Skyrim Makeup Series- 'Aura Whisper'

Switching gears just a bit for my Skyrim look today.
Rather than using a place or race as my inspiration,
I decided to use a 'shout',
specifically, the Aura Whisper.

Shouts in this game are special powers that do various things.
These shouts are formed by a series of words that can only be learnt
by the Dragonborn (& a few select others)
after absorbing dragon souls.

As you can see, the Aura Whisper is actually a whisper rather than a shout,
but it has a magical effect all the same-
it reveals any living things' life force (or aura) that's near you,
which is a definite upper hand!

Here's my inspiration from the Aura Whisper:

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
UD's 24/7 eyeliner in 'Bourbon', blended out- crease
SYN Cosmetics' 'Entice'- crease highlight
SYN Cosmetics' 'Faded' & 'Roman'- lid
Covergirl Bombshell mascara
Covergirl Line Exact eyeliner

I wanted this look to remind me of a whisper,
something soft, faint, and fleeting.
So I used that rather than the color of the shout as inspiration.

In the end, 'Faded' & 'Roman' didn't go to together quite as well as I'd hoped,
but I really loved 'Entice' over the crease.

What do you all think?
