FOTN: Wearable CHOLA inspired look

I've always been fascinated with the Chola style makeup look from the extremely thin eyebrows to the harsh and dark lip liner. It violates all the norms of beauty...if there is such a thing and it pretty much says "I don't give a sh*t". It does look kinda funny, but In my opinion, it's unique and beautiful. There's also a long and interesting history and culture behind this look so do your own research and don't be ignorant ^_^.

Anyway, I was inspired to create a similar makeup look but I came up with a version of my own. It's more tone down from the original and very wearable.

For the eye makeup, I used silver, dark blue and brown shadows and I used a dark brown lip liner and created a thick line on my natural lip line. Then I blended it with my finger but not too much because I still want the outline to show. Then I just used concealer to stain my lips. You can use a nude lipstick if you want, but a concealer will work just fine.
