....Finally put this together.

As requested, a tutorial for the basic eye makeup I use for male characters....I usually build on this or alter it depending on the specific character.

Also, please note that I have a single eyelid (or rather, not even completely single - those weird eyelids that need to make up their minds on whether they are single or double...) so this will work differently with my eyes as compared to other eye shapes.

....and as warned, I suck at making tutorials. Hope this is of SOME help @@

For those who care, this makeup was used for this:

this tutorial is FANTAsTIC! although if anyone with double eyelids is reading this (if they even care) then instead of making your own crease, just plop the eyeshadow into the crease :3

you guys probably already figured that (-.-);
anywho, i have a double eyelid and this makeup worked on my eyes :)

Wow...It's encouraging to know that single eye lidded people like me can apply that make up~ I've always thought my eyes are too dull....TT^TT Thanks for the tutorial, by the way~~ >w<

Fantastic tutorial and I looove the effect at the end. Such pretty eyes~ :heart:

If you don't mind, I'd like your opinion... I'm going to be cosplaying Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho. Would you suggest I go for this kind of look for him?

I personally would (with some alterations), but in the end it all depends on the overall effect on each person. Sorry for the vague answer @@ but it's really so open-ended....
