Tutorial: Archandroid

Posted: February 20, 2011 in Dramatic, Tutorials

Once you listen to Janelle Monae, you’ll  probably understand why all of my EOTD’s turn out the way they do.  You can’t listen to that album and not just SEE COLORS.  I’ll come out and say that I could probably have an entire series based off each of the songs on The Archandroid.  But for today it’s just a little something from the colors on the album cover.  You’ll find a picture tutorial behind the cut along with some other delicious photos.  A Very Long Products List (In order of application):

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Revlon Cream Illuminance Quad in Electric Pop (Blue base)
Lancome Eyeshadow in Pose (Metallic Copper)
Fyrinnae Chlorphyll (Shimmer Golden Orange)
Sugarpill Buttercupcake (Bright Matte Yellow)
Sugarpill Afterparty (Electric Shimmer Blue)
Maybelline Eyeshadow Duo in Irish Mist (Light Shimmer Lime)
Boots Liquid eyeliner (Champagne dots )
Revlon Colorstay Pencil Eyeliner (Waterline)
Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner (Upper Lashline and Brows)
Kat Von D Tequila (Shimmer Highlight)

1. Prime eyes.  Add blue cream shadow to outer half and below lashline.
2. Pat a copper eyeshadow onto the middle  of your eyelid.
3. Blend Chlorophyll into the copper on the inner side and blend Afterparty into the bronze on the outer.  Take Afterparty underneath the lashline and place a bright yellow on the inner corner.
4. Blend a black shadow on top of the area where the copper and blue meet.  Highlight the middle of your lower lash line with a shimmery lime.  Highlight your brow bone and add black eyeliner.  Add small dots in a light color.


  1. kewl. you make me want to do an Eminem album cover inspired EOTD. you need to lend me that album someday so I can listen to it. btw where are those falsies from?

    • mytigerlily says:

      The falsies are from Beauties Factory. << very good place to buy lashes in bulk. Or even not in bulk b/c the shipping is so damn cheap!! And I highly encourage this Eminem EOTD.. although I can't exactly picture it… HAHA

  2. Amazing and beautiful, per usual :) I really love this, I might try to do a really toned-down version of it (I’ll link back to you if I do, of course)

    You did such a great job!
    I am just wondering what type of camera do you use to take such clear photos?
    Hope you have a great day!
