Scales and all

I also wanted to do a quick post on how we did the makeup for the parade. We had so many people asking about it, that I wanted to be sure and show off our technique.
First, I used concealer and powder all over my face and then put on my eyeshadow and blush. Then, I put a fishnet stocking over my head and Dinne helped dab on high-pigment eyeshadow for the scales. On my face she used a couple different teals and greens. I ended up looking like someone from an Alexander McQueen fashion show with the stocking on my head. It wasn’t the most comfortable thing, but it worked. I then took off the stocking and Dinne helped add a few contour lines with eyeliner along a few of the scales. To top it all off I added fake eyelashes and heart-shaped lipstick. I wanted to add more scales to my arms and neckline, but we ran out of time. Oh, time. There’s always next year!

  1. Amazing – did the Judge’s approve?

  2. Love these photos, what a great event!! And the fish scales…I’m going to have to try that and freak out my high school students come October. Outstanding!

    • Oh my gosh, Linda, you have to send me photos if you try it! If you can get a friend to help, I highly recommend it. Plus, they can take pics and make fun of you while you have pantyhose on your head, which is always good.

  3. I always love looking at these pics
