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!

  47. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  48. 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 :)
