Blog Takeover … ‘Modern Marvels Bad Girl’ Tutorial by Make-up Artist Dehsarae Mahrae

I was on the hunt again on Instagram to find some NEW make-up talent and I came across Dehsarae work! What caught my eye is the fact that she turns herself into different characters with make-up and body paints. In fact designs that I have not seen other make-up artists do. I love how she takes inspiration from a picture and turns into a living canvas on herself.

Dehsarae Mahrae is a freelance & self-taught make-up artist, currently based in San Diego. Check out some of Dehsarae’s work:

For our blog takeover I asked Dehsarae to create an exclusive look for the Crownbrush blog this week to inspire you all and encourage you to experiment with paints and make-up! I love how she has turned herself into a Modern Marvel bad Girl character all inspired by the following picture...
