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.

Recreation of MadeYewLook’s Bloody Mary Makeup Look

I let Discord choose which MadeYewLook body paint tutorial I should follow/recreate over on Twitch. Bloody Mary won, so this was the final result. The only thing edited in the photos is my eyes as I don’t have pure white contacts. The rest I did using body paint and eyeshadow.

Ranking and Comparing my Foundations

I like to try out different foundations then get into moods where I wear one for several weeks before switching to another one. So it takes me quite a while to get through a single bottle of foundation. To a point where I start to forget how they stack up next to each other, so I thought I would do a massive comparison of all the ones that I keep in my collection. I’m going to do a similar ranking as I did in my Juvia’s Place palette comparisons where I’m going use a few different categories to determine which foundation is truly the best. The categories will be the following: wear time, finish, price, shade range, coverage, amount and applicator.

Well This Sucks… But I’m Not Going to Let That Stop Me

As much as I like to say I’m good at pay attention to expiration dates on products, I clearly forgot how long I had a foundation and primer which caused a massive allergic reaction on my face. It’s not anything against those products since I’ve had them way too long and should’ve noticed how out of date they were. And I know I was never going to be noticed by Norvina but everyone online has been so supportive of each other that I thought I would share some more of my creative looks to see where that would get me. Plus it was fun. Then my face freaked out so I had mental flashes to art looks that people paint on their arms with face/body paints. And I was like, yes that’s what I can do.
