Hello! Today, we take a quick minute to share a styling trick from our Tank Babes, Real Bodies shoot, where we collaborated with VAIN stylists/artists Jeanne, TT, and Belinda to recreate and celebrate Tank Girl, Fierce Road Warrior-esses and body positivity.
This cool trick was an experiment from Belinda, to create paint splatter on Rain’s face, as if she had played a part in an explosion of neon zombies. The experiment was super fun to watch, because it worked so well and looked so cool. And there is nothing more gratifying than using what you have around you to create magic!
To get the look, B used professional face paint, I recommend Ben Nye Magicake Face Paint Palettes and a hair color applicator brush. ( A large, stiff paint brush would also work:)
How to go Jackson Pollock on your Face.
Here is how Belinda did it……..She mixed some of the paint with a little water in a bowl, just enough to make it pigmented liquid. Then, she dipped brush in paint, and held the brush up to Rain’s face. She ran her finger against the bristles of the brush, sending paint splatter perfectly across the face canvas.
She layered colors of splatter…..Yellow and blue over Rain’s face which had already been shadowed with pink. This was a true art piece in action.
Have fun with this one!
