About my inspiration for this bodyart look
The Queen of Hearts is a fictional character from the 1865 book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. She is a foul-tempered monarch whom Carroll himself describes as “a blind fury”, and who is quick to give death sentences at the slightest offense.
In Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts is an anthropomorphic playing card, hence her name. While Lewis Carroll never officially disclosed the inspiration for the Queen of Hearts as he did for other characters, many readers believe that the Queen of Hearts is loosely based on Queen Victoria.
Queens represent the spiritual nature of man and the principle of birth. … Queen of Hearts is a card of beauty, magnetism, affection, and idealism. The women represent the loving mother, sweetheart, or the adored daughter. They are invariably attractive, with a strong appeal to the opposite sex.
I created this look for Valentines Day makeup tutorial video.
Nothing screams Valentine’s Day quite like pink. For the sweetest look, a pink monochromatic look is the way to go. Flushed cheeks, pillow soft eyes, and muted lipstick will make it hard for your SO to look away. Pair the look with a soft pink outfit to stay true to the theme.
For this bodypainting I used Makeup Liquid Face and Body Paint.
As well as Bodypaint Marker.

She–Hulk (Jennifer Susan Walters) is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. … In later issues of the comics, her transformation is permanent. She–Hulk has been a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Heroes for Hire, the Defenders, Fantastic Force and S.H.I.E.L.D.
Lawyer Jennifer Walters’ entire life changed when she received an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner. With gamma-irradiated blood coursing through her veins, Jen became the powerhouse She-Hulk – sharp, beautiful, and sensational beyond compare! ( from MARVEL website)
