1. The Dark Lipstick Queen
When it comes to alt makeup, thick eyeliner and bold, dark lips are royalty. Inspired by @lora_arellano’s stellar look, here’s how to do this alt makeup look to help you flaunt these alt girl staples.
Alt Makeup Tutorial – Dark Lips
- Apply your base makeup (primer, foundation, concealer, you know the drill).
- Create full, fluffy brows with the Makeup Obsession Fibre Brow Gel by sweeping the spoolie over your brows to shape, fill and set.
- Recreate this incredible alt eyeshadow look using the I Heart Revolution Cranberries & Chocolate Palette. Use a pencil brush to apply Nude to the entire eyelid. Next, use a flat eyeshadow brush to pat Auburn onto the middle of the lid, before buffing Enticing into the crease using a tapered blending brush. Blend all 3 colors in to create a graded effect. Repeat along the lower lash line. Finish with a touch of Heavenly in the inner corner of the eye.
- Create a thick winged eye using the Revolution Super Flick Eyeliner (you’ll find a tutorial on how to do this here).
- Apply the Revolution 3D Faux Mink Wispy Lashes, then use the Revolution 5D Mascara to blend them with your natural lashes.
- Finish the face with a touch of bronzer along the cheekbones, and a touch of highlighter just above the cheekbones, along the bridge of the nose and on the chin. The Patricia Bright Moonlight Glow Face Palette has all of your highlighting and contouring needs covered!
- And to complete the look, apply your favorite deep shade lipstick to achieve the ultimate alt makeup look. For a matte finish, try the Revolution Pro Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in the shade Retro, or for a gloss finish, we recommend the Makeup Revolution Lip Vinyl in the shade Black Forest.
