The Dark Knight

So recently I have been debating to start making tutorials again. And I've made the decision to start doing it again. So I did a "Batman" inspired tutorial, using the comic book logo.

The products I used for the eyes:
  •  NYX eyeshadow base in skin-tone
  • A white eyeliner pencil (I forgot the name of the one I used)
  • Color Workshop pallet 
  • Sephora Flash Eyeliner in Black
  • Mascara (Mine's came from the color workshop)
Products used for the face:
  • Hard Candy Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation
  • True blend Mineral Powder
  • Elf Bronzing Powder
  • A very light pink blush
Brushes Used:
  • Elf Eye-shadow brush
  • Elf blending brush
  • Color workshop Stippling/Blending Brush
  • Elf Contour brush
  • Color workshop blush brush
Get The Look:
  • Apply your face primer before you start to apply your eye-shadow primer that way it would have sunken into your skin and your will be ready for you to apply your foundation. 
  • Apply an eyeshadow primer or if you don't have one apply a concealer and go over it with a bit of powder.
  • Begin by placing a white eyeliner on you lid and blending it over your lid, this will help make the color pop more than a primer will do on its own.
  • Now taking your eye-shadow brush place a yellow color over the lid. Pat the color on your eye, this will help make the color a bit more intense.
  • Next taking a blending brush begin to blend the black in the crease and rounding it out in the outer corner in a "C"shape or you can wing it out. Make sure to not put to much black, since the color can easily get out of hand.
  • Wipe off the eye-shadow brush, or you can use a different one if you want, and take a color close to you skin color and being to highlight under your brow. You can also place the color at the inner corner near your tear ducts to catch light, this step of course is optional.
  • Now begin to line your eyes with a black eyeliner and then add some mascara. You can add fake lashes if you want for extra drama.
  • Using a stippling brush apply your foundation to your face.Blend it in and remember to put some on your neck.
  • Next apply a powder to set in your foundation. For this I used the stippling brush.
  • Taking a contour brush and elf bronzing powder begin to contour your face, place it at the hollows of your cheek, temples, both sides of your nose (optional) and along your jaw line. This of course if optional and it will make your face appear slimmer.
  • Now using your blush brush begin to apply a blush to the apple of your cheeks.
  • Apply whatever lip product you want. I just used lip balm.
