For those who follow me from my previous blog, you know that I’m a comic book lover. I’m happy to be able to share this passion with my children. All three of my kids read and enjoy Marvel comics, so when the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) started taking off, they decided they wanted to delve more into it. It all started with a single comic convention and the next thing I know, my husband and myself are learning to make props, sew and do makeup. My daughter has cosplayed Kate Bishop, Psylocke and Peggy Carter and Tony Stark and Gamora.
With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, my oldest daughter wanted to be prepared for the movie premier. And like any mom would do, I took the time to do her makeup. My daughter recently had her hair dyed, so we opted to go with her hair and not a wig. Also, since I’ve been meaning to have a good recording of the whole process, the hubs thought it would be a good idea to try out GoPro for it. Take a peek and let me know what you think!
Below is a list of what I used:
Face/Body Paint: Wolfe FX Hydrocolor in Mint Green
Eyeshadow/Contour: NYX Baked Eyeshadow in Kush
Highlight: theBalm Mary Lou Manizer
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked Smokey Palette (Armor, Smolder, Radar), Urban Decay Single Shadow in El Dorado
Eyeliner: Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil in Black
Mascara: Fantasy Makers Color Blast Mascara in Green with Envy
Lips: Ben Nye Creme Color in Kelly Green
White Accent: Ben Nye Creme Color in White
Dark Accent: Rimmel London Kate Gel Liner in Emerald Green
And here’s one more shot!
Hope you enjoyed this! Did you get a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? If you did, what did you think? Let me know in the comments. This isn’t a sponsored video or post, I just really wanted to share the time lapse and focus on the makeup. Also, do us a favor and visit my kids’ cosplay Instagram, Avengers Academy Cosplay!
