I am going to kill Bill

Some Kill Bill inspired make-up for you today! Its going to be irregular, but I'm going to do a film inspired look from time to time. I have a few ideas - Labyrinth, Meg from Disney's Hercules - but please leave a comment on this post if you'd like to see my take on your favourite film :)

Now, I had it in my head that the suit Uma Therman wears in the movie has a checkered stripe down the side of it, like a NY cab, and it doesn't, but I realised that once I had already started. I had in my head that she drives a taxi too, when I know full well it's the Pussy Wagon. Whatever. It's *inspired* y'all.

As always, never as good as it looks in my head but here it is!

The checkerboardness is odd. Its very hard to paint it on your eyes, especially because mine have quite a lot of fold in them, so up close at certain angles, it looks really messy when at others it looks perfect. It took me sooooooo long to do as well!

I used:

Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk
Yellow from Sleek Bohemian Palette
MAC e/s in Gesso
Nyx single e/s in White Pearl
Bright yellow and mustard shadows from 120 palette
Collection 2000 Fast Strokes liquid eyeliner in black applied with MAC 210 brush
Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Mascara (lost my Telescopic when I was pissed the other night :S)

Maybelline Moisture Extreme Liner in 80 Red
Nyx Round lipstick in Fire
Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick in Scream (inner corners)
Collection 2000 Pure Gloss in Icing

Revlon Colourstay 150 Buff
Sleek Contour Palette in Light
120 e/s as blush
Sue Moxley transluscent powder
Mixture of Barry M Cherry Red and Black Dazzle Dusts with Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipstick in Royal Red

Elf Studio Powder Brush (foundation)
Elf Studio Blush Brush (contour)
187 (blush)
Barry M powder brush (must throw this POS out)
Celia Birkwell angled brush (for the 'blood')

Do people care what I've used? I personally like seeing what people have used, mostly because when you look at a look, you don't really realise how many products people use, and I think its good to see where people use high and low end brands, too.

Anyway, much love and kisses, and a big welcome to my new followers!

P.S: I got my 'Makeup your mind' by Francois Nars book last night and it is fantastic! Each page is a before and after shot, with a clear layer that goes over the after shot showing you what products go where and what they are. Its such a beautiful book, I'll do a full review if people want.


  1. This is so cool, I love it! It definitely makes me think of Kill Bill. I like seeing product lists so I know what someone used if I see something I really like :)

  2. great job it looks awesome!!!!!!

  3. This is great! I thought about doing the checkered thing at one point and then, I dunno... I forgot? lol

  4. Aw, thanks ladies! This was super fun to do.

    My dad says my shadow in the 2nd pic looks like Alfred Hitchcock... my mum says I look like a crash test dummy!

  5. Woah, that's incredible!!! Amazing job.


  6. The blood splat effect is really cool!

  7. This is awesome. Kill Bill 2 is like one of my fav movies ever! Seriously <3 I would love to see more of these movie inspired looks, they are so creative!! Your awesome girly =]

  8. I really like the blood splatter effect--very cool! I like seeing what people use, in case I'd like to buy the product (or find a reasonable dupe)

  9. YESSSS! And next you should do a Pussy Wagon look. HAHA I really like this, so creative!

  10. So cool!:D
    ...and everything girly under the sun!

  11. I care what people use. Because if I see something awesome that I don't have...I must know what it is so I can get it. :-)
    This is a really cool and creative look. So fun!

  12. This is the coolest thing I've seen in AGES.

    And I like seeing what people used, so I can look up swatches and maybe buy it if it interests me that much :D

  13. I like to see what people use to ....Sometimes they use something to blend or to highlight that changes completely the look but is barely noticeable (is that even a word ?). Awesome work ! The pics are absolutely perfect ...

  14. You have a very steady hand, dear! So cool.:-) The outcome of the chessboard pattern is perfect.

  15. HOLY $#!T! This is awesome! I'm rather late to the party on comments here but sorry, this is a great idea for makeup!
