Snow White and the Huntsman: The Evil Queen makeup

Hello everybody! 

The look of today is inspired by the look that the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron) wears in the upcoming movie "Snow White and the Huntsman". I'm not really superexcited about this movie but the Queen's makeup is fabulous! 
On her eyelids she wears this greyish green iridescent color that is very suitable for any spring makeup look, and still evil enough to suit us who are not really into the whole cute, pastel makeup thing, but still want to try out a fresh, lighter look.

Note that this look is not meant to be an exact copy of the Charlize's look in the movie, just inspired by. ;) If you want a precise copy of the look I suggest that you check out the Pixiwoo sister's tutorial for this look! You can find it on their Youtube channel.

The light pistachio green in the inner corner and the smokey grays in the outer part of the eye makes an unusual but attractive combination. It is a great variation of the regular smokey eye, and it can be toned done to suit for work or spiced up for a dramatic evening look. For me, however, this is about as toned down as it can get. ;)

Since we have so much shimmer going on on the lids I added a matte white as a highlight in the inner corner. I think that this combination of textures creates a nice, dramatic effect. I haven't really added any highlight beneath the brows for this look, just a soft wash of the creamy color Vanilla bean by MakeupGeek. It is too dark for me to be used as a highlight but using it to blend the upper edge of the smokey eyeshadows creates a soft shimmer on the brow bone, that will reflect light. 

On both my cheeks and lips I've used my favorite blush Cleopatra by MakeUpStore. Mixed with lip balm it can be used as a soft, sheer lipstick.
