Game of Thrones Series: House Lannister

18 comments:
 

I am Lannister, hear me roar! So, here's my fourth look in the series. The Lannister Lions. The Lannisters are a gorgeous, power hungry, ruthless clan and everything about them revolves around gold. Golden hair, golden armor, golden coins, golden crowns, these guys put Midas to shame. So, obviously I wanted this look to have lots of gold (gold shimmer, gold eyeshadow, gold glitter)  - and to channel my inner lioness I teased and tangled my hair for about a half an hour. I'll be regretting that decision very soon but for now, take a look.


I'm going to come right out and say it. I'm really disappointed with this one and I'm probably going to re-do it or re-design it. It was going so well at first and then for some reason, by the time I got to eyeliner things were smudging and running and I was losing pigmentation, the lip-color wasn't right, my hair wasn't behaving, even my camera was acting up to top it all off every picture I took was ... less than flattering. Essentially, everything went to hell in a handbasket (one of THOSE days) so this is the only half decent shot I could get of it. It reminds me of a look I did almost a year ago and I think I like that one better anyways but you can decide for yourself.


Anyways, more importantly, something that DID go well recently ... I redid my blog! I was inspired by Kassie's redesign of her amazing blog Unique Desire (check it out, it's so cute and she's super talented) and I wanted to make mine look a little bit more professional and also make it easier to navigate. Tell me what you think; your comments and critiques mean a lot to me.

Also, one final thing, a big WELCOME to all the new readers I've acquired in the past few days! Wow! From 28 to 43 in like four days. My birthday is coming up in a few days so this is the best birthday present ever. Maybe I'll do a birthday giveaway to show my appreciation for all your support. What kinds of things do you like to get in giveaways?

HAPPY FRIDAY Y'ALL!

  12. Thank you thank you thank you everyone. You've made me feel a lot better about a look I initially hated.

    And @Meme it's a mix of Revlon's True Red (in Matte) and gold shimmer powder with gloss to blend them together.
