Let all Oz be agreed, I'm WICKED through and through!
I was going to wait until the beginning of October to start posting Halloween looks but I could wait no longer! I thought I'd start out with Elphaba as I've been listening to the Wicked soundtrack all day (what can I say, I have a serious love of all things Idina Menzel). I think this has to be my favourite look I've ever done!
I thought I'd go for the makeup that's seen more in the second act where she has more of a heavy contoured look. Watching lots of backstage broadway videos on youtube helped a lot! One thing I did change was the lip, it's a green lip on stage however I added a twist with the red lip which is seen on all of the promotional images for the show;
(only image taken with flash - the green makes my eyes look really light!)
How I greenified myself:
For the green skin I mixed Barry M Dazzle Dust in Emerald with 6 pumps of foundation (as I knew I would be covering my neck, chest and tops of shoulders and arms). Though the pigment was sparkly when mixed with the foundation it became matte, a little iridescence was apparent on the skin.
I then set the foundation using mixed matte green shadows from my ebay 120 palette to alter the colour a little (it ran a little blue toned, I wanted more of a warmer deeper green). To add dimension I heavily contoured my cheekbones, nose, jawline and collar bones with black shadow.
For highlighted areas of the face (cheekbones, nose, forhead and chin I applied a bright chartreuse green shadow (120 palette). After all this was done I powdered my face using Milani translucent powder to remove any shimmer.
Products Used for rest of look:
Milani Domino Quad - slightly frosted white shadow for browbone, lid and inner corner.
Ebay 120 palette - matte black for crease and under eye, also used applied wet for brows.
MAC Penultimate Liner - Rapidblack - for winged liner
Benefit Eye Bright - Waterline
Barry M Liner in Red
No7 Lipstick in Cherry
MAC Lady Danger lipstick
Black shadow applied with angled brush and blended around edges of mouth.
And that's it! I highly suggest everyone turns themselves green at least one time in their life, it's so strange looking at yourself! ;)
