Game to Glam!


If you didn’t already know, I have started a makeup series on my Twitch channel where I take video game characters and turn their color palette into a glam look that you can actually wear outside. I guess its my intro into face painting, but we will get into that later! I started with the Overwatch game by Blizzard and have completed a few looks already. I usually post a poll on my twitter account so everyone can vote on what they want to see next. Next up will be Sombra and I am super excited about it! Some of the items have a link to a VOD but they don’t stay up forever, so watch while you can!

The first look we have is the most recent look I did. Its inspired by Junkrat. For the eyes I used the shade Dagger from the Kat Von D Pastel Goth palette, Burnt orange and Realgar from the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette and The shades, Bright Yellow, Dark Golden Olive and Kiwi Green from Coastal Scents. I topped that with NYX Vivid Brights eyeliner in Halo and Colour Pop lippie stick in Frenchie. For the final touches I added House of Lashes Iconic and Too faced Melted Matte on the lips in Lady Balls. You can watch the VOD of the live stream here

Next up we have Widowmaker. For the eyes I used the shades Baby Pink, Deep grape, Neon Bright Pink and Lavender by Coastal Scents. For the dots I used NYX Vivid Brights in Violet and Too Faced Melted Matte in Lady Balls. I finished the look with House of Lashes Iconic and the lips are NYX Liquid Suede in Run The World. You can see the VOD of the live stream here


Lucio!!! This is my favorite character from Overwatch and I had a ton of fun creating this look. For the eyes I used Shamrock Green, Teal Green and Bright Yellow from Coastal Scents. I lined the eyes with NYX Vivid Brights in Sapphire and then did the sound waves in NYX Vivid Brights in Halo. I finished up the eyes with House of Lashes Iconic and the lips is actually the same NYX Vivid Brights liner in Sapphire. I do NOT recommend using this on your lips for a going out look. It gets super dry and actually make my lips very dry for a few days afterwards.


Finally we have Tracer. The eyes I used the shades Bright Tangerine, Light Tangerine and bright yellow from Coastal Scents. I winged the liner with NYX Liquid Suede in Little Denim Dress and finished the eyes with House of Lashes Iconic (can you tell what my favorite lashes are yet? lol) The lips are done in NYX Liquid Suede in Little Denim Dress and added some white liquid lipstick to make an ombre effect.

Let me know if you guys would like to see more of these looks and I hop you enjoy!


Quick update and Photoshoot news!

Good morning everyone! I just wanted to do a quick update for you all. At the end of January I did a photoshoot that featured a few looks. I have updated my portfolio to reflect some of the final edited images but I wanted to do a blog post as well. I still have a ton to edit but these are some of my favorites. I am also looking for a new model to do a shoot with during PAX East in Boston March 10-12. Let me know if you are interested as my time is limited and may only have time for one shoot. With that being said, I hope you enjoy some of these pics.
