It’s about time Doctor Who makeup was a thing.
I’m a massive fan of Doctor Who – I never miss it (I once used all my data at a music festival watching it on iPlayer because it was a better option than any of the bands on stage) and I am pretty sure that I did a massive dance for joy when Jodie Whittaker was announced as the 13th Doctor last year. And then I expected the Doctor Who makeup palettes to start appearing all over the internet, because why not.
Alas, we’re two episodes into the new season of Doctor Who and I’ve yet to come across any official or unofficial makeup that’s aimed at fellow Whovians, so I’ve curated my own list of TARDIS blue hues and galaxy inspired eyeshadow palettes.
Doctor Who Makeup – Basically lots of TARDIS blue.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lip – Abused
The great thing about the JSC liquid lips is that they can multitask as lipstick, eyeliner and eyeshadow as they’re completely eye safe. Think of them as the sonic screwdriver of your collection, able to safe the day in a multitude of ways.
I Heart Revolution Unicorns Heart Highlighter
A quick nod to the rainbow / light spectrum on Jodie’s blue tshirt, this highlighter is as shiny as the stars in the night sky. And if you’re really careful, with a small enough brush, you can pick up just one colour or mix them together for ultimate highlighting.
Shiro Cosmetics – Loose Eyeshadow
I should have known that the indie makeup brands where the place to go for my Doctor Who themed makeup. Although there’s no unofficial palettes kicking about anyhere, it’d be super easy to put together your own.
This is what I’ve come up with on Shiro Cosmetics. Colours Left to Right, Top to bottom as follows:
I Never Joke Orchid ★ Tiers Of Joy
A Fell Voice On The Air ★ Bluebirds Are Good Luck
Pork Cutlet Bowl Fatale ★ If You Bough Out Now, I’ll Never Fir-give YouSlam-Bam In A Can ★ Attercop-Attercop
Barry M Dazzle Dust
The shade Electric Blue is absolutely stunning in real life, and because these are loose pigments, they really sparkle in the sun. It’s like looking into the time vortex it’s self.
Collection Glam Crystals Gel Glitter Liner
This is my perfect glitter eyeliner – I personally find it better than the Stila Magnificent Metals Eyeliner and it will see you through all of time and space without budging! Can also be used as an allover eyeshadow if you use a glitter primer to stop creasing.
Barry M No6 Kohl Pencil in Blue
Barry M coloured Kohl pencils are some of the best that I’ve tried that last all day and give a great colour payoff. And they’re a bargain at under £3, too!
Sugarpill Lipstick in Shiver
This is basically the TARDIS in lipstick form. Perfect dark cobalt blue with added shimmer. Fantastic.
Custom Doctor Who MAC Palette
Just for fun, I also made up my own ideal Doctor Who palette on MAC.com but alas I don’t have a spare £162 kicking about for this one so I shall have to keep dreaming for this one!
We’re all stories, in the end
