And that’s it, the last Zodiac in my series. Since it’s my sign I wanted to save Taurus for last, and while it’s not as flashy as some of my other looks, I don’t think Taurus’s are particularly flashy. We like shiny things, which is why I went for the layered headdress and gold patterns on my shoulders, but when in comes to how we are we’re quite minimal I think. So I kept the makeup on my face simple.
I wanted this look to reflect spring since Taurus is a May zodiac
The shoulder patterns took a while to do but they’re very easy to make. If you can get a brown/chocolate face mask and use that at the base for the pattern. Once the face mask dried I added a metallic face paint to it and stuck down gold leaf to parts of it to add that magpie quality most Taurus’s have and to also represent spring.
As for the lashes, I made those a long time ago (link to the blog post here). They were originally for a photo shoot I was working on but in the end they were not used so I kept them just incase I wanted to do a nature/dryad look. I also did a tutorial on the false nails a few years ago here and if you haven’t seen all the Zodiac looks I’ve made a playlist for all of them here.
I got my (fake) septum piercing here
Now I just need to decide what series I need to do next! I’m going to wait till after Halloween before I decide on a new series. I have a lot of looks and props planned for Halloween so I need to wait till I’ll have the time to plan a new series, plan out the looks and make the intros, but I know for sure I want to start off with a small three or four part series before I do anything this big again.
I do have a chess based series I really want to do at some point, but I think I’ll wait till after Christmas before I do that one. At the moment the Fates, the four elements or the four seasons are at the top of my list. Any preferences?
