Tutorial: My Bloody Valentine's Guideline

For those of you who read my blog, you might notice I did a collaboration on Valentine's Day with my fellow  beauty bloggers (click here). The picture above was the look I submitted. It's such an easy look, super easy and doesn't require a lot of products. If you wonder how to do it, let's read this post to the end. And btw, I posted this on my Instagram account, but it wasn't very detail.

There are two parts I did for this look: the eyes and the slit/wounds on my cheeks. Let's do the eyes first.


Draw your eyebrow. Applying eye primer is optional.

With an angled brush and red eyeshadow, draw a line along your crease like this. Top that red shadow with black eyeshadow.

*you can also use a red and black pencil. Whichever you think easier.

Frame your upper lid with eyeliner. Here I black gel liner and the brush from the product.

Glue your falsies.

While waiting for ghe glue to get dried, using an angled brush, apply the previous red shadow on your lower lash bed.

With an eyeshadow brush, blend that red shit out.

Top the previous red shadow with a black eyeshadow.

Again, blend that black. Btw, do you notice that the glue have dried out already?

Retouch your eyeliner again, just to cover all those imperfections caused by the falsies glue.

Apply red eyeshadow using anangled brush on your waterline.
Actually, most people use red pencil, but my eyes are extremely watery. So I need something 'stronger' than a regular pencil.

Apply mascara. I don't curl my lashes since they are so tiny and almost invisible. But if yours are long and thick, I suggest you to curl them.

Apply some blood gel or food coloring using a cotton swab on previous crease line to make the effect of a 'bloody cut crease'. Literally. Try to apply it randomly. Not too perfect and not too much.

Final result:



What you'll need:
  • A peel-off mask (I use Garnier mask).
  • A Scissor or razor
  • A sponge.
  • A lip brush.
  • Red and black face painting, or you can use red/black eyeshadow/lipstick/pencil.
  • Blood gel or red food coloring.
  • Some pins or needles (optional)

Apply your peel-off mask on your cheek. Right beside your lips, pointing to your ears. Try to imagine the shape a ripped-mouth. Do not apply it too thick or it will take forever to dry out. Wait until it gets dry, then apply your foundation and set it with translucent powder.

Using a scissor or pinset, cut the mask into the shape of a ripped mouth. Just use your imagination.

Mix the red and black face paint until it become a dark red shade. Apply it on the middle of the wound. Try to make the end as pointy as possible.

Dab the red paint on each side of the wound. Try to leave some 'white line' along side of the wound to make it more realistic. Do not spread the red paint to much. We want to focus on the ripped-mouth only. If you do, simply erase the paint with make up remover and reapply the foundation.

Apply blood gel or food coloring on the wound. You can use a cotton swab.

If necessary, add some pins or needles. Buuut please don't stick it right through your flesh, will ya.

This look is easier if you made this using liquid latex or spirit gum, but since I'm a cheapskate, I replace this with a peel-off mask. Of course nothing can beat the elasticity of those magical stuff and I will strongly suggest to use them for professional purposes. This is just for fun. And by the way, it is not my original idea, my fellows Annisa Lesmana and Aldila have done this before.

Hope this inspires enough. See you!
