Sweet Alice

I recently acquired a poker-straight shoulder-length platinum blonde wig, and I decided to do a couple of looks to go with the wig. I hope this can demonstrate that makeup do play a big part on how a person would look even with the same hair.

The first look is a toned-down everyday look that is sweet and softer. It would go great with Lolita fashion, so I decided to call it Sweet Alice.

I used a shimmery beige eyeshadow from the crease to the brows, and a dark brown eyeshadow from the crease down to my lashline as well as a bit at the lower outer corners. I blended a bit of the beige eyeshadow with the brown in the inner half of my eyes, and also highlighted the inner corners with it.

You can't see my brows but I used the same dark brown eyeshadow to fill them in. I also lined my eyes with dark brown eyeliner along the upper lashline and the outer 1/4 of the lower lashline, and black eyeliner on the upper waterline beneath my lashes.

My lashes are curled and a whole lot of black mascara is applied to both the top and bottom lashes. This helps me to get the wide-eyed doll-like look. Finally I put on shimmery dark pink blush on the apples of my cheeks, and pink glitter lipgloss on my lips.

Here is a video of me putting on the makeup, which is about 50% mascara application for some reason. XD I don't know if this would actually be a tutorial but I hope it is good reference for how to do this makeup.

This makeup is pretty close to something I would wear to be a bit dressed up without going glam. I think it would work as cosplay makeup for sweet innocent characters; that's why I chose the opening music for the anime Chobits, which has a cute platinum-blonde main character, as the background music for my video.
