Do makeup like Miko from Exist Trace in the "Vanguard" music video

exist†trace is a popular Japanese all-female metal band, and their singer Miko is something of a heavy metal beauty queen for modern times. This video will teach you how to replicate her makeup look from the band's video for "Vanguard".

From the Creator:

Things you want to focus on:
Big doll like eyes with batty lashes: no more dark, matte black circles of the visual kei norm. When Visual Kei bands hit real mainstream it looks like their makeup is a lot less crazy but that could just be my thinking. replace the gel/liquid liner with simple black eye shadow. invest in 2 pairs of false lashes because she wears them on both bottom and top lid. i bought two but messed up the bottom ones XD

big fluffy curls: as you know my hair is a semi mullet. I used my 18" and 12" extensions for length and volume. just curl and tease away
