Had lots of fun filming this one.. my battery for camera was dying, I had to recharge it like 3 times in between process to keep going 😀 Always remember to recharge your batteries.. (:
I used mostly Kryolan aqua colors, also soft cream color for black parts, which were still a bit smudgy looking after applying the black aqua color. For shimmer I used INGLOTs white loose eyeshadow in #75. Pink glitter is glitter by Nail Selection used for glitter tattoos, amazing stuff, it sparkles as electricity under sunlight/stage light.
The hair piece was supposed to be a part of my bodyart exam work, it turned out well, but the bodyart not so, need to re-do it.
I literary edited this the whole night.. finally got to instal in my lappy some video editing software, had already forgotten how to use it since my last lappy broke down in fall.
This is how it all went down in this years February where I won 1st place for bodyart in brush/sponge category. Theme was “Illusion”. My idea about my character was transparency:cosmos/human/nature.
Products I used:
eyes : Malu Milz eyeshadow base; NYX white jumbo pencil, Malu Milz black pencil; JUST makeup palette colors violet, ultra violet and pink, white; Malu Milz mascara.
face : Giordani foundation in porcelain, Malu Milz fixing powder.
Contouring : creme palette, Bronzer by Oriflame, MicaBella shimmer in Sunset.
Lips: Stage line lip pencil, Makeup Forever Mat lip color in #4, Catrice lip color in fuschia.
To create this look, start by putting on foundation and liquid contouring, fix it with transparent powder. Draw flowers with pencil, extend and retouch the lines with synthetic brush. Put on white pencil or creme/supra on places where you will put white or your brightest eyeshadows. Put on black smudged pencil your darkest eyeshadow. Then blend in pink and white eyeshadows. Make the flower more dramatic by using cake eyeliner in the darkest places, blend in well with violet eyeshadow. Put white shimmer on the white eyeshadow, to bring out the flower petals even more. Put around the flower to make it dimensional some pink eyeshadow or blush, finish it with putting pink, gold or white shimmer on your cheeks under the flower drawing. Detail flower petals with black eyeliner, white eyeliner and some crystals.
Attach false eyelashes.
Put on some more bronzer if needed right under your cheekbones, under the flower.
Put on your favourite lipstick and you’re done!
Haven’t been updating lately, because I was again caught up in preparation for two contests, one of them was a bodyart contest, the other one a styling, but for that one I don’t have any pictures yet to show.
So here goes the bodyart pictures…
(got 3rd place, the theme was “seasons”)
Modeled by Māra Indriksone, Photos by Māris Greidāns, all bodyart, hair, props by me, Anda Masque.
Using only Kryolan colors for large areas, small details (lines and dots) are done with Zenith face paints, which are more like liners in a cup.
So.. this has to get done! (part 2) 😀
Part 1 was winning in Nevskie Berega, which I did with the help of my model and mentors, family and friends.
This time this has to involve many more people, because I need some funding for this project to actually be done.
Here what happens.. if you are interested in sponsoring an art project video about body art as art on human body as living canvas you can visit this indiegogo (a crowdfunding website) campaign page here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-body-art-project/x/5370653
If you cannot sponsor, but you are totally interested in the end result, please share the link above. All help is very appreciated! (:
Bodyart practice for my next full work.
I used all kryolan products: Kryolan Aqua colors, Kryolan liquid makeup, Kryolan airbrush makeup.
I went for it..and I got it!
First place at body art brush/sponge category for theme “Illusion” in the end of February in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Almost all colors user are Kryolan AQUA colors in different shades, from pallets and individual colors. Detailing in “cosmos” is done with Korean “Zenith” face paints, because they create perfect line work.
