Askmewhats Version: The Rocker Look

Blog reader Mitch requested for a "rakista" (Tagalog term) or "rocker" look.
Easy right? I can easily pull out a photo for a rocker look like this :D

**photo from promspot.com

But! She had a special request! She wanted me to do a rocker look that doesn't use any black e/s! She felt black e/s makes her look like she got punched on the eye. Plus she wanted a look that can be worn when she goes out during weekends with friends. So I thought of a look that has a "rocker" flavor to it but wearable! :D Hope you like it!

Here's my final look

Askmewhats Diagram time!

Primed my lids with UDPP prior to e/s application :D

Step 1:

Apply NYX Morrocco (sis Gracie, thanks) e/s or any e/s you like to create this Rocker Look. I pat on the color with my small crease brush applying all over the lid going a little bit above it.
Using the same brush, apply the same color on the lashline just below the waterline.

Step 2:

Blend in the colors by using any brown colored e/s on the crease with a big crease brush, blending in the colors. I used Stage e/s in Macchiato. (thanks So Loverly girls)

Step 3:

Pat on the brow bone with a shimmery white e/s. (Yasumi dear, thanks for this)

Step 4:

Apply any creamy eyeliner all over the lashline and smudge it out. Apply this also on the waterline.

Here's my final
non-black e/s

Rocker look :D

And here's what I used on the rest of my face

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish NC35
Mixed with CG Tru Blend no. 1

NYX Blush in Desert Rose
using my Shu Uemura Face brush

And for my lips
since my eye make up in real life is really bright

I opted for nude lips
EYEKO Fat Blam in Touch of Iridiscent Pink
top with CG Wetslicks in Toast-ed

And here's my super final look

Brace yourself
Girl trying to go wild :(

Hope this is helpful!
Don't say I didn't warn you
that I'm no rocker in real life!
But it's nice to do something for a change!
I enjoyed this! Thanks for the request
Stay happy!

  26. That's a great idea :D! I'm also apprehensive about using loads of black on my eyes, but I <3 blue, so this is...Perfect :).
    Thanks ^_^. Also thanks to the person who requested this ;).

  27. Prettybeautiful, thank you!

    Aika, black e/s? Mura Lang? so far I'll say NYX, but I'm not sure if we have NYX resellers here.... the Face Shop kc I've tried but not that pigmented. How about Baxi?

    JO, thanks! I will definitely do this look again and wear this out :)

  31. wow! i like it! but i doubt that i'll be able to pull of such colors. haha not in my comfort zone. i wanna see a black eyeshadow look. like really smokey. :)

  32. Nikki, you're heaven sent! mwah

    you just solved my dilema on what makeup to wear on Saturday..my bf asked me to watch Eraserheads concert and he specifically said I should just wear shirt, pants and sneaker (he knows I don't know what to wear on a "rock" concert coz I've never been to one hehe) so I will wear this one so I can have a pop of color on me haha..thanx nikki! :)

  33. Soo cool! Very cute! Like so much your lower eye lining with that blue !!

  34. haha i like your rocker pic!! it's cute!

  35. You have to be the sweetest looking rocker chick ever!! hehehe!!

    I love this look to bits!!! will try it out someday for sure! Your eye maps do help makeup idiots like me loads!! :D

  36. lol i've never seen you do a rocker look before but it's a nice change. you should do it every one in a while :)

  37. the last pic is the best! love that pop of blue!

  38. Ohmigoodness, I LOVE this look on you. That blue liner is insaaaane.

  39. I love smoked out looks using colors other than black. Black is over used heehe and you did such a pretty job!!

  40. wow, I love this, it's so cool! You rock!

  41. Oh sis! This really is cute! I love it!

  42. Steph, it is out of my comfort zone too but hey, it'll be wonderful to shock your friends and for parties :D

    Crystal Gale, yay! I'm glad I'll be of help for your upcoming concert :D :D :D Let me know how it goes! :)

    From Beauty and Care Island, thank you, i'm sure the pop of blue looks wonderful on you!!!

  43. Lily, thanks

    Jenn, awww. I'm glad the diagram helps even a bit :D thanks for letting me know!

    Musicalfanlovesminerals, ohhh of course..I'm like you, I'm more comfortable with neutrals and boring look :)

  44. Nicnic, thanks

    B, darling, thanks for stopping by and sending me love!

    Renren, thanks

  45. Mae, I know..let's start changing rocker look! hahahha

    Gio, thanks sweet!

    Gracie! I'm glad you liked it :D

  46. i really like this look on you. makes your eyes pop!

  47. Yumyumsushi, thanks for stopping by and letting me know I'm doing ok with this look :)

  48. I'm too late. But oh well, I just saw this one today and I thought I should leave you a comment. It's an interesting look to pull off. I know you've taken a gazillion photos already but I gotta say, your skin is flawless on this one. I guess your Clinique regimen is doing wonders for you.

    Good job on the rocker look!

  49. Tish sweetie, thank you so much for leaving such a nice compliment! I don't have good skin to be honest, up close my skin is a bit reddish and dry due to skin allergies :) But it's nice of you to say so :)
