Saturday 27th Feb
Today I looked into Makeup in film from the 1970’s, particularly in film. With Star Wars being the at the forefront of Hollywood in 1977 I wanted to explore the designs of Special Effects Makeup Veteran Rick Baker and try and recreate them.
This is the reference photo I used:
This is my first attempt at Princess Leia’s iconic look:
I tried to bring out the pink tones I could see while watching the film, that didn’t appear strong in the reference photo. I noticed that I didn’t make my blush strong enough, that is used in Princess Leia’s look to accentuate her youth and innocence. I plan to try this look again later before my final piece to get the colour tones and levels of eyeliner more prominent.
