I bought a plain black eye patch at the corner drugstore for less than $5. Then I poked holes through it, and screwed on some vicious 1" metal spikes.
For the shoot, I wanted it to look like maybe the spikes had injured my eye, so I dripped fake blood (no, I won't give you my secret recipe for making it! haha) down my face, using a Q-Tip. I let that dry some, and then did an extremely smokey eye using black eyeliner and eyeshadow. I blended it outward a great deal using blending brushes and a clean wedge-shaped makeup sponge. I highlighted the brow bone with some white eyeshadow, and then carefully drew my eyebrows on with black eyeliner in a dramatic way. Then, I used black eyelash glue to adhere some big sweeping lashes to the eye without the patch by Makeup Forever. Then I added some blush, and finally, a purplish lipstick that I blotted and then, for the finishing touch, I slicked on some shimmery clear lip gloss.
