the protagonist of today’s geek post is Dinah Laurel Lance, aka Black Canary in the Arrow TV Show. I have to admit that I am not a big fan of this character (sometimes I cannot stand her) but her makeup is perfect in every detail and I think that her Black Canary look is a great (and easy) idea for any mask party you will participate in. Since Katie Cassidy face has as a unique shape the contouring is essential in her makeup: you can notice that the lights and shades game is more or less highlighted in the various looks below. As you will notice from my proposal Laurel always tries to maintain a classic makeup look that enhances her femininity; but when she is dressed up as a vigilante she shows off a darker look that terrorizes her enemies.
I dedicated another post to a female character in Arrow, Felicity Smoak. You can find the article HERE! I remind you that this last look is perfect for girls with glasses. ;)
Let me know in the comments below which one of the looks below is your favourite. :)
Laurel’s Day Look is very bright both on the eyes and the lips. A pearly white eyeshadow is used near the upper and lower lashes to open up her gaze and capture the attention of everyone around her, while on the lips a pink gloss emphasizes the shape of her lips. A pink blush and a lengthening mascara complete the look.

The look that Laurel prefers to wear during the exclusive parties in Starling City is concentrated on the eyes; here she recreates a smokey eyes with gold and brown colours. To underline the shape of her eyes she uses an eye pencil in taupe blended near the upper and lower lashline together with a volumizing black mascara. The pink on her lips is more intense , while the contouring is realized on the temple, the cheekbones and at the side of the nose.

And here there is Laurel in her heroine costume, ready to defeat the most dangerous criminals. Even though Laurel is still an inexperienced fighter she goes on the field with great determination and this is reflected in her makeup too. The black colour is prevalent in her overall look, the costume and the mask are both black together with her eyes and lips. The only light thing is the peach blush that pops out below the mask. Finally the false eyelashes are used to highlight her eyes, covered by the mask.
