Themes and Themes and Themes

By  |  539 Comments

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.

    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) ? :)

    • Lindsey

      November 1, 2011 at 6:34 am

      • Jenny

    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


    • Izzy

      November 1, 2011 at 10:10 am

      A series based on cultural icons and doing make-up through the ages would be amazing.

    • Bunny

      November 1, 2011 at 10:19 am

      Make up through the ages would be amazing!!

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:24 am

      Make up through the ages sounds awesome! Love it! :)

      • artistka

        November 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

        Make up through the ages is great idea! :)

    • Mindel

      November 1, 2011 at 12:15 pm

      Make up through the ages would be so perfect, and also different from the other series!! :)

    • Nicole

      November 1, 2011 at 12:40 pm

      Makeup through the ages would be a fun one!

    • McKina

      November 1, 2011 at 2:43 pm

      Make up throughout the ages would be fantastic! :D Just the thought of it excited me!

    • Kristina

      November 1, 2011 at 3:50 pm

      makeup through the ages is an awesome idea!!
      everything audrey suggested is perfect and different from everything else =]

    • Sarah

      November 1, 2011 at 7:25 pm

      I LOVE the makeup through the ages idea!!

      Also, you should do two separate themes for WW and FF so we have more variety!

    • Jolayna

      November 1, 2011 at 9:09 pm

      Do makeup through the ages!

  5. Sarah

    November 1, 2011 at 6:00 am

    For FF or I guess even WW, college team colors! I’d loooove to see some Michigan maize and blue Leesha style!!

  6. Joyce

    November 1, 2011 at 6:01 am

    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 :)

    • kirsten

      November 1, 2011 at 9:29 am

      I love the butterflies idea!

    • Sam

      November 1, 2011 at 12:30 pm

      What about not just butterflies, but various bugs and stuff found in nature? There are SO many crazy colours out there on beetles and stuff! Like neon greens, bright oranges, yellows, reds. It could be so fun.

    • Kimme

      November 1, 2011 at 12:36 pm

      Love the butterflys colors are too beautiful not to recreate for FF

    • Jada

      November 2, 2011 at 10:49 am

      Love this!

  7. Elaine R

    November 1, 2011 at 6:08 am

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

  8. Katie

    November 1, 2011 at 6:08 am

    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).

    • Sammy

      November 1, 2011 at 6:26 am

      LOVE the idea of birthstones!!! That would be a great theme! :)

    • Izzy

      November 1, 2011 at 10:09 am

      I love the idea of Disney villains.

    • Bunny

      November 1, 2011 at 10:20 am

      Love the Disney villains :-)

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:26 am

      Love the Disney villains and birthstone idea! :)

    • Kimme

      November 1, 2011 at 12:38 pm

      Birthstones would be great for WW. Love that idea

    • Kristina

      November 1, 2011 at 3:51 pm

      disney villians would be so cool!

    • Tasha M.

      November 1, 2011 at 4:13 pm

      This is an awesome Idea.!!! I love it. I love it.

      i thought that if you thought about items that come in sets…Holidays, Eras(Regency, Flappers, Hippies)

    • Jennifer

      November 1, 2011 at 5:26 pm

      Love this Disney Villians idea!!

      • Brittany CrazyHat

        November 1, 2011 at 5:56 pm

        yea disney villians would be crazy :D

    • Annssan

      November 1, 2011 at 8:55 pm

      LOVE LOVE LOVE the Disney Villians!!!! You just have to go with that one :D

    • Emily

      This would be sooo awesome! I love it.

    • Audrey M

      November 3, 2011 at 1:09 pm

      What a good idea !!!! <3 it !!

  9. Ninna

    November 1, 2011 at 6:08 am

    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.

  10. celeste

    November 1, 2011 at 6:11 am

    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 :)

    • Jenny

      November 1, 2011 at 6:40 am

      Following on from this idea…could you do cartoon characters??? xxx

  11. irina

    November 1, 2011 at 6:24 am

    You should do a flag theme for WW or a mario characters theme for fierce friday!! or perhaps a gossip girl makeup look?

    • Sandra

      November 1, 2011 at 9:00 am

      i like your idee ^^ flags for WW and mario charatars for FF or maybe nintendo charaters :P

  12. M

    November 1, 2011 at 6:51 am

    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!

