Deathrock Leopard look

When I was in Leipzig at WGT, I couldn’t help but notice the number fo fab looking deathrockers around. My favourite hairstyles on them were brightly coloured death hawks, with leopard print tattoos on the side of their heads that showed through the shaved sides. I myself am not brave enough for that hairstyle, but I did a faux-death-hawk….and added leopard print make-up instead!

First up, my day/early evening deathrock look, minus the leopard. I had black make-up around the eye itself, with  a veil of purple eyeshadow underneath the eye, below the highlighter on the browbone, and  underneath the cheekbone. My hair was loosely teased, and with a straightening iron I got my fringe into a quiff.  I didn’t wear false eyelashes or dark lippy.


For night-time clubbing I redid the black and purple shadow, threw on big false eyelashes with bobble ends top and bottom, and added some leopard spots. I drew c’s in black eyeliner, making sure to keep them at different angles and in different sizes. I filled the c’s in with silver highlighter pen, and drew little dots in between in black, as well as some other dots at the outer brow area, just for fun.

I then did my lips in standard old-school black (with a topcoat to seal the lippy), and pushed the teased hair back into more of a point behind my head, with slides at the side to keep it flat.

This side view shows the leopard and hairdo better, and at right is the full outfit.


I did the leopard spots several times while I was away, and it does get quicker as you gain confidence. Give it a try – it’s a cool look!

Creature of the Night by Manic Panic

I’m so excited by this new make-up line! As a current user of both the make-up and hair-dye, I need no convincing where Manic Panic is concerned.  Anyone who knows the history of Tish and Snooky, knows they are PUNK GRRLS from way back, who understand the need for bright colours, deep blacks and dramatic make-up – just the way we alternative girls like it.

SO it’s no surprise that their new make-up line Creature of the Night focusses on just those things.

Basically, the range is made up of kits – including the Dramatic Eye kit and Dramatic Lip Kit – which you can take on your nightly outings or travelling overseas (things I do a lot of!)

There are 5 kits to choose from: some for eyes, some for lips, and some combined. Each has charts showing you how to get the look, and each has 3 degrees of raciness or daringness – PG13, R and X rated. Below is the “Melodrama” kit in red, and the “Psychodrama” kit in purple.



Admittedly, this post is a teaser, as I haven’t yet tried any of the products myself. But I’m on the case, and will certainly be doing a post when I get my paws on them! In the meantime, check the line out yourself, and be tempted to take a walk on the wild side make-up wise.
