As I was browsing the web looking for FaerieWorlds photogalleries for yesterday’s post, and came across this blog post by artist Chelsea Rose, who, through a serendipitous series of events, ended up doing some amazing bodypainting on Telesma‘s didgeridoo player, Ian.
It’s almost hypnotizing, the lines and shapes she pulled out of the forms of his body and highlighted in paint. I can only imagine how awesome it must have looked on stage while he was performing!
Chelsea has done bodypainting before, though apparently this was her first time using a male body as a canvas. Check out her bodypainting photoset here, though beware that it contains some very tasteful (and painted!) nudity and thus might not be safe for work.
I freely admit, I’m not exactly a make-up pro. In fact, the make-up I wear to add to my faerie “look” is pretty much it. I do, however, have friends who sweat by Sephora for their high-end make-up needs, both for day-to-day looks and costuming. And now, Sephora has announced on their “Beauty and the Blog” their Halloween look: Fairy. It’s a short little post, but it does include a brief video explaining a bit about how to get the look sported by their model, which is a shimmering, sparkling, feminine fairy. Some might find it a little too “girly,” but it’s definitely nice to see mainstream retailers offering options for faerie costumers! You can check out the rest of their beauty offerings on their main website.
