Game of Throne Series: House Tully


Rollcall! Is anyone else watching HBO's Game of Thrones?? My boyfriend Barrie and I have been obsessed with it ever since it's aired and have gone on to buy the books as well. Needless to say, I'm a little bit addicted. So addicted that I decided I wanted to do a series of makeup looks inspired by the six major houses (so far) featured in the show. House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, House Baratheon, House Arryn, and House Tully. For my first look, I wanted to do House Tully. The crest is a brown/blue riverbed with a silver fish and so I wanted to represent the river's alternating colors with a double cut crease.

The brown represents the land of the riverbank and the blue represents the water of the rivers
I was really skeptical about doing this look at first, but in the end I was really pleased with it! It makes my eyes look so much bluer than they actually are and the double cut crease doesn't look nearly as cray-cray as I thought it would.

I wanted the look to have a ruddy, earthy feel so for the rest of the face I used a browny-pink lipgloss from Sephora and lined my lips with a light sandy brown pencil from NYC. I lined the eyes with a brown liquid liner and used Sephora's Sculpting disk for the definition of the cheeks and temples. I finished the whole look off with a Heidi style milkmaid braid which was super easy to do. Split the hair into two low pigtails, braid and when finished, pull the tails up to the crown of your head so the ends meet and bobby pin to secure. Voila, Swiss Miss chic in two minutes flat.

I'm looking forward to sharing the other five looks with you guys in the coming days. Let me know what you think and if anyone would like more information or a tutorial or whatever just let me know. I'd be more than happy to oblige any requests.

  1. The eye makeup looks amazing!! Love the cut crease, wish I could do it as well as ya :)

  2. Thank you. This was actually my first attempt at a double crease. I was inspired by Claudia's look in the post here: so I still have a lot of room for improvement.

    I started with the top line and I used a lip liner brush to get the precise edging then a small detailer brush to do the edge blending. I found that helped. Getting them even is the hardest part really, especially if you're like me and have uneven eyes, so just keep some remover on hand and draw lightly until it's just right.

  3. This turned out great! Love it!

  4. Thanks for the tips, I'll definitely be practicing it now and I know what you mean, my eyes are completely different!

  5. this ones gorgerous
    i love the dramatic crease cut

  6. You are SO ridiculously talented! If I didn't know what this was inspired by, I would say that it reminded me of a fish :)

  7. That's really pretty!
    Love how the color work together, and the double cut crease!
