Today I have something a little different for you! It’s a collaboration I’ve been working on for the past few months with fashion designer Leila Marlene, the creator of Phantomlovely! She decided she had a need to expand her line into plus sizes and asked me to be her test model, which I jumped on immediately! I first discovered her work about a year and a half ago from my friend Ashley’s blog and totally fell in love with the clothes! So of course I was thrilled that she asked me to help her provide her amazing clothes to plus sizes! You can read her side of the story here!
I also had a desire to do a new Siryn themed makeup since she’s recently become the new Morrigan in the Marvel Universe, which was crazy to have happened when it did because at the time I was working on my own version of The Morrigan for Myth Masque last year. I took that as a sign for sure! I also wanted (was super excited!) to shoot with my friend Grace Morgan as well so I did ALL THE THINGS! :)
I have plotted and planned this look for a while now and I have FINALLY got it done! I freaking LOVE Domino!! She’s one of my favorite X-Men characters!
I obviously based this look off her black birthmark and white skin (Her powers are based on Luck, which is kind of hard to translate lol), but gave it a little kick by adding rhinestones and a bit of glitter. I really LOVE how this one came out! Especially the white eye (which I will probably wear out more often!) It basically looks like her, but an amped up version. And Dom wears a ton of black, so of course, so did I. :) I also photoshopped my irises blue to match Dom’s!
I was also heavily influenced/inspired by a makeup artist who I’ve admired so much for a few years now, Jody from Monroe Misfit Makeup. That woman is SO damn talented and omg gorgeous! You all need to go to her blog and YouTube NOW! (Well after you go through my post haha!) Also, please forgive my dry winter skin! Totally exfoliating in a bit to help with that lol. And on another side note, listening to my fav band, Depeche Mode, totally put me in a great mood while doing this! :)
