To celebrate the opening weekend of Man of Steel out in theaters, what’s more fitting than doing a tutorial on the leading lady, Lois Lane? After doing a little investigating myself and studying movie stills, Lois’ makeup is super simple. After all, this is the Daily Planet’s star reporter - I can’t imagine the first thing she thinks of in the morning is how to paint her face. She uses a soft neutral palette that compliments her eyes, but is so easy that it takes minutes to apply.
Apply an eye primer. Take a neutral cream and pat it in the inner corners, sweeping it towards the middle of the lid.
Use a medium matte grey-purple to blend into the cream color from the middle of the eye to the outer corner. Apply on crease & lower lash line as well.
With a darker purple, apply on outer V and crease. You may also use this color to line the upper lash line for more dimension and definition.
Add cream shade as brow highlight.
Apply your favorite mascara, a peachy pink blush and a pale pink gloss & you’re set! Now go out there and break a scandal!

One can only imagine the mixture of ingredients that went into Stan Lee’s new Signature Cologne. I’d suspect it includes hints of mustache, sunglasses, bombast, alliteration and a sprinkling of emotional strain with Jack Kirby. The 90-year-old Lee teamed with scentmaker JADS International, the same company that made last year’s series of Avengers colognes, to develop a fresh scent that actually includes “bergamot, ginger, white pepper, basil and violet, and features layers of cedar, vetiver and musk accords.”
Doodled this out last night. I wanted to make her look a little more futuristic and make it a little more formal (in the story it was a present for Supergirl to wear at a party, I think). Also, I’ve never been a fan of people in the Superfamily wearing masks; a hood feels friendlier to me. Almost changed the yellow to silver but I decided against it. Hope you guys like it!
The cloak coordinated with the red legwear and red gloves creates a better blue:red ratio, and gives the look a more balanced feel. Also, I’m a big fan of capes redesigned as mod hooded mini-cloaks, so yeah.
