How to apply the PERFECT red glitter lipstick for Christmas!

Christmas makeup for 2016 will be all about that glitter!

For some reason glitter lips are CRAZY in trend right now, so if there was ever a year you wanted to wear an awesome glittery lip without feeling too over the top - this is the year to do it.

In today's tutorial I teach you how to apply the perfect red glitter lipstick for your Christmas event!

You can watch the video tutorial here or continue reading for a step-by-step look at how to be the shiniest elf in the room at the Christmas Party.

What you will need for the lipstick:

M.A.C. Cosmetics - Cherry Lip Liner, buy here:
Inglot - Red Lipstick, buy here:
BH Cosmetics - Loose Red Glitter, buy here:
Gorgeous Cosmetics - Glitz Fix, buy here:

Or you can substitute the above products for similar ones you already have. I will mention here thought that the Glitz Fix is the most important thing in creating this look - without some sort of glitter adhesive you're really going to struggle to get this look on point!

Firstly, line your lips using your red lip liner pencil, and at this point you are also creating the base for an intense red lip by completely filling in the lips with that pencil too.

Next apply your red lipstick over the top of that. This just adds an extra layer of red to make the glitter really shine!

The third step is to apply the Glitz Fix, I did this step one lip at a time, starting with the bottom lip. Once you have applied the Glitz Fix over the entire bottom lip take your loose glitter and dip a small makeup brush into almost want to scoop the glitter up with the brush.

Then lean forward slightly to avoid a glitter mess all over your chin and start to pat the glitter onto the lip covered in Glitz Fix. Do this until the entire lip is covered in glitter.

Repeat the process for the top lip and just like that you're ready to be the sparkliest betch around this Chrismas!

Pair it with this gold cut crease eyeshadow for a super sexy look!

(Tutorial for the cut crease on the EyedolizeMakeup YouTube channel).

I have lots of Christmas themed looks coming over the next few weeks, including beauty looks, freaky looks, super easy to create looks and MORE! Make sure you're subscribed to the Eyedolize Makeup YouTube channel for updates!

The Art of Becoming Harley Quinn From Suicide Squad: A Makeup Tutorial by Eyedolize Makeup

I have been incredibly excited about creating this makeup look for almost a year! When I saw the first preview of Suicide Squad I started planning this look and it took every piece of willpower in me to wait this long to do it! But I knew that it was going to be a great look for this coming Halloween and so I wanted to release it now for those of you planning on becoming HARLEY QUINN for Halloween 2016!

Previous Harley Quinn makeup looks have included heavy white-based face, a mask and patterned outfit.

She has been given a HUGE makeover to feature in Suicide Squad and it includes a more natural, but pale complexion, pink and blue "structured messy" eyeshadow, dip-dyed pigtails and a rebellious
ensemble to match.

In this tutorial I show you how to re-create this incredibly bad-ass look!

PRODUCTS USED (and where to buy them if you need to!):

Harley Quinn Wig, buy here:

Arbonne - Makeup Primer, buy here:
Simple - Hydrating Moisturiser, buy here:
Ben Nye - White Cream Stick Paint, buy here:
Ben Nye - Neutral Set Powder, buy here:
Tarte Cosmetics - Weekend Eyeshadow, buy here:
Tarte Cosmetics - Ladies Night Eyeshadow, buy here:
SugarPill - Dollipop Eyeshadow, buy here:
SugarPill - Afterparty Eyeshadow, buy here:

Gorgeous Cosmetics - Manhattan Lip Liner, buy here:
Lime Crime - Glamor101 Lipstick, buy here:
Ben Nye - Red & Black Paints, buy here:
Mehron - White Paint, buy here:

You can find my video tutorial on how to complete this look here: Suicide Squad Series - Harley Quinn Makeup Tutorial

Or alternatively read the steps below.

Start with a clean face (it's okay if you have a little moisturiser on), apply primer over the face and rub it in well. 

