A Song of Ice and Fire Series

I ♥ the series A Song of Fire and Ice. I read the first book, A Game of Thrones, about two years ago, but I didn't have the money to buy the next books. When I did manage to buy the books, I started to read it again and I am still eager to keep reading. I simply love the characters. Tyrion is still one of my favorites though!
Because I am reading it and because I love the series, why not take the opportunity to make a series out of it? Right now, I am planning on doing looks based on the Houses, their sigils, and their Coat of Arms. This way I can enjoy the books and my makeup together! To kickoff the series, I made a look based on the title and the overall theme of the books (so far anyways!). Ice and fire; north and south; Starks and Lannisters.

 A Song of Ice and Fire Look

Tutorial 

1. On your primed lid, take Anemone on a flat brush (MAC 239) and apply it on the lid.
(I just applied it in the inner half, but I suggest applying it on the entire lid)

2. Then, with a crease brush (ELF Contour Brush) apply Bubblebeam on the entire crease. Taper the color outwards.

3. Apply a glitter liner. I used a Lise Watier liner in Sunshine, but any glitter liner will work just fine.
Then, apply a black pencil liner on the waterline and wing it out a bit.

4. With a small brush (Tokidoki brush) apply Ganondorf, a very dark red, on the lower lash line and on the wing that we made with the black pencil liner. Extend the dark red to the inner corner as well.

5. Take any fluffy brush (ELF Contour Brush) and apply Garnet, a bright copper toned red,just below Ganondorf. Really work in the color on the edge of the dark red.

 6. Apply mascara, and you if you want apply falsies.

 Do you like my nails? They unintentionally matched my makeup and my shirt :)

  1. The glitter liner really makes the whole look complete, IMO. :D It's so sparkly yet subtle at the same time (if that's even possible; it's the only way i can describe it haha!)
