Hello friends of makeup power, today I was with some enthusiasm to do some artistic makeup after more than ten days that I have been inactive, I was thinking that it has been a long time since I used my favorite color for a makeup since lately everything I do is very colorful so I am encouraged to present you today "Black bird" a makeup as its name says inspired by a black bird.
For this makeup I was inspired by several that I saw on the internet and that I really liked not only because of how “simple” it looked but because of the black color that gives that touch of malice in the photos, it looks something dark which has always been to me. I liked it very much ... I was very calm in the makeup process a long time ago I did not feel that way when putting on makeup, maybe it helped me to distract my mind for a while after so many problems, I hope you like the result as much as I do, I liked the idea to edit some of the photos (like the cover photo for example) and others just leave them unedited.
I started by applying the primer on my face, then a little base with the help of my beauty blender, to continue, I applied stick paste on my eyebrows and combed them a lot so that they would stick to my skin and be able to paint over them without problem, the following It was to make the shape in my eyes of some species of feathers which I was going to fill with black, above I made the shape of a third eye (I am not very focused, but I realized it very late hahaha) I started painting with my paint Black body which I love very much because it is water-based, it is as if you used watercolors for your skin, plus it has a divine aroma!
For this step I used a fine brush which would help me shape the feathers.
Then I finished painting both eyes in black and with white body paint I was adding light to the feathers to give it volume, once the paint was dry, seal with a little black shadow so that it had a more opaque tone, the most difficult part arrived what was painting the third eye, for this I used only black, white and a little red tone, the shape outside the eye was made with brown shadows to give a "relief" to this eye and it seemed that it came out of my forehead once ready add more blush and highlighters, with black paint draw the lashes of my third eye and with this same paint fill my lips, the last step was to brush with brown and black paint on the part of my neck, thus simulating some rustic brushstrokes that they in turn look like feathers.
To finish I took many photos, I will put here the ones that I liked the most, among them are some where I used my white contact lenses matching my third eye on my forehead and others that I have my “Quartz” color contact lenses that I also found very cute as it looked, my eyes stood out a lot from the black color that was around.
