The Wicked One

One of my on going childhood dream was to play a villain in a movie. I honestly think this was because I grow up in a time where there were great female villians like Ursula from The Little Mermaid, Michelle Pfeiffer as Cat Woman, Cruella Deville, Annie Wilkes played by Kathy Bates, and let us not forget Mama Fratelli from the Goonies. Oh yes those were the memorable characters. Besides Storm from X-men, I cant think of many hero characters that I was infatuated with at all. What does that say about me? IM A BAD ASS OF COURSE!!! So in this photo shot i was going for a villain look that was dark and sexy. I started with the hair. This hair is very SideShow Bob from the Simpsons(not exactly a female villain but close since I always thought he was gay). I perm rodded a chunky twist out on my natural hair and unraveled the twists and voila! a witchy Medusa like coif. For the skin i used CK one foundation in 300 Sand in the middle of the face and 500 Tan on the outer perimeter. As a contour, I use a Tarte's Bronzing Leg Stick in Glam Gams. It is a bronzer but it have a creepy green tone to it that remind me of sewage or smog. This gave my face definition and that green witchy tint. No blush. Who needs a rosy glow when youre evil? For the eye, I use the Naturaleyes Eye Shadow Palette from Stila use the color Ebony , Luster, and Sunset to create a winged out smokey eye. I also added a little bit of NYX Roll On Shimmer in Platinum to the inner corner of my eye to add a devious sparkle. I finished the eyes off by minimally define my bleached brows with CK One Foxy Redhead brow liner. I cover my lips with Napoleon's The One Concealer followed by Ruby Kisses's Ginger Glaze Super Gloss which creates a subtle nude lip but with sneakily enticing shine. This look says "You might as well kiss me now before you turn to stone" and I love it. I hope you do too.

Donna Summer Inspired Look

So upon learning about Donna Summer's death, I just knew that I had to do a photo inspired by her. So I ran to my closet in hopes to find something that looked like it would have came from the Queen of the Disco's era. To no avail, I could not find anything. Then all of a sudden , when I waas about to just give up. I saw this shiny Oscar de la Renta blazer. It just seem like the perfect fit. I threw it on over a lovely very sexy Victoria secret push up, slapped on some big hair and on to the face. On my eyes I used the Stila natural eyes palette. I bought this palette when I went to Sephora to get the Urban Decay Naked palette but of course they were sold out. This was great alternative. I liner my eyes with Sephora liquid liner and Nyx eye pencil in White. On my cheeks are two product i love: NARS's Super Orgasm and Milani's Baked bronzer in Glow. They lips i wante dto be bold but soft. I paired two beautiful lip colors: Revlon's Matte Lipstick in Story Pink with a layer of MAC's Sheen Supreme lip color in Gotta Dash(this is my new staple color) I hope you love this looks as much as i did making it happen RIP Donna Summer.
