Kamelot Inspired Makeup Attempt

So as I mentioned in an earlier post I'm starting to rediscover my love for symphonic and prog metal.  In high school I was absolutely obsessed with Nightwish and Sonata Arctica.  I recently met a guy who is still very much into this style of music and he has rekindled my lost love.  He told me about Kamelot's newest album Silverthorn so of course I hopped on Youtube to check out some songs from it. Sacrimony (Angel of Afterlife) was the first one I watched and I was instantly in love with the guest vocalist Elize Ryd's eye makeup.  I knew I would not be satisfied until I tried to recreate it, and so I did!

Here is the video, starting at 3:50 is where I took most of my reference pictures from. Silverthorn is amazing, if you like this kind of music I would definitely recommend it.

So here we go! I had so much fun doing this and just as much fun taking pictures! This look makes my eyes look HUGE.

Here is a side by side open and closed eye shot. This makeup is everything my high school self wished I had the skills to do.  On my lips is Buxom's Lip Polish in Sandy.

To do this look I first put down some UD primer potion and then NYX Milk as a base.  The eye shadow is entirely from Pop Beauty's eye shadow trio in Smokin Hot.  I lined my eyes with NYX gel liner and smudger.  I also put some NYX Milk on my waterline.  

And then because I'm ridiculous I tried imitating the faces from my reference pictures.  This was the result.  I am the definition of sexy, no? Hahahaha. This is embarrassing I can't believe I'm showing you guys this :P

I hope you liked my recreation attempt. I really wish I'd have had some false lashes I think it really would have added to the look.  Next up, I've been really loving Simone Simon's makeup from Kamelot's The Haunting music maybe that will be next :)

  2. You really nailed it! Despite thinking I'd hate the new Kamelot when Khan left, I think they did a great job with the last album and I love the variety in their vocalists now!
