Hanahaki Disease (5/31)

(All photos are edited by me. The eyes, hair and background are edited but the makeup hasn’t been edited).

I actually found the inspiration for this disease on Instagram. I’d never heard of it before but it’s very popular within fandoms.

Hanahaki Disease is a fictional disease in which the victim coughs up flower petals when they suffer from one-sided love. It ends when the beloved returns their feelings, or when the victim dies. It can be cured through surgical removal but the victim’s romantic feelings disappear. I loved the idea of this and have since read lots of different fanfics about it! I’m a sucker for anything romantic!

So firstly I struggled for a while trying to think of a safe way to cover up my eye as I’d never done it before. Eventually I came up with the idea to build the piece off my face first. I used liquid latex and a mixture of tissues and cotton wool to build up a circle that would fit around my eye. Once I was happy that it wouldn’t touch my eye I just placed a piece of paper over the top with some liquid latex. When that was dry I glued on the fake flowers with liquid latex and left it overnight to dry.

The next morning when it was completely dry I trimmed around the edges of the circle to slim it down a little so you couldn’t see much of the paper underneath. I then used red face paint to paint in between each flower to look a bit like blood and to disguise the paper.

Before using it on my face I did the rest of my makeup because I knew I wouldn’t be able to see after I glued it on.

I used the L’Oreal Infallible Primer first and for my foundation I used a mixture of Revlon Colorstay 150 and Nyx Stay Matte but not Flat in Nude Beige because I’m a bit more tanned. To conceal under my one eye I used the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. I then set my face with the Rimmel Stay Matte translucent powder. For my brow I used the Makeup Revolution Ultra Brow palette. I used the P.Louise Base on my lids.

For my eyeshadow I started with the dark pink shade from the Morphe 35c palette and blended it up towards my brow. In my crease I used the red shade from the Morphe 35c palette and blended it into the pink. I then used the dark red shade from the Morphe 35n palette right in my crease and blended it out to the outer corner of my eye. I then cut my crease with the P.Louise Base and used Osun and Zuba from the Juvias Place The Magic palette over the top. I blended the outer corner with the same dark red from the Morphe 35n palette. I used the same colours underneath and blended them out. For the highlight in the corner of my eye and on my brow bone I used the pink highlighter from the Makeup Revolution Cool Glow palette. For my lashes I used the Nessychoice lashes in 05.

For my lips I used the Nyx Soft Matte in Madrid on just the centre of my lips and then used the Nyx Lip Gloss over the top to create a glossy finish.

I then used liquid latex to glue the eye piece to my face. I added a few extra flowers on the corners to make it blend in better and also added some flowers down my chin. For the flower near my mouth I kept the stem on and just put the stem in my mouth to keep it from moving, just so I didn’t need to put liquid latex near my mouth. I used some red face paint all over the flowers and then blobbed on some fake blood so it dripped down my face.

And that’s the look finished! It actually wasn’t as uncomfortable as I thought it would be although I couldn’t see a thing! I loved how this turned out, just how I imagined it and I love the story behind it too!
