Punk / Deathrock / Goth Make-Up Tutorial

This is a look that was requested by Charlotte, a good friend of mine! She's only fourteen, but she's one of the coolest persons I know. She's the keyboardist and female vocalist of my boyfriend's band, CreTura! They're coming out with an album soon, so check them out and stay tuned! But beware, this is metal that gets stuck in your head for DAYS.
Anygays (yup, I just said that), Charlotte wanted me to make a punk make-up video. But then I thought: Do punks really wear more than eyeliner and maybe red or black lipstick? I spoke to a couple of people. One that's actually a punk (or, the closest thing you could find in my city's huge alternative scene), said that I was right, cause that's how ORIGINAL punk was. There's a lot of subgenres, but I only know the subgenres of goth, hahah - Cause that's what I'm into (and metal). So I though of going for deathrock, which is something in between punk and goth (or, well, the ORIGINAL goth, which was tradgoth - Like Siouxsie Sioux). I really like that style, which is more me, cause I'm not a big, flowy dresses and huge skirts person - At least not for everyday. So I wanted to create a look that could work for.. ''both''(?) punks, deathrockers, and tradgoths / goths! I have done a lot of deathrock looks for CreTuras concerts, but Charlotte wanted something she actually could do / wear. So this a pretty simple one. I'm gonna stop writing now.

Blueberry Look

Okay, so I'm kinda pissed, since this already is the worst day ever - And now my school computer has died at least four times while editing and uploading! Had to do everything all over again each time - And one of them, it was ALMOST up! Goddamnit. But hey, it's up now. So I did this blue and purple look. Purple is my favorite colour, and I've been doing a blue (and black) smokey eye for everyday the past couple of months. And today, I kicked it up a notch by throwing on some fun lipgloss (And earlier, at school, black lipstick)! So I was wearing my goggles, and because of the blue and stuff (I used the lipgloss as a ''digital twist'' in one of my first videos), I found it kinda cyber goth! So yeah, this look can work for you cybergoths.

Foxy Curls With Bed Head Extreme Curl Mousse!

On Halloween I dressed up like a doll (and yesterday I wore a devil outfit (see profile picture), isn't that kinda messed up?) with curls and a huge pink bow. I kinda liked the look, but it was pretty strong, done with a curling iron at a salong I worked at. I don't have a curling iron, but still wanted to curl my hair. So I figured that I'd try to do it with only my round brushes and hairdryer from my school hairdressing kit! This is my first shot at a full head - And I'm gonna have to say, I think it turned out pretty well! Just make sure so spray the curls as soon as they cool, cause it absolutely didn't last all day (but then again, my hair doesn't like to be in other shapes than just plain straight). Enjoy the video!
