Green Day - Shenanigans Makeup by KatieAlves Green Day - Shenanigans Makeup by KatieAlves
Here's my third design of the series! Shenanigans! It's to match the dripping paint on the album cover.

**As a lot of you know, I'm quite obsessed with Green Day. So I'm taking a quick break from scenes to do something *I* actually really want to do! Requests will be on hold until I get these out. Don't worry, it won't take me long!

I'm going to be doing a makeup look inspired by each of the albums. I'll be uploading them in a random order, just which ever album I feel like doing at the time.

If you don't like Green Day, just zone out for the next couple designs. I promise I'll be back doing them in no time!

For those Green Day fans... I'm stuck on Insomniac. The imagery is too complicated for makeup and there are so many colours. Any suggestions?**

Pretty incredible. Originally, I was going to criticize the black outline around the edge of the paint, but I realized that ultimately it was most effective.
100 words is a lot... can't I just get my two cents in and be done with it?
Anyway. This is some really impressive art. It's refreshing to see a form of expression that's this unique. I like the way the design connects with the eyebrow. It's a very dynamic frame, wrapping around the colors nicely.
I should also say you get bonus points for interpreting Green Day.
Annnnnd that's it. Not sure what else to say..
What do you think?

I find this pretty amazing, I really like that melting effect under the eye (that's most likely because I've used that effect in some of my drawings though). I enjoy the use of mostly cool colors and the transition into a more mellow warm color, I find your eyebrow a bit strange (I don't recall seeing one like that in my lifetime), but since you have the make-up on it really contributes to the overall effect of it. Only qualm i have with it is the eyelash, there seems to be too much, i know its a false eyelash but I'd much rather see more of the colors surrounding your eye

I really like the black outline it really makes it pop while the design stays simple! :)

Simply beautiful. I love the colors and the way you blended the yellow, green, and blue so perfectly to encompass the feel of they're music. Totally awe-inspiring!! For Insomniac, it's very pieced together for the cover art, so possibly use angles and some curves to help show this? The colors are where you have me stumped simply due to the fact the artwork is very diverse in this area, though not totally unusual for the band. My best suggestion would be to play around some with different ideas and styles until one pops out at you as the perfect one. I do that a lot when I'm doing my own make up for different events. Who knows? You may find ideas for their other albums by doing so.
