The flyest bitch tonight

M - Inspired by the evil queen from Snow White, this look combines drag with fantasy.  The Evil Queen is one of the very few villains with no name, and is known simply as the 'Queen' or 'Evil Queen'.  Although adaptations of this brothers Grimm story give her a name, for example Ravenna in Snow White and the Huntsmen, she never really has a name.  I absolutely adore the way Disney captured/created her in the 1937 film Snow White and I think both styling and Charlize Theron took the Evil Queen to a level she deserves in Snow White and the Huntsmen.  My thought process behind this look was to create a crown out of shards of the magic mirror, and my main vision was to use black liquid to represent the Evil Queens poisonous soul.  I used a combination of black nail polish and dark green/purple eye shadow dust from Barry M.  Liquid Latex was my chosen medium and I learnt a valuable lesson of shaving before using this, as the liquid binds to any hairs it comes into contact with, not matter how small.  This was my first shoot of Vanity Nightmare 2.0 and it will always be a favourite of mine because of that.

N - I actually prefer the colours of the preview from the final look here and I probably should have reminded myself of how I could have changed it.  Throughout teaching, tutors have always told me it's bad to start on a negative, and I really think that is purely up to individual choice.  What I do believe is that it's incredibly important to see your mistakes, or where you can improve, and acknowledge these issues.  Learning new tips and tricks is always exciting for me and I hope as always you can take something away from the shoots I create.  For this look I used a combination of ideas and methods of apply makeup.  I practically finger painted my torso and I loved how I would be creating happy mistakes by using a method that you wouldn't be able to achieve with makeup brushes.
