Frank'n'Furter make up

Watching Taboo the musical and loving it so much, made me think of my friend Siz and her absolutely favourite musical Rocky Horror Picture Show.. And I wanted to recreate Frank'n'Furter make up.

I think I'm soon going to run out of black eye shadow.. I still don't know any good black eyeshadows here and don't want to waste money on bad, messy, glittery, blueish, greyish "black" eyeshadows... So I hope my Bobby Brown will last till October when I'm going to London and do some make up shopping there.
Anyway. Here's my Frank'n'Furter make up!

Products used:
Rimmel London - stay matte pressed powder 001 
Bobby Brown - charcoal 12 eyeshadow
Wet N' Wild - kajal & eyeliner black black
Markwins International - eyeshadow
Markwins International - lipstick
Markwins International - Plump'n lip gloss
Oriflame - beauty power curl mascara
My favourite songs from Rocky Horror Picture Show:
Sweet Transvestite
Time Warp


  1. Great job. Excellent recreation!

  2. Yeahhhhhhhhh love it ;)
    It makes me think of the 20's makeup.
    Well done, definitly love it :)

  3. Loving it :) I think makeupstore has a good black shadow if you have that where you live!

  4. T, the Bee: Thanks!

    liloo: Thank youu :) Yeah you're right, it's a bit like 20's make up, though I didn't think of it before you said it :)

    Honi: Thank you! Yeah, we have Make Up Store here in Finland. :) Probably going to try that next. Thanks for the hint! :)

  5. I love Rocky Horror, I did Columbia makeup last week. Tim Curry is really hot.

    You look cool with those brows too :D And I think you'll find lots of cool make-up in London, there's some good brands here at the moment!

  6. Amazing recreation! I love proper BLACK blacks!!

  7. That's so gothic and totally lovely, black make-up. Love the blouse you picked for the photoshoot, suits well the make-up.

  8. Robyn: Yeah I saw your Columbia make up, it was awesome! You're right, Tim Curre is hot..
    Thank you! I'm sure I'll find lots of cool make up in London.. All amazing brands like MAC and Illamasqua.. etc. Things that I can't get in my country..

    Pili: Thank you! BLACK blacks are the best.. It's so annoying when so many blacks aren't really black but grey or blueish or something!

    Clare! Thanks much!

    Tinja: Thanks youu :) I usually try to pick suitable blouses for the photos, suitable for the theme, or quite similar to the picture I copied the make up from. Though I don't always end up using the same picture here than I looked when recreating the make up..

    RUBIA ARGYI: Thank you! Lol I was quite surprised how good I'd look as a goth.. hahahah.

  9. Epic win. Seriously. Evertime I watch that movie I want to do the makeup, but then I don't. Haha. This is seriously awesome. :D

  10. Julissa: Thanks! :D I used to be like that too.. I always saw awesome make up looks everywhere and thought, 'I want to do that look!" but I never did anything :') Now I've finally started to actually do and not only think about doing! Hope you're going to do so someday too :D

  11. Sweet! I've seen goth girls wear this type of makeup to the clubs. You did a way better job than any of them!

  12. BLIX: Wow, thanks! I'm flattered :)

  13. wow :D it's fantastic!!
    I so love it!!.. :D you did a great job! =D
    (btw.. those "black" shadows.. can be used vet too and then (sometimes) be really black ^^)

  14. Siz: Thank youu :D I though you'd going to love it.. hahah :D You going to recreate Frank'n'Furter make up too?
    Yeah I know, I reemmber we talked about the vet black eyeshadows.. :) But the "blacks" I have, they are not so black even as a vet.. I love this Bobby Brown black eyeshadow, as you can see, it can be VERY black like it is on my eyelid but it can be used as greish black too :)

  15. yeah sure I will recrate it :) (xD as I said above.. when I'm healthy again .. now I don't look good at all >.<)
    oh my "black" shades look quite black when they're wet
    so true this bobby brown is really nice black :D love it!!

  16. i love the rocky horror picture show...yoo look so good with this make-up...

  17. Siz: Yaay :) I don't know about my old black shades because I've thrown them away already without trying them wet XD But the other black one I have now isn't black enough.. Maybe it would be, but I'm too used to this gorgeous Bobby Brown eyeshadow :D

    Orchid: Thank you! It's a great musical :)

  18. yeah ^^ perhaps you're so used.. sad that they don't sell Manhattan products in Finland coz this "Dark Spirit" is a really nice black :) I should get me that again xDD but always when I'm in the store it's sold O_O

  19. I've been exploring for a little for any high-quality articles or weblog posts on this sort of space . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled upon this web site. Studying this information So i'm satisfied to convey
    that I have an incredibly excellent uncanny feeling I found out exactly
    what I needed. I so much certainly will make sure to do
    not put out of your mind this web site and give it
    a look regularly.
