I was recently asked to be a guest on the ICON Network for Curious Joi‘s makeup tutorial for a Scarlet Witch cosplay! While it’s not screen accurate (They requested it to be different), it still works for the character and it was so much fun to do this! The goal was to make this makeup easy for Joi to replicate while cosplaying at San Diego Comic Con!
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!)
