Hi Guys and Dolls!

Let’s have a little chat shall we? I wanted this to get up just in time for Halloween, but I have a few roadblocks on the way, in fact -This video gave me hell! Well, let’s give credit where it’s due… Sony Vegas 9 made it impossible for me to get this video to you any sooner. I won’t bore you with the details, but I will say that I had to re-edit this 3 times, tried rendering it in all different file types, and eventually I downloaded an upgrade of my video editing software (Vegas 9 wouldn’t render the video. The ol’girl just quit).  Anyway, this was a labor of love and the bottom line is that I’m excited to share this with you, and I think it’s something you’ll enjoy, even though it’s no longer Halloween.

    I think if you skipped the black lipstick and did something a little more girly, this would be a GORGEOUS green look. The black lipstick takes it to a completely different place. Kind of goes to show that styling is everything.

    I noticed in your video that you had some feathering issues with the lip tar. From what I could tell in the vid you were right you used waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much, less is more with that stuff, you can always build, but too much will feather BAD! Also, after you apply the lip tar outlining your lips with concealer will definitely help keep it from feathering. Hope that helps you in the future! <3

    Awesome look as always!!!!

    I love it!! I would love to see more like this. I struggle with heavier eye makeup but this makes me want to keep trying.

    This look really suits you Cora! It’s beautiful, bad ass and fun!

  15. November 10, 2011 / 5:24 am

    This look rocks my socks from top to bottom! It looks fantastic with the red hair you’re sporting, which, btw, is totally flattering to your skin tone! Love the black lips. Still want to try some OCC Lip Tars. Do you ever use a clear lip liner? Many brands make them and they really work to prevent feathering.

    One of the top looks I ever saw! Terrific! Looks beyond fabulous on you! And remember, Tink in the JM Barrie original version, was not the Barbiesque airbrushed wee faerie that Disney has given us. She was a peevish, jealous little c-word, who probably was our preschool introduction to Borderline Personality Disorder! She probably not only had black lips, but a black heart! I just might take the XMAS day off and try out this look! Verrrrry nice!

    Where did you get the LA Splash base/sealer? The green looks so fierce on you!

    My first tutorial I’ve seen using a 120 1st edition palette that actually made me want to get it. I love your Disney ‘princess’ twist series…100% addicted. When’s the next one? This is beyond Teh Sex.
    The best part is that I’m now picking up these little tips and tricks you use so you can create these badass amazing colourful looks everyone says a hooded eyeshape shouldn’t do or has no business doing. I love colour and now I get to look at your tutes in a whole new light like, ‘matte my arse. If Cora can create these looks, I can do it too and I’m not stuck on the liner and mascara boat the rest of my life.’
    Goth Tinkerbell rocks my kickarse world.
