Lyric Inspired Makeup #4| Abigail By King Diamond

I was inspired when listening to Poison Prince by Amy MacDonald to do makeup inspired by the song. So I thought, instead of doing the actual makeup look the artist wears in the music video, what about makeup that this song inspires you to wear! So this is the series! And I hope you enjoy it! Any song recommendations, leave a comment!

Another recommendation from my boyfriend when I asked him what song do I do this time. We both absolutely love Heavy Metal and I wanted to have an influence to the lyrics while still staying true to the band. King Diamond are story tellers. Their album tells a story. From start to finish. Abigail is a demon spirit, who a the lady of a couple, is carrying within her unborn baby, I know, gruesome. But they are very horror orientated, which which what inspired this look! Dark and bold! I promise I’ll go back to “normal” songs next time. But I absolutely love Heavy Metal so thought I would do a nod to that this time!

If you want to listen to it, I would recommend to hear the whole album for the story, but this song is available here –

I started this look with a base, this time I used Painterly Paint Pot by MAC. I then went into MACs Copperplate, and blended that into my crease with a fluffy brush. The I went into Typographic and blended that, focusing it deep into my crease and outer corner and feathering it out. I contained to do so until I was happy with the saturation. I then cut my crease using Makeup Revolution Cut Crease Canvas. And applied MACs Gesso over that and in my inner corner. For the lower lash line I applied Copperplate heavily and then went in with a pencil brush and Typographic and blended that out but still heavily. I applied my Clinique High Impact Eyeliner in Blackened Black to tightline. I wanted a heavy and angular liner too. So went in with my L’Oréal Paris Superliner Perfect Slim Eyeliner in Black. I then, for added effect, drew an upside down cross. As a symbol of the demon but not as a satanic symbol, not at all. Instead as a symbol to show unworthiness to Jesus. Which could contribute during an exorcism. I know…dark…but I felt it fitting for this look! I then applied my Essence False Lash Effect Lash Princess mascara and 121 lashes from Eylure. And the look was complete!

I hope you enjoyed this look. Slightly darker twist! But I get to show you my slightly more twisted side 😂

Thank you so much for reading! 💛✨
