Themes and Themes and Themes

Awhile ago, I used to do two weekly videos on youtube called Wearable Wednesday and Fierce Friday. They were basically a way to please everyone- the people wanting toned-down, work appropriate looks had something, and the people who liked bright, in-your-face fun had something. It was also great for me, because each had a specific theme that the looks would be based on (one time Wearable Wednesday was based on Greek Gods/Goddesses, another time Fierce Friday was based off of Candy). This was a great way for me to get my creativity going, and I miss it!

 

The series both sort of faded out for one reason or another, but I am constantly getting requests to bring them back, and since I clearly suck at posting on YouTube if I don’t have a set schedule clearly defined for me, They’re coming back! I already have this week’s looks planed out, but I do need your help for the next few!

I need some ideas for themes for Wearable Wednesday and Fierce Friday! This can be essentially anything- animals, countries, flags, monochromatic, whatever. I just want to know what you guys think would be a fun idea for either category. The easiest way for you to suggest a theme would be to comment below. if you see a theme idea you like, reply to that person’s comment and let them know! That way, I’ll be able to tell what ideas are popular.

At the end of the week, I’ll hold a poll with the most popular ideas, and you guys can vote to determine a winner. I did this in then past and it worked out really well, so I’m hoping it will again! Not only will this choose a winner, but it can potentially map out future WW and FF themes that will happen when this first one is over.

 

So, speak out! Let me know what you’re thinking, and here’s a preview of this week’s FF. I need a name for it, twitter thought it looked like Watermelon :)

    hi leesha

    how about monthly themes for ww and ff, that way you can have like a series, like you did for superheroes, but all in one month.

    sorry if this is already what you have planned or someone has already suggested.

  2. Ramona says:

    You should do fruit! E.g. Citrus orange (yellow and orange), or perhaps a Kiwi fruit (olive green and black, you could tone it down for a WW look and use a cool green and a dark brown). Blueberry (Dark blue, black and mix in shades of purple) ? :)

  3. Audrey M says:

    Hi Leesha, Im so damn glad you bring back the WW and FF series !! =)
    The monochromatic series sounds pretty awesome actually – boring most of time but in betweens your paws, we can expect a lot from this series x)
    A series based on historic, cinematographic, musical, etc icons could be cool ?!
    But I have to say that ONE idea of series thrills me especially. . . Makeup through Ages – begining at the Victorian Era for instance and finishing where you wanna finish lol

    Besides these I lack ideas :/

    So take care

    xx

    Butterflies, they have some crazy cool colorshemes :)
    and i like the idea of the girl above Audrey M about makeup through the ages.
    can’t think of anything else right now :)

  5. Elaine R says:

    I think you should totally do an “androgynous wearable wednesday” . it would be totally different from the brights and could be really cool!

  6. Katie says:

    I think another fun idea to counteract the Disney Princess one you did is do Disney Villains (like Maleficent, Evil Queen, Captain Hook, Ursula, etc.). I think they could be WW or FF depending on how intense you want to go with the look.

    Another one I thought of was birthstones. Have a series based on the various gems used for each month. I think it’d be neat because some could be WW and some could be FF (like March might be WW and July might be FF).

  7. Ninna says:

    Like Audrey I would love makeup through the ages! :)
    And I would probably do that as an FF, because I know that for example, in the 1920’s, they had dark brows, eyes and lips, and it would probably not be appropriate for WW.

  8. celeste says:

    I have an idea at least for one week…Hello Kitty! Also you could do looks inspired by names…like what a name means you will translate into a makeup look. Such as Celeste means heavenly so you do a heavenly look..or Melanie means dark…you get the idea :)

  9. M says:

    Do the Disney movies one again! You did them a while ago but I think you should do an updated one since you’ve broadened your skills and makeup collection. And don’t limit yourself to just princesses!

  10. Lili says:

    How about different types of desserts? Strawberry Shortcake, Creme Brulee, Pumpkin Pie, Etc…
    Or maybe different flavors of Ice cream? Lots of choices there!

