Show Me Your Lizard

8 May

I’m not being rude, that’s the name of the last Insane Championship Wrestling show that Angie and I did.  Get your mind out of the gutter, you dirty depraved flogstars!

Or at least, if you’re in the gutter, I hope you’re looking up at the stars.  Free makeover for whoever gets that reference first.

Anyhoo, today’s flog post brings a rare how-to.  I guess I shouldn’t even be calling this a beauty blog in the first place, since how-tos and product reviews are so few and far between.  WHATEVS, my flog, my rules 😛

So, Show Me Your Lizard.  We did a bit of touching up and other misc makeup backstage, but the real action began when we had the bright (vodka-induced) idea to get in amongst the audience and offer our facepainting skillz.

That involved yelling “facepainting!  Get your face painted!  Show me your LIZARD!” at the punters as they entered the venue.  Which for some reason, was extra-hilarious in an Australian accent.  Here are some shots of what we did:

… and now for the how-to part.  You will need green cream makeup and a paintbrush or foundation brush to apply it with (don’t use anything precious as it’s a pain in the ass to clean off a nice brush), an orange bag…

yep

…yellow facepaint and a sponge to stipple it on with.

Whack the green on first, give it a moment to dry, place the orange bag over the top (take the oranges out first dummy) then carefully stipple the yellow paint over the top.  Lift the orange bag away, and voila, scales!  Easy.

Here are some more backstage pics for your amusement.  Commentary from me not required.  Until next time, flogstars! xX

insane championship wrestling

31 Mar

On Sunday night, Angie and I had our first shot as official makeup artistes for Glasgow’s Insane Championship Wrestling. It took place in the ABC…

ICW

… and the show was sold out.

We didn’t end up doing that much makeup to be honest (hopefully for future shows, once people realise that’s what we’re there to do, we will be put to work a bit more), and as you well know, flogstars…  the devil makes work for idle hands.

Which means we had plenty of time to gawp at lots of fit, oiled-up bodies and take billions of selfies.

We arrived around 4pm and had a bit of time to kill while everything was set up.  So we sniffed around.  Access All Areas means precisely that.

the only thing stopping me from trying the belt on was the fear that I would be thrown in the ring if I did

We saw lots of stretching, massaging, greasing-up and rehearsing…

There were lots of opportunities to meet-and-greet…

… and even more time for crazy japes.

As the venue filled up, it was time for the performers to get in the zone.  This involves a lot of pacing, pumping up of muscles by dropping suddenly to the ground and doing really fast push-ups, and muttering while mentally rehearsing signature moves.  Last-minute application of extra oil is optional.

… And then, it’s SHOWTIME!

023 033 035 053 064 076 091

It’s not pretty, but it is spectacular.  Already counting the seconds til the next one at the end of April.  Giddy up!

Time for some AC/DC, don’t you think?
