Hey True Believers!
A group of beauty bloggers and myself were chatting via twitter a few weeks ago about the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon and how much we loved the series. (and some of us were watching eps to relive it all!) And we all decided to do a group collaboration to celebrate it! We each picked a Sailor Scout/Senshi and a villain/villainess from the series to do EOTDs and FOTDs on!
This week is Sailor Moon Villain week! So I’ve chosen Sailor Galaxia to be my EOTD!
Check out the other’s looks!
*( I will add links to the others blog posts as they become available!)
Polaris Inspired Look (Ver. 1, Women of X-Factor Series Pt.2). Collaboration with artist Sara Richard!
Hey True Believers!
Polaris is the next gal in the Women of X-Factor series collaboration I’m doing with the amazing Sara Richard! Polaris/Lorna Dane is the other daughter of Magneto and has the same mutant power as him, Magnetism. Her hair is naturally green (and GORGEOUS!) and she’s pretty freaking awesome! I based this look off of her time as one of the members of the second X-Factor team (During a time when they had coordinating outfits that made them look more like a team unit). She’s had a few variations of her X-Factor outfits/uniforms, but I liked this one the best. (I’m a 90′s X-Men kind of gal! )
As usual, this look was based on not the above photo exactly, but a combination of the character’s physical features, personality, costume, and powers.
With that being said,, here’s the look! Sara’s illustration of Polaris wearing the makeup I’ve created will follow my photos so make sure you go oo and aah over it (I TOTALLY DID! It’s FIERCE!)
Make sure you go to Makeupbee and like the photo! I’ve entered it in their contest with Sugarpill! Thank you!
I hope you enjoy!
Wolfsbane Inspired Look (Ver.1, Women of X-Factor Series Pt.1) Collaboration with Illamasqua and artist Sara Richard!
Hey True Believers!
So today, I bring you a look based off of Wolfsbane from her days in X-Factor (2nd team). She’s a mutant that turns into a wolf or wolf hybrids, Scottish, and very religious (more so when she was younger than she is now). There was a period where she was stuck in her half human, half wolf form and I really liked the way she looked (as it was the only time she could have long hair, otherwise, her hair doesn’t grow and stays pretty short/cropped to her head).
The wonderful people at Illamasqua were kind enough to send me some products to try out and review (the review will be in a separate post to keep this post moderately short) and I knew I wanted to do a Wolfsbane inspired look out of them. So this look consists mainly of the 7 products that were sent to me and the help of a few others that were bought and purchased with my own money with the exception of the lashes which were given to me by Sugarpill.
Around this time, my friend Sara Richard, who is an amazingly talented and wonderful artist/illustrator, contacted me about doing a collaboration. So I figured I’d combine the two into one post! She took the makeup I did on myself, and applied it to an illustration of Wolfsbane! It’s just simply gorgeous! We’ve decided we will DEFINITELY be doing more of these collaborations as this one came out so gorgeous! Her part of the collaboration is after my makeup photos!
(Note: After I had taken the initial close up eye photos, I decided to add some of Sugarpill’s Flamepoint to the brow to make them more auburn. So that is why the full face photos eyebrow color differs Also, my makeup on this blog are not based on the drawings of the characters. The drawings are a point of reference for folks who are unfamiliar with the characters. I base ALL my looks off of the character personality, powers, physical apperance, and costume (or some combination of the afore mentioned) )
I hope you all enjoy!
I’ve FINALLY got around to doing the last in the Phoenix series! I know it’s taken me a while, but all sorts of things kept popping up that I had to do first!
I wanted this look to focus more on Jean’s healing in the white hot room and her becoming the White Phoenix and had the gold in the crease fade out into red at the brow bone because it felt more warm that way, which is how I feel when I think about the white hot room. The gold liner doesn’t extend out along the edge of the eyeshadow this time because she’s more withdrawn being in the white hot room.
And of course, I’ve photoshopped my eye color to a nice green to match Jean’s. And as usual, this is based on character personality, costume, and powers, not a particular photo. (If I was just using photos and nothing else, that wouldn’t make me a good geek, now would it? )
Today I bring you part 2 of the 3 part Phoenix series! So this one I pulled in a bit and didn’t flare it out past the edge of the eye or above the eyebrow because I wanted to show the restraint Phoenix had before she went Dark Phoenix and lost control. So it’s a bit more streamlined than the previous that flared out. I also lightened the green of the iris (AKA the eye color is photoshopped! My true eye color is hazel!) to reflect Phoenix’s temperament before she went Dark Phoenix as well as using a lighter red wig (I love my wigs!). (I realize I’m working a bit backwards doing Phoenix after Dark Phoenix, but I just decided to make this a series on the spur of the moment ).
