Gipsy Danger: Mako Mori inspired makeup

I have the hugest crush on Rinko Kikuchi because, duh, she's gorgeous (especially loved her look in Brothers Bloom) and just plain adorable (no doubt you've seen this chocolate gif already.) She also kicks major ass in Pacific Rim and looks amazing, to boot. Her uber clean look as Mako Mori really stuck with me, and I've been searching for a good blue shadow to create this makeup look since I saw the movie months ago.
For the eyes, I used Jayhawk from the Smash Cosmetics sample I ordered a while back, and though I like how the blue came out in these photos, it didn't stay that vibrant for long. (Read my review here) I also filled in my brows because Mako has strong, defined brows with a slight arch, which calls emphasis to her eyes. I used a couple coats of Urban Decay's Supercurl mascara. For the lips, I brushed on a teeny bit of Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Pillow Talk to create that "I'm working hard, but still wanna look polished" look.

  5. I'm so jealous of your eye makeup skills. I suck so hard at eye makeup, and it never stays put even when I use a primer. Also, love the Brothers Bloom. I have to watch that movie whenever it comes on. I am slightly obsessed with the style in that movie.

  10. That blue is awesome. Sephora makes a liquid liner that is that shade, super vibrant, and LASTS. I ran out and didn't buy another one, but it was my favorite.

  11. I love this makeup! Such a vibrant blue! It's too bad it didn't last very long. It reminds me of Chaos from the Urban Decay Vice Palette.

  12. I am really into this cobalt shade right now and want to paint my nails this color. I'm not sure if I actually own it in nail polish form, though! That's crazy. It looks awesome on you. If you wanted to not waste the shadow you got, you could always try some kind of sealing product. I love love Illamasqua Sealing Gel (got mine from Sephora) I more use it for my eyebrows because I have been on a strong eyebrow kick, but it's actually meant to turn loose shadows into liner. Then maybe it wouldn't get all fade-y on you.

  13. Love the make up, especially eyes <3 I wish I could pull off something like that, but I always feel that I'm too pale for bright eye make up :P

  14. I really love the vibrancy of the blue but I have to go look at your review of it now because a vibrance that doesn't last is no good. But I love this look. Great inspiration and follow through.
