One step closer to Uruha-sama~~

I'm one more step closer to my guitar god - Takashima Kouyou aka Uruha~~! After around 4 years of looking for tutorials, I finally achieved the perfect (almost lar) double eyelid curve that is Uruha-sama's signature looks, apart from the sexy legs... XD
So what I skipped was:
1. Foundation
2. Concealer
3. Liquid liner (for sharpening and darkening lines)
What I used:
1. Artistry eyeshadow palette colours in Ash Black, Basic Beige and Sand
2. Pigeon Compact Baby Powder
3. Laneige Sliding Pact EX SPF25 pa++ Snow Crystal in 01 Transluscent Skin Tone
4. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in 2 Sepia Ink (a dark brown, but a black would be recommended)
5. Shu Uemura Cream Eyeshadow in Beige
6. Opera Volume Control Mascara
7. TheFaceShop Automatic Eyeliner Pencil in Black
8. TheFaceShop Shimmer Liner Pencil in White
9. Natural Charcoal Cleansing Cream (for corrections, using Q-tips)
10. Circle lens in Princess Nudy Violet (or some other colour, diameter 14.5mm)
What I did:
1. Put on circle lenses.
2. Prep face with powder (Pigeon).
3. Use slightly shimmery powder (Laneige) around eye area, blending well.
4. Use gel eyeliner as base for black eyeshadow.
5. Apply black eyeshadow on entire lid until just visible on the crease when eye is open.
6. Darken with eyeliner (preferably liquid, but gel and/or pencil would do just fine) and pull down to lower lashline. Line the outer water line.
7. Using light brown eyeshadow (Basic Beige) and angled brush, draw a draft crease line on the eyelid near the eyebrow, adjust as needed.
8. Slowly darken crease line using angled brush and black eyeshadow.
9. Correct as needed using Q-tip with a bit of makeup remover.
10. Touch up where needed.
11. Clean up shape of crease using vanilla or skin coloured shadow (sand), slowly and gently.
12. Apply masacara.
13. Highlight inner corner of eye using shimmery white liner or shadow.
Truthfully speaking this was one of my few first attempts, so it's not perfect yet, especially when both sides are not symmetrical. For an almost exact replica of Uruha-sama's face, you'll need lots and lots of photos and pretty good makeup skills. My attempt was amateur, so there's much more room to improve. You could also actually add colour to the look for a more personalized Uruha-sama look. Have a go and enjoy yourself~! =)
