Is it a drawing or is it make-up? That is the question I want people to ask when they see my Pop Art Inspired Make-up Series… I wanted to create an illusion!
After my amazing response for posting my first Pop Art look here is my second Pop Art Inspired Make-up Image from my ‘Pop Art Inspired Series’, I love this one as you can see the body painting that was created my Deborah Love on the neck and chest from Follies Face. There are more edited images from this series to come! I can’t wait to demo this at IMATS London on The Crownbrush stand.

Packed on the makeup today to coverup this nasty cold :/ I MUST get better before this weekend filled with prom apts and weddings.. No time to get sick for this busy girl! #sprkle_makeup #needtogetbetter
So glad to finally be filming these after weeks of making props and planning! I will be starting this series off with Lust, and for each tutorial I thought I’d put a little definition at the beginning of each tutorial, so it’s clear the character I’m trying to convey.
This weeks tutorial is Lust
The funny thing is that half the makeup I used was very appropriately named for this. Illamasqua’s ‘Throb” nail varnish, or the ‘Scandalous’ blush from Sleek.
And before I get people asking where I bought the lace ears, I already have a tutorial for them here. The rest of the outfit was pretty simple, lace bolero, feather boa, a black wig and then the longest fake nails you can get your hands on and paint them a bright red.
The concept for this is probably the simplest out of all the looks I’m going to do. Red is a colour that is associated with Lust quite a lot so it really was a no-brainer to use a lot of that colour. For all of these looks I’m going to have a different colour glow in the background, each colour representing a different sin. So red for Lust, gold/yellow for Greed exc.
Oh and before I forget…I’ve put all the full sized images of these up on my Deviant Art. A few people have been asking me to make my pictures available as prints, so for those of you who are interested I have made prints available for them on my Deviant Art :)
Hope you like the tutorial :)
