XERXES, KING OF PERSIA



All hail Xerxes!

Xerxes, the King of Persia was dripping in gold & opulence. The luxury & fierceness of his look in the movie '300' had me drawn to this character transformation. 

To my jewellery drawers, I went, on the hunt for every gold necklace, bracelet & ring I own to create a unique costume. I even used toe rings as a nose ring and ear cuff.  The accessories include tons of pieces from River Island and Primark in the UK. 

The inspiration for my makeup look was an extreme bronzed palette; bold gold eyeshadow, dark smouldering eyeliner & a shimmery nude lip. I felt like a Persian villain goddess. 

The toughest part was hiding my eyebrows with tons of concealer and recreating King Xerxes' non-existent brows.

The products I used for this makeup look are:


Happy Halloween!
