One Brand Tutorial Black Moon Cosmetics | Cruelty-free & Vegan

– Hey, friends. It’s great to see you. Welcome back. For those of you who don’t
know me, I’m Courtney, I’ve got Nyx and Pheadra hanging
out behind me on the bed. You can see Nyx is like
right here, the black dog and Phaedra’s passed out back on the pillows, the white dog. So for today’s one brand tutorial, I’m bringing you the brand
Black Moon Cosmetics. This was a reader request. This is an Indie Brand that
will be available at Ulta very very soon. So what I love about them
is that they’re cruelty free and they’re vegan and they’re Gothic and they’re Indie. And they make some amazing lip colors and I really like their eye products too and their highlighter Catshark
is my absolute favorite. So anyway, I’m going to go
ahead and take you through putting together a tutorial
using their products. I’ve already prepped my eyes with Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in Sin and I set it with my Cozette
beauty setting powder. We’re going to use the
Black Moon Cosmetics, Orb of Light palette. And I’m going to go out
of my comfort zone today and try this ugly ass mustard
yellow color right here. I will apply Harvest with the Goss 5 brush along my lower lid. All the way in and all the way out. I’m going to basically take the
color just a little bit past where the fold of my
eye is right down here. And then start working it
up and into the crease. I’m putting my brush, when
it’s packed with product right here at the outer part of the eye and filling that in. And then once I know that
most of the product is off of the brush, I’m going to
drag it up through the crease of my hooded eyes. And just start blending it a little bit. I’m going to switch to my Sigma
E25 brush, to soften this. I’m going to go back with
the Goss 20 and continue to build up this mustard yellow color. And I’m just continuing to lightly shade at the inner crease, to help me, well I’m really trying to help create the illusion
of a crease on my hooded eyes. I hope you can see that. I really just lightly blend
in this mustardy color. And I’m putting a little bit
of the mustardy yellow color on the outer half of the lid, but I really don’t want a lot there, I just want a little. Okay, so once you have this
Harvest color where you like it, the next step is to put
on color on your lid. I’m going to use this color
from Black Moon Cosmetics, called E.T. And I’m really just putting
this onto my mobile lid. And I’m doing the blink cut crease method, although I’m really not going
to be cutting the crease so much as just kind of bringing see more to bring the sparkle up to. I really like the doe-foot
applicator on this. To let me round out
the shape of my crease. And I’m going to drag a little
bit of this lime green E.T color down at the inner corner a little bit. I’m going to layer a little
bit of Black Moon Hydrogen which is their blue liquid eye shadow, one of their blue liquid eye shadows. Just right at the outer one
corner or whatever of the eye. Although, wow, shit. I’m going to find a little
brush to blend with really fast. We’re trying the Real Techniques
brush for blending this. Well, that kind of looks cool. Okay, so what I ended up doing
was blending the blue color from the outside in with the green and I really think it looks cool. I’m very excited about this. I’ve wanted to play with
these guys for quite a while. I just haven’t had a chance until today. I’m going to line my upper lash line with the Balm’s Schwing Liner. I don’t know, eyeliner is always such
serious business for me, I can’t talk while I’m putting it on, at least not easily. Alright I’m just going
along the lower lid again and around the outer, part of the eye here. Add a little bit of dimension or contour right to the outer part of the eye. I’m basically shoving the brush
under the socket of my eye. And then I’m going to go
back to the Sigma E25 brush, and just soften that. And I’m just using this to
clean up all around the edges of Harvest. So my eyes are mostly done. The next part I’m going to put on is the Danessa Myricks Prism FX Lotion. And I use this as my primer, but this a complexion product
that can be used as a primer worn on it’s own, mixed
in with liquid or cream, blushes, highlighters, pretty
much anything you want. It’s an awesome product and it is my holy grail primer these days. It just works better
than anything I found, even the hourglass. I’m going to use the Idun
Minerals Dark Perfect Brows in Dark just to give my
brows a little bit of shape, I needed to do that, they’re
very sad at the moment. Since my hair is freshly
dyed, ’cause I saw my stylist, Cliff on Friday, you can probably tell, this isn’t going to match my hair, ’cause my roots are blue black or it looks like a black and blue. The mid section is a
beautiful deep violet purple and then the ends are the
neon blue that I’ve been doing for a while. Electric Nirvana. I am going to try a new foundation today. Because I need to test more
