This is my entry for A Bouquet of Beauty‘s sci-fi themed makeup look. Since Farscape has been my favorite Sci-Fi themed show ever (with Lexx a close second), I decided to do a look from Farscape. I also wanted to make it challenging, so I chose Commandant Mele-On Grayza.

I really wish it had turned out better. Smudging around my lips proved very difficult for me and I couldn’t figure out the right way to do it. I probably should have used a cotton swab but i was using a smudge brush.
What do you think?

Damn woman! Great hob! I'm a nerd…I have all of Farscape on DVD…she is one hot lady and you pull it off so well!
I meant great JOB…this is so hawt I can't even type! Ha!
Hi Blix,Thank you!I was feeling like it didn't turn out as good as it could have.I did have ALL of it on DVD, but then someone asked to borrow it, and I let them, and they never returned it, which really upset me.I always thought Grayza was fun
Looks good! I love Farscape too although I'm partial to Chiana myself.
"but then someone asked to borrow it, and I let them, and they never returned it, which really upset me."
I HATE it when people do that! Then they have the nerve to ask to borrow something else!
I had someone ask to "borrow"(have) a cd player. I gave them mine, then a month or so later they said "do you have a cd player I can borrow?" My head just about exploded. I wanted to smash his face into the floor right then and there. Instead, however, due to my lack of a spine, I bit my lip and mumbled "yeah, just give me a minute to get it"
Just give ME a minute, what a lack of spine. How about you give me my damn cd player back you selfish bastard?!
Anyways, I'm not much of a sci-fi buff(I prefer swords, dragons, wizards etc.) but you're makeup looks almost exactly like the chick you were trying to look like.
Also, the second picture looks really intimidating, like you're an alien about to blast my face off with some kind of nuclear laser cannon grenade launcher thingy. Really good work!
Good job! You really captured her icy, otherworldly look very well.
Whenever I do any kind of colour-blending on my lips, I always smear on lots and lots of creamy lip balm. And after adding whatever colour I want over the lip balm, I apply a bit of lip gloss and kind of rub my lips together a bit, jut for a little extra blending. I still think you did a pretty good job with the lippies, though!
You nailed it! You look awesome. I really like Farscape. I was never one for scifi till I met Michael, now I've seen all of Farscape, Battle Star Galatica, Stargate, Stargate Atlantis, Star Trek: The Next Generations, Enterprise, Voyager, DS9, 4400, Roswell and my favorite Firefly.
Beautiful Job, you did amazing!OH and Bewbies! Ahahahaha!Nothing makes for a better post than mega clevage!
Hi Kat,I think Grayza was rumored to be part Nebari I loved Chiana, she was a lot of fun1
Hi Daniel,Yeah, Ray loaned seasons 1 and 2 to someone. We got those back. That same person borrowed 3 and 4, then told us that they were stolen, but never replaced them, and then he left the state!
Heh, Farscape was very cool sci-fi fantasy to me, though I tend to lean more heavily towards fantasy than sci-fi.
Glad you like!
Hi Bloated Ewe,I always start with Aromaleigh lip balm on my lips. I put that on after I cleanse my face and get my moisturizer on, because it does seem to help. I should have put on a little extra though, because like you said, it would have helped for the color blending. This was my first time trying any color blending
Do you think a clear gloss would have helped? I was torn on trying out a clear gloss because I know her look seems very matte.
Hi Jessica,Thank you!From what you listed, I really liked Farscape, Atlantis, TNG, Roswell, Firefly, Startgate Atlantis, and BSG. BSG was so sad though.
Hi Evil Angel,Thank you!Lol, most of the pics of Grayza she always wore a black shirt with it open like that, so I figured I should at least try to get a flattering shot like that. I did put my foundation down my neck and on boobs :>
Yay for sci-fi shows! I've only watched the first two episodes of Farscape since I'm more of a Stargate girl myself but now… I seriously want to watch it lol. You look soooooooo great! And meh I agree blending shadow around the lips is HARD. I would try using a wet angled brush then using your finger to tab it down a bit.
Hi Pixie,Hehe, if you watch it I hope you like it.I think I'm going to break out my dvds and watch the first 2 seasons and then if I'm really feeling it, get the 2 seasons I'm missing. I really loved the show a ton.
Girl geekage is totally hot. I enjoyed Farscape, too, but I will forever be a BSG fangirl.
Amazing job on the makeup!
Yes!! Looks awesome! I especially love contouring around the cheeks.
This is insane Phyrra. In a good way of course! Totally excellent.
Yeah, her look IS really matte…but a little dab of gloss on your lips may have made things easier, and if it ended up looking too shiny, a bit of foundation powder or light eyeshadow over the gloss again may have helped. I use aromaleigh's lip balm, too! It has the perfect creamy consistency; a bit of zig-zagging back and forth with that baby would have made a nice buttery layer of balm to smudge around in!
I have natural kind of puckered-shaped lips, and I'm always trying to find out new ways of keeping colour on my lips and not on my drinking cups, my teeth, around my mouth, etc. Lol. But I'm nowhere near your eye makeup blending skillz. Hopefully I'll get there eventually–easpecially with all the lovely samples that indie makeup companies have!
cooooooooooooool! I think you did a good job.
I think it turned out great. Nice work!
great work keep it on girl
Hi Amanda,Aww, yay
Hi Ella,Thank you!I always feel like I suck at contouring, and I was trying to blend it a lot.
Hi Heather,Thank you!
Hi Bloated Ewe,Yes AL's lipbalm is awesome! And believe me, just a year and a half ago I wore a dark shade on my lid and a light shade on my browbone. That was it. No blending.
Hi Deez,Thank you
Hi Michelle,Yay thanks!
Hi Shaimaa,Thank you
Sorry, I'm slow this weekend, I've got a bit of a sinus thing going. Anyway, Farscape rocks!! I think you did a great job! Thanks so much for doing a look for my contest, I love it!:)
Wow!!! I think you look fantastic…
I LOVED Farscape!!! Fantastic job with the makeup, looks perfect!
Hi Laura,No problem!Yay glad you like
Hi Krista,Thank you!
Hi Cin,Yay thanks
Well done with this look! Looks fantastic! Good luck with the contest. I hope you win!
That is seriously cool! I'd give anything to see you do a Seven of Nine, complete with the implant over the brow!!
D'oh – meant Seven of Nine from ST Voyager, my favorite of the ST series.
Hi Taryn,I'd need to get a blonde wig for the 7 of 9.As it was, seeing Grayza's cute short haircut made me want to cut my hair off!I'll look into what it looks like :>
fierce! you did really well and you look great. lol.. you didn't shade your bewbies like she did in that open shirt photo though. they made her looked metallic. i've never shaded my lips before but maybe if you use draw in with eyeliner and then smudge using a flat top eyeliner brush with some more pigment? i'm not sure about the lip safety of dark colors though.
Hi Suzieduck,Thank you!Yes, I did try with a smudge eyeliner brush around my lips with an eye shadow, I think I just need more practice.
