Just scraping it in this week with a Sci-Fi look - I love doing these wild looks but they do take a lot of time! I decided to go with the standard Star Trek/ Doctor Who staple of creating a "humanoid alien with something weird going on around the forehead"...
I also couldn't resist taking the opportunity to show off my new horns from The Fable Workshop - these are amazing, light and easy to wear and were not expensive at all. Their customer service is second to none, and I think this is going to be the first of many purchases I make from them.
I took some step by step pictures so you could see how it all came together:
First primer and foundation, and then Kryolan thin latex to build up the layers on the forehead and cheeks.
After that, a layer of shimmery green opalescent pigment - I used Giorgio Armani "Eyes to Kill" pigment. This gave my skin an unearthly greenish cast but was light enough not to require a full cover up - my skintone looks "off" but it doesn't require the full mask of makeup a bolder base colour would have.
Then, more colours - a bright blue pigment from Makeup For Ever and Illamasqua pigment in Berber, which is hands down the best red pigment around I think..
After that, some highlighting and detailing with my Gosh Liquid Eyeliner.
Some more picspam so you can see it from all angles:
