“Fractured Beauty” how I created the headpiece

Here I share you my progress how I created the headpiece of the “Fractured Beauty artwork

It took me a long time to figure out my vision of this headpiece that should be glamorious and light at the same time


Alice Band
foam rubber (normal and glitter)
Glitter cardboard
Hot glue gun
Sparkling stones’
fairy lights 

Everything started with an Alice Band I connected with wire and sticked on some foam rubber pieces

I created 7 diamond shaped paper gems and sticked it on with hot glue gun

and I sticked on 6 Diamonds of another shape

I also fixed lights behind the headpiece to enlighten it and put some more pieces of glittered rubber foam an silver glitter

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Thanks, Julie

“Fractured Beauty” – creative makeup progress

Last weekend I was in Luzern, Switzerland for a Makeup Competition.

Here I share my weekend with you.

Some video impressions of the competition:

First video / pictures with my beautiful model @roxy.ba at @swisscreativemakeupcontest

Theme of the competition was “ILLUSION”

The beauty we see is an illusion, an interaction of order and chaos. (Order: ordered geometric arrangement of the diamante surfaces, chaos: irregular, seemingly chaotic appearance of the refractions.)
The visual appearance, however, is only a fragment of reality – broken light – to recognize the true nature of things requires more than just looking at the radiant surface

2nd Place Creative Makeup inspired by Tim Burtin at the BokehFFF18 in Capetown

My work for the creative makeup award inspired by Tim Burton at the Bokeh South African Fashion Film Festival won 2nd place! Organized by Einat Dan

I created 2 Makeups in one makeup to show the different characters of Tim Burtons Films – you have to look with different colours of light:

Everyone of us has two faces: the bright and the dark side – with Edward and most of Tim Burtons characters we get to see the dark one, because it seems to be more interesting – but the bright one, the inner soul is hidden. Edward gets missunderstood due to his scary appearance, which hides his true talents. So I wanted to do a makeup showing two sides – the bright and innocent you can only see with the red light
