Fantasy Bald Cap!

When I think of the word fantasy I think of beautiful flying creatures such as butterflies. So I immediately knew I wanted to do a look with butterflies. I was inspired by the idea of butterflies being connected to a loved one who has passed on. To make it a happy fantasy look I added a lot of colour.

Step by step

I started off by flattening the hair with water and hair gel and a comb.
I tied the hair back into a low ponytail.
I then added powder into the bald cap to check for any folds and rips.
I then placed the bald cap over the head and cut around the areas I didn’t need.
I stuck down the bald cap with spirit gum.
I then smoothed out the edges with acetone on a cotton bud.
I the colour corrected the hair with a purple/ brown colour from the supracolours.
I then powdered the the colour.
I then used my clown white all over the head,face and neck.
I set everywhere with baby powder.
I then started with my yellow eyeshadow.
I place this in the centre of the forehead, inner eyelids, under the chin and cheeks.
I then went in with the orange on the outer lids and cheeks for contour and also collar bones.
I then went in with dark pink and used it on either side of the head, middle of head and collar bones.
Then I used blue on sides of the head and neck.
I then applied gel liner 77 to the eyelids and winged it a tiny bit.
I then used sultry lashes on the bottom lid using duo glue to stick down.
Using the Inglot highlighter (01) I used this on the collar bones to make them glow.
I then used aquacolours to make splashes on the head and collar bone.
I used the colours blue, yellow and red.
I stuck down the butterflies with spirit gum.
One butterfly is held in the mouth by the model.

The finished look!

The finished look!

Out of all my looks this is my favourite. Strangely enough it was a look I was slightly unprepared for but turned out as my best look. The splashes of colour was a last minute decision but I’m delighted I added it in. If I was to do this look again I would add aquacolours to where the eyeshadow is for a more vibrant effect.

RDS!!!!

When I was asked to recreate this look at the Irish beauty show in the RDS I couldn’t believe it. I was so excited but also nervous! On the day I felt the pressure as I was representing my college Vanity X. It was a great feeling when strangers were coming up taking photos of MY work! It was a dream come true. Even though it wasn’t as good as the first time I did it I loved how it was more vibrant. I loved the whole experience.
