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 video...so maybe that will be next :)
