Makeup and Watercolour

Next weekend, I'm 100% getting a new tackle-box for my SFX makeup. It's WAY too packed to close safely anymore. I'll be going to IMATS in Toronto on Sunday with around $200 to spend - hopefully on some Skin Illustrator palates, and maybe a matte colour palate. I forgot what else I wanted to get, but maybe I'll figure it out when I get there. Shit, what am I gonna wear??

So I started practicing my SFX art again, and I got to try out some new supplies. I started with a quick-and-easy sickly-looking face, and the next one I tried out my new shit (siliglass and what I thought was scar putty).

For the first one (I did this a week or so ago), I had zero opportunities to shower for an embarrassingly long time, so I used my gross stringy hair to add character. I paled my face, darkened and pink'd my eyes and waterline, and made my lips look SO chapped. I don't know exactly what I was going for, but I like the turn-out. Kinda reminded me of Helena from Orphan Black.

Got my siliglass (silicone glass) in the mail yesterday, so I experimented with whatever else I had. I thought this stuff I had was nose-and-scar putty, but it turned out to be derma wax - way too sticky to work with properly, and didn't like taking makeup or a brush. I think I disguised the shit well enough, but it's still not as good as I'd hoped it would turn out. The siliglass was a bit awkward, too. It came in large chunks I had to cut down, but I couldn't make it too thin. Definitely looks like real glass, though :)

And here's a new watercolour I did last Tuesday at the Lovin' Cup. Suspiria!
