The Zodiacs: Aquarius

The Water Carrier

As of uploading this look I am officially half way though my Zodiacs series. For most of these looks I’ve tried to incorporate the Zodiac symbol into the makeup looks, but for this one I wanted to focus more on the element of water than the symbol.

I painted the jug months ago, and now that I’ve filmed the tutorial it should be quite a beautiful flower jug

The funny thing is that I got the wig for a witch look originally, but I thought  it worked absolutely perfectly for this look when I tried it. I’m tempted to use it again for Sagittarius since I’m going for a bit of a celtic warrior theme. But I might stick to my original idea of a high braided ponytail.

Making the water pour out of the jug was easy. Just grab some sellotape, some cling film, and tape one end to the bottom of the jug while the rest hangs out. If you were going for a costume version of this look you would want to wear a toga and have the end of the cling film wrapped around your waist, then carry the jug on your shoulder. Of course if you wanted to be really elaborate you could have sings with clear beads hanging down from it too.

I hope you like the look :)

Stars Fly Music Video Makeup

Klaire Makeup

If you didn’t already know my band Malumi released our new single Stars fly this week, we’ve been working on our new (and first) album this year, and Stars Fly is our first single release from what will be the Monsters and Fireflies album.

You can see the music video here

If you’ve been following our vlogs then you’ve seen snippets of this song there, we will be releasing 3 singles before the full album is released in April next year. This song, When the Lion Comes (September release), Dark Queen (January release) and then, the song the album is named after, Monsters and Fireflies in April along with the album.

Alices Makeup:

I wanted Alice’s makeup to do two things, keep the skin looking as fresh and natural as possible, but also make her eye makeup a little weird and quirky without being heavy. I also didn’t want anything to clash with Alice’s amazing red hair, so I went for a little bit of green on the outer corners of her eyes, a little finely milled cosmetic glitter, gold eyeliner and some mascara.

Sara’s Makeup:

You know I have a thing for rhinestones, well Sara has a thing for glitter. I added the glitter onto Sara’s lashes before I applied them so I didn’t have too much of a problem with fall out. I didn’t add anything to Sara’s lips except for a little lip balm. With her pink hair, the flower background and the glitter lashes I felt like anything else would have been too much.

My Makeup:

And then I said, let there be rhinestones! Of course I had to have a few rhinestones is this, heck even when I’m going out in real life I still wear a rhinestone or two with my winged eyeliner.

Annnnd that should be all the makeup tutorials! Next week I’ll be uploading my regular videos but if you haven’t seen the music video or been following our vlogs on the Malumi channel you can see them here.

I hope you like the videos :)

The Zodiacs: Aries

Aires Zodiacs Makeup

Yes, I made another pair of horns. I think by this time next week, after I’ve uploaded the tutorial for this on my second channel, I’ll had done three different tutorials on how to make horns. This one has to be my strangest one yet though, I use old shopping bags and garden wire, yes, it’s an odd combination of materials, but you have to admit they look pretty awesome!

This weeks Zodiac was Aries

With this whole zodiac series I didn’t want to limit myself to the colours and personalities which are usually attributed to the various zodiacs. There is so much history and mythology with each Zodiac and I wanted that to be a source of inspiration too. Some of them will be more inspired by the animal assigned to the zodiac and others will be inspired more by the history and mythology behind it.

Fire is the element usually attributed to Aires and the Golden Ram is where the symbol of the horns comes from for this star sign, so that is what I decided to use as the main inspiration for this look.

I would like to incorporate the symbol of each Zodiac into the eye makeup

I had been half tempted to go for more of a flame-like pattern around the eyes, a little like my Fire Makeup look I did a while ago, but in the end I decided to stick to my idea of working the symbol of each zodiac into the eye makeup a little and keep everything else around it reasonably simple.

The Ram

So this is the next look in my Zodiac’s series! I’m not sure which one I’ll be doing next, in theory Sagittarius since all the props are made for that, but I also have all the props for my Real Life Disney: Ariel look made as well, and that tutorial involves a webbed hand makeup tutorial. So I’m not sure, we’ll have to wait and see :)

I hope you like the tutorial! :D

Real Life Disney: Cruella de Vil

Cruella de Vil 101 Dalmations

I just had to make a few changes to this version of Cruella for my next addition to the Real Life Disney series. Apart from the fact that nothing is going to give me the kind of cheekbones Cruella sports in the cartoon, except for Malificent style prosthetics, I personally imagined Cruella with a little more of a 1920’s look.

And yes, that is a makeup brush in my hand. I had to improvise

I wanted to mix the films and the book up a little by doing the pictures so that they could have been of a socialite (the book) or fashion editor (the film). Originally I had planned to go completely black and white for the photography, since the look I’m going for is a little 1920’s. But I also wanted people to see the trademark red lipstick so, in the end not all of them were black and white, or at least not completely.

The lips aren’t strictly speaking very 1920’s, if they were they would have been more rounded and less arched. But I wanted to get across that harsh look, and outline the lips with a colour which was waaay to light and blatantly fake.  She’s a villain, so I didn’t want to the makeup to be too perfect, and she’s a little crazy, so all the more reason to do a makeup faux pas.

Which villain would you like to see next?
