Dr. Who Inspired

This tutorial is inspired by Dr. Who. We’d been discussing all the Doctors (my favorite is David Tennant) and companions (I adore Rose and Sarah Jane) with friends at dinner, so I knew that I needed to do a look. If I do this look again, I’m adding gold along the lower lid, or maybe in the crease. As it is, I do love it. Geek Chic Cosmetics Bigger on the Inside is a blue with golden overlay. The gold is strong, meaning that depending how you look at it you see green, gold, or blue-teal. I also got to use the new Urban Decay Crave, from the Naked Basics palette. Crave is awesome. It’s a deep, buttery smooth brown matte.

Prep the eyes with eyeshadow primer before you begin.

How to achieve the look:

  1. Apply Geek Chic Touched by Darkness on the browbone, down towards the crease.
  2. Dab Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy on the lid, then brush Geek Chic Bigger on the Inside on the lid.
  3. Contour the eye with Urban Decay Crave in the crease and outer corner of the lid.
  4. Line the upper lash line, lower lash line, and waterline with Inglot Matte Black Gel liner. Add mascara.
  5. Add Touched By Darkness to the inner corner.

      gorgeous!  My favorite companion is Donna Noble, favorite doctor is probably 10th.  Although, I really liked the 9th doctor too…

        DeborahMargarella It’s hard not to love the 9th!

      What a gorgeous look! I got hooked on Dr. Who a couple of years ago , and I think Tennant is my favorite, too.

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        roxcat Yay :)

    • http://www.outinapout.blogspot.com/ OutInAPout

      Yay! Love the look, and as I just recently joined the ranks, I can actually comment on this thread. I’m definitely a Tennant girl (that smile, those Chucks!) though I have yet to dislike any of the Doctors. Companions are harder for me to choose a favorite. Rose, of course, is special. But I adore Donna Noble and the Ponds too. I think it speaks schloads of a show when it can constantly switch out its beloved main characters and still keep fans content. Love it!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        OutInAPout Yeah he’s amazing <3 I like the current dr too. The Ponds have driven me a bit nuts.

    • krystlekouture

      Stunning look! Love your liner especially, I’ll be looking into the Inglot gel!

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        krystlekouture The inglot gels are really nice.

    • misfitgirlie

      I so cannot answer your Dr. Who questions, but I love how this looks on you, especially the liner!

      The new Who series, Eccleston has been the best. Original, easily the fourth doctor, Tom Baker-doctor w/ the uber-scarf! (only reason for it is the woman asked to knit it wasn’t given a specific length so she added and added to it until it became the infamous 4th doctor trademark we know today!).

      • http://www.Phyrra.net/ Phyrra

        SpangleLime Oh how cool!

      Great look, I love all the dark and sparkly colours!

    • bowlerhat

      I just found your site and love it :) This is a look I wish I could wear but it would not look so good on me…I kept wondering what blush you were wearing – then I saw it was Sin, my favorite blush ever! 
      my favorite Dr is Tennant [for the reasons you listed and he's just so attractive], but I am really impressed with the new Dr…he’s very good at the whole “I’m 30 in real life but I seem a billion years old and wise” thing. My favorite companion is probably Martha [so hot, great wardrobe] or Sarah Jane [the only one without hots for the Dr, for once]. 
      You make me want to wear superbold colors again, thank you for that :)

      • bowlerhat

        I just noticed the “reasons listed” for Dr love were actually in a comment, not yours

    • Sabina

      I love this look…and your hair :O it’s just fabulous! Oh Tennant all the way, he’s got a great Scottish accent (not in the show)

      Gorgeous look!  I’ve sworn off buying any new makeup for awhile, but I might have to check out some of those Who shades… <3
      As for the Doctor, I think my favorite WOULD have to be David Tennant, although I also love Eccleston and Smith has grown on me.  I always thought that Rose was kind of an over-rated companion, though–Donna was my favorite by far.  She was hilarious with him, and the two together were just a joy to watch.  I think I’m going to like this new companion a lot too, though.  Guess we’ll see!
