Lianne Moseley, also known as Lustre Dust, is a professional makeup artist who does incredible things with body and face paint. Incredible and sometimes a little unsettling. To celebrate the upcoming release of The Force Awakens, she channeled the Force and used her Jedi Master skills to create a few looks inspired by the original trilogy. She’s attempting to do one new Star Wars design a week until the new movie. So far she’s painted C-3PO, Chewbacca, and Jabba the Hutt. The first two are full face paints while the latter is centered around the model’s mouth.
I’m really impressed (and a little scared) by the paint job she came up with for Chewbacca. Applying so many different strokes to make the paint look like Wookiee hair had to be a challenge.
Lianne has an amusing video featuring the Jabba makeup on Instagram.
