Snake Skin Makeup

Hello all! These photos are from last summer. The model is Kayla, also known as edible, and the photographer is Aaron Warnick.

Here are some quick tips for achieving a look like this!

First, apply basic makeup. Then decide where you want the snake print. I used Make Up For Ever HD foundation 118 and 185 and mixed them on a palette creating different shades.

Next, you need a sponge and some wire form. You can get wire form at any craft store. Make sure the wire form doesn’t prick the model and hold it up to the model’s face. Next, use a sponge to apply foundation over the form. Be careful not to use too much product or it will all smudge together and become a blob. I would recommend practicing before trying this for a shoot.

There are countless variations on this, so hopefully someone will find some inspiration in this technique and create something new and interesting.
