My entry for MissJBM22's Superhero/Supervillain contest

My dad collects toys and they are in cabinets all over the family home. He doesn't read comic books but he loves the look of plastic toys (he collects certain antiques and also little lead britain's figures, too). I chose the nightcrawler partly because I personally like his colours and partly because I asked my dad and he said he's his favourite... Aw!

I used UDPP, NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk, Kryolan black aquacolor, Fyrinnae Banana Mochi loose shadow, Sugarpill Buttercupcake, Nina Ricci dark blue eyeshadow, MAC She Who Dares mineralize eyeshadow - blue half, UD 24/7 liner in Zero, Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss and Mister Mascara blue false eyelashes. Sadly I don't have a blue mascara atm so I used my Boujois Volumizer in black. No blush today, just my normal foundation and powder, with Sleek light contour powder to warm me up a bit/fake cheekbone-age.

I initially had wanted to do a more mask like look with two white prongs (like Nightcrawler's creepy fingers) coming from the corners of my eyes. But I find a cut crease tricky enough...and I had been at work 5 hours earlier in the day... and and and I've run out of excuses. But this was a fun little experiment anyway. Thanks for looking!

  1. Strong yellow with a veeery dark blue and a cut crease?
    This just hits all the right notes for me :) !
