Seven Deadly Sins: Greed

When I was thinking of how to portray greed the first words that poped into my head was politicial and banker, hence the white shirt, blazer and hat.

With this look I really wanted to take more of a theatrical approach to the makeup

For the actual makeup I wanted to incorperate the traditional animal asossiation (toad) with more obvious things like gold, diamonds (rhinestones) pearls exc.

The lips is probably the part that a lot of people are going to think “why?”. But you know that expression “paying through the nose”? Which on a side note apparently comes from tax collectors who would slit your nose if you didn’t pay (lovely I know).

Paying through the nose? Or bleeding gold, oil and rhinestones?

I had find a way to show that without involving blood (I’m saving that for Wrath) and this is what I came up with.

Once I’ve finished this series I’m thinking of doing the exact same series except for masquerade masks on my second channel. Would be quite a fun project to do and would be great to have masks that could go along with these looks.

Hope you like the tutorial :)

    Woow, that is probably one of the coolest makeup pieces I’ve ever seen! The really sick looking stuff are real opposite to the gold and diamonds.. Awesome! And I also really think the lips are the coolest, it’s unusual and it really fits into the theme and the eyes.. Good job! Can’t wait for the next tutorials :)

    You didn’t put a tag for the “seven deadly sins” It would be much easier to find the posts :)

    That little smirk you did at 7:16 just clinched it for me. You look cruel, greedy, heartless, cunning, and beautifully evil all at once. How do you do it?!?! WHAT’S YOUR SECRET?!?!

    Amazing job, Klaire. I can’t WAIT to see what you come up with next!
