One of the things I love the most about makeup is its ability to impart confidence. The other day I wasn’t feeling the greatest and rather than doing nothing I decided that nothing could make me feel better than turning myself into Wonder Woman!
I remember watching old reruns of the tv show with Lynda Carter as a child and thinking she was so strong and so beautiful…seeing the movie this year with Gal Gadot was so inspiring too!
The latest version of Wonder Woman ditches the classic red lipstick for more of a fresh face. I used Dior Airflash for a flawless finish and NYX Precision Brow Pencil for a strong full Brow.
I also used my favorite metallic powder and mixing liquid by Mehron to paint on her signature headband! I had this amazing statement cuff already but you could easily use the same gold pigment to paint them on!
Of course I had to try a comic book version too! I love all the pop art makeup looks floating around right now…simple black and white lines to accentuate facial structure, add red lipstick and there you go!
I changed the headband to the more classic shape.
I can’t decide which is my fave! How amazing is it that makeup can show on the outside how we want to feel on the inside? I have to admit, it’s impossible to feel bad when your face is painted like Diana herself!
