I often save images that inspire me and then obsess about them for a while! I had always wanted to try some Mark Traynor Invisitapes, as these elongate the eye and have been a theatrical beauty secret for yonks! Plus drag queens wear them and I do love a good drag make-up.
The tapes you attach either side of your face (and/or neck) and it gives you a facelift! 😳
I used LOADS of makeup and I felt like Lily Savage but it was great! Now before you go judging me, you know I am one to promote natural beauty and make-up. This was done purely for fun and for the love of make-up and art!
Absolutely no re-touching here or Face Tune. The make-up took me about 3 hours to complete, but I loved doing it! (a nightmare to remove though! it probably took about 3 hours to get rid of it all!)
I love applying the basics of Art here using light, medium and dark to shade or highlight. I also used white on the lips to create a shine effect, (another tip stolen from Hollywood/drag!)
I was chuffed when James Molloy himself commented on my post on Instagram!...
