Black

I wanted to try something different. Perhaps a look that makes me look like someone else. A look that makes me uncomfortable. So I decided to doย this. Brows shaped using a dark grey pencil liner, a graphic eye done using liquid liner, and false lashes so thick they look like worms from afar. Nothing on the cheeks but slight contour, and dark dark lips. All are things I’d never do, and the end result? I scared myself.

And this last one looks like I’m about to kill someone. The photo turned out brighter because I used a reflector. Anyway…

This is nothing original because I’m sure I’ve seen looks like this somewhere. But the tough part is actually trying to make the liners look even. I was debating whether to post this, but what the heck, let’s just go with it. Sorry, no smiles. I tried but looked more like a lunatic.

    WOW WOW WOW!!

    So glad you showed us. I LOVE IT. You look awesome and fierce. It’s pretty hot. Lol @ lunatic!

    • Lily

      Thank you! This is definitely a look for the angry and scorned. Hahaha

  • Love this editorial look! That liner looks amazing – you look pretty badass, Lilz! I also kind of love the darker brows!? Super fierce!

    • Lily

      Thank you Kristen. I had to reshape my brows, making them straighter and longer. I’m so glad you like this look ๐Ÿ™‚

  • OMIGOD! Love it! So intense and edgy! Girl power!

    • Lily

      Thank you Laarni. It was difficult for me to click “post” but I’m glad you guys like this. Makes me happy.

  • Oh this is so editorial! Kudos for making the liner even! That’d take me forever and a day! Also the end made me laugh :p

    • Lily

      The lunatic part right? It’s the best description could come up with, looking at those photos. Lol

  • I love it! It is not scary at all!
    Since both of our eyes are not the same, I imagine it is a very hard task to make them look similar. My one eye has a heavier lid than the other. If I ever try something like that, I might have to take a few hours to make sure it looks half way decent lol

    Oh and that lipstick! It rocks! What is it?

    • Lily

      Hey Sara, thank you. The lipstick is by Makeup Revolution. Called Vamp I think. You apply it and it sets. No budging. I don’t like the texture though. For a photoshoot like this, where I apply then take off immediately, I’m ok ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I actually really love this look on you, not scary at all! Look, you probably can’t don this look while taking the kids to the park but I reckon to a nice cocktail party, yes, definitely!

    • Lily

      Thank you Lilit. Thing is, I won’t be so ballsy to actually wear this to a cocktail party. Heh!

  • Bella

    I think it’s a beautiful look, not a very “mommy” one but my 19 year old self would have rocked it for sure LOL! When Mac Film Noir was my favourite lipstick…

    • Lily

      Thank you Bella. It’s definitely not a mommy look. LOL! Imagine though, me wearing this and Chloe and Ashlyn flanking my side. And Ashton in a baby carrier on my chest. It would be funny.

      • BooBooNinja

        Yes! Do that and make it your blog banner image.

        • Lily

          Lol lol no! I can’t do that. Hahaha I’ll attract unwanted attention. Lol

      • Bella

        LOLOLOL! You should do it for grocery shopping just once…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • Lily

          You guys are evil! People here might send me to the crazy house you know. Lol

  • I LOVE editorial looks! One of my favourite weekend things to do is just start expanding on an eye look and letting it go where it goes. I actually think you made this liner extremely wearable, especially for an evening party if you’re not wearing anything too dressy.

    • Lily

      If there’s a Halloween party, I’d wear this look ๐Ÿ™‚ Show us the looks you experiment on!

  • Love this, I’ve been into sooo many dark lippies โ™ฅ

    • Lily

      Glad you like this Alexis ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sexy! It sure is a dramatic look but the way you “gaze” is always sexy.
    Love the lip color. Can it be sheered down to a stain? It’d be awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena. This lipstick dries to a matte texture that cannot be sheered down. It would be great if it could though!

  • I think it’s fun to push the boundaries sometimes! It’s artistic and so much fun to execute and I always giggle when I see myself in the mirror. I love this, especially that lip color!

    • Lily

      This lip colour is at a level where I call scary dark. I’m not at that stage yet. I might like it more if there’s more red to it though. And please, show us the giggly bits, I mean, looks.

  • Bellyhead

    AHHH! I love all this ass-kickery! Ok, there’s not a ton of places to wear such a kick ass look but man, you look awesome wearing it!

    • Lily

      Thank you Belly. Where I live, there isn’t a single place I can wear this look to to be honest. Lol

  • Jaa

    But I would like to see the smiley lunatic face!! LOL! You look fierce – I like! And again, I’m digging the brows! <3

    • Lily

      And you would like the lunatic face. Haha!

  • LOL lunatic hahaha-LOVE this! I love graphic look like this. And makeup is supposed to be fun! And it fun to try different looks!

    • Lily

      It was definitely fun! I didn’t leave my room though. My in laws might think me crazy. Lol

  • Surprisingly rather wearable LOL

    • Lily

      Really? Would you wear this out? Unfortunately I don’t have the guts to. Heh

  • Unpaletteable

    Lol at the idea of you being a smiling lunatic! I think it looks great and love the power make up has to freak us out. Makes me wanna lock the bathroom door and do ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane’

    • Lily

      I had to google the movie reference ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember to add the heart shaped beauty mark though. LOL!

  • WOWZA. You pulled it off well, Lily! I will have to try this look sometime soon. Hope it turns out post-able for me too (will wear it out too because I just want to hear reactions!). Absolutely love the lipstick, btw.

    • Lily

      Thank you babe!! And if you try it, PLEASE post it so I could see it. I don’t have the guts to go out with this look though. I’d love to hear about your experience if you did. Hahahaha!

  • Wow Lily, this is so artistic, I love it!!! I don’t expect you to walk out to the street like that, lol, but WOW. PS I’m loving the design of your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you Sofia. I’m so glad you like the new blog design too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wohhh this looks so cool and goth. I like how editorial it is, but you’re right, kinda scary for real life!

    • Lily

      Thank you! Yes, scary in real life ๐Ÿ™‚

  • GummyVision

    I think this looks pretty darn cool & rather stunning!! Sure you have the look of death Lolol but it shows just how versatile makeup can be!!

    • Lily

      Look of death. HAHAHA! Thanks Gummy. That pretty much sums up the look for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Nailz Craze

    What an awesome fierce look!

    • Lily

      Thank you!
