Contest entry: Mother Nature

This look is for a contest entry for MakeupbyTiffanyD's contest on Youtube. The theme of the contest was to create a tutorial for a look inspired by a movie. The movie I chose is Baraka, a 1992 documentary about the Earth, nature, and humankind. It is a visually stunning compilation of cinematography and music, filmed by a three person crew over a period of 14 months in 24 countries across 6 continents. It is one of my favorite films and worth seeing on the silver screen if you can see it at a repertoire cinema.

I chose to incorporate elements of nature, growth, night and day into this look, and mirrored the theme into my hair where I used leaves, vines and red apples to create a tousled updo. I have to say, a well-stocked craft store is a veritable goldmine for makeup artists who want to get creative! I sometimes just browse around my local craft store and come up with ideas.
