Hello hello!!

I have been absent this halloween, I am aware of that, but I would never let a halloween go by without delivering some blood and gore!

Here it is! The aftermath of being shot in the face/eye.

I made this by covering my eye with cotton and some tape, then I added scar wax to the edges and blended it to my skin, roughed up the inner edges to give it a more ripped look. Then I used dark red and black eye shadow to cover the white cotton, adding some dark red lipstick to the outer edges of the cotton. Finally; BLOOD! Cover the whole thing with fake blood, alot of it!

There we go! Done!

Hey there!

This past week I was getting more and more fascinated by FX gelatin, however, being vegan means I don't use gelatin. So I started wondering what I could use instead to get the same final product. After A WHOLE LOT of experimenting I finally had a recipe that worked! I used glucose syrup, a few drops of warm water, potato flour, and a drop of fake blood. I mixed it all together and microwaved it for a few seconds. This is not necessary but it does make the mixture easier to apply. Once it has cooled, apply a thin layer to the skin, stick cotton to it, and then apply a second thin layer over the cotton. This will give the raised look. On the scarred look I put powder over the makeup to make it more skin like. On the fresh burn I put some smokey shadows in the deeper places of the wound, and started pulling at the "gelatin" to make it look like the skin had burst. Then add blood, like any good SFX MUA, and there you go!

Hey!

So I hadn't done a SFX makeup in a really long time (not counting my last post because that was just blood) and I really felt the urge to, so I asked some people for inspiration and someone suggested a skeleton face. I have done that before, however, and it also felt kind of played out and unoriginal at this point so I took it a step further. This did turn out more like a zombie, but the skull part is still there. I did a wound on the forehead that is supposed to show the skull and a sort of bite/decomposition wound that showed of the teeth and jawbone, although the jawbone got a bit too covered in blood making it hard to see.

I created this look using wax to make the teeth, and liquid latex + cotton balls to make the edges of the wounds. Then obviously eyeshadow to make it all come to life, and blood for realism (and fun).

​This is my interpretation of the mythical creature Siren. I made this post as sort of a storyboard. The first row shows how pure a Siren is and how she can lure in sailors. The second row shows how quickly that pureness can change and become something gritty and dark when animal instincts kick in. The last row shows the transition back from the feeding instinct to a humanesk creature feeling remorse for killing.

I usually don't edit my pictures this much unless I view it more as art or a story like this. Also, biting a blood capsule to allow the blood to get in my teeth and spill out of my mouth was really fun and gave a nice effect, but it did NOT taste good. It tasted super sweet in the worst way and made me salivate all over the place. I basically felt like a rabies infected ferret.

I'm back and I've graduated! I'm officially a fully-educated makeup-artist!! Anyway, because of graduating it's been a hot minute since I did any makeup and I just felt like I needed a full face of makeup. So here is a drag look I did on myself today. I should honestly enter the career of being a legitimate bioqueen.

This was honestly the messiest, most complicated shoot I have ever done. It is, however, 100% worth it because I think this is one of my most sucessful shoots ever.

Inspired vaguely by the lady in the bathtub in "The Shining", I created this decomposing bathtub body with latex, babyoil, and lip glosses. Latex and babyoil is not a very nice combo to clean up since the oil makes the latex sticky and hard to clean up. I still have small clumps of latex in my hair as I'm writing this!

Anyway, as I said, completely worth it because I'm over the moon with the results.

​Hello again, old friends!

It's been forever since I made a new post! I have been super busy with school and travels. Anyway, christmas is in a few days and I love christmas more than any other time of the year, and since it only comes once a year I had to take advantage of it and do a christmas makeup.

I did a white and red cut-crease eye, red eyebrows, and a dark green winged eyeliner. For the lips I went with a classic red, but added a twist in the form of glitter. I also did a powdered highlight on my cheeks to make my face "pop" a bit more.

(As usual, here is a free picture of my cat, you know, because it's christmas n' all)

Hello!

I have been working a lot on a short essay for my history class and also watching a lot of historical documentaries lately, and today I was just about to watch one on syphilis in the 1500s as inspiration hit me like a ton of bricks. So I made myself into an Elizabethan era noble. I then gave myself a dose of syphilis.

So here we have it, two pictures, two paintings, two works of art! The first a regular, common painting from the era, the second a painting of how they realistically would have looked.

​Hello!

Todays class in school was about SFX makeup and basically just practicing different types of realistic wounds. I decided to do a scabbed over bite wound and a burn.

When it comes to realistic wounds or injuries, it is always important to think about exactly how the injury occued and how it would look if it were real.

The bite wound I made was a zombie bite that hadn't been washed and therefor scabbed over with all the dirt under the skin.

The burn wound I made as if someone had poured boiling water from a kettle straight on my arm. When a burn is made by water it is typically slightly more pink and peach than red (as it is with other burns). It also tends to be more neat and "pretty".