  13. Lili

    November 1, 2011 at 7:04 am

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

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:27 am

      Love this idea. :)

    • Jenn

      November 1, 2011 at 10:30 am

      Oooo cool idea!

      • artistka

        November 1, 2011 at 11:36 am

        Great idea!

    • Jennifer

      November 1, 2011 at 5:27 pm

      Yum! Great idea!!

  14. Anastasiya

    November 1, 2011 at 7:13 am

    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:
    Ukrainian Easter Eggs:
    Onion Domed Churches:,,,
    Matryoshka Doll:,
    Russian Winter:,

    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!

    • Natalie

      November 1, 2011 at 7:18 am

      holy crap, we posted a lot of the same suggestions 2 minutes apart ahahaha

      • Cher Vue

        November 1, 2011 at 3:47 pm

        Haha really? Great minds think alike? :)

    • Michelle

      November 1, 2011 at 8:47 am

      I really like the idea of the different eras, would love to see what you could come up with.

    • Kimme

      November 1, 2011 at 12:39 pm

      Love the ERA idea too. Very excited to see what can be done especially for WW.

  16. Natalie

    November 1, 2011 at 7:17 am

    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…
    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.
    bahama mama –
    margarita –
    strawberry daiquiri –
    long island iced tea –
    whatever this one is –

    etc etc etc…

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

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

  17. Stacy

    November 1, 2011 at 7:41 am

    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

    • Bunny

      November 1, 2011 at 10:22 am

      Yes yes yes for both of these!!!

    • thea

      November 1, 2011 at 11:02 am

      Yes! I’d LOVE to see a Fierce Friday series based on Sailor Moon!!

    • Jennifer

      November 1, 2011 at 5:29 pm

      LOVE the Sailor Moon idea! Leesha would be great at all of those!

  18. Jessica M

    November 1, 2011 at 8:16 am

    What about some elemental inspired makeup? like Fire, Water, Earth, Wind/Lightning

    • Nicole

      November 1, 2011 at 12:43 pm

      Love this! Elements are a great idea.

  19. Sparkle

    November 1, 2011 at 8:20 am

    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.

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:29 am

      Disney fairies would be cute. Anything mystical and magical. :)

  20. Leïla

    November 1, 2011 at 8:36 am

    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!!!!!

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:29 am

      I love the elements idea and the spices idea. :) Oh, and Circus sounds cool.

  21. Julia C

    November 1, 2011 at 9:19 am

    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.

    • Kacee

      November 1, 2011 at 10:28 am

      I like this flower idea. :)

  22. Jenn

    November 1, 2011 at 10:32 am

    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!

  23. Dani

    November 1, 2011 at 10:41 am

    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!

  24. Jada

    November 1, 2011 at 10:45 am

    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)

  25. Louise

    November 1, 2011 at 11:33 am

    What about doing planets, solar systems and stars etc??

  26. Romy

    November 1, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    Leesha, would you want to do a Pokemon inspired series? That would be soo much fun! :D

    • Angela

      November 1, 2011 at 6:44 pm

      TOTALLY APPROVING THE POKEMON IDEA! So much to choose, so it’s perfect! Like a lavender one for Espeon… <3

  27. Kimme

    November 1, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    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.

    November 1, 2011 at 12:54 pm

  31. Vicky

    November 1, 2011 at 1:09 pm

    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.

  32. Fox

    November 1, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    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!

    • Sam

      November 1, 2011 at 1:19 pm

      I’m a fan of darker makeup, so I particularly like the vampire theme one. But these are really all great ideas.

    • Jennifer

      November 1, 2011 at 5:39 pm

      LOVE the Muppets idea, and the vampires, and the Wizard of Oz, and Tim Burton lol! Great ideas!

  34. Anita

    November 1, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    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 :)

    I gotta agree Fruit sounds best so far! BTW love the look! XoXo

    November 1, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    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!

  39. Avishag

    November 1, 2011 at 3:14 pm

    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 !

  40. Jadedjadedusk

    November 1, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    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.

      OMG! I was totally thinking that. Leesha, do the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, and the Jacksonville Jaguars for me!!!! Also, you should do the girls from Pretty Little Liars.

    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.

    You should make looks for each of the muppets! :)

    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.

    i was thinking Muppets for FF. Like one for Kermit and miss piggy and gonzo. And with the movie and collabrations going on im sure it would be popular.

    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.

    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.
