Music Video Inspired Tutorial: Paramore's "Misery Business"

At last, an inspiration that's not blond!
This installment of what seems to have become another tutorial series is inspired by Hayley Williams of Paramore in their "Misery Business" video. Most artists would wear either very smokey or barely there (but still with loads of makeup) looks in their videos. Hayley, however, has been seen sporting more colorful looks. Major props to her!

For this look, I've used the 88 Color Palette so if you've been neglecting yours like I have, it's time to whip it out!

Once again, the colors used may not look exactly like what Hayley had on. This is simply my interpretation using the colors that I have. The color combination is pretty much similar to Sunset Eyes [click here for another version using the same palette]. I kept the skin fair and for the cheeks, I used an orange blush. As per usual, lips are quite neutral

With Flash: Sorry bout the oily looking nose

My eyes looked very the "sepet" (monolid-ish) with the flash. Lol

Looks better in natural light

Great colours! Another good eyeshadow combination. However, the I Nuovi eyelashes all seem to have like a plastic-y shine to them.. Disappointing coz I Nouvi offers such a good range of lashes if it weren't for the shine. I feel like false eyelashes are very limited in Msia, choice-wise. If that makes sense. =)

Jenn: Unless I do really smokey eyes. frosty eyeshadows look bad in flash too >.<
Awh, thanks babe :)

Nikki: Love brights! thank you :)

Shilka: Thank you :)

Jeanjean: Thanks! glad you like it

Aly: thanks :) If you're looking for the non-shiny kind of lashes check out ardell or andrea lashes. I know sasa carries andrea but I'm not sure if they have the natural kind. Ardell uses human hair for the lashes. those taiwan lashes in a box of 10 pairs tend to look really natural too

Gio: Thank you!

Traclyn: Thanks :)
