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.

Today’s look is inspired by that badass alien villainess, Deathbird!
Deathbird is known as being one of the X-Men’s many enemies and was also known for constantly trying to take the Shi’ar throne from her sister Lilandra, who was the Empress/Majestrix (to see the look I did based on her, click here). She finally became Empress after marrying Cyclops’ and Havok’s insane long lost brother, Vulcan. She’s also more birdlike in having talons, which is a trait looked down upon by her people (she’s from an avian race, but talons are a symbol of inferiority of evolvement)
Needless to say, she’s a bit unstable! But she has a very cool design and she’s a fierce fighter. I took her trademark eye markings and recreated them using the eyeliner and simplified them a bit, as different artists tend to draw them differently, and also borrowed colors from her armor and cape. The brows have hints of metallic purple like her armor as well. The lipstick I chose also is a reflection of the dark pinks she wears in her headdress and feathered cape.
I hope you like!

Today I have a Madame Hydra aka Viper look for you all! I loooove Viper (I prefer to call her by that code name as it’s short, sweet, and to the point ;P) because she’s such a bad ass. I also love her because it gave me an excuse to use the BEAUTIFUL green lipstick and eyeshadow Cassie Wanda over at Lime Crime was kind enough to send me from their Alchemy collection. The moment I saw it, I just knew a Viper look had to be done because it’s Viper’s signature lip color.
Viper is the face and leader of the criminal/terrorist organization Hydra, as well as the wife (or ex? I can’t keep track lol) of Wolverine. Yup..she’s married (or was married) to Wolverine..not because he was in love with her, but it was something that had to be done due to underworld politics and her blackmailing him into doing so. (You can read more about that on the Wikipedia link I posted up above, or go pick up the trade paperbacks!) Anyway, she’s not a mutant, doesn’t have any super powers, she’s just a badass chick! She sometimes has dark green hair, sometimes it’s just black, but she’s usually just covered head to toe in green, so that was the main color I used for this look. I was also really inspired by the makeup done by Tanja aka Rose Shock and love the way she does her eye liner, so I borrowed the eyeliner shape from her.
I hope you like!
(On a side note: I’m working on getting everything bought and ready to start filming tutorials for you all, so please go to my facebook page www.facebook.com/makeupbysiryn and vote on the poll I have there so I know what most of you would prefer style wise. Thank you!)
Hey True Believers!
Welcome to the second makeup review of the month of October! Because October is my favorite month all year, due to all the awesome fall goodness, I wanted to do a special set of reviews for this month, centered around Halloween! e.l.f. teamed up with Disney and came out with 3 limited edition makeup books for sale only at select Walmarts around the country (They can be found in the Halloween aisle with the costumes and what not). Each makeup book centers on an evil villainess; Cruella, The Evil Queen, and Maleficent. This week, I’ll be reviewing the Evil Queen aka Queen Grimhilde makeup book for you!
*This is a pic heavy post!
I was driving home tonight and was thinking that I should probably use some colors from my Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette and my Sugarpill Sweetheart Palette. I kept thinking about the really pretty pink in it and the blue and I was like “Wait a min…didn’t Nebula have pink and blue in her costume?” and sure enough, she does, and she rocks it! Nebula is an evil space pirate (Evil Space Pirates FTW!), and she just has that bad ass look about her even though she’s wearing pink Bitch is FIERCE! LOVE IT! lol
This post will also double as Nymphette’s FOTD/EOTD challenge (Super Hero Day) even though Nebula is a Super Villain
Anyway, here it is!! Hope you like!
