Return of the Look: Hufflepuff (Harry Potter)

"You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil
—The Sorting Hat
So you want to be a student at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? 
Very well let's see what House we can put you in then! 
Let's see, are you brave? No? Okay, well let's keep going then. 
Are you extremely intelligent? No, okay let's cross that one of the list. 
Are you perhaps very evil cunning? Not that one either, huh?
Ummm...well since you have no special traits you can be part of Hufflepuff, the House for the rejects loyal! Yep, I am sure you will be super happy there!

Just kidding anyone who is part of Hufflepuff (don't kill me)! Hehe, we always have to make fun of Hufflepuff just a little ;) I thought I would try to redeem this House by making a fierce black and yellow look. Hufflepuff seems so understated, but hey, we can show some Hufflepuff spirit and look damn good doing it! I hope you enjoy this look~

1. With a black eyeliner or gel eyeliner, draw out the shape you want (MAC 'Blacktrack').


2. With the same black eyeliner/eyeshadow, start to define the shape.

3. Once you have the desired shape (it does not have to be perfect yet), fill in the inside with a white base (NYX 'Milk')

4. With a small brush, apply a yellow eyeshadow over the white base (Sugarpill 'Buttercupcake').


5.  With the same brush, apply a shimmery yellow to add some dimension to the look (Lime Crime 'Goldfish').

6. Start to perfect the black eyeliner (MAC 'Blacktrack).

7. Make this even more dramatic by applying glitter. First apply a sticky base (Wet n Wild Single Glitter 'Bleached' and then pat on the glitter onto the lid (MAC 'Lustdust').

8. Go back and make sure you didn't get too much glitter on the black eyeliner.

9. Apply a black eyeliner on the waterline (Prestige Total Intensity eyeliner) and set it with a black eyeshadow (Lime Crime 'Lotus Noir').

10. Apply mascara and false lashes.

11. Lastly, go back and clean up any smudging. Clean up the black eyeliner and finish up by applying a white or skin-color eyeshadow on the brow bone.
