[FOTD] Halloween Look: Anime School Girl

How was your Halloween?  What did you dress up as?  I had a school girl costume that looked very anime so I decided to try an anime inspired look.  By the way, I got a pretty good deal on the costume, it was only $20 and it came with the dress, head band, sleeves, and garters.  

Let's start:

For my upper lashline, I used tarte emphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow - Linerpot, Black, with a little wing.  But If I were to do this look again I wouldn't go for the wing, I'd drag it straight down for a rounder look.  For tightlining I used Mally Beauty Evercolor Automatic Waterproof Eyeliner in Onyx the Blackest Black.

Sorry about the hair in these pictures, I had my bangs up on a roller like this:

Anyway, continuing on:
Now for the funner part.  I used a white eyeliner to line my lower waterline.  and used the same tarte emphasEYES Waterproof Clay Shadow - Linerpot, Black for the lower lashline which I extended out to match the wing.  Next I used the white eyeliner and filled in the area between the 2 eyeliners.  Lastly I applied white eyeshadow to the inner corner and the lower lashline.  The white eyeliner/eyeshadow are used to open up the eyes, to make it look wider, more anime like.

To add the final touch, I applied falsies to the top, and also applied lower falsies.  I also used a liquid eyeliner and drew 2 additional lines under my eyes.  Anime characters always seem to have some kind of funky and random "lines" near their eyes and cheek area.

This is where I realized I shouldn't have winged out my liner, I wanted my eyes to look rounder and not longer.  Next time I'd just draw the eyeliner straight down.

Here's the final look:
The 2 lines under the eyes add a slightly more comical touch to the look.

In case you are wondering, the blush I used was Laura Geller Blush N Brighten Ethereal Rose Sateen Subtle Orchid, isn't it pretty?  Love Laura Geller :)

Here are some pictures from the night:
