GAMORA, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
This pretty young lady is my friend’s daughter and one of my son’s closest female friends. They’ve pretty much grown up together and he is now kind of like her big brother ‘protector’ at the High School. When my son was looking up Star Lord costumes for himself, he said “You know who would make a great Gamora?” At that moment, the wheels started turning as I have been talking to the awesome people at Fandango to recreate something for Halloween. And here you have it, Gamora. If you’d like to recreate this look, I list the products I used here but I break it down on Fandango.
I used KRYOLAN’s green (from the Rainbow Color Wheel) with a makeup sponge applicator, Ben Nye’s Misty Violet as the base eye shadow, Artiba Liquid Eyeliner, and Katy Perry’s pre-glued Pretty lashes by Eylure. This was a bit trial and error for me as face painting is not really something I do often. Well, the last time I did it was actually a year ago. It seems like it’s the only time of year I get to do some sort of painting (my poor canvas and brush set has been waiting for me on my desk) and I really need to change that (it’s on the bucket list).
Gamora has designs on her face so to create the lines, I used L’Oreal’s Silkissime in silver instead of white. For the lips, I used L’Oreals’ Silkissime Green Ivy eye liner as the lips and Shea Moisture eyeshadow in Taylor for the eyes. I felt it needed a bit more drama.
For the hair I used 16″ color strips by Pop in purple.
