Make Up Look: Iron Man Inspired!
Hey guys! So as I type this, I am bobbing excitedly up and down in my seat as I am going to see Iron Man 3 tonight - midnight opening and everything! As my boyfriend booked the tickets I had a thought, I should totally do an Ironman inspired make up look to celebrate the occasion!
Ironman is pretty huge and I knew when I sat down at my dressing table, it was going to be a challenge doing make up as epic as Tony Stark himself! This was only made harder by the fact that red and yellow really don't seem to go well. I struggled getting all the appropriate colours in but also getting them to... well, go together! Anyways in the end, I came up with this and let me warn you now... its not wearable. You can't wear this on the street, on a night out or well... anywhere! But I really enjoy letting my creative energy go and just coming up with something crazy! So I hope you like it and more than anything... I hope it does the Ironman justice!!
My main aim for the look was using yellow/gold and red (of course) but also trying somehow to incorporate the light blue which you see in the lights and Arc reactor. I painted my eyelashes to try and create the same sort of shape (my eye as the Arc reactor but obviously thats a bit of a stretch of the imagination haha!) I always find red a funny colour to work with particularly in the crease, so I paired it with a brown cut crease to make it slightly less garish!
For this look I used the Lime Crime Chinadoll palette in the 3 colours pictured, along with MAC Brun in my crease. I also used the Lime Crime Uniliner in Blue milk to "tint" my lashes :)
I hope you like this look, I really hope I did Tony Starks famous suit justice!
