U for Uruha. Makeup Tutorial by oGuren U for Uruha. Makeup Tutorial by oGuren
NOTE: this is more for people with double eyelids.
I'm sorry but I'm not a monolid so I don't know how they work.
But I will try to explain some parts.

Well this is my take on Uruha's, from the j-rock visual kei band the GazettE, make up from the PV 'Silly God Disco'
It's not 100% accurate.
Nor will I say that it is.
It's only that I see a lot of people making mistakes while doing this. I also used to. Until I sat down and actually studied Uru's makeup out completely.
It took me a while of playing around with make up to figure out how to complete this so don't be afraid to experiment, and remember: practice makes perfect~

1. Prime your eyelids.
This is essential . If you're going to cosplay this or even wear this for a full day, it will crease. And this make up isn't meant to crease.
So please use a primer (aka: Urban Decay Primer Potion, Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance or in my case - concealer).

2. Get the 'almond' shape right.
Remember that you're doing make up of an Asian person. And Asians in general have slightly almond shaped eyes, so packing eyeshadow on in a round way won't cut it for this look.
You can use any eyeshadow you want as long as it's a purple/violet.(I don't know the brand that I used, sorry )

3. The triangle of doom.
As stated above, asian make up takes Asian eyeliner.
Outline first to avoid mistakes. Because you will do them at first.
The triangle like tail at the end 'lifts up' your eye and makes it look more angled.
Use a liquid if you know what you're doing, for beginners I suggest using a gel eyeliner with a thin brush (MAC black track fluidline).
Myself, I used a liquid eyeliner by Isadora.

4. The crease.
This is probably most important part.
Contrary to popular belief, it's actually pretty easy to make this if you have the right brush.
Like in the picture, I used an angled brush. Any brand is good as long as the tip of the brush is in a neat shape, not flared out.
As said, use a black eyeshadow, now you might want to invest some money in a good eyeshadow. Because adding a load of cheap black eyeshadow will result in massive flaking and smearing. And the line won't be as crisp and neat.
(I used MAC Carbon eyeshadow. You can use NYX or Stargazer too)
For monolids and people with generally small eyes, I recommend going up with the line than the natural crease line. Because if you black out your crease and open your eyes, it will look like you don't have anything on your crease at all.
Plus it makes your eye look gradually bigger.

5. Connecting.
You can skip this part if you want, but for me, it looks ridiculous without the bottom lash line connected with the top.
Thanks to the sharp angle of the angled brush, you can make a strong rectangle shape.
If you want you can make it round, of course.

6. Finishing it.
Add mascara ( I totally did a typo in the image) and lashes if you want.
But I don't recommend that, because, well, Uruha isn't wearing any.



thank you for taking your time and reading this.

I'd be happy to help out ^^

"Double eyelids" is a term that's new to me. I've always heard them described as simply "really long"...interesting!

Regardless, double / really long lids are an eye makeup nightmare so thank you for the tip!

This is really in depth in detail and you did a good job explaining ^^

It's really beautiful, but I don't think it will fit my eye shape as well as yours. ^^

i can never freaking line my eyes. only on my waterline; my lines r always crooked :( any tips?
oGuren Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I'd advise you to avoid trying to do very thick lines ( because our faces are not completely symmetrical, your eyes might be slightly different, making the lines look crooked. For example, my left eyes is more hooded than my right one, so I have to make the line on my left eye gradually smaller than the one on the right, to even everything out.). Get a felt tip liquid eyeliner pen, look straight ahead and try to do short, thin strokes starting from the middle of your eye, going towards the outer part and then carefully filling in the space near the inner corner.
With practice, you'll get used to it eventually. :>

Dont worry, this works around the same for monolid people, just that they have the choice of where they would want the crease to be and have no crease to follow as a guide
sjarmkvark Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011   General Artist
Looks gorgeous! I'm all thumbs when it comes to making myself up, but I'm definetly gonna try this one!
QuirkyArt Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2011
So, it is not to be used for more than 4 hours ? What is crease ?
oGuren Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
you can if your eyelids are on the dry side, or you use a primer.
the crease is the area where your eyelid dents in to cover your eyeball.

so you can use your concealer as a primer? thats a nifty tip.

Thanks for the tutorial :-) much help~
oGuren Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
you can, you can also use a color pencil (like white or black or any color that you want), but if you're using a concealer, stay away from anything too creamy~
MikuChamaJrockette Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2010
