Hey True Believers!
So today, I bring you a look based off of Wolfsbane from her days in X-Factor (2nd team). She’s a mutant that turns into a wolf or wolf hybrids, Scottish, and very religious (more so when she was younger than she is now). There was a period where she was stuck in her half human, half wolf form and I really liked the way she looked (as it was the only time she could have long hair, otherwise, her hair doesn’t grow and stays pretty short/cropped to her head).
The wonderful people at Illamasqua were kind enough to send me some products to try out and review (the review will be in a separate post to keep this post moderately short) and I knew I wanted to do a Wolfsbane inspired look out of them. So this look consists mainly of the 7 products that were sent to me and the help of a few others that were bought and purchased with my own money with the exception of the lashes which were given to me by Sugarpill.
Around this time, my friend Sara Richard, who is an amazingly talented and wonderful artist/illustrator, contacted me about doing a collaboration. So I figured I’d combine the two into one post! She took the makeup I did on myself, and applied it to an illustration of Wolfsbane! It’s just simply gorgeous! We’ve decided we will DEFINITELY be doing more of these collaborations as this one came out so gorgeous! Her part of the collaboration is after my makeup photos!
(Note: After I had taken the initial close up eye photos, I decided to add some of Sugarpill’s Flamepoint to the brow to make them more auburn. So that is why the full face photos eyebrow color differs 🙂 Also, my makeup on this blog are not based on the drawings of the characters. The drawings are a point of reference for folks who are unfamiliar with the characters. I base ALL my looks off of the character personality, powers, physical apperance, and costume (or some combination of the afore mentioned) )
I hope you all enjoy!
