A Song of Ice and Fire Series: House Tyrell

Greetings from the Dark Side~

"Growing Strong."

In anticipation for Season 3 of Game of Thrones, I decided that it was appropriate to do a House Tyrell inspired look. House Tyrell will be important in the upcoming season, so it makes sense!

Castle and seat of rule: Highgarden. 
Motto: "Growing Strong"
House Sigil: "a golden rose on a green field".

As is evident from their motto, their castle name (Highgarden), and their sigil, their image is that of flora. Plants, much like some of the Tyrells, are beautiful and dainty, but they are actually very grounded and strong. This especially reminds me of Margaery Tyrell, who is beautiful and kind, but is also very ambitious and clever. Because of this, I wanted to make a look with the sigil colors (green and gold) that was both girly, yet fierce. 

                                                                        Products Used

(optional) Use a green cream eyeshadow or softly textured eyeshadow to map out the area that you will be applying the rest of the green eyeshadows. This will help as both a colored base and a guide.

1. With a flat brush apply an iridescent light green on the center of the eye. You want something that is shimmery and fun. I used 'Lucky Charm' from the Lime Crime Alchemy palette with my MAC 239 brush.

2. With a small brush, use a black gel liner to outline the shape you want. I went for a leaf-looking shape by using my ELF concealer brush to apply the MAC 'Blacktrack' Fluidline.

3. Apply a yellow-gold on the inner 1/3 of the eye and gently blend it into the green. Pick a gold that is bright and not too bronze. I used my MAC 239 to apply 'Goldfish' from the Lime Crime ChinaDoll palette.

4. Take a darker matte green and apply it on the outer part of your lid. I used my MAC239 to apply 'Jade-o-Lade' from the LC ChinaDoll palette. This color is nice because it is more blue-based and contrasts nicely to the yellow based green and gold that we already used.

5. With the same gel liner, line the rest of your lash line and take the remainder and use it on your lower lash line.

6. Use a gold or white eyeliner on your waterline.

7. Apply mascara and lashes.

Hope you liked it! 
Remember to be fierce with your makeup!
