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.
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 know, some of you were TOTALLY going “Okay, Siryn is obviously this chick’s favorite super hero. Is she ever going to do a look based on her?” Well here it is! I had put it off doing it since in the first poll no one seemed to have an interest in me doing a look based on her, but you know what, I did it anyway! lol. She’s my absolute favorite super heroine since I was a kid and whether she calls herself Siryn or Banshee (after her deceased father) she will always be my favorite.
I based this look off of her 3rd costume which is one of my favorite costume’s she had I only did the eyes and was in a bit of a hurry so I didn’t do the full face. I hope you like!
