Native American Inspired Look for Makeup Geek Weekly Challenge

MakeupGeek has had her Weekly Challenge going on for ages, but I’ve never participated. I used to look at the submissions and thought “Wow, are these people all makeup artists?? I could never do that.”

That was the time when my eye makeup was all but eyeliner and mascara. And I didn’t have bforbunbun.com to constantly push myself to explore new makeup products and looks.

I don’t know what sparked my interest this time. I don’t even know anything much about the culture and history of Native Americans. But I send in something this time, and had tremendous fun creating it!

So I went to google for pictures for inspiration. Found many, but they didn’t quite attract me.

Until I saw this:

I love the contrast of Obama’s formal black suit against the tribal war chief’s colorful head dress.

And so I did this!

The colors used were inspired by the chief’s headdress – yellow, orange, red, black, and white.

I brought the eyeshadow colors beyond the eyebrows because…….. because I felt artsy. Lol.

I don’t know, I think Native Americans are very passionate people – passionate about their heritage, culture… so I chose this set of colors to sort of represent fire. Also, I’d imagine fire to be a very important source of energy for the Native Americans. (Pardon me for the lack of knowledge on their history.)

This hair accessory is the closest I have to Native American accessories. I tried!! XD

When I typed ‘Native American’ in Google Images, the Native Americans all had straight or fierce expressions. So I tried one with an attitude.


Not fierce enough, huh?

Maybe if I had bows and arrows and a full headdress of colorful feathers, I’d feel more in character.

I’m sure they do smile in real life. Like this:
