♕ Make Up Look ~ Padmé Amidala ♕

I just realized I slightly messed up the blog schedule, lol XD This post was supposed to go online before the previous one... Oh well, no big deal I guess!

I made this look to celebrate May 4th aka the Star Wars Day. It's inspired by my favourite character, Padmé Amidala, formerly Queen Amidala of Naboo.
I actually did the very same look (well, kind of) last year, on the same day - but it never made it to the blog sadly, although I really, really loved it. So I thought: let make it again AND post it on the blog, too. 

This look is inspired by my favourite outfit of Padme, the one she wears in the Lake scene on Naboo. It's so unique (as all of her dresses actually), but the thing I love the most is the colour combination: a smooth gradient that starts with a pale yellow and end with a deep purple... And I tried to recreate this gradient on my eyes!

I tried to stick to last year's look as much as I could, but I deliberately changed a few things: first of all I used a different shadow to create the eyeliner and I added some glitters on the lower waterline... Because, in case you haven't noticed, I'm slightly obsessed with glitters lately XD

After priming my lids I started off by applying a series of shadows starting from the inner corner and moving outwards. First of all, I applied Sensuelle eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics on the inner corner; then I applied an old (and discontinued) pale yellow pigment on the inner half of the lid. I applied three different eyeshadows by NABLA in this sequence: Lazy Days, Cattleya and Moonrise. Every time I added a shadow, I made sure I blended it evenly with the previous one. On the outer part of the lid I applied Hopscotch eyeshadow by Makeup Geek Cosmetics, the I worked on the outer crease shape and shade - I used Mimesis eyeshadow by NABLA to create a soft, well blended V shape. I used whatever was left on the brush on the crease, where I applied Narciso and Peach Velvet (the latter as transition shade).

I followed the same colour scheme on the lower lid too, then I applied the glitters: Delicate on the center and Chewee on the outer part. 
In last year's look, to create a metallic eyeliner, I used a mix of different shadows - but this year I had the right eyeshadow to use so I went straight on it! I used Chemical Bond eyeshadow by NABLA (wet, of course: I mixed it with some drops of Fix +). (In case you're wondering why a metallic liner instead of the classical, black one... I did that to represent the dress' metallic details!)
At this point I was pretty much done, all I needed to do was apply false lashes, mascara and define my brows.

But... We're not done yet! After the longest time ever, I did a lip art! I used Vertigo lipstick by NABLA as main lip shade, then I applied a thin coat of lash glue and lastly I pressed the glitters on it - and I used Delicate again to match the eye look!
