Playing with make up ~ Jem and the Holograms inspired look!

Hello everyone! Yesterday I went out and had a ball with Caylee of ♥ Like Candy Floss at Six Flags Over Georgia, so today I decided to chill at home and do nothing all day. Well, I ended up getting bored of doing nothing all day and decided to have a go at a Jem and the Holograms inspired make up look! In case you haven't heard of Jem, it's a T.V series that was played in the US from 1985 to 1988 about a girl, Jerrica Benton, who's father left her a super powerful computer named Synergy that has the power to create holograms. Jerrica uses Synergy to transform into Jem, and her friends Kimber, Aja, and Shana join her in their band as "the Holograms". Now it's playing again on the T.V channel "The Hub" so if you get that channel seriously check it out!
It's a really fun series, and I hope to finish it by the end of summer! Here's the theme song so you can see how super 80s this show is!

As soon as I started watching the series I couldn't stop thinking about how fun it would be to wear make up like that! So I decided to try it while I was at home with nothing better to do ~
Here's what I came up with ~

I love the lightning bolt ;u;!

since its hard to see it all very well in the pictures, here's a short video ~

What do you guys think? Let me know if you would be interested in a tutorial! I'll try to make one tomorrow for anyone who would like to see it!

Thanks for looking!
