A Song of Ice and Fire Series: House Stark

Greetings from The Dark Side!

"Winter Is Coming."

Classic motto of House Stark of Winterfell, the noble family of the North. If you have read the series or watched Game of Thrones, then you will certainly be familiar with the Starks. Not only do they have badass direwolfs, but they also have the best motto, in my opinion.
The Stark Sigil: A grey direwolf on an ice-white field.

For this look I used white and grey as my main colors (since they are the sigil colors). But I also used a more dramatic eyeliner to represent the edgy-ness and harshness of the Starks, and a bit of a frosty blue to represent the coldness of Winterfell. The lips are a red stain. Cold often makes your lips red, but I thought this would be appropriate for the Starks because of their direwolfs. The direwolfs are often shown defending their masters and this means that they attack/maul an attacker/enemy. Their snouts are then covered in blood. The red lip shows this ^_^ That TOTALLY did not sound creepy at all >_<"

Let me know what you think of this look!

  1. My boyfriend watches Game of Thrones but I don't, though I think you did a nice job with the eye makeup! I love how you used a lip stain because it does remind me of blood stains.

  2. Yup, that didn't sound creepy AT ALL. XD
    That aside, I love this look. I think it'd be perfect for a winter ball or something similar. I really should get around to reading the series. For now, when anybody mentions Stark, Robert Downey Jr's face pops up in my head, lol.

    1. Hehe~
      Oh thanks! And omg yes! It totally reminds me of Tony Stark!

  3. Hello fellow GOT addict! I finished the series and I'm onto the books. The show's amazing. I love how you did the '3 claws' or winged eyeliner. It looks edgy, so befitting of the Starks! I think Aya Stark would totally rock this but not too sure about her sister though.

    I love to see you do a Tully or Lannister inspired makeup! Wonder how would that look.

    1. Ohhh definitely! I see Sanza wearing something super sophisticated and more Tully than Stark. I actually did a Lannister look =3

  4. This is such a cool idea for an eye look! GOT IS THE BEST. I love how you interpreted it- especially the blood on the direwolves' snouts. Definitely not creepy haha :)

  5. that three-pronged liner is badass!

    1. Thanks! It was my first time trying something like that. I definitely want to try it again in the future~

  6. Such a pretty look. Your blending is perfect & I love the triple winged liner!

  7. I absolutely LOVE this look and the 3winged liner, it's gorgeousss :D

  8. This is so hot. Love that hint of blue with the greys.

  9. I FREAKING LOVE THIS! especially the eyeliner. Ned Stark would be proud :)
