♕ Halloween 2016 ♕ Joker ~ Suicide Squad ♕

When I was asked to do Harley Quinn's inspired look, I knew I had to do also a Joker inspired look - they're "the King and Queen of Gotham City", after all. Also, I liked Jared Leto's Joker a lot - definitely my favourite Joker so far - sooo I couldn't leave him out u.u
And, since Halloween is approaching so fast, I thought this could be part of this year's Halloween series ;D

Contrary to Harley Quinn's look - which was quick, easy and messy on purpose, and pretty iconic - this one required a lot of brainstorming. I wanted to do an inspired makeup, not an actual Joker movie look, if you know what I mean. No erased nor green brows, for example. So I had to choose what colours to use first, and then place them properly. Tricky but worth it - I think it represents Joker quite well, let me know your thoughts ;D

Eyeprimer first, black base second - as usual, Feline Eye Kohl by MAC Cosmetics (the best black eyepencil I've tried so far). I applied a thin layer, as I wanted a not-too-black result; then I applied Nocturne by NABLA Cosmetics over it - it's a matte black eyeshadow, but not the blackest. On the lower lid I used the black eyeshadow only, blending it out evenly.

For the crease I choose a matte purple shade, Mimesis by NABLA: I applied it into the crease using a pencil brush, blending it with the black. I used Narciso as transition colour to soften the blending. On the inner corner I applied a bright green pigment - Jade Pearl loose eyeshadow by NYX - a little tribute to Joker's iconic green hair.

I made the eyeliner using a silver eyeshadow wet with Fix + (as always, Frozen by NABLA, practically perfect in every way), gently scratching some product from the pan, as I don't like to get the pan wet.
I left the lower waterline nude - no pencil at all - but I added a touch of red on the lashline (Fahrenheit by NABLA). Lastly, I applied Antique White on my brow bone, false lashes and mascara (just on my upper lashes, this time). Final touch: I draw the J right below the outer corner, using the black pigment I usually use as eyeliner and the finer eyeliner brush I own.
That's it for my Joker inspired make up - evocative and eye-catching, but not that hard to recreate I guess. Very happy with the result, plus I managed to use all the colours I thought would fit the Joker. Again, let me know what you think about it!
Needless to say, this look also requires bright red lips - just like Harley Quinn's!

  1. Ogni volta che ammiro le tue creazioni, rimango sempre colpita dall'eyeliner!
    Prodotti Nabla usati come *-*

    1. Grazie! ♥ Io sono decisamente fissata con l'eyeliner, lo uso in tutte le salse XD E gli ombretti NABLA sono una favola usati come tali, davvero *___*

  2. Credo che sia bellissimo, molto più di quello di Harley Quinn! Più pensato, più profondo, più oscuro... e comunque molto, molto calzante nella sua originalità!

    1. Grazie tesoro! (Mi era sfuggito il tuo commento, chiedo venia! D:)
      Sì in effetti quello di Harley Quinn è alquanto standard, mentre questo l'ho dovuto (re)inventare ex-novo! E la cosa non mi è dispiaciuta affatto devo dire ;D

  3. lo adoro, è studiatissimo e originale!
