(Blink Blink) Good evening! When I created this character, I had no idea what I actually wanted it to be, other than I wanted it to make this noise (blink blink). When doing my bald cap today for whatever reason I decided that I was going to use a wig cap underneath.
.. did not like, do not recommend. I then decided that I wanted this character to have no eyebrows, so I covered them up using a WASHABLE glue stick. Also turns out that the back of my makeup brush doubles as a very good smoothing thing.
Actually surprising i’ve never done this in all the years i’ve had makeup brushes. I should probably actually mention that this is the handle of Madeyewlook brush. I had no idea that so many people had no idea that I have my own line of makeup brushes until I launched my body paints! .
..which by the way has been the most INCREDIBLE experience of my LIFE. I guess i’m not very good on the “self promo.” After i’ve covered my brows using concealer i’m then going to create a liquid latex brain.
You can get a mold for these brains at pretty much any party store, Halloween store, especially around Halloween time. I mixed together Graftobian’s liquid latex — like quite a bit of it — with the smidgen of pink eyeshadow to give it a more pinky tone, which I ended up not using a pinky tone anyways, but that’s besides the point.
You’ll just want to layer the mold with multiple layers of liquid latex. You can dab it in or you can brush it in, just make sure you let it dry in between layers. SIGNIFICANT amount of layers later, you’ll be able to peel it out.
Make sure you also powder it so it doesn’t stick to itself. It’s probably a lot of instructions for a whole lot of “I didn’t film that portion of the video,” but it’s not difficult, trust me, just time consuming.
I’m then using a little bit of Pros-Aid on a Q-Tip. You can also use Spirit Gum. (My skin tends to hate Spirit Gum) (I’m then) applying it where I want the brain to be stuck down. I probably applied a little bit of an excessive amount, you probably do NOT need that much — realistically mainly just the edges.
I also applied some more Pros-Aid around the edge of the brain and also onto where it’s going to be a little bit underneath the brain as well. Using Graftobian Modeling Wax, which is my favorite and absolutely amazing, and a little bit of makeup remover on my fingertips, I just made little snakes and stuck it down onto the brain.
You mainly want it to be more on the brain than actually on your skin because you’re gonna be blending that down onto your skin — just trust me it makes it a little bit easier in the end to stick it more on the brain than on your face.
Once you have it all initially stuck down, you can use a little bit of makeup remover on your fingertips and just smooth out the edges, blending it down onto your face or side of your head. I’m also using the back of a Madeyewlook makeup brush to smooth down the edge of the top of where the brain and the head kind of disconnect or are “opened” using Graftobian’s Flexible Wax Sealer — which I could not open for the life of me.
Pro tip — do NOT let it dry inside the cap because you won’t be able to open it later. This product is great for sealing wax but also is very strong so PLEASE make sure you have your windows open when you use it.
I probably couldn’t open the wax sealer because I have half a brain (BUH-DUM-TIS). I’m now applying foundation using the Madeyewlook Fluffy Foundation brush just… everywhere. Mainly I just think it’s a good base for body paint.
Advertising aside though, THANK YOU guys so so so much for such an incredible successful launch of my body paints! I’m going to be using the color “Yeti.” in the Madeyewlook body paint. The body paint release is literally a dream come true, a life dream come true.
Some people want cars, some people want big houses, you know I just wanted a body paint line, and to be able to launch this product has made October… has just made my whole year. I can’t describe it to you, I really can’t.
It has been the most amazing time of my life. Somehow for the third time on the internet, I have managed to make myself look like an egg. Go ahead and prime your eyes. At this point I didn’t really know particularly what I wanted to do, all I knew when making this look is I wanted for this character to make the blinking noise.
Ultimately I decided that I was gonna lay down some white eyeshadow, and then some black eyeshadow on top of that. Initially it was pretty messy, so I went back in again with white eyeshadow and just blended everything.
It needed assistance. It needed to be blended very badly. I then went ahead and lined my eyes, doing my normal cat eye shape. The pencil broke. I continued lining my eyes as normal. I also knew that I wanted some sort of design on this, I didn’t want it to just be pure white.
I’ve done a pure white kind of look like this before, which I love black and white looks, but a lot of people gave me a whole lot of compliments on this look from the body paint launch so I wanted to overall channel that type of vibe with like this drippy sort of.
.. runny maybe “Billie Eilish” kind of music video… sort of effect kind of going on. All the black body paint in this video is the Madeyewlook body paint in the color “Ink.” Going into the Madeyewlook body paints in the color ‘Vampire,” which if you get a “Halloween Pack” by the way (which is the color “Oak, ” “Vampire,” and “Bone Tone) just know that before you wet “Vampire” and “Oak,” they’re VERY easy to mix up — but once you wet them, one is dark red and one is dark brown.
That’s just a little bit of a heads up. Anyways, i’m using the color “Vampire” to color my brain in. Then, going on the very bottom with “Vampire” still in my makeup brush, and mixing in “Ink” along the bottom edge of the brain and then just kind of lightly painting it in.
As I go up I wanted the darkest part of the brain to be at the bottom Going in using only the color “Ink,” and then applying it right to the edge of where my head splits before my brain is uncovered I also added a little bit of a drip because I felt like it needed to kind of tie in a smidgen.
I thought that looked nice, decided that I was going to add another one to the other side and then I thought to myself, “what does this look need?” FOR SURE eyelashes. Eyelashes are definitely going to make the “blink blink perfect.
” I made them out of paper! They’re very addicting to blink once you start blinking you may never stop blinking — it may never end — you may do this for the rest of your life — you may do this till the end of time — you may never be able to stop — it is a complete possibility.
.. do this look at your own risk. Once you’re done messing around though and you decide “Ah, you know maybe I need to curl them a little bit more,” then you can go ahead and just do that. I also decided that I wanted my eyelids to be a little bit darker, so I added liner to the top of my lids.
I also didn’t want to make paper lashes for my bottom lashes, so I just drew on my two lashes and it looks exactly the same. (lol.) ANNNND here we start on our lip adventure. I’m looking at this, i’m like, “Does this need lips? I don’t know, do I need black lips?” Thanks, I hate it.
So if by chance you DO mess up and you’re going to take off your body paint and reapply it, you can take it off using water and a rag but when you reapply your body paint if you put foundation underneath it, if you put primer underneath it, make sure you prime or put foundation on that spot AGAIN.
I then thought to myself, “Well maybe i could do a little drip kind of coming out of my lip,” and as i’m painting it — as i’m watching it RIGHT NOW, i’m like no this does not look good. This — this looks this reminds me of?? This kind of looks a little bit.
.? This does not? This looks kind of a little bit like…? Not something that I was thinking that it was going to be looking like…??? You ever have it where you pull the hair out of your drain? On to everyone’s FAVORITE part.
THIS is Graftobian’s blood gel. As you guys can see, it’s nice and thick it’s pretty much like jelly. To jelly my brain, I just lightly scraped it on over my brain. I also kept in mind that I did want more blood around the edge and not as much blood around the rest of my brain, also keeping in mind that over time this will drip down so you don’t want to have like an excessive amount on it.
Blood gel is my favorite “blood” to use because it is thicker, and I feel like it’s easier to work with and get it to sit where you want it to sit — at least initially. And so now you know what I think of when i hear the “blinking noise.
