Get the Look | Morticia feat. Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette.

Guapo Style Blog

Am I too early for Halloween? I didn’t think so. I mean I did do this look last month and went for a night out with it.

That’s right, tonight I have a tutorial on how I did my Morticia Addams inspired makeup, perfect for Halloween or year around if you are so darkly inclined like myself. I didn’t get costumey with this look, just inspired by Morticia.

Morticia

All the eyeshadow in this look is from the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette which a reviewed a few weeks ago. I also show how I like to do a cat eye effect on hooded eyes.

Grab your coffee and keep reading below if you want to see how I got this look using the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette.

The Eyes

For this look, I used the center cool toned quad from the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette.

I began as usual with my brows done and eyes primed with ELF Eyeshadow Primer and a combination of Kat Von D Lock-Concealer in White-out and L’Oreal Pro Glow Concealer in Classic Ivory to blank out my lids.

I set my lids using the shade Liberatus (pinkish ivory) all over the lid to the browbone with a fluffy brush.

Setting the lid with Liberatus ensures that the eyeshadow will blend out smoothly.

Next up, I took the shade Lazarus (cool taupe) on a fluffy brush as my transition shade.

This shade got a bit washed out in the photo but I used Lazarus to contour my eye and as my transition shade into the brow bone.

To start building depth in the outer corner of the eye, I took Saleos (Smoky Brown)  in a small fluffy brush.

I applied Saleos to the outer corner and blended out toward the tail of my brow and well as into the crease lightly and a quarter of the way in on the lid. I kept it deepest at the outer corner. I went back and forth between Saleos and Lazarus until I had a smooth blend between the two shades.

This alone is a great eyeshadow look, you throw on some mascara and be good to go. Applying the eyeshadow where the deepest shade focused on the outer corner and blended toward the tail gives the eye a lifted cat eye shape without using eyeliner. This is perfect for mature lids and hooded eyes in general.

Time to get even darker. On that same small blending blush, I took the shade Shax (jet black) into the outer corner more precisely than with the Saleos.

I carefully blended Shax toward the tail and slightly on the lid. Starting with the tiniest amounts and building slowly.

With Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper, I mapped out my wing shape. This step isn’t necessary I just wasn’t sure exactly what I was doing with this look at this point. I didn’t start out doing a Morticia inspired look. It just happened.

So I did my usual baby wing but was bored with it. I wanted something darker and more dramatic.

I grabbed a small pencil brush and went into the outer corner along where I placed the liquid liner and smoked it out with Shax.

I built up the black slowing and went back and forth with Lazarus and Saleos to blend the black. I also traced along my lash line to soften the liner and blended it onto the outer corner really emphasizing the cat shape. I wanted to create a hazy line that flowed into a really blown out smoky wing. I feel like this eyeshadow style is flattering on my eyes and makes them appear larger and cat like.

I went a head and finished off my face makeup at the point and came back to the lower lash line. I took Lazarus again and blended it along the lower lash line just like a transition shade. I also added a pale off white liner to the water line to really open the eyes up.

With a pencil brush, I took Shax and applied it to the outer most corner and blended it inward into Lazarus while keeping the inner corner light just like the upper lid. I made sure to connect the bottom shadow to the wing shape on the top. This really emphasizes that lifted look as the black causes the outer corner to appear receded and pulled upward.

I finished off the eyeshadow by applying Liberatus to the inner corner for some extra brightening.

I finished off the eyes with a few coats of Benefit Roller Lash Mascara.

The Lips

For the lips, of course, I choose a glossy red lacquer from Bite Beauty.

This is what brought the look home. A patent shine red lip. How more Morticia could I get short of dying my hair black. Funny though I have colored my hair deeper since I did this look. I have been saving it for a few weeks. LOL!
