Face
Apply a light turquoise color like the Turquoise 000 color from the Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Case all over your face, including the eyelids. Contour and highlight with the brown and light beige shadows from the Pixi Holiday 2011 Ultimate Beauty Kit as desired. Using a black pencil liner like MAC Feline Eye Kohl, draw on switches from the forehead down to the cheekbone and by the lips. Go over the lines with a black cream or gel liner like the Black 011 shade from the Make Up For Ever 12 Flash Color Case for a more dramatic effect.

Eye
Fill in the eyebrows with a reddish brown eyeshadow from the Pixi Holiday 2011 Ultimate Beauty Kit. Darken the crease with a dark gray eyeshadow like MAC Knight Divine. Next, apply the Jealousness Waterproof Eyeliner in Smoked Black BK-II along the upper lashline. Curl your eyelashes, apply a coat of black mascara then a set of full lashes like Makeup For Life Lashes in Diva on top. Reapply your liquid eyeliner and make sure to fill in any gaps between your natural lashes and the fake lashes. Rim the lower waterline with MAC Feline Eye Kohl and apply Ardell Babies fake lashes.

Lips
Start by outlining the shape of your lips with MAC Cherry Lip Pencil. Using a lip brush, apply MAC Russian Red Lipstick onto the lips.