of these foundations out. This is the Osmosis CC Cream
in the shade Porcelain. I’m really excited about this product, because when I swatched
in on the back of my hand, it looked like it was a
perfect match for my skin tone. I asked Osmosis what they
recommended for application and they said just use a
foundation brush or your fingers. That was one pump of the foundation. I have basically glopped
it onto my cheeks. I’m going to dot this around
a little more at the center. And go back. I am using my Urban Decay
Optical Blurring brush. This is my favorite foundation brush. I use this and a flat brush most everyday. And the reason why is because the flat brush
usually makes it easy to dot around the face, especially if I’m mixing
up my own custom blend foundation by mixing in the Prism FX. And then this one just does
a great job of blending and making it melt with the skin, so that it’s not too heavy. If you ever have problems with
your foundation application and you’re struggling and you
just feel like it doesn’t look quite right, I always recommend
after you use your brush, go back with either your fingers or with a camp make up sponge,
’cause it’ll help suck up any excess make up that’s on your face. I feel like this is a
dead on match for my skin that looks great. And it is the perfect amount of coverage with the two pumps that
I used for my taste. So I hope this wears well,
’cause it looks great. I’m going to contour my cheeks with the Nudestix Sculpting Stick. Alright I’m using this Nyx
brush to try to blend this out, ’cause it’s pretty dense. Okay, so Black Moon
doesn’t have any blushes, but I’m going to use one
of their highlighters, because this is a weird
look that I’m doing. I’m going to use Shroom as my blush. Oh that is Shroom on my cheeks
as kind of like a blush. I know that Black Moon Cosmetics
has an iridescent green however I don’t own it. I’m going to use the closest
thing that I have to it, which is Melt Cosmetics Shadow play. But any sort of iridescent
green highlighter you can go to. And I’m basically just doing this as like a green highlight on my cheeks. And now I’m going to go
to Squid by Black Moon, which is their pure white highlighter. I’ve forgotten that I do want
to highlight around the eyes with Shadowplay that
the Melt Cosmetics cover so I’m using my Kat Von
Dee Shade and Light brush and highlighting right under
the outer part of the brow. And then blending with the
larger end of the brush. And I’ll highlight a little
bit at the inner corner. Out of this color right here,
in the Black Moon palette. By the way, I hate it when
palettes don’t have the names of colors right here, but on the back, and then I have to go look at the back and see which one is this, so yeah. I’m going to use that
color, which is called Cold. And I’m going to use my Makeup
Geek Chiseled Cheek brush, ’cause basically I just
want to get a little bit more definition going ’cause
I have all this shimmer on my cheeks. And it occurred to me
that, well, you know, there’s a great taupe in that palette, so. I’m going to use my big
ass Saucebox powder brush to just kind of lightly, blend in A’SQUIRREL over my cheeks, ’cause I put like three
cheek products on . I’m going to line and fill out my lips with Tarte’s Blackberry lip pencil. Alright, now that my lips
are lined and filled in with the black lip pencil and any black lip line pencil will do. I’m going to put on Black
Moon Cosmetics Murmaider. Which is like this blackened teal that looks fucking amazing. Ah, I love this color so much. Alright, so this look is very
much out of my comfort zone. It is using colors I don’t normally wear, aside from the lips. But I’m very very excited to have it done, share it with you. Just let me take off my little headband. Oh my God, my hair’s tangled. Alright so the last step
would be to add your mascara or false lashes, or
whatever you’re going to do. I have lash extensions so
that’s why I didn’t do anything with mine. Oh and I think I guess
I should do something on my waterline, ’cause it
looks a little unfinished. Let’s see, do I have
like a weird liner color we can put in the waterline? I want to line my lower
waterline with the Urban Decay, Walk of Shame pencil,
which is just a pale nude. Alright, let’s zoom in so you can see the finished look up close. Honestly, I love these colors together. I would’ve never worn them
together before today. But I’m really really into how this looks. I think this is cool. I hope you enjoyed this
mostly one brand tutorial featuring Black Moon Cosmetics. Again, like I said they’re
one of my favorite brands. They are Gothic, they’re
Indie, they’re cruelty free, they’re vegan. They basically check all the boxes for me, so I’m really really excited
that you can now find them at Ulta too. Let me know your thoughts
on this unusual look in the comments below. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up and share. Thanks so much for watching and I’ll see you in my next video.


