Beauty and the geek | A make-up look inspired by fantasy water creatures

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

In February Sylirael from The Painted Rogue and I worked together for the first time on a by games and fantasy inspired make-up look, and today we’re showing you the second look in our Beauty and the geek series. This month Syl and I picked a fantasy water creature theme. Let’s find out a bit more about the creatures that Sylirael and I used as inspiration!

My fantasy water creature look

Beauty and the geek (A make-up look inspired by fantasy water creatures) (1)

For this look I got my inspiration under water from the naga. Naga are sea creatures that are half human half sea serpent. Think scales, a tail and fins, but also a lot of human characteristics. A bit like Ariel the mermaid, but with a temper, an extra pair of arms and awesome magical powers. Naga colors are the colors that you typically see under water: lots of blue, green and purple. Using this underwater color palette as a starting point I got to work, and this is the result:

What do you think? I’m pretty happy with my naga look. I absolutely love green, blue and purple on the eyes, and I really enjoyed wearing this look. Yes, even with the blue eyebrows!

Sylirael’s fantasy water creature look

Syl also based her look on a humanoid sea creature. She got her inspiration from Prime Speaker Zegana, a Merfolk Wizard from the fantasy card game Magic: The Gathering. Zegana has a tough personality and her look is pretty fierce as well, and Sylirael translated that in a kick ass make-up look. Getting a little excited yet? Good!

    Stunning! Loved the eye makeup so muchh xo

  21. I never thought I would say this to someone – but I love your blue eyebrows! Fabulous interpretation of the prompt, you look amazing!

  22. Prachtig gedaan! Je kan jezelf erg mooi opmaken :D

  23. De kleuren op je ogenpassen heel mooi bij elkaar en staan je goed! Ik had nog nooit gehoord van zo’n naga, wel grappig dat het eigenlijk de slechte versie is van Ariel :)

  24. Heel mooie look! Je lippen zijn zo leuk gedaan :)

  25. Prachtig, die kleuren!

  26. Olala een hele geslaagde look! echt wel prachtig gedaan en zeker ook draagbaar

  27. these are my favorites shades for eye make up too, they look amazing, I absolutely love this look!

  28. See you can wear dark lips!

    • For a ‘special’ look like this I definitely don’t mind venturing into the scary world of dark lippies. But I wouldn’t leave the house with it, I’m afraid… :-) At least not yet.

  29. Awesome look! :-D I wish I had your bravery and selection of brightly coloured eyeshadows! Sorry for the delay, my post is up now!

  30. This is so great and different! The colours together really work and the lips, well what more can be said. Oh and just like Ariel, but totally different =] (it looks a lot like the sea monsters in HP and the goblet of fire) and you just happen to have a cool role-play necklace lying around.

  31. Ohh, that is HOT. I love, lOVE that lip color on you! It goes so well with your hair!

  32. Gorgeous!! Your eyes are just glowing!
