Discworld Series: Lord Vetinari

First of the character inspired looks just had to go to Lord Vetinari, he's mentioned (either by name or as the Patrician) in practically every book in the series and appears in 16 of them so far I believe. He's such a big part of the Discworld universe I couldn't leave him out. And how can you not love a man so unflappable who can 'accomplish more with one eyebrow than most people can with two and a lifetime of practice'.

Havelock Vetinari is the current Patrician of Ankh-Morpork. He has been the supreme ruler for some years and is the successor of Mad Lord Snapcase. The Assassins' Guild have an AM$ 1,000,000 fee for his inhumation, though rumour says that they are not accepting contracts on him at present. As a former Assassin himself, he is probably just too difficult to kill. However, his greatest defence against would-be plotters is that he carefully sees to it that a reality with him as Patrician is slightly better than one without himIt was his discovery that people only really want stability and that tomorrow should pretty much resemble today, and this has been his greatest contribution to Ankh-Morpork. Impressively, he manages to keep this up even while he drags Ankh-Morpork, sometimes kicking and screaming, into the future.
Havelock Vetinari Makeup

Used: Maybelline Timeless Black colour tattoo as a base, Black Rose Minerals Jet on the center of
the lid, Black Rose Minerals Scabbed Wings on the outer corner, Geek Chic Tidal Wave on the lower lashline.

The black inspired by Havelock and his uniform of all black (his crest is even black on black), the hint of dark red at the corner and the sharp shape was inspired by the Patrician's fair but sometimes sharp attitude towards those he punishes. The ice blue on the lower lashline was an injection of colour from the Patrician's eyes.


  1. Love this, vetinari is one of my favourite discworld characters. Love how you've done the look. X

  2. This look is AWESOME! I love the bold cat-shape look! The contrast of the dark black with the icy of the blue is beautiful~
