Hogwarts Makeup: Ravenclaw

Here is the next installment of my Hogwarts-inspired makeup posts. I am a Ravenclaw. It's what I got sorted into when I had joined Pottermore, which I don't really use all that often anymore. I was happy to be sorted into Ravenclaw. I think as a librarian, it suits me well as they value knowledge and learning.




The house colors of Ravenclaw are blue and silver in the movies and blue in bronze in the books, so I decided to incorporate all three. I am in love with this bronze lipstick from NYX Cosmetics. It's unique, but not too crazy, so it can be pulled off with different looks and for different occasions.




I did a larger wing for my liner and shadow since Ravenclaw is bird-themed. Its animal is the eagle, even though raven is in the name of the house. It's a pretty simple and basic look. Definitely less dramatic than Slytherin.





Oh, how I wish Hogwarts were real...or that I lived closer to Florida so that I could easily drive there for a weekend trip to the Wizarding World. I think if I lived close enough, I would get a season pass if they had one and spend many days wandering around and going on all the rides, not just the Harry Potter ones. I am so curious as to how they are changing the Jurassic Park ride. I will assume they are going to update it with Jurassic World stuff. Hopefully it will be ready by the next time I go!


  1. Love the make up! And it looks better on you ! :D

  2. DUDE. Coolest idea ever. Love the wing and the colors!

  3. I guess beauty comes with a lot of things like the pretty smile you wear, your dress code, your way of talking, but the first impression is the last impression. And the first impression is your face. The face confidence makes you strut with your amazing self. Makeup is a tool to enhance your beauty and make you look beautiful, beyond your natural beauty. A number of techniques and types of products are involved in makeup artistry. ink eyeliner
