Okay so as some of you know, I follow Major League Gaming and while they represent a few different competitive video games, I'm the most familiar with Halo. I've been wanting to do some looks based off of some of the characters but I just didn't have quite the right eyeshadows to be satisfied with a look. Well, after my appointment with Laura Mercier as well as looking through the four sample eyeshadows that were sent to me for review by Geek Chic Cosmetics, I think I finally have at least one look.
Introducing Master Chief Petty Officer John-117. Master Chief is the main hero of the Halo franchise and probably the most iconic of the series. This is a picture of him in his MJOLNIR Mark VI armor which as you can see is mostly an olive/khaki brown with a golden yellow reflective visor in the helmet. There's also the black in between the joints of the armor.

On my face:

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Porcelain
On my eyes:

  • Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Cotton
  • Geek Chic Cosmetics eyeshadow in Viking King
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Amethyst
  • Laura Mercier Full Blown Mascara in Black
On my lips:
  • MAC Lip Liner in Brick
  • Laura Mercier Lipstick in Espresso
  • Bath and Body Works Liplicious Lipgloss in Princess in Training

After applying the tinted moisturizer all over my face and blending, I primed my lids with Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Cotton. You don't need much of it so I just barely tap the doe foot applicator on each lid and then I use a concealer brush to blend it. Then, I took the Caviar Stick Eye Color, also from Laura Mercier, in Amethyst and applied it to the main part of my lid and in the crease. Using an angled eyeshadow brush, I took just a little bit of Viking King from Geek Chic Cosmetics and placed it on the outer corner of the eye and inside the crease. Then I put on one coat of Full Blown Mascara. Yet again, a Laura Mercier product and this is in Black.
My lips are simple three step lips:
  • Use the side of the lip liner pencil (This one is MAC in Brick) to line and fill your lips.
  • Apply Espresso lipstick from Laura Mercier and blot.
  • Apply lipgloss to the center of your lower lip and rub your lips together.
I decided to go a little redder and glossier with my lipstick since the eyes were predominantly brown and gold. The Amethyst creme eye color does have hints of copper and reddish glitter to it which I also think is brought out by the lips. I've always been one to go dramatic eyes or lips but never both.
