I realize this is probably a strange source of inspiration, but one of my favorite inspirations, makeup wise, is the guitarist Hitsugi, from the Japanese visual-kei band, Nightmare.  He nearly always has a bit of a frightening look to him, partially due to the contacts he wears, and due to his piercings and makeup, but it is always unique.

A bit frightening right? But somehow I think beautiful too.


  1. I agree with you...But then, I don't get offended that easily. And yet, when it comes to make-up, I'm very modest and far from daring. I do appreciate an artist though, even when they are using themselves as the canvas.

  2. I am pretty modest when it comes to makeup on a day to day basis, but when I am at home I like to play around with different looks. It really is like painting, just on a live canvas. <3

  3. It is kinda freaky but so well done that he pulls it off.
