A Collaboration Celebrating 20 Years of Sailor Moon: Mars

A few weeks ago, Mai asked on twitter if anyone was up for doing a blogger collaboration with Sailor Moon characters and colors. Of course I was still up at 3:30 in the morning and wanted to join. What girl didn't grow up watching Sailor Moon when they were younger? (Nostalgia factor max!) Mars and Saturn were always my favorites, and I'm lucky I got to do a look for one of them. I loved Rei's hair, how she had the power of fire as an archer, and the colors of her uniform. So a bunch of us from the beauty blogosphere have decided to showcase two weeks of heroine/villain makeup looks for our love of the series, and in celebration of 20 years of Sailor Moon. My scout is Sailor Mars, and I hope I did her some justice. I'm honestly not really pleased with the way I took the photos but got some editing help from Frank and tried to make the best of them. Please check out the other awesome looks by the rest of ladies! I have their looks linked below after the cut~ And keep watch for our upcoming villain looks!

I tried doing something asymmetrical to represent her archer's bow, some kind of fireball, and her uniform colors. It was kind of nice since I really let go of my ever-present self-consciousness of trying to make my uneven eyes look even. I had fun with the look, and think it's rather simple. I've also decided that I quite like the look of lower lashes.
