House Tyrell / Christmas Contest Look

52 comments:
 
So I've been in a huge makeup rut lately. To be honest I think it's a product of my month off and being really really intimidated lately by the incredibly talented bloggers I follow. Especially recently with all the incredible holiday looks people have been pulling out. Really, there are some days I feel SO inadequate I can barely even pick up a brush.

Anyways, to fight this slump I decided to go back to basics ... so I'm rebooting the very first series I ever did - The Game of Thrones Series. This is my niche and my comfort zone so I turned to it for some much needed confidence and inspiration. There are so many new characters I've come across while reading the series so I just had to add more looks. The first house I'm adding to the collection is House Tyrell - the golden roses.




This look is inspired by the house sigil: The Golden Rose. I wanted to play with the greens and golds on the eye and incorporate the red rose color on my lips. I think it turned out beautifully - what do you guys think?

I even went out and made my own golden rose headband to add some extra drama to the look. It's so beautiful, I wish it was acceptable to wear things like this all the time. To make your own version, just pick up silk flowers from the dollarstore, a can of gold spraypaint, some hot glue and a gold headband to attach the flowers to. Voila.




After I finished this look and uploaded it I thought to myself, you know what - this look is actually pretty Christmas inspired. The green of the tree, the red of the poinsettas and the gold glitter so famous this season.
 

Anyways, I've entered it in MakeupBee's Holiday Look Contest and the grand prize is $500.00!!!! I don't expect to win but ... all I want for Christmas is your support if you like this look. You can connect via Facebook or sign up and check out all the thousands of incredible makeup looks on the site which I HIGHLY recommend - even if you don't want to vote.

And don't think I wouldn't share the love of that $500.00! I've been dying to do another giveaway for months now but don't have the cash to front it. This would be the perfect chance to give back for everything you've all done to support and inspire me. 'Tis the season after all. Love you guys <3

  6. I really hope you enjoy the series. Right now I'm reluctantly starting the fifth book. I don't want to start it because I know I'm going to tear through it and not have the sixth one to look forward to for so long!!

  42. <3 GOT! I was re-watching a few days ago because I've been totally itching to watch ever since I saw the Making Of for the second season.

    I don't think you should be intimidated by other bloggers (though, admittedly I am intimidated by you!) I think you're an incredibly talented and relatable lady. <3

  43. Thanks girlie but you kicked me out of that spot real quick haha (no worries, I won't hold it against you, you're awesome). And I'm not trying to be mean here but honestly, the look in first isn't a favorite of mine. Yours, however, absolutely is.
