Halloween Make-Up

Option #5: Cleopatra

Here is the final Halloween Make-Up experiment. I chose Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. Though I didn’t use any existing Cleopatras as examples.
I incorporated the Eye of Ra heiroglyphic.

For this I used a blue eye shadow from Sephora and a dark Kohl pencil for the eyes. Then finished with a bright red lip. Purely interpretive.

30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 19 – Cleopatra

Today’s inspiration is Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra.


I started off with some simple gold and black beads.

I desperately tried to string these beads straight into my hair to really go authentic Cleopatra. But alas, my hair would not cooperate. So I strung them on hair colored string and tied them in my hair.

Then I created a faux bob by clipping the majority of my hair up under the rest of my hair right at the nape of my neck.
