In this photo I used Ben Nye base make up. I was a darker base than I thought. I out lined my eyes with a brown eyeliner, or guyliner, just to draw attention to my eyes. I colored my lips using a color wheel. I have figured out that I rarely will have to color my eyebrows!
In this picture is Noelle Stinson. This was one of my favorites to do. I did an Elizabethan look. I used a white creme base bright red blush and I used a creme color for her lips, which I outlined with black to draw attention to them.
In this picture I started out doing glam drag, but I ended with campy drag. I had a lot of fun doing this. I used spirit gum to glue my eyebrows as close to my skin as possible. I then used Ben Nye scar wax to cover up the eyebrows and applied my base to make them disappear.I had to do my eyes a couple of times getting used to "draw" everything on. I painted in Mardi Gras colors as you may have noticed. The eye shadow is your typical dry eye shadow. But I used about 4 different yellows, and two different greens and blended them together. For my lips I outlined then, just like I did with the Elizabethan period. I then used really bright blush thinking of a clown, which is what let me to think campy. I believe that this creates a great character that could be developed for comedic shows, not to mention it is drag, which is the coolest form of make up ever!!

Joseph Dumford in "The Cupcake"
In this photo is Joseph Dumford. He was shooting his commercial for the Cannes Lions Mofilm Interenational festival. Again I used Ben Nye make up. I set up his base and then we powdered him. We then put a little red into his make up to bring a little color to him.
Punk Rock Fashion
I was influenced by a punk rock fashion look. Growing up in the 80's you could probably guess why! I took a mixture of KIZZ and Sting the wrestler and mixed it. I used a Ben Nye Creme base and then I used another type for the blue. It is a powder that you mix with water and paint on. You have a little more control this way, but it wouldn't work for everything.
In this picture I did some fantasy make up. I created a type of Dryad or tree nymph. The blue sun shape was inspired by the theory of the third eye. I did it in blue as rain would've been a type of "food" source. I have them conecting to the leaf veins which are don in green. I put down a regular base and then painted the make up on. This was the dry make up that you add water too. The green beard is done to resemble moss on trees. The long hair is nice and brown, which if costumed right it will look like a face coming out of a tree.