    Hey Leesha!
    I love your work!
    I just wanted to suggest you having an Eastern European Theme. I am Russian/Ukrainian and often feel like we don’t get the credit we deserve in the fashion/make-up world. We come from a world of vibrant colors, beautiful designs, and an even more beautiful history. Since Russia/Ukraine are very familiar with winter, maybe this could inspire some Slavic/Winter themed ideas! I would LOVE to see how you would interpret this into make-up design!

    Here are some things that inspire me:

    Hi Leesha!
    I’m so excited for your ww and ff!

    Some ideas I thought would be great are:
    -inspired by different countries like the chinese like more subtle looks, arabic makeup, London looks.
    -Americas next top model photoshoot themes that you liked and were inspired by!
    -different time eras, like 20s, 50s, 70s, etc..
    -you’re favorite magazine cover looks!
    -horoscope/astrological(can even include planet color based looks: mars, Venus, saturn) signs inspired looks

    They’re just suggestions but I can see a little of potential! Haha

    Keep up the great work! It’s about time you come back! We missed you!

    I think, since it is football season… You should do team colors ;) would be kind of cool for some girls to be able to support their team (or their mans team, lol) without having to wear an unflattering jersey! I think it’d be really fun too… here’s a list of all the teams and their colors… http://www.fashion-hound.com/nfl-colors
    and I think regardless, even if some women don’t like football, you could still come up with some BEAUTIFUL looks with these color combos…

    Another idea (not sure if you’ve done this already) would be some kind of space based thing… Whether it be a focus on the planets… or if you just did different things like, one planet one week, the next week a galaxy… IDK lol. But the planets sounds pretty interesting, then maybe a milky way galaxy inspired one as the very last one in the series?

    High school stereotype might be kind of fun… prep, goth, skater, stoner, jock, nerd, etc etc… but more high fashion…

    Different places? Not sure how that would work lol… Vegas, NY, Paris, Hawaii… inspired by different landmarks??

    And… you could always do inspired by cocktail looks… which i would LOVE.

    whatever this one is – http://www.patriciapiccinini.net/pp2/sheen/images/cocktail.jpg

    etc etc etc…

    Decade looks would be really fun… 1900s – 2010…

    annddd that’s it, i’m out of ideas. lol

  14. Stacy says:

    BIRDS!!! You could do different types of birds, like peacocks, swans, owls, canaries =]

    another one i thought of is SAILOR MOON!!!! id LOVE to see your interpretations of all the sailor scouts!!! =D

  15. Sparkle says:

    I think it would be awesome if you did a Disney Fairies theme, Tinkerbell, Iridessa, Silvermist, Vidia, Rosetta and Fawn. Another cool one would be Bride of Chucky. I could probably think of a lot of ideas but right now it’s about 4:30 AM.

  16. Leïla says:

    Hi Leesha!!!

    i think it would be great if you made different Bride styles, like classical, romantic, sparkling, …..or whatever you can think of. :)
    another idea: flower inspired make up… like Rose, Lily, ….
    also,, the elemental inspired make up idea was great!
    oh, and what about Circus?? :) or bellydancer style? or Spices (curry, paprika, pepper…)?

    can’t wait to see what you will do :)

    kisses from Belgium!!!!!

  17. Julia C says:

    Hi leesha!

    I think it would be super fun to see diffferent flower themes :D Let’s say one look can be inspired by a Gardenia and then the next can be inspired by a Rose :D I think it would be really fun to see what you could come up with.

  18. Jenn says:

    I’m with Katie – I would LOVE to see your take on birthstones! There are actually more than 12 if you do the research *wink* so there would be plenty to choose from!

  19. Dani says:

    I love makeup through the ages a LOT, also I would love to see space or planets for FF. I know you would do amazing things with that! <3 looking forward to whatever you do, I know it will be fantastic!

  20. Jada says:

    I know I may sound too…well…brony (although I’m female), but My Little Pony characters may really suit your FF style =).

    Also love Sparkle’s and Stacy ideas (Disney Fairies and both Birds and Sailor Scouts)

  21. Kimme says:

    Hi Leesha
    Since I am always wishing come Fridays that I am on a tropical island laying off on the beach or under a shaded tree sipping a nice margarita or eating some delicious island food. Why not do a Caribbean island look for each island. The islands are always full of color, exicitment and big cultures.

