Eye of newt, and toe of frog, 
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, 
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, 
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, 
For a charm of powerful trouble, 
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. 
William Shakespeare

It's October which means it's soon going to be Halloween time 

I really like to play with make-up and reinvent myself with new looks so I posted three looks you could do for your Halloween party. I also did the Snow White look, but at this point I'm not really comfortable with posting my whole face unmasked. Also, Snow White is basically a pin-up with very dark eyebrows, alabaster skin and red headband with a bow. You could also take a red apple as a prop .

Dark fae

I used essence Denim wanted gel liner, Catrice Carame Spiced Red eyeshadow and essence liquid eyeliner with glitter. For contouring around my nose, I used black eyeshadow.

Poison Ivy

I used essence green and blue eyeshadows and MAC pigment (primary yellow). It is a very simple and very cool look. I used an angle liner brush to create lines.

These lines are a bit messy, but at this point I didn't have the right brusher to pull this one off as I wanted it to be.

Thane Krios

This blog is called Make-up and geekery. Until now, you haven't seen the geek part. Well, this is it! Make-up and geekery combined !

I love love LOVE Mass Effect franchise. ME2 is one of my favorite video games ever ( others are SW:KotOR and Baldur's Gate 2 ).

Thane Krios is a drell assassin. Drell are reptile-like humanoids whose skin, according to Mordin Solus, is an irritant and can have hallucinogenic properties in case of oral contact.

I tried to recreate Thane's face scales and his red "gills".

Drell have really strange black eyeballs with corneas which are one shade lighter then the rest of the eye. I tried to recreate that by painting my eyelid black and putting one spot of white eyeshadow and black dot in the middle. You can really see it if you zoom out.

I hope you like it

My first e.l.f. order arrived yesterday and I love it! I ordered Smokey Eye mineral eyeshadow set, mineral blush in color Bliss, and Matte Finisher clear nail polish.

I ordered eyeshadow set mainly to take advantage of 20% off minerals facebook promotion and I'm very glad I did, because pigment colors are amazing. I particularly like Socialite (the middle one).

I will do swatches of the pigments soon, they are just amazing.

I usually like to use darker eyeshadow colors but I chose to use this natural look for the blog opener because I really like how it turned out. I used fingers for blending because I'm waiting for my e.l.f. brushes to arrive.

I used Deborah Hi-Tech Trio Eye Shadow (Hot Temptation), essence Denim Wanted gel eyeliner (Vintage style), Max Factor False lash effect and essence eyebrow stylist set.
