I Turned Myself into the Queen of Hearts

I let my Discord decided what makeup look I would do, and Queen of Hearts ended up winning. So, I decided to pull inspiration from a few different places for this look. Those being: Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and the playing card for the Queen of Hearts. I think you’ll find subtle nods to each version in the look. From the color palette to the lips to the roses painted red to the drawn appearance of the card. I really like how the look turned out… and of course, it gave me an excuse to put on a crown and my favorite blood-red wig.

Squeeze of the Day (Citrus Fruit Inspired Makeup Look)

This week’s theme for Caturday is Fruit, so I went for a citrus fruit-inspired look. I used a look by @lenaaleew as a reference for this look. I absolutely love how this turned out with the lemons, limes, and oranges. I didn’t really have an outfit that went with the look, so I wanted to focus on the makeup and pulling in elements with the white and green.

Marvel’s Scarlet Witch Body Paint

I’ve been really enjoying doing body painting lately or at least doing it once a week. That way I don’t get burnt out. This week I turned myself into Marvel’s Scarlet Witch from Wandavision. I love Wanda, she’s one of my favorite characters in the MCU. I let my Discord decide who I turned myself into and I’m really glad they went with this character. The other choices were: Deadpool, Spiderman, Captain Marvel, and Iron Man. Plus, I haven’t seen anyone else recreate this version of Scarlet Witch in body paint. The original? Sure. But this one? Nope. Maybe I’m wrong but I didn’t see any on a quick search. I mostly was trying to get a sense of how anyone else would do the headpiece, but I couldn’t find one that didn’t use an actual headpiece, so I winged it. And I have to say I love how this look turned out.

Cruelty Free Highlighter That I Basically Live In

Regardless if I’m having a full makeup day with foundation or a half-makeup day with concealer and a few other products, if I’m wearing makeup that day I’m wearing a highlighter of some type. As I mentioned in my Fenty Beauty First Impressions, I prefer two different types of highlights depending on their placement. A subtle highlight that gives a glow from within on my forehead, cupid’s bow and chin. And a blinding highlight on the top of my cheeks and down the bridge of my nose. Though days where I’m only wearing concealer, I only highlight the tops of my cheeks as otherwise it will generally vanish too quickly as there’s nothing underneath to hold it in place. So I have more blinding highlighters in this list then subtle ones.

Hourglass Vanish Foundation First Impression

About two weeks ago, I decided instead of just using up the rest of the products that weren’t cruelty-free I would donate them and give them away so I wouldn’t keep using them. I could’ve sworn I had cruelty-free foundation, but it was only a really light coverage one that doesn’t really look the best on my skin on days were I could use some more coverage. So I went to Sephora and tried out literally every fair foundation in the lightest shade since that’s what I need. But they were all too dark or warm tone so I just looked like an oompa loompa. Then I remembered a video I saw both Jeffree Star and Tati did on Hourglass Vanish Foundation. 

Muted Purple/Mauve Makeup Look

One of my favorite eye shadow looks is a soft muted purple tone as it looks really natural and I feel like my eyes really pop when I wear this color. Plus since getting ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Marshmallow, I find this makes that shade a lot more wearable when I’m getting ready in the morning for work.
