Makeup tutorial - something Victorian?

So here I am, nice and fresh-faced. MOISTURISE at this point and let it sink in. I'm going with a slightly-vaudvillian Victorian style here. Here's the pictures of the makeup stuff I'm using.

Makeup set I picked up the other day

Bloody Mary white liquid and Avon white powder.

Pink Ink by Sugarbaby and Savvy Pomegranate lipstick. I didn't end up using them, but I should have, in retrospect.

Starlett setting powder and ivory pressed powder - i bought them today. They smell DELICIOUS for no reason and I recommend them - the setting powder was $8.99 and the pressed powder was $6.50 from Bi-Lo.

I couldn't find any wedges the other day, so I bought some powder puffs. They have rings on the back. Useful!

Used the white liquid and some setting powder. Sorry for shitty photo quality, I don't have a camera. x3

Result! It's pale and set, but not a done foundation.

The white Avon stuff - I recommend this. I really do.

The coloured powder. SMELLS SO GOOD. I always add a bit of colour to prevent GHOSTLY PALLOR FLAKINESS. That's why white powder is better than white liquid.


Another picture for whatever reason, colour shows better, looks more natural.

Black kohl pencil on the lashline. I rubbed it back until it almost vanished, redid it, rubbed it back again and used the...weird...flat brush thing from my kit with a flat edge that I used to dust the edge with some black powder, very lightly. I can't find my primer, but use one.


One of the two eyeshadow pallets I used.

Dusted with white. Ignore the atrocious eyebrows.

Purple in the crease - dark and to the edge of the eye, and down slightly.

Black eyeliner on the top. If I had a liquid, I'd use that instead. I will, if I can find one.

Blush. A lot of goths do not like this. It has its time and place, and this stuff is as red as my lipstick. I love it so much. It looks lovely on, and blends really well.

Blush applied. See, looks fine.

Lined my lips with a matching colour pencil. Get one of these brushes. This lipstick is too dry for the brush, but they're so useful. I'm a fan of dry lipsticks because I find they last better.

Completed! Hair needs some attention desperately. But I hope you enjoy this. I'm proud of the blush, it's the first time I've really used it. Try it out and let me know.

Nicely done! :) I think you balanced the pale very well with adding the blush. Hearts, Janna Lynn

Very well done! I especially love the way that blush looks on you, and the lipstick.
