[Inspired Look] How To: Yuna (Final Fantasy X) Makeup ^_^


Assalaamualaikum, Konnichiwa!

It's been a while since my previous "Inspired Look" post! In today's post I'll be talking about how I did a makeup inspired by Yuna from Final Fantasy X! She is the "Daughter of High Summoner Braska. Honest and determined, Yuna embarks on a pilgrimage to obtain the Final Aeon and defeat Sin. Yuna is learning the mystical art of summoning aeons—powerful spirits of yore." (FFX Booklet Description).


Well, why Yuna Now? Why? Why? Hehehe. Maybe because... I'm playing it now on my PSVita...? Hahaha not really! It just suddenly popped in my head to do this inspired makeup, after I restocked my karakon (contact lenses) collection with a new pair of blue and green ones! Yes, I love blue and green karakon because they somehow match me. I don't know... maybe they match my skin tone? Or maybe because they are the color of Sailor Moon, Miku, and Rapunzel's eyes? LOL~ I don't know. But when I saw my newest pairs of blue and green karakon, I suddenly remembered Yuna, who has heterochromia: her left eye is blue, while the right one is green.

I then checked the details of pics of Yuna, and I found out her makeup was kinda simple too, so then I happily made it! Okay now, I'll show you what we need to recreate her makeup look!



LET'S START!

1. Skin care! Moisturize... moisturize... moisturize! Okay? XD We don't want dehydrated skin to be our makeup canvas!

2.  Yuna has a kinda looks-like-it's-tanned, light yellowish skin, or can I say... yellowish skin with olive undertone--like mine? so if you have a yellowish/warm-coloured base, or foundation, use them! ^_^
I used: Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Spot-Control Base UV (Ivory) (click the product name to read my review about it!)  and ---> Shiseido Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover (Light/BO10) Compact Powder.

3. She has these brownish shades (?) in the outer side of her cheeks, from her upper cheekbones to her chin that create the natural suntan look, like in the pic below. So instead of blush, I applied bronzer. I used Shiseido Face Colour Enhancing Trio RS1, like this:
I just mixed the color together to create these shades. You can use your own brand of bronzer, or if you have brownish non-shimmering/glittery eyeshadows, I think you can use it too. I applied this bronzer from the bones near my ear: thicker color from the ears, then go thinner to the cheeks. So I brushed and blended the product from outside (near the ears) to inside (cheeks). This will create the color gradation intended. I also applied a bit on the left and right side of my forehead (along the hair line).
Well this was just how I did it, I'm sorry if you think this didn't look like the correct way to apply bronzer, I just did what I saw from Yuna and I hope my eyes didn't fool me XD

4.  Eyebrows and Eyes! Yuna's eyebrows are dark brown, just like her hair. They are quite full, and shaped nicely (nice wide line at the front brow and thinner line at the end, and the arch is not exaggerated). While mine are not really nicely-shaped, but I still tried to imitate her eyebrow shape :p

So, since I haven't been so good yet with eyebrow art (?), I'm just gonna describe it with the picture below:

Try your best to copy the shape of her eyebrows, and don't end up drawing an inverted Nike logo. If you have less brow hair, it's easier to copy this since you just need to fill in with pencil/brow powder. But since I have lots of brow hair and I'm in this #NoPluckTeam, and haven't been skilled in this art, so I didn't show you a good example yet *sigh*. 
As for the eyes, you can see I only applied mascara moderately to my lower and upper lashes, since Yuna's lashes are not extremely long, and I also drew a thin line of black liner above my upper lashes to imitate how Yuna's eyes look. It also gave the illusion of thicker lashes. I didn't use any eyeshadow because I didn't see Yuna use any.
My dark brown eyebrow pencil is Viva, and my mascara is Shiseido Perfect Mascara Defining Volume. My karakon: The green one is MORE Twins, the blue one is MORE Ivy Crown.

5. Nose contouring, because I need it. LOL. This one you can skip if you already have slim and pointy nose like Yuna's. My nose is flat and hmmm... fat? LOL so I had to make it look slim by drawing "eleven lines". Hahahhaa.

6. Lips! Yuna's lip color is... nude, with a hint of peach and brown. I have a lipstick which color is close to this color! It's L'oreal Color Riche Moist Matte in C501 Crayon Sunset! But before it, I applied Palmer's Dark Chocolate and Cherry Lip Butter first, because the lipstick is a bit drying for my lips, and also because Yuna's lips don't look too matte--they have a slight shine.
My lips are pigmented pink so the lipstick color looked a bit reddish on mine, but I think with some lip concealer, this lipstick is perfect to imitate Yuna's lip color. 

Yuna's lip shape is quite similar (?) with mine, the upper lip is thin and the lower one is full. So, this was how I applied the lipstick!

And... Yayyyy! The makeup's done!

RESULT~~~
 So... this is it!!!



I just styled my scarf like that, and added a braided wool as the replacement of her earring. I wish I had a blue rosario (?) that would look like her earring LOL XD 

What do you think? Do you like it? It's easy right??? Probably you want to go having fun on the coming new year's eve in this look? (perhaps minus the heterochromia style? XD)  Hehehhehe.

Let me know what you think!!! I hope you like this kind of post! ^__^

Thanks for reading!
