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!

Halloween!

It is November first and the transition from Halloween to thanksgiving has already begun! Despite that, I was super proud of my costume this year, so I decided I would share. My best friend and I wanted to do something together and since we both love Disney, we decided to be Winnie the Pooh and Piglet. Both of these costumes were simple to create, but had great end results.

I simply took a plain pink t shirt (Tj maxx) and sewed with black thread straight across (not going through to the other side obviously). This gave the striped effect of Piglets sweater. I then wore black leggings (garage) to keep warm and on top some light pink soccer socks (sports authority) and a pink sparkly tutu (party city) for some fun. Last, I made my own ears using a plain brown stretchy headband (cvs) and sewed little pink triangles of felt (michaels) on. IMG_7512

My friend’s costume was basically the same as mine, just in red and yellow not pink. She wore soffe shorts underneath her tutu instead of leggings because she doesn’t get cold as easily as I do. She too bought her socks at sports authority and tutu at party city, and used felt to make her ears.

Our costume was a total success and we go so many compliments! Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!
