101: Tron Makeup, Ghetto Sparkles Edition

Last week, we had the opportunity to talk to Tron:Legacy’s makeup artist Rosalina da Silva about how to achieve the effects from the movie. This week, I went to Sephora makeup and tried to recreate the look myself. It didn’t go quite as planned.

Here were the original instructions:

Underbase: M·A·C Strobe Liquid
Foundation: A full coverage foundation, applied full strength with a foundation brush
Concealer: A mixture of very light colours
Cheeks: A shimmery highlight powder (also brushed along side nose into the inner eyebrow area)
Eyes: M·A·C Paint in Bare Canvas as a base, M·A·C Paint Pot in Quite Natural in the eye crease,
and M·A·C Paint Pot in Bare Study to create highlights.
Eye Liner: M·A·C Eye Kohl in Smolder, blended and smudged to create the eyeliner and shadow.
M·A·C Eye Pencil in Ebony, M·A·C Fluidline in Blacktrack
Mascara: Black, volume enhancing, waterproof mascara
Eye Brows: Brow gel to shape the hairs, darkened with M·A·C Fluidline in Blacktrack
Lips: M·A·C Lipstick in Fresh Brew

Here’s what I ended up with after getting kicked out of Sephora after making a fool of myself:

Conclusion: I have covered everything I own in gray sparkles and look like Brandon Lee. Though I’m pretty sure if I just add a black crease across my eyes, I can also pass for a shitty version of The Black Swan‘s makeup.
