You may remember Mykie’s makeup work from last year when her shoot of Harley Quinn tattooing the Joker’s back was mistaken as a leaked photo from the then upcoming film Suicide Squad.
Her look was so convincing that DC Live Feed (a fan account for DC Comics fans) unknowingly tweeted the photo as a leaked picture from the new film. Mykie and her Joker partner-in-crime (her friend, Kaleb), perfected the look after Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn guise was first released in 2015. The debate over whether the picture was real or not shows just how talented her makeup work is.
But don’t let Mykie’s stunning beauty deceive you. Since Mykie stirred the debate last year she hasn’t stopped, and nowadays her Instagram is crawling with brilliantly horrific works of art. As a self-taught makeup artist, she has gained national attention for her impressive (which is an understatement) makeup work. She has 1.2 million Instagram followers and 1.7 million YouTube subscribers.
Check out one of her makeup tutorials here:
Mykie has continued to work on her stellar makeup skills, along with the L.A. special effects team known as Glam & Gore. Her Youtube channel describes her work as:
“The swiss army knife of makeup tutorials. Beauty. Special Effects. Avant garde. Industry advice. Products. Foundational teaching. There is something here for everyone, and if you hate makeup, I invite you to at least laugh at my strange face.”
Besides the illustrious and truly glamorous makeup skills that every girl dies to posses, Mykie’s attention to detail includes graphic and gory versions of Disney princesses:
Clearly, Mykie isn’t only confined to gorifying Disney princesses. Her other elaborate horror makeup is to die for and is an incredible inspiration for the upcoming Halloween season.
Oh, if only I could look so Glam and Gorious!
