"man, I'm so futuristic" MISSY's BACK!

The most amazing thing happened yesterday...Missy Elliott released her new single and video WTF (Where They From) after a 7 year break! Her comeback was as legendary as usual, from her moves to her style - all on point! But what made it really special for me was her MAKEUP! OMG. She simultaneously brought back the 90s bold lip, whilst using metallics and glitter to add to the futuristic theme of the video. Also, HELLO - she's donning a blue lip! If you read one of my previous blogs, you would know that I love a blue lip and since then my clients are starting to request makeup looks with a blue lip. 

So after watching Missy's new video, I was totally inspired by the metallic makeup I had to try it myself. Scroll down to see pictures of me and the look I created for a client.
