Following is a transcript of the video.
Caroline Aghajanian: Right now, we’re right here with Nelly Recchia, who’s going to remodel me into Cruella with some airbrush and a few brushwork.
Nelly Recchia: I at all times prefer to have a sketch earlier than truly portray on my human canvas. And I needed to maintain some basic components of Cruella as we all know her within the Disney film and in addition combine with what we’ve immediately, with the up to date Cruella. So, proper now we’re going to flip down your eyebrows. We’re not essentially trying to have them utterly disappear, though they could, however we’re positively going to show them down so they don’t seem to be the main target level of your make-up. So proper now we’re simply going to smoke your eyes, add extra drama. So, proper now we’ll use water-based paint and I’ll begin to place the masks and provides it fur, hair impact. And since I do not need it to be too feathery, I’ll load my airbrush with slightly little bit of white and simply mist over so there’s a texture, nevertheless it’s not excessive. I’m additionally including proper right here on the fringe of this facet in your hair. So it is water-based, no worries. It’ll go away. As a result of we’ve the white hair on the opposite facet. So I feel this can assist to mix.
Caroline: I’ve to get into the Cruella mode. Like, I am too good. I would like to only, like, [demon voice] the place’s the viciousness?
Nelly: I like to make use of the comb right here versus the airbrush. And since among the dots are so small, sure areas, such because the nook of the nostril, it is arduous to go together with a stencil.
Caroline: Nelly then traces the 3D corset with eye shadow earlier than filling it in with white paint. She makes use of a foam brush as a result of it helps create exact strains.
Nelly: So, I am simply going to dam slightly bit right here to sharpen this edge. The airbrush paint is completely different from the one which we’re utilizing to color with brushes. It has to have form of a milky consistency and really liquid so that you could undergo the airbrush with out clogging it, however sufficient pigment so it is not watered down an excessive amount of and truly will be seen. Proper now I am simply rapidly placing the indication of the place the lace are going to be, so I do not paint a spot over it.
Caroline: So as to add to dalmatian spots across the corset, Nelly makes use of a skinny brush to create extra practical scattered spots in numerous sizes.
Nelly: You’ll be able to at all times add extra. So when you have an excessive amount of paint or an excessive amount of water, in case of utilizing water-based product, it might run far and wide, which, proper right here, utilizing all black and white, that is the very last thing you need, is the paint to run.
Caroline: Nelly then enhances the corset lace with a deeper crimson. She provides black eye shadow and a few white highlights to provide the lace extra dimension.
Nelly: So, proper now we’re doing the contour of your face. I am simply going to deepen slightly bit extra right here. Contour the jawline. So, it appears fairly dramatic right here, however as soon as it is photographed it truly appears fairly cool. So, I’ll add now a shadow beneath the ribbon with a purpose to create extra of a dimension, extra of a 3D impact.
Caroline: Nelly painted the a part of my arm that was going to be uncovered within the costume.
Nelly: Utilizing an airbrush is nice when one desires to attain a really clean gradient impact. I needed to mix each airbrush and brushwork, particularly for the spots, as a result of I feel portray them give extra natural and in addition extra management of the place you need these spots to be. And the airbrush is quicker. There are stencils accessible to buy on-line. Nevertheless, I prefer to make my very own stencils. It permits me to have sufficient edge throughout the design and stop overspray. The nearer you’re, the extra outlined will probably be. The extra you again up, the extra subtle all the things will look, and softer. My favourite a part of makeups generally is, and notably with physique artwork, is to have the ability to go on the finish with the shading. I actually assume that is when it brings all the things collectively and provides much more dimension to no matter was completed beforehand.
Caroline: To finish the look, Nelly added a fur-like coat, a pretend cigarette, and, in fact, the Cruella wig. And that is the ultimate look. It is positively simpler to channel Cruella’s character with the hair and equipment. The physique paint felt like second pores and skin, no itching or discomfort all all through, so it is one thing I might like to do once more.
