you’re my only hope

Verging more into the geeky, here is my interpretation of three eye makeup designs for Star Wars!

Firstly, an R2-D2 design by Jangsara. Hers included rather beautiful gems, something I hadn’t entirely anticipated when I started looking on google! Using a white and blue from the ELF Little Black Beauty Book Cool, I applied the white all over the lid and up to the brow, then applied blue just over the lid. Next, a Superdrug silver eye pencil and Barry M Supersoft Eye Crayon in Blue to the line the eyes. I also used the eye crayon and Bourjois Liner Pinceau to do the markings over the lid and around the eye, and then finished with some kohl for the waterline.

The Boba Fett was a combination of two designs I spotted, the colours in ZombieFayce and the little gold flashes from kitkattmua. Again using the aforementioned ELF Little Black Beauty Book Cool (seriously, so many colours) a green applied across the lid and under the starwarseye and a red along the crease. Then a yellow from the Max Factor Max Effect Trio Eyeshadow to go under the brow. I lined the top lid with Bourjois eyeliner, and used that to draw little markings, to give it a cracked and battered look similar to the helmet. Then I used a Superdrug gold eye pencil to line underneath the eye, and a copper one to draw the three little lines. Finally, finished up with some kohl!

Due to my enduring laziness and indecisiveness, I did one eye in each, which might be a bit much for a day look, but I’ve worn worse…

because you are gold

goldpinkI’m a bit of a fan of a gold shimmery eye shadow. Yesterday, I posted about how I used it for a surprisingly non-trashy leopard print look. Today’s post is much simpler – a combination of gold and a contrasting eyeliner.

So, apply the gold as before, and throw a bit of copper in there too. Then a line of Barry M Kohl Pencil in Hot Pink under the lower lashes and winged out to the side, with some black along the waterline. Finish up with some mascara, and it’s good to go, or to look somewhat thoughtfully, somewhat smugly off into the distance, in your bedroom…
