Watermelon optical illusion
Hello friends how are you? Today I wanted to try this makeup that I saw on several Instagram accounts doing a kind of optical illusion with a watermelon, I found it quite interesting and it wasn't as complicated as I thought, what I was most concerned about was achieving a good depth to create that effect of 3d.
I started by cleaning and applying moisturizer on my face and then continue with the glue stick and stretch my eyebrows, applying as always several layers of this to cover my eyebrows very well, then I sealed the eyebrows with translucent powder and with a black eye pencil I began to trace the shape where the watermelon would be “cut” with white body paint I made the edge of the watermelon, and fill in red.
With a fairly light green I painted the rest of my face, then I used a darker green to make the characteristic watermelon stripes.
I realized that the stripes were very perfect or straight, they are not really like that, so with a fairly wide brush I took dark green paint to give small touches that would make a difference and it would look more realistic. With black eyeshadow I shaded the red part to add a lot of depth, I painted the little seeds and finally I finished everything with white, adding little flashes of white in different parts.
I took the photos using a black blanket as a background, but I realized that the shirt I was wearing made a lot of noise in the photos, since I wanted my head to look like it was floating, so I grabbed the first black garment I could get and put it on. on top of my neck to make the background and my neck merge and everything would be black haha.
