FOTD: Slytherin Silver and Green

DSCN4614Look number three in my Harry Potter House series: Slytherin. Also, my first attempt at a cut crease. I think it turned out pretty decent. I’m totally not a Slytherin, but I think this look gets the vibe right.

SlytherinDark witchy lips.

DSCN4649Eyes:

  • Hello Waffle Envy
  • Shiro Huntress
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Cuff
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Mars
  • Kat von D Tattoo Liner
  • Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
  • Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
  • Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Face:

  • MAC Face and Body in N1
  • Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in 1
  • Benefit Boi-ing Concealer in 1
  • MAC Skinfinish Natural in Light
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Adored

Lips:

First I primed my eyes, then I traced a line along my crease with a green metallic liner. I blended the liner into my crease with a brush. Then I used my pinky to dab Pixie Epoxy below the liner and let it set for a second. I patted Huntress, a silver, over the Pixie Epoxy. Then I used a pencil brush to apply Envy, a dark green, along the liner, flaring it up at the outer corners. I also applied some along the lower lashes. Then I lined my upper lashes with black liquid liner and finished with a strong wing. I applied some along the outer half of my lower lashes as well, connecting at the corners. I then lined my lower waterline with silver eyeliner, going around my inner corner to the very inner part of my upper lashline. I lined below my bottom lashes with the green eyeliner and blended it in with a brush. I curled my lashes and applied mascara. Then I applied foundation and concealer. I applied a pink blush with silver shimmer, and then put my setting powder all over the top of everything. I finished with A Girl and A Cat, a dark purple tinted balm.

This feels witchy and slightly goth but flamboyant at the same time, which seems appropriate for Slytherin. It makes me want to experiment with cut creases, because I’m not sure I did it right, but I like how it looks anyways. Tomorrow, last but not least (ok let’s be honest, they’re kind of the least…) Hufflepuff!

  1. Loving the pop of silver!

    Harry Potter? Unbeatable theme. (Think I saw flashbacks of my childhood just now.) I’m a Slytherin all the way and Snape is easily one of my favorite characters in the series.

    1. Glad you liked it, it was a ton of fun to do. To be honest, the Slytherin look was a bit out there for me, and not just because it’s the house I least identify with. I don’t usually wear so much dark make up!
