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:

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 )

Holy *beep!* lol. I love glow in the dark things so much! This is probably my favorite with all the details and the vivid colors.

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!
