It had been way too long since I last uploaded a makeup tutorial (not counting the one I did for Bat Babes), so I’m glad I can finally show you a new video. It’s been more than a year since I uploaded my Shironuri Flower Demon to YouTube; a modern, spring-ish floral take on the art of Shironuri (which translates to ‘painted in white’) makeup. Inspired by the Japanese street style icon and artist Minori I decided to create my own look in this sort of fashion and I’m happy I could do it again. This time I created an autumn-inspired look with moss, branches and leaves.
I chose for strong contrasts; the dark burgundy and black against the white and the clean white lenses against the earthy, organic moss. The black glitter on the spiderweb lashes reminds me a bit of morning dew.
For a perfect white base I used Ben Nye’s ‘Clown White’, topped off with Manic Panic’s Virgin Pressed White Powder.
The handpainted details of the branches and the leaves take up a lot of focus and energy, but with some practice and a lot of patience it can turn out beautiful. I used my Grimas water activated body paint palette to mix up the warm autumn colors that I needed. You can watch the tutorial below, don’t forget to leave a like and subscribe!
A special thanks to my dear friend Hysteria Machine, who made this headpiece for me. I can’t stress this enough, but her creations are amazing. They’re sturdy, comfortable and above all they are absolutely stunning. Make sure to check her out on facebook and Etsy.
Happy holidays and a happy new year!
See you soon ♥
