The Return of the Look: Ravenclaw (Harry Potter)

"Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind.
" - Sorting Hat

Two years ago, just before the last Harry Potter movie was released, I created four looks to correspond to the four Hogwarts Houses. The first look I created was for Ravenclaw because it is my favorite House (also I was sorted into Ravenclaw on Pottermore, woohoo!). I've been wanting to recreate these looks because in the past two years my makeup skills have improved significantly. You can see my first Ravenclaw look HERE. I'm also celebrating the fact that Victorian Disco is about to release a huge Harry Potter collection! I hope you like this new look!

Keep reading more for a pictorial!

1. Start this look off by priming your lids.
I used Lime Crime's Eyeshadow Helper.

2. Use a blue eyeliner to outline a cut-crease shape. I used the Urban Decay eyeliner in 'Chaos'.

3. With a small brush, go over the blue eyeliner with a blue eyeshadow. I used Sugarpill's 'Velocity' eyeshadow.

4. With a flat brush, pack on a light blue eyeshadow on the lid. I used Lime Crime's Parasol eyeshadow from the ChinDoll Palette. 

5. Using the same blue eyeliner and blue eyeshadow, make some diagonal lines over the light blue eyeshadow.

6. With a fluffy brush start blending out the crease. I used Victorian Disco Cosmetics 'Rowena' eyeshadow. (although I go back in the end to add more 'Velocity')

7. Apply a whit eyeshadow on the brow bone. I used Sugarpill's 'Tako' eyeshadow

8. Apply a black eyeliner on the waterline.
I used Prestige Total Intensity black eyeliner.

9. Apply a bronze eyeshadow on the lower lash line.  I used Victorian Disco Cosmetics 'Gunpowder'.

10. With a fluffy brush go back to make the blue in the crease more intense. Apply more of the bright blue you used before and blend it in.

11. Take an iridescent blue and apply some on the crease and the inner corner. I used Victorian Disco Cosmetics 'Evenstar' (it looks more green in the photo although it is more blue in person).

12. Use liquid liner, mascara, and apply some lashes.
