When I put my makeup on, I don’t just want to feel like I’m throwing on any old colours; I want eyes that are the silvered purple of the Mother of Dragons, lips with the gold shimmer of a freshly brewed flask of Felix Felicis, and cheekbones sharper than Sherlock’s. Then I’ll be ready to take on the day knowing my makeup reflects the beautiful nerd I am.
Thank the Many-Faced God we’ve found Shiro Cosmetics, then. “Making nerds sparkly since 2010” Shiro Cosmetics is a site that sells makeup themed around all the geeky things you love, with collections for Harry Potter, The Legend of Zelda, Marvel, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, Pokemon and many more.
Prices range widely depending on product and the amount of the product you want. For individual eyeshadows you can pay up to $6(£4), lip colours go up to $13 (£8.50), and face powders, blushers, and bronzers go up to $8 (£5). If you’d like to opt for sample colours before you commit, these cost as little as $1 (65p). If you have to own the entire collection related to your favourite franchise, there are also offers available for buying everything together.
Shiro Cosmetics are based in the US, but they do ship internationally with delivery to the UK costing £7.50. That’s not extortionate for a small company, and to make matters even more appealing, all their products are vegan and cruelty free. Marvel-ous.
