Midnight Rainbow

Hi Guys & Dolls!

One of my favorite things about makeup is the way it can transform you, create a mood or make you feel like a different version of yourself. One of my favorite ways to alter my ego is with a slightly gothic-drag style of makeup. Not 100% on-point drag but what I like to call girlie-drag: Bold eyes and lips and completely unapologetic about it. My voice drops into a lower register, my movement is more fluid and every turn is drama, drama drama. I teased my facebook fans on Tuesday with a photo and it seems many of you like this type of dramatic makeup. Someone even said they were turned on. Some said it was “too much”. To both comments I would say “exactly what I was going for”!

Now for the bad news: long story short I messed up and forgot to turn the audio recording back on, so there is no “live” intro or exit for this video. When I discovered this I was so gutted because I explained the difference in mood in the video and I just knew you guys would have enjoyed it! Boo! Luckily Halloween is around the corner and I have quite a few “vixen” tutorials planned ^_^

    This is so great. I really would love to see more tutorials that include bold contouring …it’s just so unexpected.

    I noticed for a while you stopped using Urban Decay’s primer. Is this because of the rumor that they would be selling to China, and if so, is it safe to assume they have decided against that?

    Love the look. I so wish I was pale enough to pull of purple contour. <3 And rainbow eyes are awesome. I love how perfect your makeup always is. I can't wait for the day when I am half as talented as you are.

    You’re so awesome! Love the look! You kinda look like an evil Disney queen that got farted on by a rainbow :D

  17. Olivia · August 12, 2012 Olivia

    i love how when you just look at the eyes you think ‘oh cute girly rainbow eye’ then you see the full face and are like ‘WOW!!’ its definitely not what you expect :) :D <3 u cora

    Hullo! I love how daring you are, it’s definitely inspired me to try bolder makeup combinations. Though, I don’t think I’m brave enough to try the lip colors you use quite yet! Keep doing what you’re doing :)

    This is such a bold & fun look. I am in love with the lip color. I am so sad to have looked it up and find that the color was a limited edition lipstick no longer available, and is going for $30-$40 on amazon & ebay! Yikes! I love it, but not that much. lol

I'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts!
