Throughout the history of professional football, I’m glad that in every major association or league there was a team based somewhere in Texas called the Texans.  Your other name choices when this team was formed (roughly in 2000)  included: the Bobcats, Stallions, Toros, and Apollo.  Maybe in another state those other names are fine but this is Texas, damn it.  Good thing current Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt gave the blessing to have the Texans come back to life.  Remember, the Kansas City Chiefs were the original Houston Texans before their move.

Colors Used

Red – Kryolan Blusher in 080.
White – On eyelid is Disney by Sepphora Cinderella Storylook Eye Shadow Palette in Ball Gown (limited edition).  Star was drawn with Kryolan Eyeliner in Silver.

Very clever, Houston.  Your colors and design marks mimic the Texas flag.  The team is a relatively young franchise, so there isn’t much color or design change to the original 2002 uniforms to the modern Nike uniforms.  Away uniforms are white jerseys, white pants, when the 2002 uniforms were white jerseys, blue pants.   I find the design appealing.  With so many teams also using red/white/blue color schemes it’s easy to see why it’s not as memorable as it should be.

I have tiny eyelid space and a giant crease.  It makes doing designs on my eyelids eyelids difficult.  I did a more stylized version of the horns and the bull head shape.  Stop the color as short as you can.  What we’re trying to do is lift the eye look with the “horns.”
