Professional Grade: CV Nation Bonus Scene

We’re shooting the bonus supplemental for the CV Nation webseries… and I find out there’s a new character. That means new makeup. I learned about the character 3 days ago, and literally thought up the full makeup (which isn’t fully realized even now) this morning in the shower. Sometimes you have to move fast.

 This look, while fairly simple, still required a steady hand and a general sense of symmetry. I used surgical tape (using the eyebrows as a guide) to get the lines straight. The makeup is MAC Acrylic Paint (which is a staple for this show), and the silver is MAC Pigment with a bit of FACE Altlier Transforming Gel. General foundation is from the DMK Ebony Series palette.

As you can see, I was moving pretty fast and the back of the makeup isn’t fully realized. For this bonus scene it doesn’t really have to be (it will evolve as the character evolves), so the director forgave me… for now.
The bonus scene will go up ‘before’ the series finale, so they’re shooting pretty quickly. Perhaps by the end of this shoot, I’ll have realized the makeup a bit more fully.
Here’s hoping.

CV Nation Giveaway: MAKE UP FOR EVER Flash Palette

In 5 days, Episode One of CV Nation will hit the internet. I designed (and applied) the makeup for each of the characters, and produced the trailer for the series.

I told you guys that I was going to do a giveaway in connection with the series, so here it is!

 One of the items that I used to create the looks on the characters was the Make Up For Ever Flash Palette. I think that in addition to being a kit essential, this palette is a fabulous addition to any makeup lover’s collection. So I’m paying this one forward in a giveaway.

To qualify, you must be a PUBLIC SUBSCRIBER of this blog. You must ALSO ‘Like’ the CV Nation Facebook Page.  

If you want an additional entry, you can subscribe to the CV Nation Youtube Channel (where the first episode will be broadcast). This will help amp your chances of winning.

Winners will be chosen from the CV Nation Facebook Page, then cross referenced on this blog (you have to both follow the blog and like the Facebook Page to win).

As always, the giveaway is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY.

The winner will be announced on November 15th. 
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

Professional Grade: CV Nation (Post work Designed by LP)

The rest of the character pictures are complete! Whoo Hoo! The most awesome post work was done by LP. You can see some of his work HERE. Dude is AMAZING… he can do art on the most mundane of pictures…

Jason Sweat as CITYWOLF
Aisha as Mme. Mighty
Derek Shaun as TRANSGUARDIAN
Trisha Mann as SOULDRAGON
Sherida Mulrowe as PANTHERESS
 London Kim as AHDAI
Yeah… London’s character isn’t much for makeup. He thinks it gets in the way of him doing his job. LOL I think the show creators may change the character’s mind for Season 2 though. Season 1 is nearly in the can. I’ll let you guys know when Episode 1 goes up!

CV Nation: Two Heroines and Some Makeup

You guys know I’ve been working on the webseries CV Nation. Well, some of the character posters are going up! Makeup by me…

Trisha Mann as SOULDRAGON
Sherida Mulrowe as PANTHERESS
More pictures are coming! The ladies are my favorites though. I really got to play with paints and pigments to create their looks. I’m happy the creators gave me full run of the makeup. No one told me what to do. They told me to have fun, and I did!
