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.
For one of my recent live streams over on Twitch, I turned makeup into a candy/sweet. This took about 4 hours in total to complete, and I got a bit carried away with the look. But I absolutely love how it turned out. This look was a lot of different eyeshadow palettes and almost every one of MadeYewLook Body Paints. My desk was an absolute mess afterward, but it was totally worth it.
Tonight during a Twitch stream, I turned myself into a cracked stone statue using body paint and some eyeshadow. This look was roughly inspired by @kristinefargerik and @artyfaceart, and the only thing edited in the photos is my eye color. We got a little carried away during stream with stone/cracked puns, which I thought was hilarious. Usually I have a long list of products that I used when creating looks but I only used a few products. Those being: Madeyewlook body paint in Yeti and Ink, ColourPop Smoke Show palette, and NYX liquid liners.
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.
I’ve been pretty good about not buying every new ColourPop release. Granted, my sister has still been very generous in ordering them for me as surprises lately. Not every release but a fair amount of the eyeshadow palettes. Not all of them I have used or reached for a lot. But there are two lately that have stood out mainly as they’ve been sitting out and I’ve worn them almost every day since I received them. Those palettes being the Lust for Dusk and So Very Lovely.
It’s been ages since I did a makeup review, but I haven’t really had a reason to. I’ve been very good about using the makeup I have rather than getting anything new. But the Kaleidos Makeup Flower Punk collection caught my eye, so I got almost everything. Well, almost all of it. I got the lip clay sets and eyeshadow palettes. As I don’t really need lip masks, temporary tattoos, and coloring book.
