Avatar Inspired Eye Look

Good Morning Lovelies!

The Saturday after Christmas, me and Rob went to see Avatar.
If you havn't seen it, run...now...and go see it!

Honestly, this was the best movie I have ever seen!
I spent those almost 3 hours with my mouth hanging open!
It was breathtakingly beautiful! 
I coulda gone back in and watched it all over the second it let out!

On the way home all these beautiful images were still rattling around in my brain and I had an eye look pop into my head.  It was a rather creative look, and sadly since we were going to be out running around to a few stores, I didn't do it exactly like in my head.  Since we live in a sorta small town, surrounded by farm land, I tend to get some interesting reactions when I look anything beyond slightly different, and I just didn't feel like dealing with the looks, so I toned it down.  I may redo it this week and replicate my original idea. I still liked this so I thought I'd share it with you anyway.

First I will show you my inspiration:

 

The second image is straight from the movie, and those were the colors I worked off of.
Not sure why the movie posters have them so much darker blue and less aqua, but both are stunning.

Here are the colors I chose to use:



I applied Primer to my lids and then added a layer of NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk, to whiten up my lid and make the shadow colors pop more!

Bid Tickle went on my lid, up to the crease.
Then I applied Cool It to my crease, as well as lower lashline, and outer 2/3 of my upper lash line.  I winged this out as well, for a bit of a nod to the stripes the Na'Vi people had.

Then I applied black eyeliner to my upper and lower waterlines.
And added Mascara.

Then since they had those awesome glowy freckles, I mixed some iridescent glitter with eye lash glue and dotted it between my eyebrow and hairline.

Before I show you these pictures, I will say this...for some reason the shadow looks splotchy on my lid on some places.  It did not look like this is person.  Very very odd.
Ok, on to the pics!


 
 
 
 


That's it for today my wonderful readers!

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Oh Christy I think it's beautiful! Maybe for a more OTT version you could do the glitter dots under the eye too!

Wow you look so cute! Blue really suits you! I love those "freckles" as well...if only I could get my real freckles to be all glittery instead of...uh...orange?

Beautiful look, I LOVED Avatar! I thought that 3 hours was a bit long as some parts ran a little slow, but it was an amazing movie!

Phyrra said...

I love the look and your inspiration! I thought it was a fantastic movie :>

Amberski said...

Great look! Wish I could pull it off.... You could always come down to Va Beach if you want to do the over the top looks- no one here would bat an eye!

Steffie said...

Just found out your blog few days ago and i like the look~
Maybe more mascara on bottom lashes will do or lighten the eye brow will do for more dramatic look.. :)

Lucy said...

You look gorgeous sweetie! I wish I could go see it in the movies. It's impossible because I take water pills and have to pee too much. I wouldn't want to miss a thing. I'm sure it's amazing. I'll have to wait for the DVD, damn. Those lashes are awesome also. You really do look beautiful with those shades on your lids. Very creative. Massive (((hugs))) to you!

Amberski said...

Well, next time you vacay here, let me know- we will have to get together for coffee and nail polish! : )

PowerLifterChick said...

Amberski,

Ayuu,
Thanks hun!

This is such a random comment, but I think the Avatar poster is what they look like in the dark, because it also has those glowing dots very prominent, and that's when the glowing came out, at night. Haha, random, but that's my theory. Great great movie. I like your makeup to go with it.
