Costume makeup

I’ve always loved makeup, but I’ve really only done it on myself before. This fall and spring I joined my school drama club and did the costumes and makeup for the actors. Most of the girls knew how to makeup their faces, but the boys were clueless.

A friend of mine created a short film and needed makeup done so he asked me to help out. I was a little nervous because I’ve never done costume makeup on other people but Pinterest helped me out a lot. He wanted a look that was half cyborg, half geisha, super weird I know. Anyway, the end turned out really well!

Here’s the robot side

For the base silver color I used my Tarte pallet, I used smoke and mirrors (bottom left) and Slate bells ring (2nd column on left). Then for his highlight I used my bare minerals glitter shadow. I drew on the black lines with bare minerals black powder eyeliner. Last, the “screws” were done with my Ulta sparkle gel liner.

Here’s the Geisha side

The white is actually all talcum powder. To get the powder to stick to his face, I applied his Neutrogena foundation really tacky so that the powder had something to hold on to. It took a while to get the pigment and fully even, but the end result turned out well.

Finally, here’s the final view

His eyes are lined with Jordana liner and he’s wearing Revlon red lipstick.

I had a lot of fun doing this makeup and I hope I have the chance to do more stuff like it!

Graduation dresses

Graduation is right around the corner! It’s a time for celebrating knowledge, freedom, and the future. I am so excited to go to college and learn new things, but I’m also excited for the ceremony. Many girls take this as an opportunity to wear something cute under their robes, often choosing the color white. As much as I like white dresses (they always look so fresh and clean) there are so many other options! Don’t be afraid to go out of the box with a color or a pattern. Stores are bursting with great summer options perfect for wearing under your graduation robe.

As for choosing what’s graduation appropriate, definitely go with something short, so that it’s underneath the robe. Wear something with thicker straps so they don’t fall off your shoulders underneath the robe. Make sure the fabric is light because generally the robes are polyester, aka sweaty. Also, as in as high necklines are right now, make sure it doesn’t look weird sticking out from your robe. Also in regard to the robe, try not to go for a clashing color scheme, or worse (in my opinion) matching.

This one also comes in pink, which I actually like better, but the white one is on the model.
