NYX Cosmetics FACE Awards 2019 - Wonderland After Dark
I hope you all love my final look for Wonderland After Dark. I wanted to create a detailed, timeless and enchanting piece that was true to myself. I think this design represents my style and I wanted to put "me" out there as my last representation! I also wanted to highlight the NYX Professional Makeup products throughout the whole design. I hope you guys can take some of my tips and tricks and apply them to your every day looks or try something new!
WONDERLAND AFTER DARK | NYX COSMETICS FACE AWARDS 2019 | TOP 5 CHALLENGE | MCDREW
The theme was 'Wonderland After Dark' -- Being a kid who grew up loving the original Alice and Wonderland movie, I wanted to do something heavily inspired by the presence of teapots. I decided to create a dripping tea-spilled look that starts at the headpiece, and melts it's way down the side of my face. Each drip represents iconic pieces of the wonderland movie: the cheshire cat, the wise caterpillar, the queen of hearts, etc. I took iconic scenes like the nonsense directional arrows we see in the film to decorate the opposing side of my face. I had a ton of fun being creative & expressing myself in this whimsical final theme.

I enjoyed creating this look and filming this video so much! I also learned a few new skills during the process, like airbrushing! I used an airbrush to paint each individual leaf that you see (and also don't see in the video, because there were a lot more!) with fluorescent paint, so that my plants would glow in the dark.

For my final challenge, I created a fairy whom, through odd experiences in a magical forest set (constructed for this challenge), after drinking a "reality" potion, is able to bring up various issues of vital importance in today's world.
