Game of Thrones, House Lannister inspired Makeup

This is the first in a series (well actually if I'm being perfectly honest, it's the second.  The first was filmed around 2 months ago, but I haven't edited it or up loaded it yet) in a new series that I decided to do.  I've been thinking about it for a while, but I've been so busy working on film and other projects that I haven't actually got very far yet.   But here we go!

This is a look inspired by House Lannister from the Song of Fire and Ice Game of Thrones series.  If you haven't read the book or watched the TV series, I highly recommend it.  It's a bit grim in places, but well worth it.  Fantastic storey line.  The books are beautifully written and it is so easy to pick it up and start reading and not realise that a few hours have gone past.  The TV series is brilliant.  I can't even imagen the budget they must have for that show.

The set's, the costumes, the wigs - everything about it is so beautifully put together and done that it's so easy to get lost in the world they have so stunningly created.

The Lannister colours are Red and Gold, and they are associated with all things opulent, rich and powerful.  While the family motto is "Hear me Roar"  it is more comment to hear "A Lannister always pays his depts".  And indeed they do.  Whatever you maybe rewarded for helping a Lannister, you can expect double if you betray them.
Powerful and rich and filled to the brim with cunning, if you get on the wrong side of a Lannister, no expense will be speared in making sure they pay you back for it.

I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read the book or see the show, so I wo't say anything more about it, but please enjoy the look.

In keeping with the rich and opulant nature of the Lannister's I used all golds and bronzes on the eye, keeping the lip red.  I did use a lot of different colours for this look, but you don't have to use every single product I used.  Skiping out one or two of the bronze colours won't have a huge impact on the look.

Ok.  Let's be honest.

I'm not amazingly good at keeping up with my blog.  2 post's in a year.  That's ok right?

Mostly because I'm not sure how to work it and make it user friendly.  But I'ma try and sort that stuff out.  But it's confusing business this Blogging and I'm still trying to work it out.

I shall endeavor to do better!  And if anybody out there on the big wide web has some tips they would like to share with me, I shell gladly receive it :)

I'd also love it if you could follow me on my Facebook page under my buiness name under "Alchemy Makeup Artistry"  I keep up to date with that, and post photos and updates all the time.
Go there and check it out!  Here's a link :)
