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.…

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.…

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.…

Squeeze of the Day (Citrus Fruit Inspired Makeup Look)

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.…

Making a Clown of Myself

Making a Clown of Myself

I haven't done a makeup photo diary or post in a while. I've done creative makeup looks for Caturday (a thing I do every Saturday with two of my streaming friends: Foxtail and Cassii over on Twitch), but I just haven't made specific posts about them. Sometimes I don't remember to post them on Instagram though the most of them are. But this one is just creative makeup for the sake of creative makeup. I wasn't trying to do it for anything. I was just in the mood and picked one of the looks I had in my Inspo folder. This pastel rainbow clown look inspired by @yannalinnaa and @jamescharles.…
