Order of the A.I.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - I wanted to revisit some makeup techniques with this look and I also really wanted to create a fire like makeup look.  I created the body paint using a mixture of snazaroo makeup and Wonder Woman makeup from MAC.  This was mixed with a mixing medium to turn the powder into a liquid that I could work with.  From creating these images I've noticed that my nose isn't straight and I know it was due to the fact I broke the cartilage in my nose in primary school.  The downside is a bent nose but I do get to freak out people when I move my nose and they can hear a crunching noise, - silver linings guys!  Because of this I created it perfectly symmetrical on my nose and then when I looked in the mirror it was completely off.  It means that in all my makeup looks I have to create an illusion that my nose is straight and I didn't completely pull it off here! Ah well!  The nails were created using a mixture of OPI, Barry M, Claires glitter and sweets!

A.I. - I get very inspired by music videos and I know this was inspired by something out there but I can't put my finger on it.  Painting myself black that is, not the whole robot spin which hopefully its unique??  Christina and also the Sugababes always inspired me for makeup looks and these have always stuck out for me.  I admire makeup looks now in different ways and I guess that's due to me changing as a person.  This makeup look was a nightmare to wash off.  I used two blacks and one literally stains your skin and doesn't come off no matter how much soap and water you use.  I ended up looking like someone from the coal mines for 5 days after… At least I didn't have to leave my house! Although it did stop me from doing other makeup looks which was a little annoying...
