Within Temptation “Paradise” Inspired Makeup Tutorial: Sharon

Hello Music Lovers of the world!

Today I will be doing a look inspired by Paradise from Within Temptation (Duh Kirsten, we can read). This one will be for Sharon, their lovely lead singer. I’ve been following this band for about 3 years now and absolutely love their music. They are a symphonic metal band, which means they have a heavy metal influence but still soften it a bit with the sounds of an orchestra. In other words, the hybrid baby of two amazing genres of music. Within Temptation has changed their sound over the years, which although most people won’t agree, I find that is a good thing. It shows that the band is willing to experiment and grow, not stick to the same thing all the time. And you guys know me- I love experimentation lol.

For the makeup look, I decided to do Sharon first since she is the lead of the band and I wanted to pay homage to her. It’s not a particularly hard look, but like I mention in the video, I did go a bit more dramatic than the original look. That being said, I absolutely love how Sharon looks in this video. She and Tarja both are extremely well put together- very clean, and wearing white- while the world around them is essentially turned to crap (that usually happens in a post apocalyptic world). So without further adieu, here’s the video for the look 🙂
