Thanks for nominating Bill Kaulitz, lead vocalist of Tokio Hotel.
I've wanted to replicate a dude's look for the longest time and try out some different contouring techniques so this was a great opportunity for me.
Don't worry, I didn't leave the house looking like this!
Read on for the inspiration, pictures and product listing.

Bill Kaulitz is not hard to overlook with his iconic dark black smokey eyes and lion mane hair (which I wanted to do if not for the lack of hairspray). Unlike the other Him-spired tutorials which are based on the guy's character and personality, this is a straight-up copy of Bill's makeup and I hope I do it justice! He's such a pretty boy that I think I look more masculine that he does.
It's definitely much more than just slapping on thick eyeliner. First I turned my skin pale and I wanted the eyeshadow to be well blended. To create the sunken face shape, I heavily contoured the hollows of the cheek with a technique usually used for male facial features and not female. You can also tell from his pictures that the under eye area is strongly highlighted.
Tokio Hotel will be playing live in One Utama this Saturday! I'm going but Hsu Jen certainly is, so have heaps of fun going crazy over Bill!
