A Song of Ice and Fire Series: House Greyjoy

"We Do Not Sow."

House Greyjoy is the great house of Westeros that rules over the Iron Islands. I personally have found this family to be really interesting and quite different from most of the other houses. Their motto, "We do not sow", and their refrain "what's dead may never die" (as part of the worship for the Drowned God) are one of my favorites amongst all the houses because they are strong words that the house actually follows. Their sigil is a golden kraken on a black field. I used both black and gold as the main colors and I tried to take some of the characteristics of the kraken to create a shape for this look.

1. As per usual, prime your eye lids :D

2. With a black eyeshadow, outline the shape you want. I went for a squid tentacle looking eyeliner thing xD

3. Clean up the shape and use a liquid liner or gel liner to define the shape.

4. (sorry for the blurry picture!) Fill in the shape with a gold eyeliner or eyeshadow. I used Milani's Liquif'Eye eyeliner in Gold. I then later when over it with Lime Crime 'Goldfish' eyeshadow from the ChinaDoll Palette. 

5. Use a small brush to apply black eyeshadow in a defined shape from the crease down to meet the shape you already made. I used 'Lotus Noir' eyeshadow from the Lime Crime ChinaDoll Palette. 

6. Apply a black eyeliner to the waterline and smudge it slightly. I used Prestige's Total Intensity black eyeliner.

7. Use a golden eyeshadow on the lower lash line. I used Lime Crime 'Goldfish' eyeshadow.

8. With a liquid liner, make small dots on the outer portion of the lower lash line. These were made to represent the suction cups on the tentacles, although I went a little crazy with the dots!

9. Apply mascara and false lashes.

10. Go back and touch up any areas that may need it :)

And you are done!~

Hope you enjoyed the look!