Apply dots of moisturiser of the face but do not rub them in. Take the white creme stick makeup and apply it all over the face, but roughly. 

Then taking a large blending brush, blend the creme stick white face paint and the moisturiser together. Using the moisturiser as a mixer is going to assist the white face paint to spread evenly over the whole face, neck and top of the chest.

Once all areas are covered and the paint has set, take a neutral powder and apply it over the entire are with face paint on it. And I'm also using that neutral set to "bake" under my eyes, around my nose and on my chin - you can find the tutorial for how to bake here.

Next taking a medium grey eyeshadow, apply it as a contour to the cheeks, under the jaw line and down the sides of the nose. Using a grey will act as a good contrast to the white - it would not look right to use bronze or tan colours for this. 

Then use a slightly lighter grey eyeshadow to fill in the eyebrows - Harley Quinn does not have super light eyebrows in the movie so don't worry if your brows are a bit darker than the bleach blonde wig 


Next comes the eyeshadow, you will need a pink and a blue. And you need to apply the eyeshadow over the entire eyelid, but don't go too much higher than the crease line. Then drag the eyeshadow down onto the cheek and do a few lines this way until you reach the middle of the underneath of your eye. Apply a thin line of black liquid liner to the top lash line, ending in a small flick. And apply a black pencil eyeliner under the lower lash line and smudge it using your finger.

Apply a small amount of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes, and use some natural lashes to finish the eyes - Harley Quinn does NOT have heavy eye makeup whatsoever so try to keep it fairly lift (apart from the pink and blue eyeshadows).

Going back in with the black liquid liner, write the word "ROTTEN" down the jaw line and also add a small black heart to the top of the cheek.

Next line the lips with a dark red lip liner and fill the lips in using this color as well. Filling them in will help hold the colour for longer. Once you've done that apply a dark red lipstick over the top.

I have also completed this look with a small amount of body paint. Using a red body paint I drew an outline of the neckline of the t-shirt, as well as a horizontal red line across the chest. Then filled in that entire area with the same colour.

Next I took a white body paint and applied it directly below that red paint and filled that area as low as I wanted to take the paint.

I added thin lines of a mixture of black and red paints the whole way around the edge of the red area (about 1cm from the edge), to create the look of seams on the shirt. I also applied to diagonal lines parallel to each other inside those seam lines, and then smudged out the edges of them. This created the look of a crease in the material.

The last step is to pop the wig on!

I will be completely more character looks in my Suicide Squad Makeup Series over the next few weeks, so make sure you're subscribed to my Blog or YouTube channel to get notifications when they're released!

Stop Your Concealer from Creasing Forever With This One Simple Trick!

Up until now, in my 12 years of applying makeup on myself, I have struggled with my liquid & cream concealers creasing underneath my eyes. I have found super inconvenient ways of fixing it, like re-applying concealer half way through the day or using powder concealers (which never have as good a coverage as the liquids).

But I have FINALLY found the solution and I absolutely had to share my experience so that all the ladies out there with the same problem can finally make it through a day without worrying that their concealer has sunken into those little lines and ultimately made us look older, tired and not as neat - all the things we are trying to cover up with this product in the first place!

Have you heard of baking?! No, I don’t mean the cupcake kind. Baking is the new beauty trend currently sweeping through the YouTube world. And as soon as I heard about it’s benefits and results, I immediately had to try it.

So the basic concept of baking is that you apply your concealer as you normally would, I use Maybelline’s Fit Me Concealer in the colour 20 Sand Sable, under my eyes, around my nose and on my cheeks if needed. I also use a beauty blender to push the concealer into the skin just for that extra fix!  

Then you take a translucent powder or a setting powder like Ben Nye’s neutral set powder, dip your damp beauty blender into this powder and apply it over the top of the concealer….but you don’t wipe it away or blend it in! Oh no no no no, you let it sit on top of the concealer for 10 minutes….like this…

After the 10 minutes are up take a large powder brush and gently sweep over the powder. I know it sounds like 10 minutes is a long time to add on to your beauty routine but it really isn’t…and you actually don’t need to take any longer to do your makeup at all! I apply the powder and then do my eyebrows or contouring while I wait for the powder to do its thing. 

