All of this moving and adulting has really drained me of my creative energy! Ugh.. anywho… I enjoyed this look because it’s super soft and wearable. normally my makeup is extra intense- so this was a nice change. Also stay tuned for a special announcement later!!!! :D
1) Prime eye with white eye shadow primer and follow up with applying a light coat of white shadow
***Tips*** Applying a white or skin tone colored shadow on the lid will help you blend your shadows more easily.
2) Apply “Cake” from the UD Alice Through the Looking Glass palette on the crease of the eye.
3) To add depth, add a small amount of “Jezebel” from Juvia’s Place the Nubian II palette to the crease of the eye- focus this darker shadow more on the outer v portion of the crease.
4) Lightly dab “Luscious” from the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette on your lid using a flat shadow brush.
5) Using your finger, apply Nyx Ultra Pearl “Mania” Loose shadow on the center of the eye.
6) Apply liquid eyeliner to the top lid and pencil liner to the lower lid.
7) Using a smudge brush, smudge “Jezebel” into your lower lash line.

Jean,Bertholdt,Connie,Eren,Levi,Armin and Erwin as youtube beauty and makeup guru's???
Eren is a wizard with makeup. Most people can’t replicate his looks that well, but he does a good job explaining everything he does. Eren also likes to use affordable products because he knows not everyone has that much money. He’s pretty popular, especially around Halloween time.
Levi usually sticks to natural make up looks and health videos. He talks about healthy life styles, makes videos on different food recipes, and talks about good ways to make sure your hair and skin is healthy. His YouTube channel is very professional and usually helps out many people.
Jean probably wouldn’t wear much makeup beside concealer or powder to neutralize his skin tone, but he’d make tons of videos explaining how to take care of skin and hair. He also likes making sit down and talk vlogs because he really likes talking to the people that support him.
Connie doesn’t really do wearable makeup looks, more so over the top woah-how’d-he-do-that kind of looks. Most people don’t replicate the looks he does unless it’s for Halloween, which he has a special series for. He also gets into SFX products a lot. (If you’d like to know who I’m comparing him to, check out Glam&Gore on YouTube. They’re amazing.)
Bertholdt is more of a sit down and talk vlogger with the occasional make up video. He does hauls, empties, and natural, easy makeup looks. Even if people don’t come to his channel for makeup, many find his videos to be calming due to his nice personality.
Armin is like Bert, his channel isn’t centered around just make up. Sure, he’ll post a tutorial or two, but he really revolves around fashion and vlogging, with the occasional make up video. Many people like his channel because it revolves around the life style of an ordinary person and people find he’s super easy to relate to.
Erwin happens to only update his channel occasionally, but he still has a schedule. It’s more of a hobby than that of a job, and he only enjoys sitting down and making a video at random times. Doesn’t like make up that much so he sticks to health and life style things.
Some Halloween looks? (I know they’re not perfect don’t hate me im not a makeup artist and none of these were actually planned out I just winged it) I’d originally posted the full skeleton look but I didn’t like it cause it’s messy so I replaced it with the more “wearable” skeleton sorry!

Spring 2014 Wearable Makeup Trends: Be Cool, Still Look Normie
Every spring and summer, I see 4,000 makeup lists from magazines that scream POP O COLOR!! and just scream pop o color at you until you melt into a tiny fear puddle. A lot of the suggestions look really great on the runway or in editorials, but also look really alien and looney tunes when you’re say, meeting a friend for drinks or leaving the house at all. They’re not particularly wearable for people like me, who love makeup but are also sort of scared of people looking in the eye. Now, of course, what’s “wearable” is swimmin’ in the same pool as “bikini body” ie “put a bikini on your body, it’s a bikini body” and “if you’re wearing it, it’s wearable.” Basically, put on whatever the fuck you want and I approve. However, if you’re looking for some help or some trendy makeup looks that don’t jump straight into neon orange cheeks and green eyeshadow, I’ve compiled some more normie makeup looks for you. These are still “on trend,” but can be worn by pretty much anybody, anywhere:
1. Mermaid-y Ocean Eyes:
Elf Studio Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease (3.00, elf stores and Target)
Stila Smudge Stick in Turquoise (20.00, Sephora)
Listen, the moment it gets hot I want to look like a mermaid, but there’s only so much sea salt shit I can spray into my hair before I just dump buckets of ocean water on my head and call it a day. This is a much simpler look and it beats wearing a clam bra, as I imagine they hurt and smell, much like me on my period. All you gotta do is smudge some turquiose, ocean blue, or teal eyeliner on your lower lash line. You can build it to be as subtle or as obvious as you like, and you can fool around with it: you can put midnight blue in your waterline and turquoise on your lower lash line, you can do a teal cat eye, or you can leave it as one simple smudged line. This also works particularly well for girls with glasses, as it makes your eyes stand out from beneath those beautiful, nerd-goddess frames. I’m kidding, don’t fetishize women with glasses just cuz they CANNOT SEE!
I see a lot of tutorials on youtube and pictures on tumblr saying this is such a wearable look, because the colors are toned down or neutral.
But you want to know what I think? EVERY LOOK IS WEARABLE! Just have the confidence to pull it off.
Of course I believe there is always a time and place. There are certain looks that may not be appropriate for a funeral or an interview but honestly otherwise I think you can wear whatever you want on your eyes as long as you feel comfortable.
Maybe it is just me but that is my opinion on “wearable” makeup.
New video is up dears! stregheriaa had asked me to list some basic makeup products I would recommend for goth people, but I also wanted to list a few of my favorite “scary and non wearable” makeup products for those of you who also like to look extravagant (I may be goth but I love my colorful makeup).
Please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already, I would love to have you all around for future tutorials and product reviews (and other nonsense)
I will be doing my tutorial on that starry eyed makeup look soon so be on the lookout for that! :D
