Alright, this is entirely a self-indulgent post, so please feel free to ignore it [it’ll be tagged makeup related, so you can block the tag if you don’t want to see posts like this in the future!]
A while ago I created a mock eyeshadow palette for Inquisition characters [see the first picture!], and the idea stuck with me so much so that I had to see if I could replicate it in real life.
Now, admittedly I’m kind of a makeup junkie with a large stash of eyeshadows, and so I tried my best to replicate it. I think I did well! Dorian, Blackwall, Iron Bull, Cullen and Josephine are dead on, I think. Cole’s is pretty too, but I wish the golden shift in the white was more pronounced. I wanted a more rose-gold shade for Cassandra, but this was the closest I could get. Leliana’s black I’m not entirely happy with - I think a blackened purple would’ve been better. And the Solas green is a little too dark, maybe? Sera’s red and Vivienne’s purple didn’t photograph well - they’re actually much richer and prettier in real life. Varric’s blue should’ve been more navy, like ink blue.
Now if I could only find a way to create a DA-decorated palette… :/
