme i set to work on a Sailor Venus inspired look. She was always my favorite. Something went wrong though. The look was to hot and fiery.  Yeah, Venus's main color was orange and her main spiel was love. Love is passion, passion is fiery. I could  have made it work but why stretch the look when i can just change the theme? So that is how i came to the elements. Like i said this look is hot.

How To:

  • Always start by applying an eye shadow primer. 
  • Apply an eye shadow base. White would have been ok for this one but i opted for gold to give my red tones a kick.
  • Pack a yellow eyeshadow on to the lid. Just the lid corner to corner and lash line to crease.
  • With an orange eye shadow trace out the shape you want then create a cut crease.
  • Apply a red eye shadow in the crease and outer corner of the eye. 
  • Now quick! Blend as though your life depended on it.
  • Add a dark brown eye shadow to the outer half of the crease and along the outer half of the lower lash line.
  • Once again blend blend blend.
  • Apply a shimmery light yellow to the inner corner and along the inner half of the lower lash line.
  • Apply a matte white to the brow bone.
  • Use a black eye liner for the water line and tight lining.
  • Prime and curl lashes before adding mascara and thats all folks.
  • Apply a lip liner.
  • Apply a red lipstick.
  • Using a dark red eye shadow fill in the outer corners of the lips. (This step is completely optional. I didnt really like the lipstick i had for this so i made it work with some eye shadow.)
