Inspired By… Avatar: The Last Airbender – Princess Yue

30 Jul

So I’m trying out a new series on here – “Inspired By…”! I’ve been looking for ways to get out of my mini makeup rut, and so I thought looking for inspiration in my favorite things would be fun. As I just finished watching the entire A:TLA, and the new series is coming out next year (Yayyy!), I decided to start there!

Princess Yue

First up is a look inspired by Princess Yue of the Northern Tribe!

Since Yue is a princess who is proper and obedient on the outside, but has so much going on inside, I thought I would go for something that looks pretty minimal when my eyes are open, but looks more dramatic when they are closed.

This is the eye look that I started with. I thought it was interesting to leave the gap in blue on the top lashline, transferring the blue instead down to the middle of the lower lashline. Doing that added something extra to the look, and made my eyes appear wider. Since Yue is super wide-eyed, I wanted to try to recreate that. I think it worked out well! But I felt like it needed something more… More blue! After all, she is from the mighty Northern Water Tribe. πŸ™‚

In the cartoon, Yue has an obvious wing to her eyes, but I didn’t want to use any black liner for this. It felt like it would be too harsh. So I made the cat-eye effect with the shape of my shadow instead! I really like how this turned out! I think if I did it over, I would make the crease color extend to line up with where the blue on the lash line ends.
