As a Musical Theatre student I naturally want to play dress up. And because of the course we're forced to dance too Wicked. Okay that's a little over exaggerated. Enough about MT and more about make up! Glinda is a very flamboyant character and full of character. In the musical she wears very sheer pinks and creams and is kept very simple, like the character below.
In the film Oz The Great And Powerful Glinda's make up is also very sheer and light, keeping it very mystical. I wanted to keep this look very true to that. I used only colours from the Urdan Decay Glinda palette to recreate my own version of the classic Glinda make up.
These are the colours I've used. If you want a more indepth look at each colours you can read it here. In order of left to right, top to bottom I used Tornado, Aura, Magic and Illusion.
My nails are very Glinda-ry. Pink metallics and a handful of glitter. See a more detailed look at these nails here. The Lipstick is by MUA in shade 5.
I used Illusion all over the lids and used Magic in the crease and above. Then I used Aura on the brow bone and in the corner of my eye. I then used an angled brush and sweeped Tornado over the top and bottom lash line to emphasis the eyes. I then used a cheap pair of eyelashes to enhance the eyes a little more. In the pictures the make up is coming up slightly sheerer than it looks in person. On the cheeks I used Costa Del Soul, a gorgeous coral. You can see full swatches and the review here. I then used Nars Illuminator in Super Orgasm to give the tops cheeks more shimmer, as you can clearly see in the picture below. My hair has been curled with no heat, you can see how to here. I left my hair in the band for 90 mins before removing it, my hair was only slightly damp when I put it in. I wanted to create a subtle and sheer Glinda look and I think I've achieved it. I'm not a make up artist or have ever been trained in that way - I just love to be creative.
