This is my lame attempt at a makeover to make me look like a cross between both.

The Dresden dolls:

And me:
***You can totally see my eyebrows cause I refuse to shave them.***




I plan on rocking this look in super casual clothes at first friday this week.

**UPDATE**
Haven'd had a chance to brave this at First Friday but have been practicing. Well I'm still using crappy grade makeup and possibly too much.
(brows are still a problem too)

And some fun with my DS i (my fav. of all my birthday presents)

Practise makes perfect. Smiley Work on blending your whiteface and rouge more evenly, and make the line between your natural skin colour and the foundation less abrupt... it makes a huge difference. Also, if you don't want to shave your eyebrows, you can cover them with mortician's wax to give you a smooth surface to draw the swirly bits on.

You're certainly off to a good start!

Looks like you had tons of fun doing that!

My tip is with the lipstick. What geisha's do, and also the girl in the picture, is not fill in the whole lips. They make their mouth seem thinner so they don't go all the way out.
It's kind of difficult to understand so I tried to doodle it out on my laptop, haha.



btw, your hair is absolutely adorable!!!

The best way IMO to get the white to look its best is to apply it with your fingers then smooth it by dabbing with a make up sponge. Wiping makes too many streaks. After applying the white dust a coat of white powder to lock it all in place and keep finish smooth. After all your makeup is applied, spritz with water to set it in place so it won't melt off.

LOL I knew I went a little over board on the crappy grade white face paint. I'm gonna look for something of better quality.

Also my roommate says that drag queens use Elmer's glue stick for their brows. Has anyone heard of this? It sounded like a cheaper fix than the wax.

Sucks that this is all such short notice cause I've found so many helpful things that can be bought on line. Undecided

Yikes! I'd be afraid to use glue on my eyebrows no matter how water soluble! Wax really works and it's pretty cheap too.

i just love the origami flowers in your hair! i used to make that fold all day and pin them everywhere, like to my teacher's bulletin boards and stuff.

as far as the white goes, i read on a rocky horror make up site that to get the white powdered face to look right, it's really essential to get theatre grade makeup. the girl who wrote the site was a rocky veteran, and a couple of the characters need a pasty white face, but they don't want it clownish looking,  so she advised to stay away from the cheap halloween type face paint at all costs. i'm going to powder my face white for a 1700's make up look soon for the production of rocky i'm in (i'm just a tranny chorus member, so i can do whatever make up i like), and i'm thinking of usring my own naturally pale foundation and powder a white powder like baby powder over it, to see if i can get it even. it's hard to find that right balance! i guess you want it to feel translucent and glowing, but still be very pale and even.

Do you have a link to the site? I love all things R.H.P.S.!

Actually, if you're going for geisha style, they intentionally left an unblended stark edge to their white faces.
