steampunk nails

If you’d like to add some steampunk flair to your life without donning Victorian attire and adding brass, you could simply apply the theme to your nails.

Actually, there isn’t anything simple about this steampunk nail art by Simone Gilbert. It features an intricate floral design paired with embellishments like goggles, gears, clock hands, and even a tiny corset. Color me impressed.

halloween lips 6

Halloween is only a few weeks away, and that means it’s time to carve pumpkins and figure out costumes. If you don’t want to mess with pulling together a head to toe outfit this year, you can just dress up your eyes or your lips.

Makeup artist Eva Senín Pernas has some gorgeous examples of lip art creations that are themed for the holidays. She’s painted lips to look like a Jack O’Lantern, a witch, cats in a graveyard, and more. I’m amazed by how much detail she can include in such a small amount of space.

haunted mansion makeup 1

Disney Park’s Haunted Mansion attraction has an enthusiastic following, and I admit I’m one of its fans. Haunted Mansion related merchandise gives me hot and cold running chills, and a new makeup line inspired by the spooky ride almost made me fall over and join the happy haunts. Disney recently showed off the first look at the newest Beautifully Disney collection, and it features nail polish, lipstick, and eye shadows inspired by the ride.

The above photo shows of the mini nail polish that comes with appliques featuring symbols and characters from the Haunted Mansion. The colors are: ‘Wall to Wall Creeps,’ ‘Hurry Back,’ ‘Doom Buddies’ and ‘Three Thumbs Up.’ Ahhh. We need all of it, precious.

This incredible makeup is the work of Laura Jenkinson who is a London-based makeup artist. She used her talents to turn her mouth into different cartoon characters. It’s surreal and amazing because the characters are so well-done, and look more than a little freaky when you take them in with the rest of her face.

omote

Projecting computer graphics onto surfaces isn’t anything new, but the technology is becoming more and more precise. Nobumichi Asai and his team have managed to create a system called Omote to track the movements of a human face and project images and makeup upon it to look realistic. It’s amazing that the graphics can fit over the curves and lines of a face and look natural.

Though Asai has worked with CGI projection mapping in the past, his focus has typically been on objects like buildings and cars. Omote is a new challenge, and I can’t wait to see how it develops.

Watch the technology in action in the video after the break.

Director James Gunn wanted the make-up effects for the aliens in Guardians of the Galaxy to look genuine, and special effects makeup designer Dave White was the man who made it happen. In an interview with Co. Create he said:

“I’ve been fortunate to have been around the Marvel world for a little while,” he enthused to Co.Create. “I like to think my own artwork and style has worked well within the universe. James had very specific ideas and I would give an interpretation of what I thought would work. Ultimately, it’s down to what the director wants to see: He needs to go through that process of testing ideas to see how they read in the world he wants to create.” He continued, “There is a retro hint in the [Guardians] designs. I was very careful not to use modern creature design influences that could have fallen short in the unique world Gunn had envisioned.”

These incredible images show just how much work went into creating the fantastic aliens that were scene on-screen.
