♕ The Pokémon Series ~ Umbreon ♕
{Eeveelutions Mini Series}


Happy Easter everyone! :D Hope you're having a fintastic day! ♥

New episode of The Pokémon Series! We moved on to Gen II eeveelutions: last week we talked about Espeon, the psychic type Sun Pokémon; today I'm going to show you Umbreon, the dark type Moonlight Pokémon, aka the counterpart of Espeon! (And we're basically done with Gen II eeveelutions, next week we'll move on to Gen IV!)


Umbreon, the Moonlight Pokémon.
Type: Dark 
"Umbreon evolved as a result of exposure to the moon's waves. It hides silently in darkness and waits for its foes to make a move. The rings on its body glow when it leaps to attack."

Must say, when I first say Umbreon when they released Gen II back on 2000 it really scared me XD It really embodies the dark type, with its deep black fur and red eyes. But I also was intrigued by its gold rings, that glows in the dark and when it attacks. Over time, though, I end up liking and appreciating this mysterious Pokémon - and I was eager to create its look!
I had a very clear idea of what makeup I wanted to create for Umbreon: black all over the lid, with a gold ring in the middle; a very defined V shape on the outer corner, to represent its tail, of course with the gold band included. I still love the outcome (remember, I created this look months ago!), on a second thought I would probably make the ring less circular and more oval - as seen on Umbreon's legs and forehead - and the outer shape more slender and less bulky.


I applied a thin layer of eyeprimer first, then I applied a quite thick layer of Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline by MAC Cosmetics as a black base - as I wanted this look to be the blackest possible, just like Umbreon. I applied it on both lids and on the outer corner too, drawing the tail shape; I left two areas empty: one for the golden ring on the centre of the lid, and one band on the tail. There, I applied another eyepencil as a base (this time, a gold one) drawing the gold ring and the band. Once I was all set with both bases, I applied the eyeshadows on them. I applied a matte black pigment first, pressing it on the black base, being careful not to touch the golden areas. For the gold details, I used my favourite pure gold mineral eyeshadow in 24K by U-Makeitup. 


I decided to add a soft blend on the crease & lower lid area, keeping the outer corner shape neat and sharp. To do so, I used Fossil eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics as transition shade. On the inner corner I decided to apply a red colour - like Umbreon's eyes - so I used another eyeshadow by NABLA, Fahrenheit; on the brow bone, needless to say, I used Antique White.
I gave up on the eyeliner this time - I highly doubt it would stand out on such a black look! - so I skipped this step and moved on to the final touches: I applied Feline on my waterlines, added falses lashes and lastly applied mascara on both upper and lower lashes.

Edit: I almost forgot about the brows! As you already know, I usually define them with the same product (Eyebrow in Strut by MAC Cosmetic or Brow Pot in Mars by NABLA Cosmetics) - but this time, I decided to use a darker shade to better match Umbreon's vibes. So I used another Brow Pot by NABLA, this time in the shade Uranus.

  1. E se Espeon come ti ho detto è la mia eeveelution preferita da piccola mi identificavo meglio in Umbreon. Non so perché. Quel nero marchiato di giallo ha sempre avuto qualcosa di familiare :)
    Anche questo fatto benissimo, la forma della coda perfetta.
