Hey True Believers!
It’s been a long while since I’ve posted a new look and I apologize for making you all wait! My life has been crazy busy since costuming season started (which some of you know, is something else I do). I’ve been super busy making new costumes for the renaissance faire as well as the masquerade balls coming up this summer! (Myth Masque and Labyrinth of Jareth). All of that combined with a full-time job has left very little time for me to update my blog, film tutorials, and do makeup on myself. WonderCon is also this weekend and I hope I run into some of you guys there!! I’ll be there the entire weekend so if you see me please say hello! :)
With all that said, I present to you Miss Sinister! Miss Sinister, or Claudine Renko, is a female clone of Mr. Sinister, the infamous X-Men villain. She’s just as crafty as her male counterpart, but has more sex appeal. She’s a fairly new character in the X-Men universe, and her fate is currently unknown, but I do hope they keep her around as I think it’d be interesting to see her and a fully resurrected Mr. Sinister go at each others throats. . Her abilities are telepathy and a healing factor. She’s basically Mr. Sinister without his memories.
For the shape of the eye makeup, I incorporated a stylized “S” in using the crease. I also used the traditional colors for Miss Sinister/Mr. Sinister which are the red, black, and white. I also got a chance to use some of the new Sugarpill Eyeshadows from the Cold Chemistry collection I picked up at IMATS LA this past January. (I have an IMATS LA haul video filmed, and not edited, so that will be up at some point where I talk about some of the things I purchased.) And again, I’ve collaborated with my amazing artist friend Sara Richard who took my makeup design and illustrated it on a portrait of Miss Sinister which you can see below!
I do have a tutorial for this look, but alas, I’ve had no time to edit it so it will be up on my YouTube channel sometime in April I hope! (Basically I’ll be quite busy until after July! So I’ll do what I can!)

Lip Gloss: Manic Panic Collection High Voltage Gloss in Radioactive.* (Mini Review: This is the coolest packaging for a gloss I have ever seen! When you pull unscrew the cap and pull out the wand, there’s a light under it that comes on! You can use it to apply your gloss in a dark car or in a club using the mirror on the side of the gloss tube! This gloss is a gorgeous metallic red that is blue based and the smell is kind of like a plastic smell, so it doesn’t have a candy or sugary smell to it. It’s not a super sticky gloss and is opaque. I’d use it again, but I wish it smelled more appealing. I think I actually have video of this on the tutorial that is going up later for this look.)
