Once I finished the Witch from Into the Woods I thought how fun it would be to do a whole series of them. So here’s the second in the series, Little Red Riding Hood. She doesn’t have any other name in the musical, she’s only ever known as Little Red Riding Hood, (so long to type out…). During the first act she’s very naive and innocent, until she’s eaten by the wolf. Once she’s freed she decides that just because she has a ‘cloak and hood’ she will not be protected, she still has to be on her guard. This is her main development for Act One. In the second act, she’s a bit more morbid, she has a knife and dares Jack to bring back a harp that ‘makes beautiful sounds without having to touch it.’ This then brings about the Giant coming down into their world and creates the issues of Act Two. By the end she doesn’t have a Grandma or Mother left and has to learn to live on her own, well with the other main characters.

That was a huge chunk of exposition, but mainly Little Red has basic stage makeup, with nothing really standing out except for the fact that she’s young. I had to add something to it, so I gave her some red liner.

So I lied… I originally began this look fully intending to do some face charts for Oklahoma. Then once I got my foundation on and tried my new concealer, I was looking through my inspiration folder and saw this one picture and I wanted to recreate it. So once I did I remembered I had a lot of my grandmothers jewelry and I wanted to add some to the look so then it became this weird hybrid that I am calling Ice Princess. I hope you enjoy it! Side Note: when I was coming up for a look for my Citizen of Panem look, I googled Kabuki makeup since that’s where the makeup artist drew inspiration from. That’s how I found this photo.

*crickets*…Where have I been? Well let me tell you this month is going to be a crazy one. We have some events in the next couple of weeks and then for the 2nd and 3rd weekends in May I will be working on….wait for it…Oklahoma! Gah! Well ok so not as big as a Broadway production, but still important! So we have 3 different casts (o.o) and that totals 115 people. My mom will be doing hair and I will be doing makeup, but at least we won’t have to work on all 115 on the same night. So what does this mean? Well my Fever Series series will have to be put on hold and I will be posting more looks from Oklahoma so look forward to stage makeup and semi-normal looks!
But this post is none of those things…this is a mini haul from Target! Some random things but all things I’ve kinda wanted for some time! Enjoy!

So the time has come,,,new series time! Yay! So I tried to think for a good few days about what to do next and what would make sense. So since I’ve been on a book trend recently I decided to go with The Fever Series written by Karen Marie Moning. You can find a synopsis here, as I mentioned earlier that I really fail at trying to give a brief explanation without giving the entire story away, lol. So this first look is solely based on the cover of the first book, Darkfever . I pulled from the teal and black for my eye look, then the pink dress Mac is wearing on the cover for my lips. I’m really excited for this series as there are many characters to be inspired by! Please enjoy!

Where on Earth have I been? Well this past week I’ve not been feeling the best so updates/looks have pretty much stopped. However this past Saturday (almost a week ago!) I had a photo shoot with my aunt. Yup, a full fledge makeup, outfit, location photo shoot! So I really wanted to portray a Citizen of the Capitol from The Hunger Games, but I wanted to go a tad more extreme then just makeup. So after trying to do this for weeks, I finally got a date planned and a look planned! I’m so excited to finally post these photos and share with everyone out there. Now this look started out as a random citizen, but once we started shooting we kept giving my aunt Effie references so this became a neo-Effie look. Had I known that when I started I would have tried to make her makeup look more like her at some point. So Enjoy!

Neo-Effie or What Happens When You Have an Amazing Family Who Puts Up With Me and My Crazy Antics!

    • Model-My aunt, Dayna
