Kill la Kill Series: Matoi Ryuuko

To hell with your opinion! I'll take my own path no matter what anyone else says!” 

Matoi Ryuuko is the main protagonist of the anime KILL la KILL. She is a tomboy who arrives at Honnouji Academy searching for the other half of her scissor blade, a clue that will help her find the person who murdered her father. Throughout the series, Ryuuko is a freaking badass character! I really loved her as a character and enjoyed seeing her in the show. She is a tomboy at heart, but she also displays a heartwarming girly side. For this Ryuuko inspired look, I decided to go for a darker blue and red look, since blue and red are her signature colors. I also added a bit of yellow from the yellow of her outfit (aka Senketsu's eye). I hope you enjoy this look!

1. Prime your lids very well. I used a bit too much of my Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper here!

2. With a flat brush, apply a generous amount of a navy blue eyeshadow. I used the MAC 'Blue Sheen' baked eyeshadow because it has beautiful sparkles!

3. With a fluffy crease brush, blend the blue on the crease and upwards. You can use a matte medium-toned brown to help blend. Honestly, this eyeshadow was quite difficult to blend!

4. Apply a matte skin color light beige on the brow bone to help blend everything out. I used the matte beige in my Wet n Wild 'Vanity' Palette.

5. With a red gel liner and/or red eyeshadow, line the lash line. I used my Inglot red gel liner and a Mon Ennui eyeshadow in 'Red Velvet Cupcake' to make this liner. This represents Ryuuko's hair streak~

6. Line the waterline with a blue eye pencil. I used the Revlon PhotoReady Kajal in 'Blue Nile'.

7. Line the lower lash line with blue and red eyeshadow. I used the same colors I used on my lid.

8.  Apply a yellow eyeshadow on the inner corned. I used Lime Crime 'Goldfish' eyeshadow.

9. Apply mascara and lashes.

10. Finish the look by applying an undereye concealer to clean up the lower lash line. I used my Maybelline Instant Age Rewing Dark Circle Eraser!
