|"Peridot. She says her name is Peridot."|
The final week!
This project has been so much fun for me, planning a look around a theme each week. It's like an event! I've been planning this look since we started this, as soon as I got Peridot for my second gem, so I was really excited for this!
Peridot has her visor over most of her upper face, so I wanted to replicate that! This look is a lot less minimal than my other look for her, I wanted to keep the visor with clean lines but have everything else a bit glowy and "space-y" haha.

For the face I applied my base to get a good all-over even tone, and after the eyes were done I highlighted to hell and back, then used some of Fourth Be With You in my philtrum. I've seen it done on instagram before and I thought it seemed like when I needed to pull this look together and unify the green. I also took it liberally on a blush brush and patted it and blended it outside the eyes and on the temples and cheekbones to further add to that eerie green glow, and added a small bit to the tip of my nose to further enhance the effect.
For lips I used Inglot's super awesome holographic AMC Lipgloss in 546, and patted some of Skittles in the center of the upper and lower lips to give it some extra depth.
I went with gold for the visor because it's a very limey yellow green in the show, and I extended that to yellow, and to gold thru that. The gold also made sense to me because it's assumed Peridot and Jasper serve yellow diamond as well, so gold made sense. I also felt keeping it to just lime green was too monochrome, and I didn't have much else in the way of shades of green that weren't too blue based.
Overall this look was a lot of fun and I regret not having much to say about Peridot, because I want to know more about her! I hope soon we get to see her again. I also really would love to do a project like this again, I think it's very useful for testing one's skills, and it's kinda cool to plan out looks and figure out how to interpret not just a character's colors but also personality and motifs via makeup that isn't just straight-up cosplay. (I love seeing cosplay though, I really do.)
And if our posts have inspired you to take up this Steven Universe makeup challenge or to try a look of your own, I hope you do! I'd love to see more people enjoying SU through their own mediums and outlets.
Thanks for sticking with us through all of our #GemGlam April!
Believe in Steven and lots of love,
