I finally got contacts, which means I can do creative makeup again! I avoided it when I just had my glasses as I COULD NOT see what I was doing. The looks weren’t clean or I couldn’t get the details that I wanted. So, I took eight months off from doing it all together. And then basically stopped posting on here about makeup. But since I have contacts again, we’re bringing it back!
So, I thought I would start out with going over (reviewing) Madeyewlook’s new line of body paint. Lex is an incredible body painter that I have been following on YouTube/Twitch for years. I’ve even done a video in the past that she featured attempting her Alice Madness Return’s Insane Child… which is one of the looks featured in this post as I thought it was fitting and I recreated it.
Overview of Madeyewlook Body Paints
These body paints are fragrance free, cruelty free, and water activated. So far, Lex has released eight colors in total. Individually the paints are $14, but they are available in packs as well. And they contain 1 fl. oz. or 30 mL of product. The colors she has released so far are: Yeti (white), Ink (black), Cherry (primary red), Sunflower (yellow), Neptune (primary blue), Vampire (deep plum-like red), Oak (brown), and Bone Tone (off white/cream). Oak and Vampire look very similar in the pan when they are dry, but once you get them wet, they are very different.
As this is a water-activated body paint, you add water then use a brush or sponge to apply it to your skin. Like most body paint, you have to get used to using them. Recommendation from Lex:
To mix multiple colors together, wet both paint cakes and brush the product on a sanitary washable or disposable surface (we recommend makeup mixing palettes), mixing them on the surface itself. Always be sure to let the paints dry before placing the lid back on after use. Never put lids on while the paints are still wet.Madeyewlook (Lex)
The first time I used the paint was for a Corpse Bride inspired look. I mixed Yeti with Neptune… and well it was patchy. But I don’t fault the paint for that. I was just struggling to get the right shade of blue. And didn’t want to ruin the paint by dipping my brush in both shades. Not that you can really tell I struggled with that in the final look as I used eyeshadow to get rid of those patches. Plus, white in general is hard to work with. I don’t quite have that criss-cross motion down right yet. Otherwise I had no issues with patches while using the paint or blending the shades.
The paint itself is lightweight (similar to the weight of foundation or tinted moisturizer), I didn’t notice it on my skin and even when I layered it never started to cake or crack.
Does it stain? I did find so far that only vampire has stained my skin. It was only slightly though. A little bit of concealer and you didn’t notice that my skin was red in the shape of where I had the insane child look on my face. It is only temporary though, and since I could easily cover it up I did not mind.

I love the Madeyewlook body paint and will be primarily using these in the future for creative looks. I can’t wait to see what other colors she comes out with. As much as I love mixing colors, sometimes it’s nice to have the shade already made. Like teal, green, or orange.
