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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
