Experimenting with lip color! A Harley Quinn Inspired Look *Super Hero Series* (Metallic Red and Black)

Hey Guys!
Continuing on with the Super Hero Series I thought I'd switch things up and do a villain!

Harley Quinn is my favorite "villain" of all time. For those who don't know, she is bat shit crazy in love with the Joker. Aren't they cute together?
I guess what draws me to her the most is the fact she is a lot like me (obsessive, lol) and her relationship with the joker is similar to mine in many ways.

 First, I chose the most obvious colors of Harley Quinn's jester costume; red, black, and white. This is my very first time creating this blended effect with the lightest color on the lid, and a very dark color on both the inner and outer corners. It took quite a long time to perfect but I think I finally got it down.

I'm not going to lie...I struggled a lot creating this look, and even more trying to get a good picture. First I tried a bright red lip. I used the most orange toned one that I had.

Then, I wiped that color off completely and tried the deepest blue toned red I had, and after viewing pictures, I saw how awful it looked on me. The combination of dark hair, pale skin, light eyes, red eyeshadow AND red lips is just a little overwhelming on me. The extreme red on the lips kind of washes out the red on the eyes. It looked really creepy, as you can see in the photo above. :P

So I thought, ok, there has to be a color that will look right with this besides a plain nude lip! So then I put a shimmery salmon colored lipstick over the deep red and I thought it looked pretty decent.

I then lightly blotted the deep red and orange lipstick and put coraly pink lipstick over top as well as a coraly pink shimmery lipgloss. I then realized this was a mistake because Harley Quinn isn't really known for pink. lol

I realize that I would have been safe with a nude  lip...but where is the fun in that?? :P I used all the reds I had but ended up not being happy with any of them. If I had to choose, I would have just went with the first orange toned red that I used which is what I am wearing in the photo above. What would have made this look complete is 3 little red diamond shaped jewels on the outer corner of the eyes, just like the symbol on her costume. I spent quite a while searching and still couldn't find the right size, shape, or color for this look at Michaels :P I did pick up a wheel with assorted sizes and colors of other jewels though. I cannot wait to experiment with them for my new looks!! :) Until next time....ta-ta! <3

I think your lips would have to shine a bit more due to the fact that from the above pic of Harley Quinn, her lips look shiny. They have that shine thing going.
