Medusa Makeup with Tutorial by KatieAlves Medusa Makeup with Tutorial by KatieAlves
My last Halloween makeup tutorial of 2013! Go check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QzmXo…

This is my take on Medusa. I've got the traditional snake stuff on the face, but I've added stone along the chest and creeping up towards the face. She can't help it, she keeps checking herself out in the mirror all the time, so she's slowly turning herself into stone. 

I'm a little lost with what to do after so many Halloween looks! Got a suggestion? Let me know what you'd want to see next! :D

It's perfect to every detail! LOVE IT! I think you should do something for Athena, as in the greek goddess. I suggest something with a lot of gold and owls.

I agree with a comment below, something birdlike with lovely plumes would be an interesting thing you could do. This one looks amazing! I love Greek mythology and this is just perfect. You could also carry on with the 'myths and legends' theme too, there are many, many possibilities for that :)

Simply stunning. Love the scale work.

Frankly I wouldn't mind seeing something along the lines of a fallen angle or something with feathers X3

I used fishnets for the scales! I've got a video tutorial on how I did it if you want to see how to create it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QzmXo…

That's a really cool idea! I wouldn't have thought of that ;) Just wondering, do you use one brand of makeup or have a variety of different ones?

I use a bunch of different brands like Sugarpill, Lime Crime, BH Cosmetics and Lit Cosmetics! :D

Nice makeup :) It's one of my favorites so far ^_^ My only suggestion? Maybe next time use more realistic snakes. :) Other than that, it's AMAZING

Not to be awkward, but do you have a detailed picture of the work on your neck/chest? I'd really like to see some of that detail you put in there better. It looks great but it's all blurred :\
