Monochrome Purple Smoky Eye Makeup ft Sugarpill & Urban Decay

Here's a monochromatic purple smoky eye look. Purple is one of my favourite colours to wear on both the eyes and lips and I think this tutorial can show you how to make a purple smoky eye look refined and well done, without losing any punch from the dramatic makeup, or losing the edge. 

Enjoy!

GRWM Terminator Genisys Terminator inspired Makeup ft Sugarpill & Inglot

Here is my terminator inspired make up for the movie Terminator Genisys complete with face damage. For the eyes I chose to simulate the terminator’s metal skeleton with the Sugaprill silver and Inglot dark metallic grey eyeshadows and the shimmery red centre of the lid represents the red camera lens terminator eyes.

I paired the eyes with a black and silver gradient lip, and created this look as if I were a terminator wearing this makeup and then I got the hell smashed out of my face.

This tutorial I looked at a skinless terminator and tried to approximate the metal skull plates underneath the skin and had some fun adding the blood around the wounds. 

Enjoy!

GRWM Mad Max Fury Road inspired Makeup ft Sugarpill, Inglot & Born Pretty

I went to see the new Mad Max movie and wanted to create my own brand of inspired Road Warrior makeup look. It’s not a direct replication of anything anyone would wear in the movie, but more a war paint that I would slather on my face before battle on the road in a post apocalyptic wasteland where I had access to some red black and orange dust.... and I guess a few sticks to use as makeup brushes or something.

I also created a matching red and black distressed nail design which you can check out over yonder.

Enjoy!
