FOTD: Korra inspired look

July 04, 2012

I have and always will be an Avatar Fan. No, it's not those tall blue guys on the cinemas, I'm talking about the cutesy Avatar, Aang and his successor, Korra. I have been drawing a lot of eyelooks lately that resemble the accessory that (for me) Korra is most noticeable, which is her arm bandana, or the cloth pattern on her arm.. it has the color scheme and pattern fit for someone who is from the Southern Water Tribe, and I was inspired by it...
The new Avatar- Korra of the Southern Water Tribe

The pattern I'm talking about is the blue and white triangles with blue spots.. :)

And here's my drawing, then my take on the makeup..

Unfortunately, because of the lack of "drama" from the lashes and no liner, it wasn't as cool as  expected it to be, so just today I decided to try it out again with a few tweaks... and this is what came out. :)

I do hope that you can see the pattern I did on the lower eyes... I ran out of primer that's why it had an uneven color.(boo!!! :[ ) Unfortunately, I have no shots of my eyes closed so I'm really sorry bout that..

And here is for the full face... I used the Long and Curl mascara I got from Saizen last sunday, will do a haul post soon enough.. ;) Ngayon ko lang nakita kung ano yung malaking pagkakaiba na naibibigay ng mascara! hihi (It's only now I discovered the big difference of using a mascara.. ) Talk about being naive. hahaha

  I also did Katara's Hair loopies, something to be reminiscent of the Southern Water Tribe. :) 

The blue lips is something that I have always wanted to do for a long time, but given my restrictions, what I did is use lipgloss then top with blue eyeshadow... Just wait till I get hold of the dollface cosmetics lip palette... :)

Anyways for this look I only used the Careline 8 eyeshadow and blusher duo, a generic lipgloss, Saizen's Long and Curl Mascara(review soon to follow), and Saizen's Ever Bilena 2 way cake in Ecru..

This one is photoshopped, just because I wanted to enhance the pigments more. :)

So what do you guys think is better? the first or the second one? :)

I do hope that you liked my post, and please do comment below if you think I can improve on something... thanks so much! I also hope that you get encouraged to see the legend of Korra... It's as awesome as it's predecessor, The Legend of Aang... And that I can assure you. :)

thanks for reading!

  1. I'm a fan of this series! I loved Aang and the gang. The Legend of Korra is nice too. I like how intense the episodes are. I kinda miss Aang and Sokka's silliness, though :)

    I wish I had the courage to do creative makeup looks too :)

  2. You really have a thing for creative makeup seriously! I like what you did on the lips. :)

    Unfortunately I don't watch Avatar but my bf does. So I might check it out cause you girls said it's fun to watch. :)

  3. Thank you so much for the complements Aya and Sam!.. :) oh yeah, Sam, if you want I can give you all the episodes of The Legend of Aang and The Legend of Korra.. :)
