In this video tutorial, I show you step by step instruction on how I achieved my black,dramatic smokey eyes and the messy updo hairstyle with red mesh tubing weaved in it.
My look was part of a collaboration project with five other artists, and we each did a look inspired by the districts in the Hunger Games series. My look was inspired by District 12, where the main character, Katniss, is from. Katniss is known as The Girl On Fire. District 12 is known for coal mining to make fire. So I chose to do my eyes very dark and smokey like the black coals. I used the red mesh tubing in my hair and the red rhinestones on my face to represent fire.
You can change this look suitable for every day wear by substituting a different color eye shadow instead of the black and garnet that I used. You can try brown or grey smokey eyes with a shimmery color instead of the garnet. You can definitely do the messy updo hairstyle that I show you in the video, without using the mesh tubing.
