A voice called me, from deep in the sea, “Dry your eyes my dear fishermen your ass belongs to me” – Cruel Mistress, Flogging Molly
Hello Guppies and Dolphins!
Today I bring you the Sea Queen. I’ve always been a little obsessed with the sea. I grew up listening to a lot of Celtic music (traditional, rock, Scot fusion, Irish punk, etc) and I love sailor songs. One that I drew a lot of inspiration for this look is Flogging Molly’s Cruel Mistress. The song is about him not getting over a girl on dry land and then setting out for the sea to get over her (it doesn’t work). Now the Sea, turbulent, cold and ruthless is his cruel mistress.
I like the idea of a sea queen that is beautifully barnacled and inviting, hiding her ruthless nature. This video was a blast to create, I hope you enjoy it!
This video is part of an EPIC collaboration of 7 of YouTube’s finest makeup artists to bring you a collection of “Queen” themed tutorials. Links to their tutorials can be found in my video below.
