The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

The Boston Travel Diaries: Get Ready With Me

Day Two of working in the MA office, and I couldn’t get this idea out of my head. So, we’re doing a get ready with me. I’m not a morning person (like at all), so I make sure my makeup routine when I have to get up and go places is real quick. If I can put it off until I’m more awake, I will and then I take more time with it. But there’s none of that on office days.​…

Products I Commonly Use when Body Painting

Products I Commonly Use when Body Painting

I love body painting. It's been something that I've gotten better at over the course of the last year to two years. And that's mainly been due to practicing and doing a different look every single week. I would say at this point I primarily only reach for my makeup when I'm doing a body paint look. I still do daily makeup when I know I'm going to be on a video conference call or leaving my apartment, but that's pretty minimal. I don't really do the full glam thing anymore or test out a bunch of products like I used to prior to the pandemic. My habits around makeup have completely changed. So, I thought I would discuss the products I typically use for body painting since it usually ends up being the same things I reach for every time.…

Inside Out Inspired Body Paint

Inside Out Inspired Body Paint

Recently, I did a body paint inspired by Inside Out. I couldn't decide which character I wanted to do, so I did them all along with circle bubbles for memories. This was done during a live stream over on Twitch. I figured I would do a lookbook of this since I love how it turned out and it's been a hot minute since I did one of these types of posts. I might do more of them in the future for each of my looks since I do these typically every Saturday.…

Happy Bunny Day (aka Easter)

Happy Bunny Day (aka Easter)

t's been two years since Animal Crossing: New Horizons came out. And the 3rd Bunny Day since it was released. So, I thought I would do another take on the event by body painting. The first one I ever did was Zipper with eggs on my face, and this year I decided to do both on my chest instead. I love both looks, but especially love this year since it shows improvement. …

Spring Bees Body Paint & Art

Spring Bees Body Paint & Art

We all have things we're allergic to. Some people are allergic to specific foods or can't handle certain things (nuts, gluten, lactose, etc.) and then there are those that are allergic to other things (pollen, dust, animals, etc.). I fall into the last group. I'm allergic to bees. Not to a deadly degree, but if I do get stung by them or wasps or get any other kind of bug bite my skin balloons ridiculously. Add on the fact I'm allergic to the medicine commonly given to deal with that swelling, it's a fun combination. Since Spring is returning, that means bees are going to be coming back. So, I thought it would be fun to body paint them this week.…

Memorial to 2021 Body Paint

Memorial to 2021 Body Paint

As a way of looking back at 2021, I decided I would kick off the year by doing a body painting that's a combination of some of my most "loved" looks that I did in 2021. There are a total of nine different looks that went into this: deershroom, elf, split lips, butterfly skull, Captain Marvel, Howl Pendragon from Howl's Moving Castle, Ursula, Cracked Stone Statue, and Ice Cream. I was a little nervous about how this was going to turn out. I wasn't exactly going off of a reference short of looking at the body paints that I did for each of these looks. But not one with all of them combined, if you don't know I can't visualize things in my head. I don't think in pictures, so sometimes that makes things interesting when I paint, draw, or do body art. So, while I knew what I was combining, I didn't know what it would look like. So, I was surprised, to say the least with how much I loved the way this turned out.…

You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch (Body Paint)

For the first Saturday (Caturday) of December, we decided to take on Classic Christmas characters. I let my Discord decide between a few iconic characters who I could become. They ended up deciding I would turn into the Grinch. And I seriously love how this turned out.…

Howl Pendragon with Calcifer from Howl’s Moving Castle Body Paint

Howl Pendragon with Calcifer from Howl’s Moving Castle Body Paint

It's been a hot minute since I've shared a body painting on my blog. So, I thought I would share my most recent body paint/cosplay today. Since I absoltely love how it turned out. It's Howl Pendragon from the beginning of the movie with a little Calcifer on my cheek. I created this look during a Twitch stream. So, chat helped me decide the direction of the look. I couldn't decide between blond wig Howl with Calcifer or black wig with raven feathers similar to the ones Howl takes on later in the movie. We ended up going with the former.…
