Halloween Makeup Youtube Tutorial : Blind Mag REPO The Genetic Opera

After years of being asked to do Halloween Tutorials I'm pleased to say I've finally completed one. My Blind Mag Makeup Look that I wore for Halloween past. This one has drawn a good amount of traffic and emails my way so I hope it satisfies the request :) Click to Watch! and check out the movie sometime, it's pretty badass!
Instead of creating a bunch of new looks this year I decided to put forth my free time to work on a tutorial. It was supposed to be tutorialS, but I didn't get my other two (chucky doll & clockwork) done in time. Unlike most where doing youtube videos is a job or hobby, it's neither of mine, I have zero desire to be a personality on a website i'm much too private, and making videos isn't something I'm good at. So I hope you'll forgive my prolonged absences :) This took me forever to edit and it's still not how I wanted...frustrating I tell ya! I'd rather do makeup & blog :) But I'm so grateful for my subscribers and those who like my little to the point tutorials that I want to give something back there when I can. I do hope this dark ugly disturbing tutorial finds you well and that it may act as a guide if you choose to be the haunting songstress as your own costume this year :)
 Background on the Look:  Blind Mag is a Character in Repo! The Genetic Opera. Mag begins her final song for the Genetic Opera as she is lowered onto the stage from above. The song, sung in Italian, describes a bird of death that flies to remove an arrow that is attached to its wing. At the end of the song, as she is lifted back into the air, Mag asks that the bird come take her eyes and uses the large talons on her two fingers to rip them out herself. I took inspiration from her final scene for this makeup.
 The product's are essentially the same as the first with the exception of using a few different shadow's. I also changed it up this time by adding some blood to the eyes with Graftobian Blood Gel
