Sailor Moon Series: Sailor Moon

Greetings from the Dark Side!

I am sure that most of you have watched or at least know of Sailor Moon. It is such an iconic and well-know anime series that it is really hard not to recognize the heroine. I myself watched Sailor Moon as a kid, although I actually watched it in Spanish. I was never a fan of Sailor Moon in the English dub, and I much prefer the original Japanese or the Spanish dub. Sailor Moon is definitely one of the anime series that I remember the most from my childhood, so I am super happy to be making some inspired looks based on the wonderful characters. This look is inspired by Usagi in her Sailor Moon regular Sailor Senshi outfit! Enjoy ^_~

                                                                              Products Used                                                            
-Maybelline Eyestudio Palette 'Blue Blowout' (dark navy blue and light blue)
-Lime Crime Uniliner 'Lunar Sea'
-Sugarpill 'Buttercupcake' eyeshadow
-Revlon Photoready Kajal 'Blue Nile'
-L'oreal Voluminous Excess mascara 

-Lioele Super Gold Snail BB Cream

                                                                                  Tutorial                                                                   


1. Start this look off by priming your lids.
I used Lime Crime's Eyeshadow Helper.

2. If you want this look to last all day, use a dark blue cream eyeshadow/eyeliner as a base.
I used the Pumpkin & Poppy cream eyeliner 'Life on Mars?' from the Starman palette.

3. Apply a dark navy blue on the lid.
I used a dark navy from the Maybelline palette 'Blue Blowout'.




4. With a fluffy brush, blend out the navy blue using a lighter blue.
I used the light sky blue in the  Maybelline palette 'Blue Blowout' to blend everything out. 

 5. Apply a white eyeliner on the lash line.
I used Lime Crime's Uniliner in 'Lunar Sea'. This eyeliner is a bit difficult to work with (more so because I've had mine for a while and it is starting to dry out).

6. Apply a white eyeliner on the waterline.
I used the white side of the Revlon Photoready Kajal in 'Blue Nile'.

7. Apply mascara.
I used the L'oreal Voluminous Excess mascara.




8. With a small brush, apply a yellow eyeshadow on the lower lash line.
I used Sugarpill's 'Buttercupcake', which is the best yellow eyeshadow ever!


9. Apply a iridescent blue on the inner corner of the eye for a touch of magic!
I used Victorian Disco Cosmetics 'Evenstar' eyeshadow (such a magical eyeshadow!!!)






10. Take a small red gem and apply it on the lower lash line near the yellow. This will represent Sailor Moon's red hair accessories. 










11. I decided I wanted this look to be a little bit more blended out, so using a fluffy brush I used more of the light blue to blend the navy blue on the crease even more.

  2. I really like it! I grew up with the English dub and loved it at the time. I mean, we were kids, what do we know about good written television? Hahaha. Then I rewatched (and watched Stars, since it's banned in the US) the series last year in the original Japanese and... SO MUCH BETTER!! When I went back to look at dub clips, the voices were awful, everyone sounded boring when doing attacks, and... ugh. And changing Uranus and Neptune into cousins bothered me, hahaha.

    I always try doing a SM series on YouTube but I never finish it. So sad. I really need to complete it. (Or restart it, since it'd be on my new channel.)
