Videogame Vixens 1st Look: Tomb Raider's Lara Croft

'ello everyone!!! So a few days ago I was playing Tomb Raider: Underworld at my boyfriend's house (I'm a huge Tomb Raider fan XD) and all of a sudden I got this great idea.  Why not recreate looks from favorite videogame heroines and vixens?  And who to better start off with that the infamous Lara Croft.

Tomb Raider has been around since the late 90's and within every new game she looks better and better.  She has been a videogame icon since I can remember and I absolutely love each of the storylines and the game overall.  The games themselves are fun of puzzles and really require you to think outside the box in order to navigate around.  I so can't  wait for the next game to be released!!!!

Products used in this tutorial:
Clinique concealer in 05 Medium Beige
bare Minerals foundation powder in Summer Bisque
Smashbox Brow Tech & Cream Eye Liner Palette
Ulta eyeshadow kit (swampy/muddy green, metallic brown, and black)
Victoria's Secret Eyeshadow in Coffee
Ulta gel eyeliner in Black
Ulta eyeliner pencil in Black
Smashbox Lash DNA mascara

Ulta Bronzer
Ulta lipgloss in Dull Copper

With a clean, moisturized face and neatly plucked/waxed/threaded (whatever you prefer) eyebrows, use a yellow toned concealer to cover up dark spots and shadows.  Use foundation to set your face ready for eyebrow filling powder/pencil, eyeshadow, and bronzer.  Lara has a very flawless complexion even when she gets scrapped or muddy (yeah yeah I know she's a videogame character of course).  She has very defined brows so be sure to fill them in because they will be framing your face when you're finished.

Now with a muddy/swampy green color, fill in the inner corner to half of your eyes.  This will act as a base for the darker colors.  Go over the green color with a metallic brown color.  Then take a dark brown color and apply to your eyes from the other half of your eyes to the outer corners.  Blend the two colors togethers to make the colors flow.  Now with that same brown color, line the lower lashline with it.  This will give her a bit of a tired look from her.  Since Lara travels around the world for artifacts, she doesn't get a lot of sleep so by creating this effect it will make her look a little exhausted from her travels yet still active enough to shimmy across ledges.

Line your upper lashline with a black gel eyeliner and your lower lashline with a black eyeliner pencil (about 3/4 for the lower lashline though).  Take some black eyeshadow and go over the line you created for the upper lashline then blend with a Q-tip.  I like how she has a bit of a smokey eye to her look even when she is clinging onto a cliff for survival.  Curl your lashes and a apply a lengthening mascara.  Instead of blush, we're going to be using bronzer.  Lara has a bit of a tan going on since she is out in the sun a lot so you hardly see any blush on her cheeks.  Take a bit of bronzer and gradually build the color up on your cheeks.  For the lips I used a matte brown/copper color to finish the look off.

So here is the finishing look:

I even did her wardrobe to go along with the makeup.  Haha it was a lot of fun recreating her look.

Wardrobe from this Tutorial:
Tanktop from Body Central (size sm)
