Ah the Cardassians, blood thirsty for power, blind to other peoples blight and lovers of fish coffee. The Cardassians remind me of the oily politician of the universe. You can see that they want to help you but something just seems off. Their smile doesn't reach their eyes and their phaser gun is certainly not set to stun. The Cardassians appear to have evolved from some sort of crab which could be why they have scales around their eyes, neck and down their backs. The "spoon" shape in the middle of their forehead that was put into their planet's crest.
They prefer hot, dark places like caves with hot springs. On their home world they have a series of spas that would be to hot for other humanoids. Their government was very powerful until the terroristic fights between their people and the the planet they occupied for fifty years called Bajior. The Bajiorians fought bitterly against the Cardassians while their planets resources were sucked dry. It wasn't until after the Federation became involved that they began to peace talks. Even those were hard thanks to many left over Bajorn terrorist cells and even group of ex-officers from Starfleet called the Marqui.
I chose the grays, whites and blacks to represent their skin. The cut-crease is suppose to emulate their sunken in eyes and heavy lids. I tried smirking in the pictures but my Cardassian smirk is no where near as good as my Klingon rage face.
What I used:
Nyx jumbo e/s pencil in Milk (Used as base and to line the waterline.)
Detrivore cosmetics e/s in Golgotha (A soft light gray used on the lid.)
Nyx e/s in Black (Used on the lower crease to create shape. Also used along the lower part of the lower lid to create shape.)
Evil shades e/s in Phoenix (A lovely darker gray used in the crease.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Dinosaur Plushie (Sparkly multi-faceted silver applied to the ball of the lid wet.)
Sugarpill e/s in Tako (Used to highlight the inner corner of the lid, the brow bone, along the lower lash line and overtop the line between the crease and lower lash line.)
Almay Liquid eyeliner in black (Small black line to give the eye some definition.)
Nyx Round Lipstick in Rae
I was planning this look in class. It was between taking notes I swear! I also drew out the Vulcan eye but I need to learn to cover my brows better for that look!
