Berry Neutral

This makeup is neutral, but the lip color and berry blush gives it a bit of a pop. I eventually want this to turn into a costume look based on Neil Gaimons Sandman comics, the charactor Barbie specifically. I’m just mulling over the logistics of her makeup veil that she wears at the end of A Game of You.

Originally I’d hoped that placing a scrap of textured lace over my face, spraying with mixing medium or hair spray, adn then brushing a dark pigment overtop would work, but sadly no. I just looked like I had started bruised zombie makeup, because there were so many slopes to the skin that the lace couldn’t get close enough to block..  Which is fun too, but not the intended effect.  Who knows, maybe I’ll do it her way(I believe SHE used eyeliner and drew individual geometric lines), and try sketching in my own veil/lace, in Leatherette  That sounds like a PITA though.  We shall see.

Please excuse the horrifically ungroomed brows, and somewhat zitty face.  And I shot these in two different bathrooms, so the lighting is slightly different.  Ugh for 5 AM light.