  22. Maria Nicandrou says:

    I’d love to see a series on the wives of King Henry the 8th! i think you’ve seen my comments about it on some of your vids already though :) take care xxx love your vids

  23. Vicky says:

    My suggestion is different US cities or even states (maybe not all 50!), either flags or state nicknames, birds etc.

    I love the through the ages for WW, could even start back with Egyptian. Also the different countries makeup would work well for WW.

    I like the names idea but I think everyone will bombard you to do their name. And please do Victoria if you do! ;)

    Love the fruit theme for FF. Also the bugs! Anything gaming related would be cool. I like the planets idea but it’s quite similar to the gods and godesses. And I think your take on Circus would be amazing.

    ThePinkLadyJ (I’m not affiliated or anything) did all the Sailor Moon looks a while back so peeps might want to check them out.

  24. Fox says:

    Just gonna throw some random things out there…

    7 Deadly Sins /Holy Virtues

    Video Game Inspired (Mario, Pacman, Kingdom Hearts etc…)

    The Muppets inspired (Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozie…etc) Never seen any of those before.

    50’s Vixens (Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly etc…)

    Fairytale Themed (Red Riding Hood, Rose Red, Mary Had A Little Lamb, The Ugly Duckling etc…)

    Vampires (like ww Claudia from Interview with a Vamp, FF Akasha from Queen of the Damned, The Brides of Dracula, etc…)

    The Wizard Of Oz (Not just Dorothy, but the Tin Man, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Flying Monkeys(LOL)…etc)

    Queens of History (Queen Elizabeth, Cleopatra, Marie Antoinette, Queen Victoria, Mary Queen of Scotts..etc) They all were from different places at different times with different styles.

    Maybe even one week a Tim Burton inspired look

    LOL okay I’m burnt out. Hope one of those helps!

  25. Anita says:

    Hi Leesha! I use to love WW and FF. Glad you’re bringing it back. I think a good idea for either one would be based on different types of flowers or insects. The possibilities are endless :)

  26. Jaclyn Klaus says:

    I wish you could do makeup looks featuring endangered species. I think that it would be both fun and informative for people who don’t know about different species who are at risk. Glad to hear WW and FF are coming back :) Those tutorials used to be what got me through the week!

  27. Avishag says:

    Hey Leesha :) I think you should do grunge theme for FF.I mean , there is a great grunge fashion and music but there isn’t really makeup looks that made for it.You could take Nirvana or Pearl Jam as inspiration.
    Or maybe you could do’ White stripes’ or Jack White inspired makeup :) good luck !

  28. Jadedjadedusk says:

    Hello Leesha,

    I had a few ideas for WW and FF and hope it helps out. I’m trying to think of new things that haven’t been done, and as far as I can recall you never did animal print makeup, nor have you done different patterns that I can recall. I considered destination themed makeup as well. I know you’ve done horiscopes before but what about elemental? I was pretty sure you did a celebrity makeup tutorial before but those could continue on if you had good inspiration for it.

    -Jade

  29. Avishag says:

    TIM BURTON THEME!!! Edward scissorhands,Batman,Beetlejuice,The Nightmare before Christmas,Charlie and the chocolate factory,Corpse Bride,Sweeney Todd,Alice in Wonderland ! :)))

  30. Tildz says:

    For the WW vids, you could try and take palettes coming out from different brands, and make one or more looks from that palette so that the people who have it can get ideas, and so the people considering buying it can see what daily look they can achieve with it.

  31. MissR says:

    My top favorites from above for FF are Bugs, Birds, and Sailor Moon.

    For WW I think Desserts is an awesome idea. Make up through the ages would be cool, but it’s been done SOOOOO many times it seems like it would be challenging to make it original.

  32. Emma says:

    I don’t know if anyone else has suggested this but maybe for FF you could do each districts from The Hunger Games because you can do so much with them. For WW maybe you decide on a color for each time, and then you can only use shades of that color.

  33. Amanda says:

    Maybe something based on the weather? WW could be toned down for people at work and FF could be bright and colorful for parties and whatnot.
