Maleficent Alien

Link to: Alien (1979) 

Alien - I think everyone gets a little scared when starting something.  It's like writing or drawing on a blank page and that empty void can create a creative barrier.  For my first makeup look I decided to get messy and go in deep with this Alien inspired look.  I took more time body painting than I've ever done before and I used other elements such as Clairol Shimmer Lights - a toning shampoo for blonde/silver hair.  I created uncomforatble angles with my body and put my mind and soul into this look.  It was something fun and I always love creating an alien inspired look.  The nails are a mixture of OPI and I wanted to keep them simple, with a flash of bright colour.

Maleficent - I was disappointed at how this makeup look turned out.  I like the angles I created but the look didn't work in the way I wanted it to.  I've kept this in my series so it's a permenant reminder for me to reach higher levels and try harder to create something great.  Normally I throw aside makeup looks which don't work and no-one sees them, and it also means I forget them.  I've been on a mental roller coaster this year and it's really tested me in ways i've never had to deal with before.  I cannot wait for this film to be released in a few months and I cannot think of a better actress to play her.
