Category Archives: Make Up Challenge Looks/Collaborations
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!)

Madelyne Pryor, The Goblin Queen Inspired Look! X-Men Villainesses Collaboration with Artist Sara Richard Part 1!
Hey True Belivers!
Today’s look is a special one! I’ve teamed up with one of my dear friends, and supremely talented artist, Sara Richard again to bring you another collaboration! This time, we’re doing some X-Men villainesses! To start this awesome collaboration off, I picked the lovely, unfortunate, and enraged Madelyne Pryor aka the Goblin Queen from the now classic Inferno storyline!
Madelyne was the wife of Scott Summers aka Cyclops and the biological mother of Cable. She was also cloned from Jean Grey by Mr. Sinister (which is something NO one knew when she met and married Cyclops, but common…everyone noticed how much she looked like Jean and NO ONE suspected it?? common people!! LOL), and was an all around nice girl, up until Jean came back from “the dead” (I use that term loosely lol) and Cyclops left Madelyne and their newborn to be with his now back from the dead ex girlfriend….AWKWARD! Basically, Madelyne couldn’t handle it, and decided to shack up with a bunch of demons and went mental. She also tried to sacrifice her own kid…wow! (to sum things up!)
I based this eye makeup and lips off of her sexy black costume (can you say supreme under boob?! jeez…I don’t even know how she didn’t fall out….double sided tape? lol) and pulled the red from her hair and also the demonic energy she was weilding. And like our previous collaborations, Sara took the makeup I designed and wore, and placed it on an illustration of the character wearing it.
I had filmed a tutorial for this, but I lost ALL of the footage of me doing the makeup and only managed to not lose the intro and outro. D’Oh!
I hope you guys enjoy this look and make sure to go check out Sara’s work and buy a few prints if you really adore them as much as I do!
ps. my eye color has been photoshopped green in the pics. they are NOT contacts! I was going to wear mine, but my eyes were super irritated this day.
Scarlett Johansson’s 1990s Goth Look! W Magazine 4 Decades of Fashion Collaboration with VintageorTacky, Sokolum79, and Goldiestarling!
Hey True Believers!
Today I bring you something a little different from what I normally do. I know I’ve only ever done one other celebrity inspired look before (I went as Nicki Minaj to a holiday party a year ago. You can see that here.) but here’s another recreation for you! I saw the above image of Rooney Mara, Mia Wasikowska, Scarlett Johansson, and Keira Knight from the W Magazine 4 Decades of Fashion shoot and LOVED it so much, I asked some of my gal pals if they’d like to recreate it! Everyone was really into the photos as well and this collaboration was born! Very rarely do I get super excited about celebrity makeup enough to do something on my blog regarding it, so I was glad I was able to do this collaboration with 3 ladies I’ve looked up to in the makeup vlogging arena since before I started my blog.

We’ll all be together at IMATS LA this weekend walking around, shopping, catching up with other bloggers, vloggers, followers/subscribers, and makeup company friends, so please, if you see us, say hello! We’d love to meet some of you all!!
This also is my first YouTube video tutorial, which you can watch below: (Please Subscribe!)
I hope you all like it!
ps. That white stuff in my hair is from Sally’s..it’s a spray in color..and it was horrible in my hair so I’m sorry it looks bad! LOL Also, my skin is still adjusting to the Paula’s Choice skin care I started a few weeks ago, and combined with the cold winter weather it’s resulted in dry flakey skin, even after exfoliating >.<.
Hey True Believers!
Recently I’ve had the honor of being followed by the creator of Top Cow Comics, Marc Silvestri, on Twitter and my Facebook page and it prompted me to revisit my original Witchblade look which I wasn’t quite fond of when I had initially posted it last year. I knew one day I’d redo it, and so decided now would be a good time to do so! I always wanted to be a little more artistic with it and being so flattered that Marc liked my work, it gave me what I needed to get that inspiration for Sara’s, the current bearer of the Witchblade, makeup.
Sara is drawn having different colored stones in her Witchblade with a red one usually on the back of her hand and the blue (shown above) near her elbow. I chose to go with the red stone on this look, mostly because I didn’t have any blue rhinestones to work with lol. I also collaborated again with my friend, Sara Richard, who provided the illustration of Sara wearing the makeup I designed. It can be seen near the bottom of this post!
I hope you like it!
Delirium Inspired Look (Pt.1 of The Endless Series) Collaboration with artist Sara Richard and Illamasqua!
Hey True Believers!
At WonderCon last month, I had the honor of finally getting to meet my online friend (and frequent collaborator) Sara Richard and hang out with her at her booth during the convention. She was just as awesome in person as she was talking to online and I had so much fun getting to spend time with her and talk about our previous collaborations with the people who stopped by her booth to buy her art.
In one of our conversations, she mentioned how cool it would be to do a look based off of Delirium from the Sandman Comics by Neil Gaiman (who is part of a group of beings known as The Endless) and how much she’d been wanting to draw her. Well I the thought had actually gone through my mind as well in the passing months and we decided that Delirium would be our next collaboration! I wanted to do something a little off (two different eyes looks, one on each eye), colorful, and a look that would be something Delirium might wear since she is ever changing in her look and style. Illamasqua had sent me some products recently from their newest collection Human Fundamentalism, that I though would be perfect with this look so I used all the products they sent me seeing how they were bright and bold and perfect for what I wanted to do. I didn’t get a close up pic of the other eye because it’s always so awkward for me to photo my left eye for some reason and I couldn’t get a photo to come out the way I wanted it >.< (Need more practice at the angle for my left eye photos!). I also realized I had done the bold look on the wrong eye so I flipped the photo lol. WINNING! lol.
A review for the products they sent me will be posted later.
(Irises have been photoshopped to match Delirium’s eye color. They aren’t contacts )
I hope you all enjoy what we came up with!
