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.
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 >.<.
