Malificent Hues (Brittany Couture Gothic Makeup Contest Entry)

Maleficent Hues (Brittany Couture Gothic Makeup Contest Entry)


Please show your support :) Click "VOTE" and "like" the photo on Facebook! :) Thank you!! 

Brittany Couture is having a Gothic Makeup contest and I decided to enter because I really like Gothic style makeup & Brittany will be choosing the winners for the two categories so I feel like I acutally have chance of winning.

I generally don't really enter contests because the people who usually win are the ones who have lots of followers or fans so they get the most votes, and since I don't have that many, I just sit it out....

I decided to do a dramatic gothic look, but incorporate a few colors as well. Accessorized with black flowers and lots of thick Gothic style jewelry.

No, the piercings aren't real ;) I took the balls off some of my tongue & belly rings and glue them on using Duo Brush on Lash adhesive (I applied the glue first, let it try until it got sticky, then applied the jewelry)

Hope you like it!

Grape Harmony (The Body Needs)

Grape Harmony (The Body Needs)

I was going for something very shimmery & feminine. I wanted to do use The Body Needs eyeshadows Harmony, & Blackened Violet, along with Lime Crime's Lunar Sea liquid eyeliner. I'm really not so pleased with the way I did the white eyeliner, feel like it doesn't look right...but I tried and now I'll try to improve.

I used a rosy color on the cheeks with a pale/pink opaque lip. Pulled the hair to one side, paired with some dark purple earrings.



Hope you like it!

Classy Leopard

Classy Leopard

Here's a matte eye & lip. I was going for a classic style look; neutral brown smokey eye, Velour Lashes T Dot Ohh for natural looking lashes, bronzed the cheeks & added sparkle along the top, and finished it off with a bright red lip. 

Slicked my hair back, high up in a sock bun, and paired it with some soft brown feather earrings (I made myself).

Hope you like it!




Quick Review of Velour Lashes T Dot Ohh:

Let me just start by saying that I really do love these lashes. They're very soft to the touch & extremely natural looking. They have a short to long shape which helps give the eyes a cat-eye shape. The bands a pretty flexible and the lashes stay on pretty well especially when using Duo brush on lash adhesive.

They're more expensive, but worth it because they're a completely different quality and look then synthetic lashes (which I REALLY love and wear daily). They are also said to be cruelty free which is one of the reasons I was ok purchasing them.

Gunmetal Daisy (The Body Needs)

Gunmetal Daisy (The Body Needs)


I was going for a pink & gunmetal combination, for a grungy look with bright pink lips. I did a double liner using silver to brighten the top a little and added a pop of pink in the tear duct. Went lighten on the lashes, with hot pink lip, & light pink cheeks.
