Final Fantasy inspired FOTD (Sephiroth - FFVII)

"Tell me what you cherish most. Give me the pleasure of taking it away."

I've had a crappy, crappy day. Sick, tired, so much to do, too much going on & not nearly enough time for it all. I've been working on a project for a makeup company (shhh, it's a secret :P) and when I finished working on some of that, I still felt like I wanted to do something. The thing with doing makeup, is that it helps me relax; I find it an outlet for relieving stress. I am so focused on executing what I have pictured in my head that nothing else matters.

So I sat myself down & thought of this hot piece of a villain, Sephiroth. While I'm doing this series, I am not looking at photos while I do it...just picturing what I think resembles what I want. While the Kingdom Hearts looks were inspired a case, this is the first of my series to be inspired by an actual character. What I thought of was a simple colour scheme with what I'm calling a "sleek" look to it. Not sure exactly what I even mean by that, but when I think of Sephiroth, I think of this silver haired, quick on his feet, better watch the F out kinda guy. I winged it out because of his wing...does this make sense? Hahah, probably not; it's 4 am & I am in desperate need of sleep :P

Anyways. Enough with the babble, here's what I came up with for this silver fox, Sephiroth. There is so much I would have changed, done differently. I could NOT fix the crease on one eye while I had difficulties with the wing on the other. Ohhh well ;D! I still liked it for the most part.


What I used;
NYX Skin Tone eyeshadow base
Ben Nye Silver Lumiere Creme Colour on inner lid
Inglot #447 on inner lid
NYX Black Bean jumbo eye pencil
MAC Typographic eyeshadow
MUFE #28 or is it 08? (black) eyeshadow
Sugarpill Tako eyeshadow
Sugarpill Tiara loose eyeshadow (used wet)
MAC MSF Natural in Light (to highlight)
Urban Decay Gunmetal 24/7 liner on lower lash line
Inglot #447 & MAC Typographic on lower lash line
MAC Brun eyeshadow on brows

Lots & lots of foundation (3 layers, AAAGHHH!!!!)
Rice powder

MAC Naked Liner lipliner
MAC C-Thru lipglass

Yay, happy I finally have that one done & posted. I'm not too sure what I'll do next, but Final Fantasy Dissidia 2 comes out soon & I'm sure that will inspire me :D Suggestions would be great as well :)

Passing out now ;D!

I love the shape of the eyeshadow, I've never tried to do a wing with my shadow before, but I love how it turned out on you.

I definitely feel you about using make-up as an outlet, I feel the same way!

LOVE it. I've yet to play FFVII (though I have it downloaded for my PS3 so I'll get there eventually) but have played a handful of other FF games. Actually, I'm wearing a Vivi Orunitia tshirt right now haha.

I really love the shape of the shadow. Nothing I'd ever dare to wear out, but it suits this look/theme perfectly. :D

i wanted to extend the shape further for lots of drama, but the way i set my brows made me think it would have looked pretty stupid :P overall, i'm pretty happy with this. it's not perfect, nor exactly how i imagined, but i'm okay with that <3!

thank you everyone for your comments :D!
