Saludos a todos, es mi primera vez en la comunidad GlowUp Art y llegue aquí gracias a la invitación de mi amiga @yetsimar para participar en la Iniciativa de maquillaje inspirada en Vikingos , me gustaría invitar a participar @chacald.dcymt @freidimar18 @chicalternative
I really like the Viking culture and in fact one of the countries that I hope to visit one day is Iceland, where a large part of the cultural heritage of its first Viking settlers is still preserved, including paganism, the Icelandic language and of course Something very curious is that in that country they can only name their children with traditional names, which is why it is common to see names like Odin, Björn, Loki, among others. That's why when I saw this initiative I felt quite motivated. To start the makeup, what I did was wash my face very well and apply a makeup base with a sponge to even out the tone of my skin.
With a brush I applied red body paint making a straight line over my eyebrows and completely covering my eyelids up to the tear duct, while at the ends I made an inclined line to form a triangle up to the hundreds, I also applied the paint but in a blurred way red on the cheekbones. I decided to use the red color because the Vikings were warriors who constantly sought to expand their domains for which blood was present in both religious rites and in their battles. Then, with a fine brush and a compact black eyeliner, I covered my eyelids and extended two semi-curved lines on each side of the eyes towards the cheekbones.
With the same black eyeliner brush I drew a letter or rune called Mannaz from the ancient alphabet, it is the one used for the word Human or humanity, as I was reading it also means personal growth. Also with the red paint I made a vertical line on my chin followed by two black lines, I painted my lower lip with black liquid lipstick and the upper lip with a burgundy pencil followed by a cream lipstick of the same color with a little finish. metallic, take the same lip brush and shade the lower lip black a bit. With a brush apply pearly white powder shadow bordering the lower part of the eye makeup, while on the upper part of the eyebrows on the forehead in the direction of the hundreds apply black powder shadow. On the rest of the face apply translucent compact powder.
