Psychobilly Look One

I’ve never done a psychobilly makeup tutorial or posted a lot of my psychobilly looks on here so I decided to change that. For those who don’t know what psychobilly is, here are some definitions.

Psychobilly is a rock music fusion genre that mixes elements of Rockabilly and Punk Rock. 

TheFreeDictionary.com defines it as “loud frantic rockabilly music.”

   About.com  says that it takes the traditional countrified  rock style know as rockabilly ramping up its speed to a sweaty pace, and combining it with punk rock, sci-fi, and horror film imagery.  SO DUH, OF COURSE I LOVE IT!

As far as my definition goes as psychobilly makeup, I believe it’s taking the traditional rockabilly makeup and amping it up with  bright colors, different color lipstick rather than classic red, different color combinations, more eyeliner, longer lashes, etc.

Here is a blue and green psychobilly look and tutorial which is a color combo that I don’t use a lot in makeup. This look was a new one for me and was fun to do and play around with. MAKEUP SHOULD ALWAYS BE FUN! THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! IF MAKEUP ISN’T FUN, THAN REALLY WHAT’S THE POINT?

Enjoy and listed below are the colors and products I used:

EyeShadows:

First I used “Safe Word,” as a transition shade from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Androgyny.” 

Second I used the green color “EXU,” from the Urban Decay Jean-Michel Basquiat palette. I spray MAC cosmetics Prep and Prime Fix on my brush before dipping it into the green.

Third color I used was also from the “Androgyny” palette in the dark blue shade, “Swallow,” just about my crease.

My crease color is from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics palette, “Beauty Killer” in the sparkly blue shade, “Expensive.” I sprayed my angled shadow brush again with the prep and prime to make the blue glitter pop and put it in my crease and slowly dragged it down to the outer corner of my lid.

The last color I used in my inner corners is “Rich Bitch” from “Beauty Killer.” I sprayed my detailed brush and pressed the glittery gold in the inner corners of my eyes to make them pop. 

I really love this color combination.

I did my eyeliner wings as normal but made them longer and more extreme. Underneath my eyes I took a small brush and lined my eyes in the two blue colors I used on top, darker at the outer corner, brighter blue towards the inner. I applied mascara to both top and bottom lashes and lined my waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 waterline in black.

For my highlight, I used my David Bowie highlighter from Bitch Slap Cosmetics and used blush from Stila in both “Romantic” and “Playful.”

Last for my lipstick, I used “Venus Fly Trap” from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Chrome Collection. I normally wear my classic red lipstick with this look but I thought the green color was a fun alternative. 

My look was then complete and I’m very happy with how it turned out.

Look of the Day

   I decided to do this post because my look today wasn’t rockabilly or pinup. It was more of a retro, blue-eyed shadow, 60’s look, especially with my half up, half down bouffant. I experimented with this look in the morning and was very impressed with it. Here are the pictures I took today with my 60’s retro and vintage look. Hope you enjoy!
