Black Light Alien

Normal(ish) by day, super glowy universe body by night! These are two separate makeups, or at least I did the first look and then added the galaxy afterwards. My foundation wouldn't cover all the black light to look normal enough for the first picture.

I read somewhere that birds see UV light as well as regular light. So I based this on that idea. Humans would only see some makeup, but to other aliens, they'd light up like a fricking christmas tree!

I have an old tutorial that shows how I use black lights to create a galaxy. If you're interested, you can check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bychaR…

*flails* Thank you so much for the DD :love:

Holy *beep!* lol. I love glow in the dark things so much! This is probably my favorite with all the details and the vivid colors.

This is the most creative and wonderful cosmetic art I've seen in...maybe ever! It's stunning. It's otherworldy and extra-human, but still beautiful. Wonderful job!

You put blacklight on your eyeballs??

Black Light makeup... around the eyes. Not in them. 
I also didn't put the bulb in there. That wouldn't turn out well. Haha!
