uhura-makeup-bag-top

Beam me up, Scotty, I need a new bag, and this Star Trek Uhura makeup bag is just the thing. This eye-catching, asymmetrical foldover design was inspired by Uhura’s red uniform. It has her signature and a Delta shield zipper pull. If you don’t need to store cosmetics, consider using this 7.5-inch wide by 4-inches tall bag as your purse or as a bag to store charging cables and electronics in when you travel. I mean, really, Uhura would like it if you used it to keep your communication devices safe.

Pre-order now to get the snazzy bag in June.

This nightmare inducing image is the work of Alexander Khokhlov who has turned a regular human into a freaky real version of Marge Simpson. There’s no Photoshop trickery here. He’s used only makeup and accessories to create Marge’s face and her iconic mountain of blue hair.

makeup bag wonder woman

Though ladies have been getting more and more geeky products tailored to their tastes, makeup and cosmetics is an area that’s still growing. There’s so much potential when it comes to makeup bags, for example, and I’m glad to see someone jumping on it. Bioworld Merchandising is offering bags featuring Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, and Harley Quinn. You can pre-order now for an estimated arrival date in April.

And even though they’re called makeup bags, they’re great for on-the-go sewing kits, pencil cases, and much more!

Check out the other makeup bag styles after the break.

face paint 1

You don’t need a canvas for paint for when you have your own face! That seems to be DeviantArt user Blueberrystarbubbles’, a.k.a. Michelle, working theory. She loves to paint faces and her gallery shows an impressive body of work. She’s painted characters from anime (that’s Titan Eren from Attack on Titan pictured above), to Disney, and video games. You can see she has skills when it comes to blending depth and different shades into her work and also that she’s great at packing character details into a small area. She’s much better than any face painters we had at the local county fair.

More cool face paint after the break.

This wonderfully creepy face makeup is the work of makeup artist Stephanie Hernandez who has turned her friend Laura Jones into a wooden doll. A combination of both makeup and prosthetics by The Scream Team were used to create the effect.

galaxy chic eye shadow

I’m a sucker for cosmetics with geeky names, so the manufacturers of this space-themed eyeshadow palette pretty much saw me coming. BH Cosmetics named their line of richly colored and baked eyeshadows after locations and phenomenons across the galaxy such as Jupiter, Venus, and asteroids. They’ve also given the set a very appropriate name: “Galaxy Chic.”

The set of 18 colors is only $15… which means it’s going on my shopping list.

Check out more photos of the sparkly shadow after the break.

These incredibly creepy transformations feature Stephanie Fernandez in makeup she’s applied herself. The work is amazing, but even more so when you realize she’s just 18 years old and is self-taught. She’s a freelance makeup artist for now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Hollywood snapped her up someday.

In Matt Smith’s final episode as The Doctor we get to see the young actor become a very old Time Lord. How’d they do that? The show turned to Neill Gorton of Gorton Studios to make the transformation through a combination of makeup and prosthetics. Gorton has contributed his make-up and prosthetics effects talents to the show in the past, but this has to be one of the more striking examples of his work.

If you happen to live in the UK, Gorton Studios is running a boot camp in March so you can learn how to do these amazing effects, too.

frozen eye makeup

Elsa and Anna, the sisters of Disney’s Frozen, have distinct looks and styles. Talented makeup artist Tal Peleg (the genius behind the Heisenberg eye shadow art) came up with these gorgeous designs based on the characters. I’m amazed at the details and precision. Elsa’s eye shadow is all blues and sparkle, while Anna’s is brighter and more warm with purples and golds. This makeup would be really fun to pair with outfits inspired by the princesses.
