Here are some behind the scenes images of my Amphibian makeup look.
You can see a close up of the paper eyelashes I made, with the lace & crystals added on.
Also, the pieces I made for the head from foam paper. After cutting to shape I airbrushed all the pieces creating a gradient, then I glued all the crystals & beads on, added lace behind all the cut out sections, and finally I placed in some tacking pins at the edges to create spiked looking accents.
In the middle you can see the makeup after I applied all the pieces, before shooting. And on the left is a before & after of the model!

I’m demoing this mask makeup that I created for a photo-shoot a few months back, this week at a local makeup college. It’s so much fun doing this look, check it out and let me know if you would don this on Halloween or even to the cinema to watch a film such as The Avengers! I love it when people dare to go all out just for fun :D
Here is a quick look I created yesterday for a feather & latex shoot.
Blue gradient lips using a LimeCrime lipstick in the centre, and a Blue pout paint from Sleek around the outer edge of the lips.
For the eyes, it’s a simple look. I didn’t want anything to precise or neat, so I used a splayed out brush and dragged Black face paint up and out around the eyes. I made a stencil with tiny hole in and sprayed through it using my airbrush. I filled in the centre of the lids with the same Black face paint, and sprayed over it with my airbrush for a more opaque look. Then I added a hint of watery blue to the edges, using the same technique.
I placed some AB Flip Swarovski crystals at the corners just to spruce it up a bit. Feather lashes added to match the feathers in the outfit - Done!
Tree Frog Inspired makeup creation.
Martin Higgs often gives me challenges when it comes to makeup - this being one of them! So after receiving some tree frog images from Martin, I came up with this look!
I used some coloured pencils as the base of these bright colours. Then I layered brightly coloured eyeshadows and then finished off using my Dinair Airbrush over the top to create this look.

Raw image from the Fire & Ice shoot I did the makeup for.
As the hair was crimped and put up in a flame shape, I wanted to emphasise the “flames” by carrying the makeup up from the eyes, into the hair, mimicking the wave of a flame.
I used my Dinair airbrush to get a graduated colour.
