Q&A with Ve Neill

Q: WHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND EACH CHARACTER?
A: ACE AND SPADE - I wanted to incorporate the actual playing cards into the makeup. Red, White and Black has always been a fun color scheme for makeup so I started there and let it take me away. I wanted to keep it feminine and fun but bring in the fantasy element with the eyes making them the absolute focus of the makeup. Of course, the red highlights in the wig tied the entire look together.
ALEX - I thought it would be fun to take her innocence and turn it upside down since she is going through the rabbit hole. Depending upon which side you are seeing of her face, she is either beautiful and innocent or dark and decaying.
BUNNI - The only innocent in this bevy of beauties. I wanted to keep her that way but with a bit of mischievous quality. Luscious pink lips, eyes and cheeks with a lot of sparkle.
THE QUEEN - She had to be our quintessential regal vampiric queen. Gorgeous and sleek, she exudes high levels of elements of a deadly fashionista.
TOPSY-TURVY - Who doesn’t love a skull?! However, our skull lives in Wonderland, so I wanted him to be hyper colorful. He is brilliantly bright while exuding the fantasy element.
KITTY KAT - Wonderland wouldn’t be complete without its very own inimitable Cheshire cat! She possesses the definitive Cheshire smile. I also took inspiration from tribal tattooing to create the “kitty” stripes.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO INCORPORATE THE BLACKLIGHT LIP GLOSS?
A: I love mixing it with any crème-based product in the makeup. It works wonderfully to highlight aspects of the makeup that you want to stand out in when you move into the blacklight.
Q: WHAT ARE SOME HALLOWEEN BEAUTY PRODUCTS EVERY BEAUTY JUNKIE SHOULD HAVE IN THEIR KIT?
A: NYX Professional Makeup White Eyeshadow Base goes a long way to jump start any makeup. Couple it with black eyeliner, shadow and mascara to create any beauty ghoul makeup. I love a great red lip lipstick and by all means don’t forget the glitter. Always keep a super colorful eyeshadow palette handy to create just anything you can think of.
Q: WHAT ARE YOUR THREE FAVORITE MOVIES YOU’VE WORKED ON?
A: First of all, I would have to say The Lost Boys, which I think is still one of the hottest vampire films ever. Secondly, The Pirates of The Caribbean Films, and lastly, The Hunger Games Films. I have been blessed with a very rich history of fabulous films so naming three is really a tough job. So, in case you didn’t notice I just named eight.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE TO ASPIRING MAKEUP ARTISTS?
A: Never stop dreaming and practicing your art. It’s what makes us better. Artists, there is room for everyone in the business! Work hard, don’t backstab, be positive, spread positive energy. Support and congratulate other artists because we are all one small big family! And this will come back to you in a positive way.
