With the latest Star Wars film coming out this month, the gorgeous Melissa from KissandMakeupBeautyBlog and I were instantly inspired to try something different in December! Instead of focusing on Christmas makeup, we decided to (re)create Star Wars makeup! I went for a less known character from the Star Wars saga: Barriss Offee.
A short introduction to Barriss Offee before we move on to my look: a Mirialan Jedi during the Clone Wars (you can see her in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars) who eventually came to distrust and blame the Jedi Order for their role in the war. She definitely is an interesting character with some strong views. Have no idea what I am talking about? Go watch the Star Wars films and also get to know (the now no longer canon) extended universe! Anywho, it is not why I chose her. I chose Barriss Offee for this challenge, because I really liked her appearance and thought it would be quite an interesting challenge to try and recreate it. Here goes nothing!
Tadaa. I even found my old winter jacket which has a big hood, so I clumsily put that on in the bathroom so I could take the pictures. Barriss Offee keeps her makeup simple and only wears black eyeliner on her upper eyelids and in her lower waterline. Her lips are purple (slightly blue-ish) to black. She has black markings on her nose that go on to her cheeks. That is where the challenge lies. I am not great at drawing -not even geometric designs- but I think I did ok for a first try. I ended up liking this look so much that I might consider wearing it for Halloween next year. I will have to get a friend to teach me how to put on a head scarf like that, though. For my eyes I used "Perversion" by Urban Decay and on my lips I combined a creamy blue eye pencil (for the cool undertone) from BornPrettyStore with my gorgeous brown-purple lipstick named "Rouge Noir" by Chanel. To draw the Marialan markings I used a much softer black eye pencil. Barriss Offee also has a greenish-yellow skin tone, but I did not know how to get that greenish color, so I let that be. I figured my yellow-brownish complexion would suffice haha.
On to Melissa! She got inspired by R2-D2, one of her favorite characters from Star Wars and a well-loved little droid in general, and so she created a beauty look with white, silver, blue and red. That sounds quite exciting! Quickly take a look and tell me what you think of our looks! Tun dun dun. Who or what is your favorite Star Wars character? Have you seen episode 7 already? And of course, tell us your thoughts about our Star Wars makeup looks!
