To celebrate the US release of Bayonetta, one of the best action games to come out recently, I decided to do a makeup tutorial of the titular character. In case you don't know what she looks like, here's a pic:
Here's my interpretation of her makeup, which is made up of shades of purple:
I think I could have done a better job, but here are my steps for this look anyway. First, I applied a violet shade to my lids up to my crease, winging it up slightly at the outer corner.
I then added a royal purple shadow above the violet all the way to just below my browbone.
A light fuchsia shadow is blended onto the browbone as well as near the bridge of my nose.
I lined my upper lashline and the outer half of my lower lashline with black, and my waterline and inner corners of my eyes with silvery-white.
Finally, I filled in my eyebrows with a grey-brown brow pencil and put on some false lashes.
Finally, I contoured my face, put on some light purple-pink blush, a plum lipstick and drew on a beauty mark.
I threw on a shirt and gloves and did a closet cosplay of Bayonetta; I am so lucky to have glasses that look vaguely like something she would wear too! :D
Go play Bayonetta, it's frigging awesome! :D
