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!

  3. Wow, you were definitely up to the challenge! This is great! Love the way you've sculpted and shaded the eye with the "Stark" (pun intended) contrast of shadows. And the tinted aqua lashes are stunning! xo

    1. No problem Sarah! Yeah they work really well! Also works with loose eyeshadows too if you use them wet on a mascara wand or even just a liner brush :)
