Sharon Tate Makeup Tutorial

Years ago, in blog very far away, I made a post/tutorial about Sharon Tate’s makeup. Since I’ve migrated here, but that post still gets a fair amount of attention online, I thought that I’d improve on the old post here, and hopefully make it the first of a series of makeup posts. Because this is an illustration blog, instead of ‘normal’ tutorials, I’ll be using clear illustrations to guide you through all steps.

Lipstick

Lipstick

by Laura

A late Valentine’s Day watercolour painting I did while half-watching a film, as ya do. I seem to draw best while I have some film on in the background, though they become more like audiobooks to me. My family jokes that the test of a good film is whether I draw through it or not. It helps to give your eyes (and your brain) some kind of a break from staring intensely at a piece of paper every so often, so it works for me!

Lipstick is based on an editorial photo of Daphne Groeneveld by Txema Yeste for Harper’s Bazaar Spain, which I loved, but I wanted to bring more of a Schiaparelli feeling to it and make the lips stand out as being heart-shaped. In the end, it’s turned out very graphic and clean after using a limited colour palette and flat acrylic paint-like application.

As always, I’m on instagram and love to hear from you. Please feel free to send me suggestions for what to draw, because honestly I draw constantly and compulsively.
