Askmewhats Version: "Rocker Look" Part 2

It is definitely not my personality to do a "rocker" look or any wild look on myself! :) But since Yumeko requested me to do a "Black Rocker" look, I obliged, because Yumeko is a sweet girl and her blog makes me happy! :D

Caution: I am definitely not sporting this well, but I hope the effort pays off! LOL

Here's my Black Rocker Look
I made it darker
and feistier!

How did I do this?

Step 1:

I applied MAC Paintpot Cash Flow on the lid (so the eyes doesn't look too dark). Apply a good amount of MAC's Carbon or any matte black e/s all over the lid going a little beyond.

Step 2:

Blend in harshline using any goldish brown e/s. I used Milani's Bronze e/s with MAC's 217 blending brush with wiper motion. Adding black e/s to intensify the color.

Step 3:

Apply Bourjois's Beige Rose or any highlighting powder on the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes.

Step 4:

Using any creamy black eyeliner (Urban Decay's 24/7 in Zero) on the upper and lower lashline including the waterline. Smudge with a pencil brush for a smoked effect.Step 5:

Apply any creamy white eyeliner, (Urban Decay's 24/7 Ye-yo liner) on the inner thirds of the eye, if your eyes are not sensitive, include the inner corner of the whole eye area for a bright look.

Step 6:

Since the black liner on the waterline and lower lashline is creamy and will definitely smudge on me, I top the eyeliner with an e/s to set the eyeliner. I am using MAC's Black Tied or any glittery black e/s.

Of course, fill in your brows with your favorite eyebrow pencil or powder. I made my brows a bit thicker on this look for a "wilder" effect.

Here's my final look!

These products touched
the rest of my rocker face :P

The Face Shop's Silky Foundation in NB21
mixed with Stila's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer

Set my foundation with Ellana's Intensive Foundation in French Vanilla
with my Baby Kabuki

I blushed with a natural flush
using Revlon's Powder Brush
in Wine and Everything

Moisturized my lips with Kiehl's Lip Balm #1
Top with ELF Tone Correcting Concealer
to remove the natural color of my lips

And are you ready for a seriously
non-rocker look?
I look like a crazy woman here!
I swear!

No, it's not dandruff!
It's ....STRESS! lol

Like I said,
it's my effort that counts :)
Now you know why I love light makeup!Stay happy!!!


  1. i thnk this is my first time seein u in black e/s! i love this rocker look.. its stunning!!! lucky u have ur own MAC e/s palettes too.. i really awnna start!! but thats a lot of $$$$$

  2. You rock that look, girl!!

    I love you in that edgy eye makeup!!

  3. very nice EOTD! i love it! you're really rockin your rocker look!!! :)

  4. wow! you shoudl deff do the black more often ;) looks good on you!

  5. Oh my gosh, I think you look GREAT! What are you talking about?! You pull off the rocker look quite nicely. I loveeee it.

  6. Nikki, I think you did a great job!

    But nevertheless, I agree with you. Light neutral and bright colors flatters you best.

    Just like me. I think heavy dark makeup makes me look weird, or maybe it's due to my poor skills at applying techniques, hehe...

    I love your close-up pictures!

  7. oooo hellloooooo ROCKSTARAHHHHH

    i love it, it's good enuff for everday even, I'd try it!
    You're such a lil makeup talent!

  8. yeah, me too. you look great with dramatic look. love it nikki!

  9. you look great with the rocker look! I think dark green+black would also look great with you :)

  10. Super sexy!! I love it! The color is very unique in a metallic way!

  11. LOL @ first 'crazy woman' look :P

    i think olive green looks the best on u. i did some black make up like this before, and OMG before i even stepped out of house, i shocked myself and removed it immediately. lol.

  12. Fun & Makeup, lol that's my ONE and only MAC palette, and I don't plan to own more, I tend to get contented with colors that I need and have :) And it took me time to fill it up!

    Jamilla, thank you so much !!!

    Aquaracer, thanks! I'm glad I was able to rock it even for minutes :P

  13. Vanessa M it takes a lot of getting use to for sure! :)

    Xoannie, thanks dear for saying that! I am still not comfortable with it! hahah it's for "request" purposes!

    Jess, I think it all boils down to our comfort level, some people really looks great with it and are confident! Me, I think people would be shocked to see me in heavy make up like that, not my personality :) But I enjoyed this

  14. Kimberly Tia, thanks sweetheart! You rock any color!!!

    Nehs, thanks girl!

    Nikki, oohh Green really is my e/s color! :)

  15. Fuz, the Metallic from MAC Paintpot really works! :)

    Prettybeautiful, I hear ya! I would probably step out with this makeup if I'm attending a wild party! I can go out with this one though but a bit toned down!

  16. I LOVE this look!!!!!! *copies into memory bank*

  17. that's a great rocker look!

    not too overly done, and that's how i like it too!

  18. WHEEEE!!! its specially for meeeee!
    and i am glad u did it!
    cos i thnk u look AWESOME lady!
    that black makes ur eyes look so defined and really pop like ur crease looks deeper etc [does this make sense]

    i cant help but stare at ur eyes instead of anythin else, very intense, love it!! ur eyes are talking!!
