Makeup LOVES Johnny!

Hi Pouters!

Johnny Depp’s latest movie venture as Barnabas Collins in the Tim Burton film adaptation of Dark Shadows, show cases, rather a lot of makeup. But this isn’t the first time he’s slathered on the cosmetics for a role!

Johnny has made a career out of playing characters with outlandish makeup jobs. So, after seeing a trailer on TV for Dark Shadows yesterday, why should we not revisit a few of these roles.

So I present to you, dear Pouting Readers –  Johnny Depp’s most makeup-tastic roles in order of the heaviness of the cosmetics.

Oh, I feel it unncecessary to point out, but I’ll do it anyway, the majority of the most makeup heavy roles were directed by the one and only Tim Burton.

BARNABUS COLLINS, Dark Shadow

Barnabas Collins. White skin? Purple shading? Strangely pointy hair? What the heck sort of vampire is this? Once Barnabas new look had a moment to sink, I realized that perhaps I shouldn’t have been so surprised.

ED WOOD, Ed Wood

This is more for the cross dressing factor, than the amount of makeup. The Tim Burton directed biopic told the tale of the notoriously terrible director Ed Wood. Ed was also a transvestite, so naturally Johnny ended up dressing accordingly for the movie. It might be a little hard to see because of the film being in black-and-white, but there’s definitely some lipstick action going on here. And of course, black-and-white films tend to use a different sort of makeup than that used for color. Makeup artists – you can probably imagine how much extra it would take to get all that shading and contrast in greyscale.

WILLY WONKA, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

There is nothing too outrageous here, however, there’s an artificiality to the Willy Wonka look that puts it slightly higher up on the not-at-all-made-up-to-violently-made-up scale. He’s kind of got the same coloring as his candy…just a little more subtle, but you ALREADY noticed that, right??

CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW, The Pirates of the Caribbean Series

Eyeliner! Guyliner, if you will! Massive amounts of it! But not much else in the way of bizarre-looking makeup; the rest of it is really just the standard grime that ends up transferring itself to you when you sail the high seas for months at a time. Of course there was that time when he got captured and all painted up by a bunch of islanders who believed he was the human incarnation of their god…

SWEENEY TODD, Sweeney Todd: Demon of Barber Street

Aha! The first of the “Whoa! That’s a lot of look!” looks! With a totally white face and a wild mane of black hair shot through with a streak of white, Johnny looks appropriately serial killer-esque as the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Just make sure you keep him away from the straight razors. Things could get messy.

TONTO, The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger isn’t due out until 2013, but images from it have already begun appearing—and Tonto as played by Johnny Depp has Jack Sparrow’s dreads, Sweeney Todd’s black-and-white face, and a dead raven on his head. Classy.

EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, Edward Scissorhands

Edward’s origins were in a sketch Tim Burton drew as a teenager; and amazingly, Johnny looks exactly like the sketch come to life. Those scissorhand prosthetics are really something else, aren’t they?

THE MAD HATTER, Alice in Wonderland

By far the most makeup-heavy role Johnny has ever taken on. Is that really him under all that? Yes. Yes it is.

Hope you enjoyed going through Johnny’s most makeup-esque roles, in my opinion anway.

SMOKEY EYES by Fi a request

WHY HELLO THERE POUTLINGS

Today I’m going to tell you how I do  “smokey eye” makeup.

This one is for you Hesmarie Hellfire and loyal Hesmarie fans and friends.

Please note there are hundreds of ways to approach this and Sandylashxx has agreed to also give us another post on her perspective.

missfitzstudio smokey eye makeup - BEFORE & AFTER excuse the shit webcam pics!

STEP ONE

Choose the colors to be used; charcoal and grays are the most popular hence “smokey” however brown, violet, or even greens may also be used to create a smokey eye. Pros generally recommend avoiding any shades of blue, because they can make it look like one has a black eye but I’m not here to lecture you on colour choice, I had a maths teacher that rawked blue eye shadow, every day of her life, I think… apart from the day she only wore her eye shadow on the one eye and forgot to do the other eye.. haha… so funny!

Really, step one, is prep your face for doing your eyes… Conceal, cover, paint, lay your foundation and powder and make your skin look flawless and matte and apply your choice of blush/bronzer lightly on your cheek bones. Once you’ve done that – FILL IN YOUR EYEBROWS BEFORE YOU PROCEED.

STEP TWO

Apply a base over the entire eyelid. This may be a primer or even a cream concealer. The idea is to give the eyeshadow a smooth, even base onto which it can be applied, and to prevent it from smudging or blending into the crease throughout the night – I say night because well, don’t wear this as day time makeup…. Gives the wrong impression and all.

STEP THREE

EYELINER… IS THE KEY. Eyeliner should generally be applied to the upper and lower lash line. Those who have larger eyes may go from nearly the inner corner of the eyes to the outer corner with the eyeliner, while those with smaller eyes will most likely want to only line the eyes from the middle of the lash line to the outer corner to prevent making the eyes appear small. Once the eyeliner has been applied, gently smudge it with an eyeliner brush or cotton swab; there should not be a severe line.

STEP FOUR

Apply a darker color of eyeshadow to the crease of the eyelid, I like to draw the shape of where i want to end lightly with an angled eyeliner brush and then blend the shadow in that area to the crease and onto the eye… The color should appear darkest around the lash line and the crease, and gradually lighten as it goes up toward the brow bone and lighten towards the inner corner of the eye; once again, it is important to blend. Apply a lighter or sheer color on the brow bone to make it pop and blend downwards towards the darker shade of eye shadow – so that the line where you have drawn shape of your smokey eyes isnt sharp but soft and fluffy but still defined. Does that make sense? A “smudged,” imperfect look is one of the keys to smokey eye makeup.

STEP FIVE

Mascara is the final step. Curl the eyelashes with an eyelash curler, and apply one or two or ten coats of dark mascara for a dramatic look. One important tip when wearing smokey eye makeup is to make the eyes the focal point of the face, and wear a neutral lipstick and or lip gloss to avoid looking way over done.

ET VOILA!

YOU HAVE SMOKEY EYES.

I used one of my black MAC eyeshadows – cant remember the name and my MAC “Shroom” eyeshadow to create this look on myself.

As well as MAC Studio Fix Fluid NW20; MAC Mineral Powder; Woolies Blush; Benefit Bad Gal Mascara; Benefit Lipgloss – cant remember the name.

Enjoy the smokey look. Try it out and send us some pictures to pouperfection[at]gmail[dot]com
