"Shewolf" (Amateur Special Effects Makeup)

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted in so long, I've been busy focusing on my makeup class to become a certified Professional Makeup Artist as well as finishing up high school so I'll have two graduations this year!! :D

This is actually a class project from my Film Acting class in which I researched Academy award winning makeup artist, Rick Baker, who was the first to be honored with the award for his amazing work in the movie, "An American Werewolf in London." I was required to give a presentation on his work as well as create a creature in his style. Well, since I'm only trained as a traditional beauty MUA, I improvised using Ben Eye cream foundations, concealers, and Mac Blacktrack Fluidline gel liner instead of more elaborate speciall effects make up. I figured why not give the original a wife, like a shewolf! Obviously its very amateur but it was definitely a fun attempt I might revisit for this style of makeup! :)
