Valkyrie - LOTD Inspired by Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere

I did this look for this week's Never Too Much Sparkle challenge, which is video game-themed. My recent favorite game is definitely Odin Sphere. It's an older game (it was for PS2) but I downloaded it a couple months ago on PlayStation Network and played through it. It's such a great game! It's a side scroller, but it's so pretty and has a great story. You play through five short stories as five different characters. One of my favorites is Gwendolyn, daughter of Demon Lord Odin. I pretty much just based this look off the blues and purples from the feathers on her armor.

Better look at Gwendolyn:

-L'Oreal True Match foundation in Classic Ivory (neutral)
-some ol' Clinique powder stuff.

-Too Faced Shadow Insurance
-Sugarpill "Magpie" on inner corners
-Persephone Minerals "Mercury Aqua Rhapsody" on inner lid
-Fyrinnae "New Moons Light" center of lid
-Morgana Cryptoria "Zombie Ambrosia" also on the center of the lid, blended into New Moon's Light
-Sugarpill "Weekender" on outer lid
-Glamour Doll Eyes "Tattooed" starting to blend out onto the temples
-Sugarpill "Poison Plum" on lower lashline and blended out around the temples
-Sugarpill "Lumi" patted onto the center of the lids
-Matte black from Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette on outer crease for dimension
-MAC Feline black eyeliner on lower lash line
-Maybelline One by One black mascara
-Eyelashes are from NYX, but I forget which ones they are

-Morgana Cryptoria "Starburst" lip balm in the corners for some depth (dark gray-ish blue)
-Morgana Cryptoria "Otherworldly"
Sugarpill "Weekender" dabbed onto center of the lips for some purplish blue shimmer

Whew! This look was a doozy but I really love how it turned out! I don't get the chance to do these elaborate looks very much, unfortunately. They're fun. Now I'm kind of tempted to do the other four Odin Sphere characters...

Have a lovely evening! :)