This is honestly the only effective way I have found to keep concealer from creasing under my eyes and I have been using it for the last week with different concealers and the same results  every time! 
And not only does it assist with concealing, the process also works as a great highlighter! I do this on the tops of my cheeks and it works a dream! Perfect highlight - errrrytime!

Batman Characters Costumes and Makeup through Time

Batman is one of the most popular superhero characters of all time. And through the years, the way he is portrayed on the small and big screen has evolved. From the low budget TV series of the 1940s to the present blockbuster film, Batman has changed a lot, and so have the other characters such as Joker and Catwoman. 

Batman through the Years

The first time Batman was seen on the small screen was through the 1943 self-titled serial starring Lewis Wilson. The superhero had a very low budget look that was also used in the 1960s TV series that starred Adam West as Batman and Burt Ward as Robin. The aesthetics of the TV series was campy and featured kitschy catch phrases. 

"Bartender, a bit of advice. Always inspect a jukebox carefully. These machines can be deadly."

However, things became dark after the success of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One and The Dark Knight Returns. Tim Burton brought Batman to the big screen in 1989 with Michael Keaton playing the brooding superhero that’s veiled in shadow. The same look was seen in the sequel Batman Returns, only darker.

Then the 90s brought a more cartoonish look of the caped crusader when director Joel Schumacher took over the movie franchise as director. In Batman and Robin, the costumes looked toy-like with ice-colored accents. Also looks like someone is a little cold..... #nipples

Batman returned to the dark side when director Christopher Nolan took the helm of the franchise with Batman Begins. The costume of the superhero felt and looked more like a heavy armor that made the caped crusader an imposing presence on the big screen. Then The Dark Knight came, which was the first time in which the superhero wore a costume that allowed him to turn his head. The latest costume worn by Ben Affleck in Batman Vs. Superman, returns to the form-fitting armor that resembles Frank Miller’s version.

Evolution of Joker through Time

There aren’t a lot of comic book villains that’s as consistent as Joker. He is the most iconic character in history, and his face is recognizable even if his makeup has evolved through the years. The first actor who portrayed Joker on the small screen is Cesar Romero and started the trend of Joker wearing clown makeup and red lipstick for his permanent smile. 

Then in the 1980s, Joker makes a comeback in live action through the blockbuster movie Batman, where the villain was played by Jack Nicholson. He wore colorful white makeup, the trademark red lips, and bright purple suit.

However, the most memorable Joker of all time might probably be Heath Ledger. It was the most violent and darkest version of the villain to date. A of fans of the comic books said that Ledger’s portrayal was true to the character’s murderous origins.

Fans of Joker are looking forward on how Jared Leto will play Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Based on the trailer, gone is the white makeup, and replaced with tattoos and silver teeth that make him look deranged as the previous reincarnations of the Batman villain.

These are how Batman and Joker evolved over time. Their costumes and makeup changed according to how the characters were played. And their looks will keep changing in the future, depending how the characters are developed by the directors and writers.

I for one will be keeping an eye out for new looks all the time and look forward to re-creating these awesome looks on my YouTube channel. Jared Leto's joker look will be coming in the next month! Make sure you're subscribed, especially if you want Halloween costume ideas and tips!

Literally The Easiest Last Minute Halloween Makeup Ideas EVER!

So it's the day before (or worse et - the day of) Halloween and you're one of those people who couldn't decide on a costume or just assumed something would jump out at you with inspiration...but your wishful thinking didn't quite work.

2. The Cat

If you have ANY form of cat ear headband lying around your house you can create this look. Or even if you don't - I once made cat ears out of a regular headband, some sticky tape and black cardboard.
