I was super excited to do today's look. I used one of my favorite shows "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" as my inspiration. Recently, the cast participated in a series of alter ego photos with famous Atlanta celebrity photographer, Derek Blanks. When watching this episodes, I was excited to see some super dramatic makeup. My favorite housewife, Nene Leakes, was rocking a smokey eye featuring red glitter on her lid. I loved it so much I decided to do a tutorial. Again, I used one of my favorite lines, Graftobian Cosmetics.
Here is the final image from Nene's Alter ego shoot. She plays two roles: the stripper on the left, and the uppity housewife on the right. Unfortunately you can't see Nene's makeup up close, but her eyes match her red and black corset top.
