He to She: Khal Drogo (Game of Thrones)

So yesterday I announced that I'd be starting a new series today called 'He to She' where I turn male characters into my vision of their female version by imagining myself as the character and deciding how I would do my hair, makeup and costume if I was in their shoes. I have an entire introduction video to the series I hope you'll watch before this one so you understand the concept fully. But then, here's my first installment!

I decided to go a bit softer with the look but still keep it quite raw and rough around the edges. Since this character is essentially a war lord and lives in a tent... I don't think she'd have much time for makeup. So no skin perfecting and perfect blending here, thank you!

I always love to do deliberately messy looks. Breaking every rule you know, like 'blend blend blend' and 'use a primer' and 'don't use bronzer if you haven't created a flawless base' is always fun. And that's exactly what makeup should be about.

Make sure you don't miss out the hair! Get some extensions to make it super long to show that you've never been defeated in battle and you should be feared! ;)
