Not to diss black sabbath, but I look horrible. The only make-up i can use is the classic banana contouring with black or brown. If i wear just light eyeshadow, I look ugly, and if trying to do for example a smokey eye, it looks really harsh and stupid. cos there always needs to be the white/very light colour in the inner corner of the eye. Have tried it with brown also, doesent make a differense really which is strange cos I have dark hair, dark brows and quite dark skin (grey/blue/green eyes). And when trying to add liner to the inner eyelid it makes my eyes water so much that it ruins the whole makeup, still, i dont think my eyes are very sensitive.
I have this rock event coming, and i would like to look a little bit naughty for the night. (Dont judge me, its only for this one night, but i think jodie marsh has got the kind of rock look that i would like to use for the event..)
I just cant believe that smokey eye &dark colours arent for everyone, but dont know what could I do?August 18, 2012 at 7:48 pm #187077
I’m not sure what advice I can give, but would you be able to post a picture?
It would be easier to help if you try some sort of Jodie Marsh look and show us how it looks. Maybe someone can give you pointers if we can see what you’re doing!August 20, 2012 at 5:34 am #187324
Haha omg I will do.. after that gonna participate ozzy osbourne look-a-like contest =)
To prove that I dont look Ozzy all the time (after watching the photo im not so sure anymore..) im gonna add a photo of my “normal” dark makeup and maybe you can tell that why does the smokey eye where is dark all over the eye go wrong.. (needed to cut down the picture size, put you see all that is relevant..)
And to be clear on what i would like to do:
Going to add the ozzy makeup tonight or tomorrow and post the pic.. Could have made just on post though but when I inserted the pictures already just cant bother to write the thing and add the photos all over again..August 20, 2012 at 2:49 pm #187383
Can I just say that I don’t think your makeup looks as bad as you think it does. Just a couple top tips…
* I think you can bring the shadow in even further on the lower lashline. You can still wear a lighter colour near the tearduct, but not as much as you’re doing, if that makes sense.
* You have a little more lid space to work with. I think you can bring the dark colour a little further up, to just above the crease. You’ll still have some space on the browbone for a highlight.
* Eyeliner… Which one were you using in the waterline? It may not be that you can’t wear eyeliner in the waterline, just that the one you’re using may be the wrong one for you.August 21, 2012 at 7:02 am #187474
That picture from me wasnt the actual ozzy osbourne yet That is how I normally wear make-up, and the pictures down below are the ones that im going to aim for and then post a picture of me and you can see what I mean telling it looks terrifying..
The eyeliner in the inner lid is not liquid eyeliner ofc! I use black makeup pen and sometimes have tried I think what was maybellines gel liner.. The gel liner stayed a little bit longer, but not much.August 21, 2012 at 10:27 am #187499
I just read a post in makeup chat about using waterproof mascara as an eyeliner on the lash line and to tight line. This trick may also work in the waterline. It’s worth a try. Just make sure that your eyes aren’t sensitive to the waterproof mascara.August 22, 2012 at 12:42 am #187623
What about waterproof make-up pen?
And here (s)he comes, Ozzy well and alive!
Here were the ones that I hadnt used a liner yet.
Here I have liner on the lower inner-lid. Compared to the upper ones, I think it looks much better because I have these really really up-popping eyes (dunno the english word for that) like a goldfish and the liner makes the eyes look a bit smaller. (Though Ozzy is still here..)
And in these I added also liner tho the inner corners. I bet that raccoons would welcome me into their furry little families…
I havent taken these kinds of “face pictures” before and I can tell many ishues. Thought that the dark hair would fit to dark make-up but it makes it look more harsh and presents me almost gothic, a neutral(?) lighter brown would fit better. Also I cannot figure the face shape and do the highlighting and contouring in the right spots. Last thing is the bulky fish eyes, they pop out in a terrible way in those pictures..
Any suggestions? =)August 22, 2012 at 2:43 pm #187666
I like the look on you. You big eyes and I think they are gorgeous in the smokey black look. I wish I had those eyes.August 24, 2012 at 12:37 am #188031
We can swap if you like =) I would never go public with this make-up!August 24, 2012 at 10:54 am #188073
Lol. Try using liner only in the waterline on the bottom part of your eye. That may make a difference in making your eyes appear a little smaller. I hope that helps.
Btw, what eyeliner are you using for your waterline?August 24, 2012 at 12:49 pm #188084
I think you’re just not used to the look, but it really does look great on you, but I also see where you are coming from.
With the pictures that you posted I would do a different version of smokey: darkest shade on the lid up to the crease, then a transition color right where your dark color ends to blend it out, then highlight the brow bone. I have 2 smokey examples on my site, for a review I did, it looks more subtle if your bring it right up to the crease, if you want it more dramatic go above the crease.
I just remembered I actually posted a look on show your face also using the above smokey technique, its called black cherry…
Another smokey version I like is keeping the dark color on the outer half of the eye, and blend a lighter color (highlight) as you go inward.
Good luck!August 24, 2012 at 1:53 pm #188085
I have tryed to line the waterline with all kinds of things.. Makeup-pen, kohl, eyeshadow and gel liner. They all smudge, and I dont know why my eyes water from lining the inner lid because I havent ever thought that my eyes are sensitive. Next im going to buy waterproof make-up pen, kohl or gel liner.. Could you recommend any?
And thanx delstephanie for the advice! I havent even thought putting dark colour to the moving lid and blend it upwards from the crease with other, little lighter color.. (I understood that this is what you ment…) I thought I have tried to make-up with black in any single way there is, though that isnt even very uncommon way to do it Must try it immediately..August 24, 2012 at 2:29 pm #188088
If you feel like black is too harsh you can also do a dark grey color, or maybe a dark blue and leave the black to outline your eyes.
About the watery eyes, maybe its just a reflex, like when I put eyeliner or mascara on people they’ll blink repeatedly and their eyes will water as well. Practice lining your eyes on a regular basis until you get used to it, you can do a brown or even a color close to your skin tone for everyday practice. I honestly believe it will go away with practice.August 25, 2012 at 1:12 pm #188221
I swear by ingot gel liner. It’s a bit on the dry side. So it doesn’t work as well to line the lash line. But it works well for the waterline and for tightlining. It isn’t fool proof on the waterline, but I don’t think any liners really are.August 27, 2012 at 12:51 am #188369
Didnt find the ingot on ebay :/ And dont think they sell it in Finland. I just must start trying waterproof gel liners
