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.…

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

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.…

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.…

Marvel’s Scarlet Witch Body Paint

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.…

Pirate Map Makeup Look

Pirate Map Makeup Look

I did this look two weeks ago, and figured why not share it on the blog. I'm in a bit of a reading slump after finishing A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas. Like I can't pick up another book without my brain circling back to that one. So anything book related is on pause for the time being until my brain gets over it. And I haven't shared anything makeup related in ages, so I thought I'd share this today. This look was was inspired by @keilidhmua and @llumosmakeup. …

Can We Dupe it? Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette

Can We Dupe it? Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien Palette

At the beginning of 2020, Jeffree Star announced that the Alien Palette, which has been out of stock for some time will no longer be coming back. Since this is one of my favorite palettes even though I broke it when I took it out of the original packaging, I was debating on getting a second which now will no longer be happening. So, I thought I would bring back this series and see if I can come up with some dupes for my favorite shades in that palette.…
