This weekend I had the pleasure of making up some beautiful ladies for a "Surrealism Ball" in San Francisco. Also, because we're in San Francisco, this meant that the makeup had to be over-the-top! The inspiration for each person was drastically different, yet SO fun! The first look's inspiration was floral so I thought of colorful tropical colors that complimented her headpiece. I used my NYX glitter liner in Green and my Dose of Colors Matte Lipstick in Berry Me. You cant see it in the photo below, but the yellow color fades into an orange color and then that color fades into a magenta. i LOVED it!
The second inspiration was "Ice Queen" themed. I automatically thought of ice and glitter (naturally). I couldn't find white false lashes so i custom made lashes for this look. I took a white feather from the craft store, cut it up and applied the feather pieces to a pair of NYX lashes. I painted the lashes white using my Makeup Forever Flash Palette. Afterwards, I took my MAC glitter in 'Reflects Gold' and threw as much glitter on the lashes as humanly possible. And Voila!
The ice's queen's head dress was intricate and beautiful, so I took a lot of white and silver from my MUFE Flash Palette and covered her hair and face with that frosted color. Because her dress exposed her clavicle and arms, I decided to fade the "frost" from her forehead to her chin and incorporate an ombre red lip. I used Dose of Colors: Black Rose and Merlot for the faded effect and it pulled the look together quite nicely. I also threw in rhinestones for dramatic effect (because secretly, I wish I was Lisa Frank and I never had a be-dazzler when I was a child).
All in all this was the most fun I've had on a look and I'm honored to be a part of the making, of such a FUN event!
