Good morning! Wednesdays’ blog is up a tad late. I was just going to take a nap yesterday but I ended up just plain going to be. Sleep and I are not getting along lately. Anyway, today I have a tutorial using the Anastasia Moon Child Glow Kit and a few shadows from the Tarte Tartest Pro Palette. The star of this show is the Moon Child Glow Kit, though.
I really wanted to do a look more so inspired by the Fields of the Nephilim song called Moon Child and pull color inspiration from the video and of course, incorporate the glow kit. I wanted this look to be very dark with hints of the 1980’s early 90’s goth scene.
Here’s a look at my inspiration. I wanted to use dusty deep mauves, and hints of blue and black with a silver shine.
The star of the show today is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit, particularly the shade called Star and I pulled all my matte shades from the Tarte Tartiest Pro Palette.
Let’s get started. I begin with my brows done and eye primed as usual. I just used my concealer to prime my eyes and set over the lids with a translucent powder. I used concealer because I was going for a super pale look and I wanted to blank out any discoloration of my lids. I also went a bit more dramatic on the brow.
On a big fluffy brush, I took the shade Vintage from the Tarteist Pro Palette. It’s an almost pure white shade.
Nor that you can really see it but I applied Vintage to the brow bone and inner corner of the eye.Next, on a fluffy crease brush, I took the shade Profesh which is a cool toned brown shade, it’s almost a mauve shade.
I took this into the crease and a transition shade. I really blew this color out, bringing it up to the brow bone on the inner corner and in a cat eye shape toward the tail of the brow.
Taking a deeper grayed out plum shade, this one is called Fierce with a more flat blending brush to pack the color on.
I applied this shade all over the lid and blended into the crease.
Then I took the black shade called Punk on a pencil brush.
Punk went into the outer portion of the lid and blended over into the Fierce shade. I drug the black shade up toward the tail of the brow and blended it as I went for a lifted look.
Next, I cleaned up the edges with a q-tip and some face primer. I wanted to get a clean structured line.
Moving on to eyeliner, I used the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper to create a kind of thin but long wing, Then with the black eyeshadow I softened the line and blended it at the outer corner so it meshed right into the eyeshadow.
For the lower lash line, I took Profesh and began smoking it out.
Next, I tight lined with a deep gray eyeliner. This one is from Tarte, I believe it’s called Slate.
I blended Star slightly inward a little bit on the lid and on the lower lash line, as well as the brow bone.
I finished off the eye by curling my lashes and applying a few coats of mascara.
For mascara, I used the Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint.
For foundation, I used the Nyx Total Control Drops in Alabaster. Then for concealer, I used a combination of the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer in Warm Neutral and White. I set everything with a translucent setting powder.
I contoured my face with a super cool toned contour, for this I used Nyx Blush in Taupe (Discontinued) and for blush, I used Tarte’s Memorable then highlighted using Star from the ABH Moonchild Glow Kit. I finished the skin off with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal and set everything with a setting spray.
For the lips, I used Nyx Liquid Suede in Alien topped with Star.
