Black Light Alien by KatieAlves Black Light Alien by KatieAlves
Normal(ish) by day, super glowy universe body by night! These are two separate makeups, or at least I did the first look and then added the galaxy afterwards. My foundation wouldn't cover all the black light to look normal enough for the first picture.

I read somewhere that birds see UV light as well as regular light. So I based this on that idea. Humans would only see some makeup, but to other aliens, they'd light up like a fricking christmas tree!

I have an old tutorial that shows how I use black lights to create a galaxy. If you're interested, you can check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bychaR…

*flails* Thank you so much for the DD :love:

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-07-01
KatieAlves's work has been suggested to me more times than I could count, and it is immediately obvious why. Brilliant with both colour and detail, her makeup is unique and whimsical. Black Light Alien is a perfect example of this.  ( Featured by Exillior )

This is the most creative and wonderful cosmetic art I've seen in...maybe ever! It's stunning. It's otherworldy and extra-human, but still beautiful. Wonderful job!

Black Light makeup... around the eyes. Not in them. 
I also didn't put the bulb in there. That wouldn't turn out well. Haha!