  • Lola Murder says:

    I love it. And I feel the same way about mustard yellow shadows, lol

  • desi1790 says:

    This look turned out really cool.
    Please can you put a jewelry collection video in your future upcoming videos

  • Sidra Vitale says:

    Oh this look is looking so cool, I find that yellow more wearable than I ever expected…

  • Sidra Vitale says:

    Fabulous finished look!

  • HorrorBeautyFX says:

    Love this look @Phyrra Nyx ! I was excited when I heard Black Moon Cosmetics was coming to Ulta, don't get too excited it is all the "normal" colors ๐Ÿ™ I was so disappointed. I will just continue to buy from PZC site since Ulta is not carrying any of the cool colors I like.

  • Erika Costello says:

    I am living for your head band.

  • Pia Loves Color says:

    loving these colors on you!

  • Jen Marie says:

    I typically HATE mustard yellow colors but that one almost seems to have a weird green-brown/antiqued tone to it that makes it interesting! It really adds that grunge-y edge.

  • AliceintheRabbitHole says:

    Thanks for making this video! I saw the brand pop up on Ulta (sigh, the Ulta junkie life) and wasn't sure where to start. Now the palette is on my list haha!

  • faeriecrypt says:

    Really neat color combo! Beautiful on you.

  • RinaReviews says:

    Yay! When you asked about what other brands we wanted to see I was going to say Black Moon, but never got around to commenting! I love the color combo you made here and I was happy to see E.T. used. I got that trio too! I find I have to use it over other regular shadows to get the opacity I like, but they are so pretty and you don't see liquid lime greens everywhere haha

  • chlo J says:

    Ok I'm in love ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›

  • BeautyAnya76 says:

    Black Moon Cosmetics are my favorite! Love your eyeshadow look! BTW your headband is so cute! <3

  • Ghoultiful Hag says:

    I have been dying to try black moon cosmetics so I'm here for this video!

  • Vivianne White says:

    Your crown is AMAZING! And your eye look turned out amazing. I was always hesitant to use a mustard shade e/s UNTIL I saw a lot of YouTube videos of people using it in all kinds of amazingly creative ways. It wears much better than it looks in the pan. Love the green and the blue e/s when you applied it on top of it.

  • Confetti says:

    Love this combo and the headband! I also really like that you include the text as you go so I can look up the brushes, are zoomed in so it's clear to see (and later follow) your steps, and how you turned the extra plop of blue into part of the look for a really pretty result.

  • Binxcat4ever says:

    OMG I love this look! I would have shied away from mustard but the way you used it, it works so well. That green shadow shade is to die for! Thanks for this tutorial.

  • Liz Torres says:

    Love this eye look. I generally pull outwards my eyeshadow from the outer corners a lot with a dark color, I almost never leave it at this more round looking stage. I have down turned eyes so it lifts them a lot. Today though, I think my placement was very similar to yours, I just went about the application very differently : fluffy medium brush -> small crease brush -> two small flat brushes -> blend – > smudging brush -> liner brush.

  • jo_ v80 says:

    Serioulsy love that crown on your head and how exciting to see this brand go to Ulta!

  • Marcia Friedman says:

    I hope they'll have some in the store since seeing it in person would be great. The way you put these unusual colors together is amazing.

  • Josie Galaviz says:

    Loved your eye look and how you managed to make the mustard work. I love that shade myself, but can't recall wearing it since I pretty much stick to neutrals now a days. ๐Ÿ™

  • M K says:

    I have two black moon lipsticks. They pull way dark on me but are definitely fun colors and great quality.

  • Laura B says:

    That eye look is so stunning! Iโ€™ve had my eye on blackmoon cosmetics for a while, def gonna make a purchase soon!

  • Allison Cohen says:

    Oh wow, what an amazing headpiece! I love how you described the mustard yellow, lol. I actually like that shade as an accent for clothing, accessories or home decor, but against my skin, not so much. You did a good job with it!

  • JackOllie4 says:

    Fantastic headband!!!!! Beautiful makeup look, too.
    I am verrrrrryyyyy interested in that Osmosis CC cream, because I think I also have that "cool olive" skin tone. How did it wear? I notice that the packaging for this CC cream is different at the Amazon link than what you have, as well as what's on the Osmosis site. It looks like the same thing though?
    I'm so glad for Black Moon to be in Ulta … I hope they continue to "stay weird!"
    Oh, and your hair is looking so beautiful!

  • Claudia Materdomini says:

    Love the eyes, that neon green is awesome!

  • Sarah McCarthy says:

    I use that mustard to blend out everything for a tea stained look ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 25 Sweetpeas says:

    I would never know how to use that colors but whoa that all looks so neat together!

  • Polished Hippy says:

    Those liquid eyeshadows really pop over the murky green – interesting, creative look!

  • Slashed Beauty says:

    o m g your crown is AMAZING!!!!!

  • Jen Walker says:

    I already had an eye on the eyeshadow palette, but now I need to pick up the lime green shadow as well! Love it!!

  • Cosmetopia Digest says:

    You pulled off that mustard yellow so well! I can't go near that shade family.

  • Jennifer Joyce Beauty says:
