Happy 2nd FRIGHTFEMMES FRIDAY! If you missed Vol.I CLICK HERE to see last week's look! Vol.II is something special. You see Laura & Ruthmarie have a deep love for garments. I don't know if you know this, but Laura studied Fashion Design. Spent many years in fashion merchandise and has designed many pieces herself ( and continues to in her accessories via @twgdesigns) AND Ruthmarie who we graduated from FIU Theatre (that's where we met) specialized in set design AND costume design. Why am I talking about this, you ask? Well because this week they get to highlight their skills in costume this week along side makeup! This week's looks are inspired by Disney's live action film, CRUELLA!
"The good thing about evil people is you can always trust
them to do something, well, evil."- Cruella
I don't know about you, but everything Emma Stone wore in that film, I WANT! The countless black ensembles need to be in my closet this entire fall and winter season! The real show stoppers on the film were two costumes and I'm so proud if my girls for showcasing these beautiful pieces! Cruella has her "Past" costume dress and Dumpster Rococo dress that really stand out in the film! If you have yet to see the film, I promise if you enjoy good music, fashion and Emma Stone, this movie is for you! I also feel that if you have a special squad that also enjoys the vibe that is Cruella, I would consider have each one of your people dress up as one of the many options from Cruella's closet!

CRUELLA: The Future
Notes, tips & buys on this look below:
"The Future" look of Cruella is edgy, fun and affordable to do if you need a quick costume in your arsenal. The only thing I recommend getting is a wig to "complete" the look. The plus side is, Cruella can be paired with many looks, so you will always have many options and lots of use of your wig in the years to come! The Future costume consisted of a leather jacket, sequence gold pants, boots and an almost "Joker-ish" painted on mask! That's it, simple but edgy, brownie points if you ride a motorcycle or know someone who could help you make an entrance at a party, just like the film!
TIPS & TOOLS|
Before I started the look, I thought of two ways to create the painted on mask. Use a white eyeliner pencil and draw the letter directly on my face OR make letter stickers with my cricut, to then place on my face to spell "FuTuRe" (if you don't have a cricut, buy letter stickers via your local craft store), followed by painting my face with my favorite water activated CAKE MAKEUP. When all is dry, peel off the letter a boom! I chose the white eyeliner instead because I felt comfortable writing it on my face.
Using a firm thin painting brush, I was able to line the letters with my cake makeup and fill the rest of the "mask" in. To stop the letters from looking starch, I used my concealer and carefully painted on top of the white. Worked great and dried easily.
Lips, well you can either be fast with this or not. The fast option is using a liquid lipstick in a cool tone red, then dabbing on cosmetic glitter from Nyx and going about your day.
Instead I went for the red rhinestones and eyelash glued them on. If you ever are one with have a sensitivity to latex or adhesive, DO NOT CHOOSE THIS OPTION. I recommend starting with the corners and cupids bow, then line the edges of the lips. Afterwards just start popping them in, you can cheat on the bottom lip and not worry about filling every crevasse. The second thing I did was sprinkle in glitter so that any stickiness I may have, can be filled with glitter and create more of an illusion that the lips are fully bejeweled. For removal use coconut oil, baby oil or spirit gum remover to remove jewels and glue. The jewels do stay on and I even drank some water, though if you are at a party I say bring your own straw!
