FOTD: Bold Look- My take on Cora's Sailor Moon

Hi ladies,

I usually recreate some of Cora's (Vintageortacky) looks in the privacy of my own room. I love to play with colours and do extravagant and crazy looks. Cora is THE mother of amazing shock-colour looks and she explains things so well in her tutorials. So I had to try this one too!

But this time I took the plunge and photographed the results to share them with you.

This is my take on Cora's Sailor Moon look. I had to do some tweaks here and there as my eye shape is very different from Cora's. I'm very happy with the result.

For those who don't know Sailor Moon is a Japanese cartoon. One of those manga things that I never watched in my life and never will. Cora did an amazing series of YT videos featuring a lot of the characters and designing make-up looks. 







And these are the lips- very red!
I wish I had videoed this one. I'm very proud of myself :)
the only thing was I so wished I had her contacts! The are fabulous. 

And no, this is not a very wearable look.

Products used:

FACE
-Make-up For Ever HD foundation in 145 mixed with Chanel Mat Lumiere in 40 beige. 
-Harmony Powder Blush by Mac (to contour)
-A red lip stain used as cheek tint

EYES
-Black eyeshadow to cut my crease
-Kryolan Supracolor in white (as base for the yellow shadow)
-Buttercupcake e/s by Sugarpill (insane yellow used on the lid)
-Obnoxious e/s from the Bad Girl paletee from Sleek (a deep blue used on top of the black crease)
-AMC loose e/s in 58 by INGLOT (metallic blue used on top of the darker blue to blend and on the lower lash line)
-White e/s on the brow bone
-Maybelline gel liner in black (upper lash line, tight line, lower lash line and to define the crease)
-False lashes
-Brown e/s on the brows (VERY badly applied)

LIPS
-Random red lip with a little bit of gold pigment on the centre


This was really funny. You can totally map the eye look in this cotton pad.
I hate to remove looks I love when I'm just at home I need to get back to my boring house work.
