I have to admit straight from the beginning that this isn't something that I had planned to do tonight! I've known for a while that we were going to see the new Star Wars movie tonight, but I decided only a few hours beforehand that I wanted to dress up for it! I didn't do any practice on this makeup, and everything I wore was from my existing wardrobe. I do have an interest in building upon this for an original Sith character eventually! Sorry these aren't great photos, I just thought it would be fun to share with you. Did you dress up to see the movie or do a Star Wars cosplay lately? Share your pics with me on Facebook!
I didn't want to go too over the top with my makeup for tonight because I'm wearing makeup for a few parties and events this weekend and was worried about breaking out. When I improve on this look, it will definitely be more elaborate! I highly recommend looking up other Sith makeup to get some ideas as to what kind of look you really like.
I would normally have started off bare faced, but I went to hubby's holiday work luncheon earlier today, so all I did was take off my eye shadow and blush, then touch up my concealer and powder.
Next I applied some red/copper eye shadow. I took it up further than I would for regular looks because Sith need drama!
I darkened my eyebrows to go with the wig I planned to wear. If you aren't wearing one, you can do your regular brow treatment or you could look up a tutorial to "disappear" them and be more elaborate. It was also at this point that I realized I should actually put on what I was planning to wear so that I wouldn't mess it up later! I layered three shirts. The turtleneck was because it's December in Pennsylvania. Don't worry about the lace on the shoulders of the top shirt-- it'll get covered up; I know that lace is very much not Sith-y! ;)
Added red wings.
Went to town with eyeliner! Don't worry if you screw something up-- incorporate it into your design! Mine is far from perfect, but it worked for tonight and I don't think it's too bad for no practice on this look! I also did some contouring for sharper cheekbones.
Sorry that the final picture of the whole outfit isn't great. Hubby doesn't usually work my phone and I forgot to try again after the movie. I hope that you had fun watching this anyway and that it might help you with a direction to take your own Sith look in. May the Force be with you, and don't forget to share your pics with me in the comments or on Facebook!
