Tron Legacy Inspired:Gem

By  |  57 Comments

The second I saw this character show up in this movie, I knew I HAD to do a look for it! Although the look itself it rather simple, I find it really breathtaking. I wish I had contacts like hers to make my eyes look that light!

      I second that. This was a near exact eye that I used to wear to the ‘goth’ club when I was around 18-20, I went all out with a dark red lip though haha.

    To be honest, I think it looks even more breathtaking on you!

    Those are such gorgeous photos of you, Leesha! I especially loved the first one. Now that is what I call breathtaking. Your skin looks flawless, the makeup is perfect, and I also love the way your hair looks pulled back like that.

    Love it! I was inspired by that movie to cut my hair off very similar to Quorra’s :)

  14. Cris

    January 25, 2011 at 2:41 am

    and all the pictures are incredible. especially the last one:) breathtaking. you look so much like her.
    best Gem tutorial so far. i love that you stayed true to the look without adding novelty discs or lines.. or whatever.

    Ooh I love this look <3
    I fell in love ever since I saw that picture of Gem! It's a shame I have dark eyes, this looks gorgeous with light eyes!

    Hi Leesha! I only recently started to follow you on YouTube, but from the first video I watched, you totally clicked for me. Then I started to follow your blog (bookmarked on my iPhone!) and now I am even following your Twitter–and I don’t even like Twitter!

    Yeah so anyway, I wanted say that I liked you opening up with pictures for this look because it was one inspired from a character. I don’t think it would be that neccessary, though for one of your looks that you’ve created. In this video it was good for those of us who havnen’t seen Tron or wouldn’t know what Gems make-up looked like. But otherwise you post pictures on your blog. Which is better so we can oogle at them for as long as we prefer :)

    Okay, you’re awesome, keep it up!!

    I was wondering if you could do a Bollywood inspired look, or a traditional Indian wedding look. I know this sounds demanding but you are talented and I am attending this Indian wedding, so I wanted to get an impression of it from you. If you can’t do a tutorial/look its fine, but Thanks for all of the other amazing looks.(:

    Love!!!!! And in the photoshopped picture, your skin looks better than hers!!

    i love this look, its so futuristic and sci-fi ish! when u were doin the eyes i was waiting for u to do the inner corner highlight for some reason becuz during the video i kept seeing a light blue highlight behind ur right eye bt i dont c it in the pictures so i guess it jus the video or its jus me lol

    Ha, that’s pretty sick. Your right, it is so simple, but so nice. I like the comparison shot. :)

  24. Rachla

    January 25, 2011 at 8:01 am

    Awesomeness, very well done :) do you think at some point you will do the Quorra look as well?

  25. Stephanie

    January 25, 2011 at 8:06 am

    Your skin looks even better than Gem’s! Love the look, I remember thinking I wanted to try it out when I watched the movie. I also liked Quorra’s look, it’s kind of like Gem’s but less intense.

  26. Michelle

    January 25, 2011 at 11:59 am

    You got it down to the very last point. The looks so similar, it’s scary!!

  27. Tamsin

    January 25, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    when you look at the last picture, it proves that you’re better at makeup than the makeup artist of Tron, your skin looks so much better than Gem’s! lol x

    January 25, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    Really really love this look! Wish I could wear it myself one day, but I know that my make-up skills won’t compair to it!

    January 25, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    Just wondering, when you went under your eyes with the powder to diffuse the black, what did you use? :)

    • Leesha

      January 25, 2011 at 6:17 pm

      Thanks, eeyrvone! I’m glad you liked the post. I hope I didn’t go overboard with milkin’ the puns. It was a good time writing this article. @Neil: I couldn’t agree more. Nothing more tiring than reading the same old rubbish just with a different template wrap. @Mike: Thanks, I’m blushing. @Andrew: No need to exit! @ViralKing: Good luck! You’re off to a great start, I see. @Si Philp: I don’t disagree, but my talents lie with the written word. Gotta write what I know. You’re absolutely right, though.

    preblogging – Subversion alwoled me to keep the 40 blogs that Bloggy Network had up to date easily, and quickly. Upgrading them one at a time took forever. With SVN, I could do it in less than ten minutes. .Patrik – There are always downsides as well, but for the most part, yes it is an enjoyable experience. And remember, with all the blog networks out there, it can be as easy as creating a portfolio and e-mailing them to let them know you are interested and available.Abdalia and Neil – Thanks to both of you. I am glad you enjoyed it.
