Oh boy! Poison Ivy is a fabulous one, and I imagine a numbering ladies have been inspired by Jessica Rabbit. I was always inspired by the Evil Queen *and* Snow White. I read Graphic Novels like Fables and Vampirella and loved the Blood Red Queen of Hearts and Vampirella’s bangs. We’re talking late 90’s illustrations specifically. I loved the extreme makeup, unapologetic and fierce. Über pale skin and war paint one and seductive cosmetic enhancements another.

Of course! Jessica Rabbit and the bad woman, a sort of witch, who plays in ” Bianca & Bernie “. Do you remember? There is a scene in which she is taking off her false lashes and it scared me when I was a baby ! eheh

Yes to both os those! This made me giggle. Ursula rocks that blue eyeshadow with red lips and Ariel’s hair… well screw her, she made me have insecurities about my hair volume. I remember trying to figure out how her bangs just stay like that the whole time and why mine won’t.

Unfortunately, I did take makeup inspiration from Jem and Holograms at one point. I say unfortunately because I do NOT look good in that much pink.

Heh! I have, actually–I hunted around for the same lip color that Azula in Avatar: the Last Airbender (THE SHOW, now movie)before!

I’ve always loved Belle from Beauty and the Beast so for my birthday this year I did a nude smokey eye, big lashes and red lips!

I know I am too old to be into the Monster High dolls and webisodes but I love their cartoon makeup and get inspiration from them. Especially Cleo De Nile πŸ™‚
