Psychotic Galactic Empress

Hii ♥
Sorry for my lack of daily posts! I hope I can make it up with this post~ This is more "editorial" since many of you wouldn't wear this much makeup. This look was really random; I was just randomly aplying colors on my lid, but then I saw it going somewhere and it eventually turned out to be this! That is also why I don't have  a picture tutorial, but I hope you like it anyways!

I imagine, if I ruled the universe, I would do my makeup a little something like this...
Alas! How unfortunate. A girl can only dream of being a space queen!


Products Used (Eyes)

-Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette (Blackout, Evidence, Omen, and Deep End, Vanilla)
-Tarina Tarantino Odyssey Starchild Palette (the pigmented silver)
-Wet n Wild white eyeliner pencil
-Dolly Wink liquid liner
-L'oreal Mascara
-KKCenterhk ES A855 Lashes
This is off focus, but it shows the iridescence of the colors~ Pretty!

 How to Achieve this Look (hope it isn't too confusing...)
1. Using an angled brush, use a matte black to  line the upper lash line and make a defined wing.  I only went half ways into the upper lash line to emphasize the wing. (I started from the middle and made the wing outwards, so I didn't line the inner half of the upper lash line)
2.Apply a silver shadow on the lid up to the crease and in the inner corners (avoid messing up the black line we made in step #1)
3.Apply a dark navy shade on the crease.
4.Take a lighter, iridescent purple and apply it above the dark navy. Blend the colors slightly. 
5.Apply a highlight shade on the brow bone. I chose a sparkling white gold.
6.Apply the same dark navy on the lower lash line (avoiding the inner corner where the silver shade should be) Make sure to apply a generous amount and to smudge the color slightly.
7.Apply a bright teal on the outer 1/3 of the lash liner (below the dark navy)
8. Apply mascara, liner, and lashes. (I only applied a thin line of liquid liner to mask the false lashes)

FOTD
I must surely apologize for my unruly hair before hand. I was way too lazy to do anything with it. This is what my hair looks like when it dries naturally after washing it ;P I think it added a "psycho" effect to the look xD



Products Used (Face)
-Reviva Labs Face Primer
-Liole Triple the Solution BB Cream
-NARS Sin Blush (From the Danmari Palette)
-Lime Crime 'No She Didn't' Lipstick

More Wearable Approach... 
Don't wear the blue lipstick. It hardly suits me, so I prefer this look without the blue lippie.  But for the sake of it being an editorial look, I had to include some pictures with the blue lipstick. Plus, the blue lips practically scream "Space Queen!"




Or Another Alternative Perhaps?
I also tweaked the blue lips a little. Instead of having full on blue lips, I added a bit of the same silver eyeshadow I used on my eyes to the center of my lips, as well as the navy color on the outer parts of my lips.


 I see you...


 I had so much fun taking pictures for this look! I really enjoyed altering a random application of eyeshadows into an actual look!~ I would totally wear this to a sci-fi convention. Heck I already wore black lipstick while grocery shopping, why not take this look while running some errands? That would be a sight! 


What do you think of this look? Would you wear the eye makeup? Blue lipstick? Both?

    I actually think you pull off the blue lipstick very well, though you will probably get a few looks if you wear it out! ;P

  3. what camera do u use to take the zoom eyes!
    my camera always wash off the eyeshadow, but if i use no flash, it would turn blur and the eyeshadow would look blended together

    ur make up is fantastic!

  4. So fun, I love it! But I own the Mint Green Lime Crime lipstick and have worn it around my house, so I am biased for sure ;)

  8. @sahar awan: Haha, blue lips are rather odd. Very science fiction.

    @Stacey:Thank you! :) I am starting to like the sound of Space Queen Nancy... xD

    @laura: I know a little bit of French, so I think I understood that. The silver highlights the eyeliner? If so, I agree! :D

  12. Greetings, Space Queen! Your "editorial" looks are always great to see. If i had the color application/blending skills like you...I'd totally wear the eye make up out! Not too sure about the blue lippie though.. XD

  15. @Jessy: Aww thank you. You are so sweet! Yeah, I totally agree.

    @Tiffyama: Greetings! Thanks ^_^ The eye makeup is totally fine with me too for going out xD I am sure you can do it! Just practice a little~ My oldest EOTDs are from a year ago, and I have learned so much. I was terrible at doing makeup not long before that, so have some confidence in your skills :D It only takes time and practice~
